She ran the place in a caring and authoritative manner at daytime and used to relax with her guests smoking a pipe in the evening.

Hotel's Favorite
I was in Oslo for the Abel Prize festivities and stayed at the Hotel Gabelshus. It was a lovely hotel. I was disappointed to be so busy that I was not able to take advantage of any of the meals at the hotel, but there was gorgeous looking food available. The room was convenient, good work space, great TV, the windows opened! The very best part was the ability to walk everywhere from the hotel easily and quickly. Even on the last night, when my companions were taking taxis from the dinner site, I walked back to the hotel. It was about 3 miles (5 km) walking or a 25 minute taxi ride (because no direct route driving). Great walk after dinner. Also, when I arrived at the airport, there was a mix up in my transportation to the hotel, so I ended up taking the train and then one of the electric trolleys/shuttles in the city. That was extremely easy. Oslo is an amazing city. I highly recommend traveling there and this is a great hotel to stay in.

In a beautiful and quiet part of Oslo, about 3-minutes from tram stop and 10-minute or so ride to central Oslo. My small room was pleasant and very clean. The public spaces are very pleasant. The breakfast is very good with a zillion choices and the complimentary dinner was pretty tasty and is a great plus for saving money and especially for a solo traveler who may not relish going out to eat on her own. There is a an optional outside eating area on the quiet street. My room faced the street and there was a bit of noise from passing people and hotel guests on Saturday night but not too bad at all. I was offered a room in the back with a small balcony that was very private and quiet but it felt a bit isolated and claustrophobic somehow so I opted for the street room. The Frogner district where the hotel is located is just so beautiful to stroll around. You can walk to Frogner park from here.

We spent two evenings here, the whole experience was a pleasure. The tram is close for access into the city or for good local restaurant options. The room was spacious and just worked for us. The breakfast was excellent in terms of quality, variety and access. You get a full service hotel experience in a comfortable small hotel manner and all with no fuss from the very helpful hotel staff. There is an added benefit of a supplied 3 course dinner ... if you need it. There are plenty of local options in the area.
