Nice Hotel near the city-Center will good Service. We enjoyed our stay for just one night on a stop-over in Oslo. Good breakfast and evening-meal with choice of different food. Quiet rooms for the night.

This hotel is clean, quiet, and well-run, with courteous staff and a nice breakfast buffet. An easy tram ride or walk from the city center, it is also quite close to some excellent restaurants, so that exhausted museum-goers can enjoy fine dining after a nap, if they don't want to dine in the hotel. The only downside for me was... More

This hotel is located in an upscale neighborhood, from the outside, it is an ivy covered mansion. Inside, the room we had was spacious, clean and pared down. They offered both breakfast and dinner buffets. And given that we arrived in Summer, many of the local restaurants were closed for vacation it was a life saver on our first evening.... More

This was a great place to stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast, dinner and waffels provided were also a bonus especially as food is so expensive in Norway. The hotel has a lovely warm, welcoming feeling and there are lots of areas where you can relax and read, tall or watch TV, away from your room.... More

A very good hotel. The provision of an evening buffet was very welcome and breakfast was excellent (even by Norwegian standards). I like the outside seating area and library. Room and bed were very comfortable. The surrounding area is pleasant, but it is a slightly outside the core city centre. However, it is close to bus and tram routes both... More
