Travelers' Choice 2019 Winner

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.

Location of the hotel good. There is no permanent reception desk at the hotel. Finally, we found assistant to help us. The cost of overnight rather high for so small rooms. Bonus to stay here - proximity to shopping area and attractions in the center of oslo

Hi leila85! Thanks for your kind review of our hotel! Please note that our response is based upon a googletranslation of your review. We do agree that the rooms categorized as "small" are indeed just that. If you feel the need for more crawlspace, we recommend upgrading to a standard room for only a small extra fee. Anyway very glad to read that you liked our location :) Thanks again for your feedback, and we do hope to see you again! Best wishes, Citybox Oslo

This place is a joke. It’s a small step up from a hostel basically. Cramped, claustrophobic room. The bathroom feels like a public toilet. Noisy as anything from the street. 2 towels provided. No floor towel, no hand towel (what kind of a “hotel” does that?). Staff were

The most important thing is this hotel close to Oslo S, about 400 meters. So for a traveler like me who drag a four wheel luggage along the street, it will much help. Even this hotel concept is self check in and check out, you can still push the button “help” for asking hotel

Hi rinieva! Thanks for your kind review of our hotel! We love reading feedback from guests that seems to understand and appreciate our concept! We do our best to offer a simple and modern solution at what we consider to be a fair rate! :) We do agree that some of our rooms are small, and in particular the rooms that are categorized as just that.

There are staff there 24 hours a day. Whether the hotel is suitable for a one-year-old really depends on you and your one-year-old -- people have different tastes/needs. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the station -- google is your friend.

"Request a courtyard room to avoid noise from trams, noisy to some but usual city centre noise"
"We had a room on a high floor with a view over the roof tops - very pretty when it was snowing and very quiet!"
"It is better to ask for a room in block A which is quieter"
"Book direct and you most likely will get a complimentary upgrade"
"The hotel borders busy streets with early morning traffic so book a higher floor to get off the street."
