“Undergoing Improvement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

I recently paid 2 visits to this hotel in one week on business. On both occasions the check-in was seamless and staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is a must - excellent selection of food and very fresh. Accommodation on my first visit was a bit left to be desired, although clean; my second visit of the week saw a totally different side to the hotel - excellent room, very spacious and welcoming. I understand the hotel is undergoing reburbishment and once complete I feel would alter a rating to very good. Central for business and pleasure alike, with the Palace just across the road where you can wander through his garden!

Room Tip: Request a ready refurbished room if staying more than one night.

Beautiful building from the 30's located by the Royal Park - fantastic location. Modest receptionarea, but very helpful and pleasant staff. I had a newly and beautifully renovated Superior room - one of the best in Oslo. Very good bed, beautiful breakfast. As a frequent businesstraveller this will be the hotel I'll return to next time in Oslo.

This was a very pleasant place to stay with a good breakfast and friendly staff. The rooms were a good size - though ours was a bit of a hike through several now-joined buildings. Gym a bit basic with two pieces of equipment not working. Internet worked OK. Would stay again for it's proximity to some pretty areas and cafes/shops.

We have just stayed here for one night. After reading some of the reviews we were sceptical to this hotel, but no need for that. When we arrived we were welcomed by 2 nice receptionists. We were upgraded to a business-room, and the room was great. There were even a smal kitchen. The bed was super!! And the pillow even better!!! Breakfast was nice. Even if we were late, it still looked good. The location of the hotel is perfect. We will definitely stay here again.

King Harold V is your nearest neighbour. Downtown Oslo is just a short walk through the Palace Park.
They have a few parkingspots in the backyard at a surcharge. They are VERY narrow, but still better then parking in the street.

My room was enormous: full kitchen with utensils, bathroom, bedroom and a very nice livingroom with a couch, chair, table, flatscreen TV and a cafetable set.
No minibar, but a fridge to hold your own shopping.
Room was a bit too warm to sleep in and a bit to chilly to relax in during the day. But I guess that's your average hotel room dilemma...

Breakfast resturant was fine. Food was good, and selection was good.

I stayed for five nights, and my room was tidied except from Sunday, which I'm fine with.
I have just booked it again for my next stay in Oslo.

*Recommended*

Room Tip: Ask for an appartment. May cost a bit more, though.

As I frequently travel to Oslo on business and to see friends, I am very happy to have found hotel Slottsparken. I have stayed here several times over the last 18 months and will soon go back for a short stay. I would never have returned if I was not happy with the rooms, service etc. The upgraded rooms are superb, and I love the kitchenette facility.
The last time I was there I stayed for 3 nights and it was really convenient with a kitchenette.
The reseption area isn't very nice, hopefully they will remodel this too in the end.
Looking at the travellers pics I find that noone has submitted pictures of the new remodelled rooms, which is a pity. The hotel's own photoes really do the remodelled rooms justice.

I recently stayed at the Thon and enjoyed the luxury of the business suite.The hotel does not look like much from the outside and not a well located reception desk or area, however our very plush business suite with kitchenette and separate lounge area washed all those concerns away. View was so so, but room was very nice, and clean. Bedroom area unusual layout but stay here was extremely comfortable, breakfast adequate, good value for money.
