We stayed one night in this charming hotel a little west of Oslo city center. Just a few stops with the tram from the city center. The hotel is stylish, cozy decorated and well maintained. Good and large breakfast. Free dinner / supper included. Wifi working. If not for the cheap toilet paper it would have been a candidate for... More

I just love staying here, and it has become my base in the Norwegian capital since a few years back. Good value for money, nice clean rooms and amazingly friendly staff. Light snack-style dinner is always included in the rate. I don't eat it every night but it is nice to know that it is always there if I can't/wont... More

Very nice hotel in best part of Oslo. Quiet and safe area, only 10 minutes walk to city center. Interior is charming and the staff is very friendly. Evening meal is included in the price, which is very comfortable. I have stayed at many hotels in Oslo and this is still my favourite hotel.

We went here at the end of November for 2 night/3 days and stayed at the Clarion Collection Hotel Gabelshus and what an amazing time we had! Every single member of staff was delightful. The food was good especially as they offer a free buffet for dinner which can come in handy especially in the winter. The front desk when... More

This intimate hotel has a modern, yet cozy style, you feel at home right away. Nicely made interior but perhaps a bit too dark colours. Clean room and a nice bed. Great breakfast and service minded staff. Free WiFi. Walking distance to the shopping street "Byddøy alle".

Gabelshus is located in a residential area in central Oslo - it takes no more than 10 - 15 minutes to walk to Aker Brygge and Nationalteatret and about the same to Frogner Parken. In the summer the hotel has a rural feel and in the noisy Christmas Julebord season it has the blessing of being quiet. The welcome is... More

Having just been in Asua enjoying the splendid hospitality of large five star resort hotels it was a welcome change to stay somewhere with warmth, character and friendliness for some reason I was not expecting, therefore, a great surprise to me. I had a cool, minimalistic but comfortable room with a balcony and FREE WiFi. The breakfast buffet selection and... More

My client booked the hotel as it was one of the very few that could offer both a meeting room and overnight accommodation. The hotel charged 200% premium on the room vs what you pay through online booking platforms (junior suite at NOK 2770, i.e. rack rate) as they knew we needed the meeting room so charged us rack rate...

Very nice and cozy atmosphere. But the hotel need some renewing, which I guess is what they were doing during our visit. But the staff is very friendly, average breakfast, good drinks and common area to chill. We stayed in a room in the higher floor, which does not have an elevator arriving, so we had to take inside stairs... More

I just love this hotel. So central and so quite in one of the most expensive areas of Oslo. Walking distance to Aker Brygge and National Theater. The cosy small hotel, very well decorated with typical Norwegian breakfast and free dinner. The rooms are small indeed, but this is how it is in the heart of Oslo. So what? Drink... More
