Enjoy your breakfast or complimentary evening meal surrounded by murals reflecting the history of the area. The special atmosphere of the dining room and lounges around has been a background of various fashion shoots.Hotel Gabelshus offers a range of salons with a relaxing atmosphere- the hotel library has a dignified style where you can relax with a book, watch TV or enjoy a glass of wine. The so- called fireplace room is furnished with antique furniture and calming colors offering relaxation in comfortable armchairs in front of the open fireplace.Hotel Gabelshus has a long and exciting history. The mansion was erected in 1912 and was originally a lodging house. The three first managers and owners were women, one more special than the other. Miss Sommerfeldt who ran it from 1933-45 lived herself in the building with her two parrots that had free access to anywhere in the building. 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.

I have stayed at the Gabelshus several times through the last four years, and I will keep going back there every time I am in Oslo overnight. Everything about the hotel is nice, starting with the lovely old ivy-clad facade and the cozy, home-y feeling in the dining room, and the

Dear Glossoptraveller, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. While I wish you had a better experience, it is feedback like this that we learn from and use to improve. We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it's apparent in this case that we fell short to satisfy your expectation. My colleague Gisela at the reception remembers you and your wife very well from both checking you in, during your stay and checking you out. She talked with you during your stay and when you bought beverages from her and you stated nothing about your disappointment. When addressed with the case she is so sorry that you were offended by the comment of giving us feedback after your check in about your disappointment, She only meant that she would have done what ever was in her power to change you to a room that you would like as we have many rooms of different shapes and sizes and amenities. However this is your experience and you are allowed to say what ever you like about us. The room is of the standard and look as our guests can see from the pictures here and on our website. I am happy that you liked our breakfast and the premises otherwise. Yours truly, Karl Einar Sundby-Bagaas General Manager

Stayed here for a course. The single rooms were small, had some marks of wear and tear, and was cold. But luckily I didn't spend much time there. What makes this hotel great is the food. Breakfast was fantastic, so was lunch and our groups dinner was fantastic. I can't have

It is just the buffet but they had a selection of hot and cold food which was all fine. I think there were restaurants on the main road about 10 mins away. But to be honest my dad and I were tired and it was perfectly good and grateful to be able to stay in. You can order drinks separately. The food is all included in the room rate as well.
