“Excellent location and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

Good choice in a beautiful neighborhood away from the busy tourist/business center of town -- and with free parking. Easy options to either walk of take the tram to the central area with the ferries. We walked half the time, took the tram the other half. Another advantage of this location is the availability of local restaurants - not just the downtown tourist places. Lovely room. Friendly front desk service.

Saga is a very nice, relatively small hotel with a very good price / service relation. And its location in a quiet neighborhood and the nicely furnished rooms with comfy beds can even make you miss breakfast (which according to other reviewers would actually have been worth to get out of bed earlier)

A small and charming hotel in the west side of Oslo. A very quiet street. An old four story apartment building made into a hotel. This has resulted in some nice details, but also some small issues, mainly very tiny bathrooms. Otherwise, the rooms are very nice and modern. Breakfast is excellent. Not many choices, but really nicely done.

It is fully renovated old villa in a nice Oslo neighborhood - downtown and near the park hosting the castle.

Very nice, stylish and 'warm' rooms with good quality (air condition a tiny bit on the weak side; mattress overly soft). Very friendly and supportive staff. However, they might a bit new.

Good breakfast.

I highly recommend the hotel.

This was by far the best value for money hotel in Norway on our two-week holiday so far. The hotel is charming and very nicely decorated. Our room on the ground floor was very quiet, spacious, super-clean and comfy. All staff members were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was superb, best in Norway so far! Great selection of cold cuts, warm dishes, fresh fruit and veggies and fantastic pastries. It's served in the cellar, so no natural light, but it's really forgivable. They even had a selection of gluten-free buns (we mentioned in the reservation that we eat a gf diet). The hotel offers cards for renting the city bicycles, very recommended! The bike station is very close by. Maybe the only slight minus was that the bathroom is quite small and it gets wet when showering (the shower is separated from the rest of the bathroom only by glass doors, and the rubber on the bottom edge is aged and doesn't stop the water from flowing everywhere). Perhaps if those rubbers were occasionally replaced, it would be better. Also, our shower and sink were slightly clogged; we told the staff but somehow nothing was done about it (maybe due to weekend). In any case, given the overall great impression I give it a "5". In particular given that it was our cheapest hotel in Norway, even cheaper than the youth hostel in Voss (no joke!). I don't know how Saga pulls it off, but kudos to them.

Saga Hotel is a great find. Good location (just minutes to city centre and Akker Brygge), nice rooms that are well-furnished, great breakfast and excellent staff (helpful with recommendations in Oslo). Quite residential area and hotel is clean, efficient and has a nice sense of style. In a return to Oslo, I would definitely stay here.

The Saga hotel is wonderful. My girlfriend and I stayed for three nights in July. Although the room was a bit small and our window faced a gravel parking lot, everything was very clean and well run. The front desk was very helpful when offering sightseeing advice, the breakfast was above average, and the location is in a quiet and clean neighbourhood. The number 19 tram takes you direct to downtown in 10 minutes. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Room Tip: Don't get room 102. It is right next to a gravel parking lot.
