Budget hotel located just around the corner from Karl Johan. Affordable hotel and modern. The room was fine and very minimalistic. Friendly and helpful staff. Might consider staying here again. Thumbs up.

An hotel where you can check in and checkout without talking to any people. Good value for price. But no television in the room. No minibar, of course. What I didn’t like is that there was even no hair dryer. You must go in an...More

You get what you need, that's it. We were quite lucky to get a very early check in (at 8AM) from the check-in machine at the lobby since we were wondering whether we can keep our luggage there while waiting for the standard check-in time...More

This hotel is very reasonably priced for Norway. The hotel is very close to the train station (about 5 minutes walk). Although it is meant to be ‘faceless’ there are staff around to help if needed. The room whilst small was very well equipped, very...More

About
Description
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, More 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. Less
