This kind of hotel it's a bit different than other I've visited before but, it's not an inconvenient. It's located near the city center and a few meter away from public transports and the Opera. It's clean, has a fast WIFI connection but, our double bedroom was too small, instead it was clean.
In the ground floor there are a computer with an ink-jet printer (did you forget to print your boarding pass???) and some vending machines. So, a great value for your travel budget (spend your money out there!).

Hi Jimber81!

Thank you for your review of our hotel!

So glad to hear that you found us to be a value for money hotel! :)
If you book one of our rooms that are categorized as "small", the room is indeed "small". But in return this room is even cheaper. And there's only a small extra charge for an upgrade to a larger room.

Hope to welcome you back!

Best wishes,
Citybox Oslo

Oslo is very expensive city. We tried to find a place which is convenient and not so expensive, so choose citybox.
It is just about 7~8 minutes walk away from the center railway station and we can go on foot to most famous sights in Oslo from here.
It was an interesting experience to live here. We've first seen the self check in and out machine. But you need a credit card with chip. But is also doesn't matter if you have any problem with check in and out. The staff is always ready to help you.
We lived in a triple room in the top. The room and bathroom are very clean. But consider that it is in Oslo, it is reasonable to have such a small room with this price.

The location is great, easy to find from the central station. You have to chek in with the machine in the lobby. Since I wanted to pay in cash, the receptionist opend the door and I was able to pay.
Very friendly and helpful staff. The room was like in description: small - but very nice. Modern style. Clean. It didn't have TV, but I didn't need one, so no problem:). The wi-fi worked very well.
All in all; i would stay there again.
The only "problem" is the night life a few streets from the hotel. You can easily encounter one of the "ladies of the night". But they were very friendly, even when I said no thanks:).

Hi Aleks78!

Thank you for your fantastic review of our hotel!

The location is indeed great, and as we are located in the city center, there can sometimes be less fortunate events ocurring nightime as there are in all city centers.
But glad to see that you appreciate our "value for money" concept!

Hope to welcome you back!

Best wishes,
Citybox Oslo

Very easy to get to from Oslo Central.Staff were always helpful & cheerful, and the rooms were clean & well maintain. Really appreciated being able to check in early on our return stay, know it was luck there was a free room but the staff were awesome.

Great location, 5 minutes walk from the train station. Easy to walk all around the city from this hotel and even take buses to go around if you prefer.

Very clean. Room was big enough for 2, with 2 single beds. Big bathroom, with a large shower. Big window and very quiet.

Very basic but all you need is there. Good Wifi and coffee machine and microwave downstairs very useful. Restaurants all around and supermarket 2 minutes walk.
