I stayed 5 days in this hotel: 2 on my way in and 3 on my way back. After an 11 hours' flight from Bangkok, I first arrived at the hotel at 9:00AM. I was told I couldn't check in until 3:00PM! In most countries, check in time is 12 noon. The girl (with glasses) at the reception was not very helpful. I was able to leave my luggage in the store room. I came back to the hotel at 1:30PM. The same receptionist saw me but said nothing. At 2:00PM, I asked an information at the desk with the other receptionist. She told me I could check in already! I had quite a nice single room on the back at the 3rd floor. The room is large, with an armchair, a hot water kettle for tea or coffee, a mini bar, WiFi, a multi channel TV. The bathroom is tiny but all right. Breakfast is served from 7:00AM to 10:00AM on weekdays, and from 8:00AM to 11:00AM on weekends. So, how do you do if you have to catch a train or an airplane earlier. This hotel is conveniently located at a mere 10mns' walk from the Railway Station (Oslo S). It is called Terminus. So I think they should cater for travelers and offer breakfast at an earlier time in the morning. This being said, I was able to leave my luggage in the storage to go on my tour of Norway. On my way back, I had the same, nice room I had when I came in. It was late in the evening and again the same receptionist was not very friendly. She wanted my hotel voucher straight away! I had asked her to go to the room first, saying that I would come back with my voucher. On the 2nd day, I learnt that snacks were provided in the evening at the nice, glass dining-room on the 2nd floor. Nobody had told me this upon checking in! Anyway, this hotel is really nicely situated, near the main railway station and only at a 20mns' walk to City Hall, downtown Oslo.
