I stayed here solo for 3 nights. I had a single private room and couldn't believe the quality for what I paid. Rooms are clean and smell fresh with extremely comfortable beds and it's quiet at night. Rooms are basic and small but it was cosy and I felt safe and relaxed here! Bathroom looked brand new and shower was... More

A group of friends and I went to Oslo to run the half marathon. Citybox was perfect for us. It's within a 5 minute walk of the central train station (from which there are very regular trains to and from the airport). The rooms are well equipped and very clean. We had private twin rooms and all rooms had comfortable... More

Worth to stay and great location in the Oslo city near to the train station as well. Staff friendly but one thing have to improve is a kettle close to the washing. More touching is prepare two pc and one printer very convenient for tourist print out the boarding pass. Will come back stay again .

Great location and for what it's worth. Didnt really realise that there wasnt a tv or fridge included in the room, our mistake but no biggie. However it is literally a "citybox", the room was probably about 12 to 14 metres squared including the bathroom, so it was pretty tight with two suitcases. Saying that however, the bed was super...

The hotel is situated a five minute walk from the bus station, is modern and clean (just like the rest of Oslo!!). Stayed for a couple of nights with my friend for a city break, the hotel is very reasonably priced, especially given the prices in Oslo. It is basic but functional, clean and perfectly spacious for a couple of... More

It's nice enough and located in the middle of everything. The central rail station, the tram stop and the bus stops are 3-4 minutes away. The rooms are a tad small. There's no breakfast included but there are like 1001 places around for that. And the people are helpful enough if you're not unreasonable.

Hi Saurabh K! Thank you for your kind review of our hotel! Fun to read that you felt we were "in the midlle of everything"!

This was a perfect location while visiting Oslo. It was a walk from the main train station and within walking distance of many spots we checked out. It is self check-in/out, but there are staff available for questions. The rooms were very clean and the beds very comfortable. It was very basic, so there was no shampoo, conditioner, soap in...

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights with a friend. It's about 300m from Oslo main station but the streets are quiet and there's almost no traffic. The rooms are basic but you can get extra pillows and towels by asking in the office next to the check in stations. Yes, the hotel is basically unmanned but we really... More

We had a room in the second "tower", but hadn't understood that clearly from the check in process... so went up the first elevator for nothing.. a bit of searching, and then found a great room. large bathroom, but why is the toilet so close to the shower that...

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
