Very good location, right beside Karl Johan street. Not impressive reception. Polite staff. Small room. The worst is the bed, too soft. Feel like you are drowning in the bed. My back hurts the next morning. Excellent breakfast buffet.

yes the room and bathroom are small, it felt more like a cabin on a cross channel ferry, but it was clean, cosy and comfortable and I certainly wasn`t in Oslo to sit in my room. Free wifi, the password is given to you on your room key when you check in. The location is superb, a 2 minute walk from the central bus and train station, just off the main shopping street. Oslo is compact so everything is walking distance. it felt safe in the area despite the occasional spaced out junkie around the centre - but you see that in every city in the world
Breakfast was excellent, a wonderful spread - cereals, breads, salads and cold cuts, frankfurter style sausages, scrambled or boiled eggs, delicious mini rosti potatoes, fruit - better than some 4 and 5 star hotels I`ve been to!

The only reason you would book this hotel is price.There are equally well placed hotels in the area.So don't moan about the facilities.The hotel is clean, staff friendly, breakfast superb and by Norwegian standards more than covers the cost of the room.You might not be able to swing a cat in the bathroom but I didn't take one but for the purposes of a bathroom it was more than sufficient. To conclude an excellent stopover in an otherwise overpriced city,well done thon

We have stayed at this hotel one night. The room was as small as a mans cabin on a cheap cruise boat. It was probably meant for one person for some years ago and they just put a bed for two people for selling the for room two. The furniture and bathroom are calculated for one person and you need to accommodate. The TV was working with several channels and WIFI is free of charge. Our room face inwards and it was quite noisy as it was work in the courtyard. Breakfast was standard with enough food to choose. Coffee in the entrance is free of charge. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The location is great for visiting the center of Oslo and the opera. We were not too disappointed by the hotel but the price they charge is too high for the standard they offer. We did not have a car but it does not seam easy to park in this area.
The Thai restaurant near by is worth a visit if you need to eat and do not want to go too far. It was recommended by the receptionist and we were pleased for the ratio quality and price, name of the restaurant " Risbolle Thai Restaurant"

I wanted a decent hotel and not spend too much on it. Maybe that is where it went wrong already. Not that I paid a ridiculous low price but I just got a hotel that did not meet my minimum expectations. The location is nice but with that it's all said. My room made me feel like backpackers-time. It's a youth hostel plus and did not enjoy spending time in my little room (with barely enough room to turn around).

This hotel has a great location within walking distance of the Bus Station (where the coach from the Ryanair flights terminates). All the main sights of Oslo can be explored on foot from the hotel. There is a great selection of restaurants close by. In a city which is considered very expensive this hotel was so well priced. The breakfast was excellent with a great variety of food. Although rooms were small, they were perfectly adequate for a city stay. Staff were very helpful. Have already recommended this hotel to my friends.
