“Could do so much better”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Since it is Norway, there is no A/C in the room, I tried to adjust the temperature control (settings via TV) and it never worked, so the room had a temperature of 26 C (79 F) which didn't allow me to sleep (too hot), so I tried opening the window, but the noise from the street was something that bothered me as well.
On top, for breakfast there were available only a few things like scrambled eggs (from the box, not real eggs) some stewed potatoes, bread and few vegetables.
They could do way better to improve the service quality.

Room Tip: Ask for the inner rooms

Choose this hotel only if you need a stay near the city centre. Small noisy rooms. Felt like a truck container with the steel doors they have. Also had electricity trouble and had to wait together with the guest of the next room, for 20 minutes for someone to come up and raise the switch on the electrical panel. Consider the Thon Hotel nearby.

This hotel is no-frills but very tasteful and comfortable. The breakfast is good, not too much. The location is sentral, only blocks from several sights and government offices. I attended meeting both up at Holmenkollen and in the city center. It is very easy to find my way to the public transportation. The one thing I would recommend is a better explanation of the heating system. The room was quite, facing an inside area.

Well since last time we visited, they have wifi in all rooms, and we were booked into a double bed room. Bathroom is tiny and dated but at least the bed we had was very comfortable. Uber friendly staff on reception and the cleaning staff were lovely!
Con
Breakfast. You get the feeling they dont want you there. The selection is ok but not laid out properly, meaning you have to criss cross to get your plate full. Someone please explain why the bacon always looks as if someone forgot to take it out of the oven. Not a fan of the breakfast but everything else on the up and up

Room Tip: Best avoid rooms with street view. VERY noisy

In terms of location, it is central and convenient coming from/going to the airport by airport shuttle - value for money. But in terms of room size and front desk service, by golly it's over priced. Then again this is Scandanavia. Having visited almost all countries in Scandanavia, it is no longer surprising to find small rooms. Though it still is perplexing since Scandanavians are tall :-) But, I digress. I love Oslo. I love Norway.

First the upsides -- location, location, location. Also the breakfast was very nice, and the wifi worked well in the room.

The rooms are clean, but maybe a bit worn down (at least the room I got).

Hotels -- as everything else in Oslo -- are super pricey, but BW Bondeheimen is in the lower end of the price range. For the price, the place is excellent!

We stayed several days in this hotel, very central and nearby the public transport, and to several touristic spots. The size and cleanliness of the room was good. The breakfast was quite big and diverse, but the tables needed to be cleared more often. Overall very good and convenient hotel.
