This older hotel is delightful, except for the street noise. Rooms are well maintained, staff is helpful and responsive, breakfast buffet is very good. First night was fine, second though, even with the windows shut, the noise from the bar across the street woke me up at 02:00 am. And it kept on till around 03:30.

It is a warm inviting atmosphere in a classical tradition. It is an older hotel, but well kept. The street noise gets a little loud if you have to have the windows open. There is no air conditioning so if it is warm you need open windoows. The breakfast buffet was good with many choices. The location was good as... More

My favourite hotel in Oslo. The Winter Garden/Library bar is an experience in itself, live piano music, great atmosphere, excellent a la carte sandwiches and fabulous cakes. A preferred hotel for low key national and international celebrities (once I checked in next to Sting, another time the national soccer team of Norway). Central location, quiet street right behind Carl Johan,... More

I stayed there for 6 nights. Hotel is located on a quieter street in bustling Oslo, but just block or so from the attractions. It is an older hotel, but it is so well maintained and refurbished that it is better than any of the newer hotels. It is warm and welcoming. Breakfast was high quality and good variety. Airconditioning... More

Traveling with friends, but staying in a room for one person, I was stunned at the difference in room quality. We paid the same price, but I was put in a very small room with one twin bed stuck into a corner. When I asked for a room similar to my friends, I was given the same small room, but... More
