We booked this hotel because it was the only one we could afford at the time and we wanted to get away for New Year (this was the second cheapest after a hostel, in searchers).
Room: Room is smaller than an average hotel room, but an acceptable size. It was clean, neat and was nicely decorated. It had one window looking into a courtyard area. There is no wardrobe or draws so everything has to stay in your suitcase, there are however hooks to hang clothes up on the wall. There is a good size flat screen TV and a pull down desk, plus two chairs. Your room will not be cleaned (i.e. bed not made or new towels), unless you pay extra. There were only two negatives, one was the bed sheet and the other hot water pipes. The under sheet on the bed only just fitted, so when you turned over it moved and you land up sleeping straight on the mattress (which was spotlessly clean thankfully, but had no protector). A larger sheet with elastic fitting would solve this problem, the bed was very comfortable. The other issue was the hot water pipes making knocking noises at night, this was a little annoying.
Bathroom: The bathroom was spotlessly clean and modern (it looked brand new). It had a sink, toilet and shower (no free toiletries). It had wonderful under floor heating.
Hotel: The lobby had free internet computers and a free coffee machine. There was food for sale and game machines to play. It was very modern looking and a lovely space. Check in was done on a computer, very easy as long as you can read English or Norwegian. However there was a staff member there to help, who we found very helpful and friendly. Even though we stayed over New Year, the hotel was quiet.
Location: The hotel is in a good location for the price, very close to shops, the cathedral and bus station to the airport (Rygge). The area around the hotel felt safe, but was not overly pretty.
Overall: A good no frills place to stay, if you have a small budget.
