We stayed for 2 nights in December either side of a trip to Svalbard due to flight times, it's location is very central and was just a short (cold) walk to pubs, restaurants, shops, etc.
The decor in the hotel was reminiscent of the Overlook in Stanley Kubrick's" The Shining " The carpets and room decor have seen better days, there were cracked and or missing tiles in the bathroom, and no decent extraction fan so… there was a note up to say you have to shut the bathroom door when showering as the fire alarm may be activated otherwise.
The staff were very nice and the area was good, it's the first & last stop for the Radisson Airport Bus too so it's handy from that point of view, journey time circa 50-60 minutes.
The view from both rooms we had were fantastic (I think the 19th & 20th floors,) overlooking central Oslo & the Fiords.
I'd try somewhere more modern in future though, as this hotel was a wee bit tired looking!
