Staff very welcoming. Nice room with plenty of space. So dood to have coffee, tea and water available all day with sweet snacks fro 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. We opted for a dinner and bed and breakfast rate. All meals were well presented and there was a great deal of choice. A 10 minute walk to Oslo Fjord and...

After two nights in an awful local hotel, this was a little treasure picked out for me by one of the team in our Oslo office. From the moment you walk in, you feel that you are in a good space and across three nights - albeit at ridiculous prices but that is the Oslo effect and a lack of...

Clean, very friendly staff. Nice room, reasonable size. Fast Internet. Great breakfast, really nice spread of local and international food. Classic decor. Tiny cramped bathroom and shower was so small I couldn't turn around. But overall a nice place.

Stayed here during a work visit to Oslo in Feb 2017. It was within walking distance of the station (maybe about ten or fifteen minutes). The check in staff were friendly and helpful. The room was large with a comfortable bed, and big enough bathroom. All were immaculately clean. The wifi was a bit dodgy in the room but aside...

I could not find any fault with this hotel. It was spotlessly clean, the room was lovely, the food was good and the staff very friendly and welcoming! It was easy to walk to from the rail station and also a perfect location for the Colorline terminal which was also within easy walking distance. I would most definitely recommend it!

I had a superior room with a bathtub and balcony. The room was perfectly prepared with fruit, drinks and chocolate. 3 meals included is generous and made our day even better! I'd love to stay here again.

Gresy hotel. Quiet location but near the centre of town. Comfortable bed. Clean room. Lovely staff. Price includes breakfast, afternoon tea and cakes and dinner. Breakfast was really good with a wide selection of tradition Norwegian choices. Loved it and would go back 😁

Nice located, but under renovation. The rooms need renovation and the beds are bad. One can hear every sound from the neighbour room and from the corridor. The evening buffet does not taste very well and the receptionist has not improved . Nice house but renovation of the rooms and all building is an urgent matter .

A great hotel, with an excellent breakfast. The personell was welcoming, the junior suite was ok, the leather chairs was worn out. I would have given the hotel 4 out of 5 if it had have hot water in the showers. Both days of my stay, stepping into the shower at 0745 the water was ice cold.
