We have stayed here 4 days during NewYear holidays and it i believe it was the best time-value-location choice for us. Here are a few tips about the place we liked: 1) Location - only 7-10 minutes by foot from the Cental railroad station (do NOT try to take a taxi - it will cost you 170 NOK or 20+Euro for a 5minute ride); 5 minutes from Gronerland ,which is a very cool and creative area of the city; 20 minutes by foot from key sightseeing areas such as Opera House and BarCode district, Akershus fortress and Aker Brygge district. 2) Quite area almost without any traffic 3) A few nice bars nearby 4) Fast check-in and check-out (mostly self-check-in|outs via special terminal at reception) 5) Girls at receptions were always very helpful and polite. 6) Free unlimited tee and coffee at the reception (which is a huge benefit in such expensive city as Oslo) 6) you are able to order simple breakfast at the bottom level, but it is more convinient to find some other place in the city. 7) You can purchase some light alcohol at the reception, but you are not permitted to take it away - it is strictly forbidden by local laws. 8) rooms are very simple yet not so dull as you can usually find in hotels of this level. 9) bathroom was clean and showergel+shampoo+hairblower were provided. 10) And wi-fi was really fast and sound.
Here are some negative parts of staying in the hotel: 1) Room service is provided only once per 4 days and our stay was exactly 4 days - so all trashbins in the room were bursting of garbage and towels were far from being fresh by the last day of our stay there. 2) During the day you can by only some light snacks like chips and ramen noodles - it would be much healthier to eat some sandwich or yoghurt.
Thus, i would say that if you look for a place to stay for a few nights for a resonable price in Oslo - Hotel Xpress is a fairly good choice.
