The hotel is centrally located 5 minutes walk away from the Cultural HistorynMuseum and also ferry to Museum Island. The staff are very friendly, knowledgable and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable and the breakfast is excellent especially the freshly made waffles

We booked two rooms for a stay of 3 nights. The property is a classic building very well located close to the train station where the train from the airport operates (then we found out that there is a closer station). The neighborhood is really nice, parks and very many restaurants are at your front door. A commercial area is... More

This hotel is well located to walk to all the sights and to the train station. The street is pedestrian in summer so it was quiet from the traffic. The main noise came from the fact that our room was over the sports bar so every evening football was on it got noisy late at night. Breakfast was lovely and... More

Loved Oslo especially the Opera House, and surrounding area. Very good for a long weekend trip. Start saving Norway is expensive but worth it. Hotel room small but well designed, in central location. Hope to go again soon.

This is a charming hotel in an excellent location. Situated very near the university and on a sidewalk lined with cafes, it's a nice place to spend one or two evenings. The room was a little dated and the front desk staff were rather cold. Breakfast was very good. I would stay here again. It's comfortable.

The location was terrific, and very easily accessible for transport to and from airport and getting to major sights. We had a Junior Suite, and it was very spacious and clean. The front desk staff was very helpful. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and tasty.

Great location (downtown but only a mile from the waterfront and close to public transport), with traditional façade, but limited wifi, limited eating options, small rooms, no gym. It is what it is though, good to use for a base for sleeping and heading-out each day to explore or do business.

Location is right on the pedestrian mall that runs from the train station to the palace. Lots of places to walk to for sightseeing and food (albeit, tourist food). Stayed in a single room - larger than most European single rooms (twin bed, desk, couch). Could not get the air conditioning to work, but opening the window was fine (noise... More

The location is absolutely terrific. Within walking distance of most of the main sites and attractions (the National Gallery, the Akershus Fortress, the Royal Palace, and the ferry docks, to name a few), and directly on the main pedestrian thoroughfare in the city. The hotel is basically average when compared to most European hotels, and you can see where the... More

A perfect location in the heart of town. The clean room with enough space for two was nicely decorated and all the public areas were well maintained. Complimentary tea and coffee was a nice touch. Fresh breakfast buffet was well presented and very good. Thanks for the vote if you found this helpful.
