“Good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Value for money especially with the evening meal provided. The room was clean and nice but extremely stuff in the summer. AC was not enough and even with the windows opened it was unbearable. Could have provided an extra fan.

Thank you for your nice review. The summer has been amazing in Oslo, and exremely hot over a long period. The hotel do not have an air condition since we rarely experience this kind of summer, so the building togheter with the whole city got really warmed up!

We wish you a lovely day, and welcome back the next time you visit Oslo :-)

Ten minute walk from Oslo Central Station, thought about using the tram but didn't have a spare arm or leg to lose...

Very close to basically everywhere in central Oslo.

Can't say anything but good things about all of the staff i encountered over the three days i was there.

Room small and basic (got a very good deal so not an issue). Bathroom small but everything fine apart from water taking a while to warm up. Nice shower and also found they have underfloor heating in the bathroom which i turned off being June.

Nice breakfast with the added addition of the light evening meal. As said elsewhere, Oslo is an expensive city so nice touches like this are appreciated.

There's a ghost on the 5th floor apparently but i was on 3rd so no idea if it was around...

I need to preface this review with the comment that the four-star rating is not because of the rooms. The rooms are very small and for American travelers the decor and amenities will remind you of a college dorm room; they are austere and the bathroom is tiny; bath towels and hand towels are provided but no wash cloths. The lamp in our room was broken and upon arrival the elevator was out of order. The elevator is tiny, able to hold only 4 people and if one has much luggage, it can hold even fewer people. However, the hotel is centrally located (right by the national gallery and 3 blocks from the town hall. The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful; I cannot say enough nice things about them! In the price of the room, breakfast and a "light" supper are included. The breakfast spread was awesome -- with everything from hot cereals, eggs, bacon, sausage, cold cuts, pastries, and an amazing selection of fresh fruits. The "light" supper was also amazing; it included a salad bar; soup; fresh breads, and several entrees. it too was delicious. Given the price of eating out in Oslo, this feature of the hotel was an amazing value! Thus despite the dorm-style rooms, I would highly recommend this hotel.

Thank you for you review, we appreciate it! :-)

The size of the rooms varies a lot, and some of them do have very small bathrooms.

Great to hear that you were happy about the staff and meals, and we really hope to see you again next time you visit Oslo. We promise to give you a room with a bigger bathroom :-)

Me being picky!! I am just reading other's reviews saying that for them was excellent, now I feel bad.
The hotel is in an old building, and this makes it cozy, the room was OK not so big, but nice and clean, with a comfortable bed, the bathroom is nice and clean, however the hot water takes some time to come out (I was on the top floor), so you have to expend some minutes running the water.
The elevator is very tight, I would say that 3 persons there would feel like in a Japanese train (bit exaggerated, but 4 will for sure)
I didn't know about the dinner, but in any case I was so exhausted that I didn't mind to go out of the room once I have gotten a long relaxing shower.
Breakfast, even thou it was nice, I would say that it has only the essentials, no vegetables were available, only 1 type of ham / salami, and I don't recall fruits. But you'll find cereals, few types of bread, fried/scrambled/boiled eggs and yogurts.
The receptionist was very kind and helpful.
In general it was an OK experience for me, and considering the prices in Norway I'd say it is good

Room Tip: I think that on the inner side are quieter

The stay in the clarion Savoy hotel was excellent. The location is amazing.
The rooms are clean and nice. There is free Dinner and in Norway that's very expensive. The people that work there are very nice.

The Clarion Group's offer of free breakfast and supper at the Savoy is unbelievably good value for expensive Oslo. The supper is substantial despite only having one or two hot main dishes (changed daily). Free tea/coffee and waffles also offered for tea. The double room I stayed in was clean, comfortably furnished and quiet. The location of the hotel is excellent and the staff (especially the kitchen staff) friendly. This hotel is great value for money and a money saving idea in a very attractive but expensive city.
