Reviewed October 30, 2012

Stayed here september 2012. Clean rooms, very good breakfast buffet, cheap (we stayed there for free, but the prices are good anyway), friendly staff, free umbrellas for rent, sound isolation could be better.

Its location is brilliant. Almost right at Karl Johans gate, but in a side street so you escape the noise.
People might feel uncomfortable over the fact that there's a strip joint next door and all the african hookers walking around, but they'll leave you alone if you tell them to buzz off.

Also, the hotel could have chosen something different than glass doors for the toilets.

An unassuming entrance to this hotel. Reception staff were very helpful.
The hotel itself is clean and comfortable, room well equipped with all you would expect.
Bathrooms also very good.
This hotel is ideally placed for the railway station, being approx 500 yards away. Also, just around the corner from Karl Johannes Gate and the shopping there.
I didn't take the breakfast, so can not comment on that here..
Overall very good for a budget hotel.

The room was small but clean and quiet. The breakfast was very big and had everything. Good value for the money!
Located very central almost at the station and you have the biggest shopping street just around the corner. The area can be a little bit ruff late at night

We were very pleased with our choice for a short stay in Oslo. Location excellent - close to transport connections, and close to city access. Breakfast was also outstanding. Room was comfortable. No problems with service.

If you're like me and don't care too much about big spacious hotel rooms and just want a comfy place to relax and sleep between your adventures, you're going to like this hotel a lot!

The best thing about this hotel is the location. Straight in from the Karl Johan Main Street this is probably one of the most central hotels that are easy on the wallet.

Those of you expecting luxury and big hotel rooms should probably look elsewhere. This hotel is marked as a Budget hotel and you should expect a simple and clean standard.

I have been staying at this hotel at multiple occations throughout the last 7-8 years or so and I have never been disappointed by this hotel. The rooms are small, but clean, neat and with comfortable beds(important!!) The buffet is simple and decent, offering fresh fruit, bread, some warm dishes and a great selection of cereal , musli, dried fruits and nuts.

Stayed at their small single room. Booked via booking.com for 545 NOK. Overall this is a good place to stay with modern amenities and strategic location. Just make sure you request for quiet facing side. My friend who stayed at the same property; did not ask for quiet room and his window was facing a night club/pub.

Pro:
- Modern, clean
- Stable wifi
- Great location, within 300 m from oslo central train station and half block from karls johan gate
- Linen provided
- Good water pressure in the shower
- One laptop with internet connection at the lobby

Cons:
- Wifi only free up to 1MB
- 300 NOK deposit (although they did return it immediately)
- Noisy if you got the side that faces a night club
- No aircon. Had to open window during my late summer stay

Two friends sharing a room with two separate beds during the Oslo Marathon weekend. The hotel has an excellent location although the neighbourhood has a feeling of "red light district". Couple of striptease bars and kinky clothing stores just around the corner. The hotel is very close to the city center, the price is low, room clean but small and the breakfast decent. The staff is friendly and helpful. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay at a central location at a low cost.
