Oslo, Norway

If you don't expect a romanic hotel, but a place that gives you a good bed, clean room and a good shower, this is the place for you. Very good price a short walk from "everything" in central Oslo. Recommended

Hotel is very modern and was pleasantly happy to be able to check in early! Walking distance to Oslo S station and a few major attractions in Oslo city. They have a fridge which is useful but there was no TV. There was heating in the toilet which was great! Room was spacious with walking space to spare.

Hi tloblived! Thank you for your kind review of our hotel! So glad to read that you were happy with your visit! We always try to arrange as many early check-ins as we can, but it is difficult for us to promise beforhand whether it will be possible or not - as there are many factors that influence our availibility....

We stayed here for two nights. Very close to the train station but located in a shady area of the city. I almost got pickpocketed near the hotel. Watch out!!! The room was ok. No hairdryer and only one pillow that is as flat as a pancake. So make sure you ask for another one when you arrive. The toilet...

Hi Fiona V! Thank you for your kind review of our hotel! We totally agree that Tromsø is a great city, but we actually prefer Oslo ourselves - but we might be a bit biased. :) As in all major european cities, there are sometimes unfortunate events occuring, and to travel with caution is always important.

For the budget conscious and those looking for a no frills stay, Citybox is the way to go. It's well maintained, fairly modern, clean, quiet, and the greatest of all, it's very centrally located as it is only a few minutes walk to and from many of the city's highlights. The concept of this hotel is outstanding and should be...

Citybox Oslo is located very near to the central train station. It's easy to check in and check out. The hotel staff is friendly. However, the door of the bathroom is very heavy so it's difficult to open/close it.

This is a great, functional, economical hotel in the heart of Oslo. Walking distance to pretty much everything. Clean, large enough, no frills, but everything a person could need. Since it is about half the cost of most Oslo hotels, we felt ahead of the game. Highly recommended UNLESS YOU ARE DRIVING. Parking is a nuisance. Not only is the...

Was impressed with the self check inn computers, the hotel had two nice TV lounges downstairs, and a very nice pizza restuarant connected to the hotel. The room was nice, very modern style. The only comment I will make is that I could hear the elevator ding from my room constantly, but it wasn't too bad.

I was there for 4 nights and was in a 1 bed room.

We arrived at this hotel not having our original reservation number sent to us directly from Citybox, we were using our expedia confirmation (my fault) so I was unable to self check-in.

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
