No toiletries like shampoos, conditioner, moisturizer. Since I already read other process and went thought their website I packed everything. Otherwise I have nothing to complain. Rooms were neat and clean.

The hotel concept is basic, as they fully disclose during the booking phase. No safe, no hair dryer, no daily housekeeping, no pool, no gym and a self automated check in, with the use of a terminal. As such you are aware that the rooms do not have a television. As an alternative they promote fast, efficient WiFi enabled video...

This hotel is very close to Oslo Central Station and is a short walk to the Oslo Opera House and also the Akershus Fortress. The rooms are extremely clean, albeit quite small and basic. We didn't mind though, as we were really only in the room to sleep. Beds are comfortable. Check-in and check-out are all automated and done on...

Very modern, clean and comfortable room. The hotel was great, easy check-in/out. Very helpful staff and a delicious restaurant on your door step (with a great discount for guests). The hotel is in a perfect location, a stones throw away from the station, opera house and Karl Johans Gate!

We flew into Oslo early and were scheduled to take the train to Bergen the next day. We booked Citybox because it was reasonably priced and 3 blocks from the train station. We walked from the station to the Citybox. First of all, we checked-in without speaking to or seeing a human. The machine for check-in resembled your basic ATM....

Fantastic location in central Oslo, only about 5 to 10mins walk to the central station, bus stop and main street. Oslo is very expensive so it was a good find in a very handy location.

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
