Comfort Hotel Xpress Central Station opened October 15th 2014. Budget hotel. Small rooms. Plenty of attitude, low rates & love! Xpress are budget hotels with attitude. We know that our guests are in Oslo to experience Oslo, not to spend time in their hotel rooms. Our rooms give you a great base to explore the city and our staff are ready to share their personal favorites. We don't have a restaurant. We do have lots of breakfast tips for you. We also sell breakfast items in our lobby shop. We don't clean your room while you're here. We believe you're more than able to put the remote control on your nightstand yourself, and we also know you can use your towel more than once. This saves loads on personnel cost, and you pay less for your room. Hey, it also saves on energy use and minimizes our cotton usage. Our Barception is staffed 24/7. We sell four types of bottled beer, three cocktails, one red, one white and one prosecco. We don't recommend trying them all at once. We also have the occasional Sunday Special. We love Sundays. Our rooms are small. They have really good beds, a flat screen TV, a small desk and a good sized bathroom. All the basics. They also have free WIFI (open - no confusing passwords needed), power outlets by the desk AND the nightstand, and they also have their own donate drawer. Just leave what you can spare in that drawer and we'll make sure it ends up with someone who really needs it. In October 2014 we're launching our city guide app: Urban Experiences by Xpress. Make sure to download it to make your Oslo visit even more interesting! PS: 13 of our rooms have their own private roof top.

You know what you get if you choose comfort hotel in Norway, but this was really bad. First of all there was some sort of drug party behind the hotel in the night time. Secondly the view from my window is a really ugly concrete wall. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Hey 21gunnarv, Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are so happy to see that you was taken care of by our staff. :) Not really sure what kind of backyard you are talking about, the one that can be seen from the rooms are rented parking locked at all time and no one can get in. I also asked the staff and they have not seen or heard anything from the backyard. So sorry for not be able to reply properly on this since we don't understand where or what street you have seen or heard this. Take Care.

Oslo, Norway2 contributions
Stay away from all the comfort hotel. They take advantage with marketing about location but It is insane inside .and bad customer service. I am from Panama and this is "Norway" where a hotel should means the basic and I am im shock these hotels are not broken. I have been in 2 hotels comfort this and youngstorget express and I will continue writing , please dont visit this. Extreme poor clean, they have hidden room where keeps dirty in a situation like me. Oslo municipality chose my first hotel Youngstorgetx Xpress and they changed me into here Xpress Central Station . Extreme bad ventilation, Dust and in my entire life I have been at a hotel without brrakfast service room like buffet. My question is How do these hotel keep alive ? if they are not hotel they are totally a hostal degree but look at the recrption they are selling wine. Perfect way to takr your money. I am not tourist i got a job as aircraft maintenance engineer in Norway , got my ID or personal number and I am in a moving situation waiting to rent my first apartment in Norway with my first but excelent permanent job in Norway with a high salary and I will never give any krono to a hotel in Oslo, at least this capital ( green city) are taking your monry because there ate not too much option here. If you are a long stay they dont clea the room each 4 days insteat 1 week.Toilet paper asking and the first hotel releasing 2 only now that they changed me I will ask 5. Broken hotel wth extreme bad customer service. Plese close this hotel and visit my poor vountry compared with you and you can see how does look a hotel service. Incredible and I hope thr owner reqd this, must be a rich without compromise to care about the clients or enviorment. Give my money back. Never ever will come back and never will recommend these places as hotel.

Hi Danay0584, Thank you so much for giving us your opinion about our hotels. I can see that you have giving feedback regarding several hotels. Comfort Hotel Xpress are, as stated on the booking site, less is more and environmental friendly hotels. For example we don`t have minibars because the refreshments never keep the correct temperature and are often overpriced. Instead we have a Comfort Deli in our Barception, here you can purchase cold drinks, snacks and light food to a good price. Xpress has standard stay-over cleaning every 4th day, but due to the pandemic we have practicing Safe Stay. This means, safe for you as our guest but also our staff, rooms are only cleaned for longstay once a week. But if there is anything our guests needs as extra towel, toiletpaper, soap and so on, all you need to do is ask and we will arrange this. We are happy to see that you also care about the environment, then we really hope that you see what we are doing in the hotel. We are trying to leave as little bad footprints on mother earth as possible. Luckely, one concept doesn't fit all, therefore we have several hotel concepts all from Xpress to Clarion (full service) or if luxury is more your flavor we have one just across the street, within the same family. :) I have talked to the staff that helped you with all your luggage to your car and information that you wanted us to look up for you. We are sorry that you didn't find this as a good service, maybe one of our higher branded hotels is a better fit for you. Know that you are always welcome to our hotels, we really hope you find your perfect fit in our Nordic Choice family. We wish you all the best with your new apartment and job. Take Care!

Great location just outside the main train station which was the best highlight for us. It was reasonably priced however the room was very small and dark. Small selection of food and drinks in the reception

First of all, when you book this hotel you book it because you're on a budget and want a clean safe place to stay in Oslo without breaking the bank. It's a hotel without the frills and that's fine. The location is right in downtown Oslo which makes it ideal for exploring the city. Rooms are clean and tidy. Lobby provides shop for essentials and some light food. The rooms are quite small, and the beds are really cheap and honestly not great for sleeping. As a Nordic Choice Platinum member I was not recognized in any way, and I was downright refused room upgrade due to some silly reason. Book Xpress if you're on a budget, but honestly I might prefer Xpress Youngstorget instead.

Hi Martin H, Thank you so much for taking the time and giving us your feedback. We are truly sorry that you didn't get recognized as Platinum Member, we will definitively take this back to the team so we can remind everyone about our routines. We never want our guests to feel like you mention, our staff should in a proper way inform about the membership terms and conditions when it comes to upgrade at Xpress hotels. Xpress are excluded from the upgrade benefit, although, our staff did upgrade you and we really hope that you enjoyed the room. Our sister hotel is also a great option to stay at in Oslo, know that you are always welcome to us and any hotel in our family. Take care,
