Have stayed here twice now and both times found staff extremely helpful and polite.
The rooms are OK but a little below par when considering their claim as a boutique hotel however they are kept clean and comfortable. Only complaint - the rather limited dimensions of the duvet on a cold night.
I particularly like the "honour system" which operates for the room mini bar.
As other reviewers note - the hotel is in a quiet location however nowhere is far in Oslo on the tram.
Have now decided that this will be my hotel of choice in Oslo for business trips.
Fill up on the typical Scandinavian breakfast since the sole purpose of Oslo eateries is to extract as much cash from your pocket as possible - the place in general is eye wateringly expensive!
