The gabelshus is a nice hotel in and old building in a very quiet residential area of Oslo, although its only a few minutes from the tram stop into town (literally 2-3 stops to centre and also walkable) the entrance and breakfast rooms are very nice, the check in staff were extremely helpful and told us places to go nearby for a drink and also where to explore in town (Head over to Grunerloka for night-life and nice bars) ur room was at the back and in the old servants quarters, and was quite a nice attic room. it was quite large and had a large bathroom with bath and natural light. the bathroom could be a bit more up to date but it was OK (note there were electric wall heaters and no radiators which might not be enough during the winter?) the room was very comfortable with a nice bed and wardrobe space, a comfy chair and two big windows looking out onto gardens and residential properties. It was very quiet and we had 3 very relaxing nights sleep there. The evening buffet was great, some people have commented that it was not enough for dinner but we found it a very good selection of hot and cold food (salads, cold meats and cheeses, fish, nice bread, cakes etc.) and it saves you a lot of money as eating out in Oslo is very pricey. Also its really nice that you can make tea, coffee, hot chocolate and waffles to have at any time or take back to your room (the cinnamon buns were excellent after a long days walking!) the breakfast room is large and in two sections, one part is more of a formal dining conservatory. Overall the hotel is very relaxing, comfortable and we would stay there again.

She ran the place in a caring and authoritative manner at daytime and used to relax with her guests smoking a pipe in the evening. ... more less
