To be honest this was one of the worst experiences I have ever had in a hotel.
I won´t comment on the price level since compared to almost every other country Norway is just really expensive.
This is a really beaten up "design" hotel with a semi bad location with several serious problems. The rooms are in poor condition, the service is beyond all standards (try getting a cup of coffee) and frankly the staff are nowhere to be found, the breakfast was a big joke with food running out before the breakfast was suppose to end, the rooms were so poorly cleaned that our room had some stuff that the previous client had left, the shower was broken ... and the list goes on.
Yes, we did complain while we stayed at the hotel and yes, they gave us a discount. I also wrote a letter of complaint to First Hotels. First Hotels chose never to answer my letter but instead as an insult to injury they just listed me without my permission to their loyalty program and started spamming.
Oslo is a beautiful and nice city. You should not spoil your trip to Norway with this hotel. Avoid.
