We booked this hotel , as it had secured parking.
The room is good, tidy and clean. The breakfast was really good and hearty!
There is a wonderful Chinese cuisine restaurant ( Hon San) next to the hotel. Great comfort food.

The location is centralised. Shopping nearby, all within walking distance.

We took a tram to Sculpture park in the Frogner Park ( need to get the tickets in tobacco store or 7-11 store).

We enjoyed our stay thoroughly in the hotel , and Oslo is such a beautiful city.

...and everything was great. Extremely professional staff, great location, amazing breakfast. We were allowed to leave the room later on our way back. Would certainly recommend it to everyone visiting Oslo to stay in this hotel.

I was pleasantly suprised with my stay at this hotel in May 2019. The location was perfect...close to wharf, the train station, and Karl Johan gate. Easy walk to most of the city's tourist attractions. Lots of bars, restaurants, and coffee shops nearby. The breakfast at the hotel was very good and the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had updated decor. The bed was fantastic. Highly recommend this hotel while staying in Oslo.

This hotel was great! It was located very close to the National Theater train station (which had both the airport Flytoget express stop as well as the metro, tram and bus stops). The hotel was very clean and while the room was small it still had great amenities and bathroom. Loved having a Bose speaker to connect to in the room! The breakfast buffet was also excellent, with lots of options available and fresh squeezed orange juice! Overall would definitely recommend for its location and the cleanliness and amenities available.
