Keep in mind that Oslo is an unbelievable expensive city where human labor is beyond expensive. So overall: 1- The hotel is in the center of Oslo. It is very safe and you are within walking distance to everything in the city. 2- The rooms are strange. Ok, they come with a bed, and toilet...but there is no wardrobre...Where do... More

Hotel in a good position (100mt from the Central Station). A bit impersonal (check-in & out by a Pc) and forniture by Ikea. Room not so clear and just one towel for all. They did not clear my room in my 3 days stay. Mattress and pillow unconfortable. The bakery close to the hotel to have breakfast very good.

In a nutshell: Citybox is a GREAT choice and I really love that they are trying to make Oslo affordable and more accessible for a wide range of audiences. You heard it all from the other reviews: you can't beat the location, the prices are the best in the city, and the accommodations are comfortable. You won't be greeted with... More

Fantastic. We stayed here for three days. Check in was automated but idiot proof. The decor through out is simple modern and clean. The rooms were fantastic, basic but couldn't want for more. Very very comfortable. There is a kitchen area down stairs open to all. The location of citybox is excellent. From the sights to shopping to travel amenities.... More

I stayed here for 3 nights during a recent long weekend break in Oslo. We found our twin room to be very clean and pleasant with comfy beds and a good en-suite shower room. The location is also very good indeed with the hotel less than a 5 minute walk from the main train station on a pleasant safe street.... More

Citybox Oslo was very easy to find, simple but it offers great location, we found it after midnight with no trouble. Modern check-in machines works 24/7.

The hotel is very conveniently located and is within close proximity of the central station and the opera house, they are both very short walking distances away. The self check in service is quick, easy and efficient to use. The concept of self service/communal area is something which I have never seen in a hotel before, but it is inviting... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Citybox is a modern economy hotel with low prices. Our rooms are cheap because we keep our running expenses down while still offering our guests what they really need: a simple and stylish room with a delicate bath, a comfortable bed, a good chair, a desk and a place for hanging your clothes. Wireless broadband is available free of charge throughout the hotel. Citybox combines simplicity with comfort and low prices. The hotel is located in the centre of Oslo, 5 minutes walking from Oslo S, train staion. If you want to spend your money on something other than a minibar and room service, then Citybox is the place for you. Oslo is full of bars. Why do you need one in your hotel room? We recently teamed up with a cafe that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner for all our guests, and also provides a 10% discount for our guests. In addition they also cater to our meeting rooms. The cafe has a direct entrance from the hotel. ... more   less
