For us this hotel was a little difficult to find. (We actually had to ask some locals for help!) But, once we located it everything was very nice. Coming in late in the day from the train from Bergen it was pleasant having a free dinner at the hotel. The room was quiet and well appointed. I loved having switches for lights to the entire room right at my bedside. And there was a USB port right at the nightstand. Front desk help was friendly, accommodating, professional, and helpful. The breakfast was also very tasty.

The hotel was easy to find in a quieter side street getting off at the nationa theatre rail stop from the airport. Being on a side street with an atrium the rooms do not have any sort of view which this would impact my staying here longer than a couple of nights. The location was central and great for sightseeing.

Check-in was quick and friendly. The room was clean, cosy and the decor fresh. The bed was comfortable. Wak-in shower and modern bathroom. Having a kettle to make hot drinks was a bonus.

I give 5* due to the light evening buffet and the excellent breakfast buffet. Although there was no vegetarian main at the evening meal, I did ask and was told this was ony on a monday. The soup and salad on offer was very good and for a short stay I did not miss the lack of a main course.

The bread was delicious both times, the butter was some of the best I have ever eaten, the jams were home made quality, cheeses were local. There had clearly been a lot of thought into planning wholesome and tasty products for guests to sample Norway's farm produce. There was a chef at breakfast to prepare eggs. I really liked the beetroot and blue cheese dish, it was tasty and very different from usual breakfast items.

I would stay again on a future trip to Oslo.

Room tip: Most rooms face an internal atrium overlooking the restaurant area

We were warmly greeted upon checkin and the experience set a positive tone.
Our room was very nice with a comfy bed and quite roomy accommodation. Our room faced the inner atrium and was quiet for overnight.
The breakfast was extensive in selections and the room comfortable with great attention from the staff as needed.
The location is fantastic and provided easy access to all of the spots we wanted to walk to.
The hotel is almost hidden on a side street near the parliament building but easy to find.
A hidden treat is the lounge with balcony on a top floor to take in the city skyline.

The location is good but the hotel is just ok. Check in staff was rude about us dropping bags and having a coffee when we arrived early (due to flights), not a good welcome. Rooms and breakfast were fine though I would try elsewhere on a return visit. It’s also unfortunate there’s not much of a lobby.

Nice clean rooms, very small though. Bed is comfy and the Aircon is really efficient which is needed as room faces Atrium with a non-opening window. TV controller didn’t work, friendly staff came up and pulled a black box from behind the tv, said it happens all the time... Couldn’t open the door, another friendly member of staff comes and gives it a a hard tackle then says it happens all the time

When it comes to the TV boxes, unfortuatly our new system have had som challenges.
We are currently replacin all boxes as we speak, so the issue is known - but beeing worked with as we speak.

In regards of the door, this is not a known issue. But sayin that, electronical doors, which is very safe - can at times have minor problems. We will - regardless of this, look into the issuie and resolve it.
Sorry for any inconvinieses caused.
