“Not impressed even for the price”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Great location from the train station. As we entered the room I looked up to see a pair of men's underwear wrapped around the smoke detector on the ceiling, no towels in the bathroom, no a/c or fan and the windows only opened about 2 inches. the carpets were stained and spotted. When we took a shower the water exited the shower area and filled the floor all the way to the toilet. Our television had no remote control the list of incidental mistakes started to add up. The staff was good enough to provide us with a fan and another remote control. Breakfast was the best part of this hotel. If all you want is a budget room this is the hotel.

Came to the hotel on a sunday. First room was very small, tv not working, toilett so close to the wall you had to sit sideways on it. New room was a little bigger, but there was a hole in the wall into the electric cables, an two of the wires sticking out. There was no aircondition in the rooms. Not to happy, time for bed and then the bars and discos starts up. The noise from the bars and disco is wery loud. Had to close the window but still a lot of noise. Music ended around 3 in the morning.

A perfect location for exploring Oslo (one block from the Cathedral and two from the main train station and tram lines), this hotel exceeded our expectations. My whole family was able to stay in one room (two twin beds and a bunkbed), which was a major plus. There was a little traffic noise during the day, but it calmed down at night. The nice decor, clean bathroom, and great breakfast made up for any slight inconvenience. A great hotel for a family on a budget.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper you could request a room at the back, but as a light sleeper myself I did...

Very central downtown. Good value. Do not stay in a room at the front, they are small, very (traffic) noisy and the beds are small. It was no problem to change to a better room at the back.
Parking only in expensive public garage. Breakfast is great!

Room Tip: do not stay in a room facing the street

We stayed at this hotel on our first night in Norway. It was such an easy walk from rail station. We had a very small - even odd shaped - room and then on our last night we were on 4th floor....much
Better. However this super cheap, very well located hotel was soooo clean, bed very comfortable,
Very peaceful and to top it all off..., breakfast was brilliant!

Room Tip: If possible, not on top floor!

The hotel was nice, very friendly and helpful staff.
The room itself was of an average size, clean and nice beds.
But the bathroom was much too small, the water from the shower was running out, under the toilet and almost into the room. The bathroom was not as well cleaned as the room.
The breakfast was OK, it was enough but the scrambled eggs were oversalted and there were no buns.

Room Tip: There is no restaurant in the hotel, only a breakfast room. But in the same building there is a Turk...

Everybody warned us that Norway is expensive and they were right. This hotel is an excellent value. It is very clean and the breakfast was really good. Our room widow opened above the Indian restaurant next door so it is a good thing that we like curry because you can smell the cooking as well as hear it until 10 ish. We ate mostly fast food and kebabs because it was at the end of our trip and the sticker shock of eating out was getting to be a bit much.
