“Clean & convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

If you want to stay in downtown Oslo without spending too much, this is the place. Although the rooms are quite small -- think college dorm room or cruise ship size -- it is very clean, and there was no noticeable hallway sound once my door was shut. A hot breakfast buffet is included, but the coffee left much to be desired.

This hotel is a small lowbudget hotel, with a high standard. The roms are very small (I have also tried a 1 person room). We had a room for two. As told - small room. One bed, a good bathroom, but small. This hotel has a great service, its new and it feels like spending time in a more expencive hotel.
The breakfast is very good, and the hotel is in the middle of the city....right by the royal castle.

It's a place near to everything - you can go to many restaurants, bars, pubs and other tourist places. Very easy to find even if you're first time in Oslo. Rooms are very small, but let's be frank - you use them to sleep overnight not to sit in them all day long ;) (very comfortable beds btw )

smart hotel for smart people.
god service, renslighet men det er veldig små rom og bade.
hotel located not far from business and tourist attraction.
Very easy to find hotels.
Staffs are very nice and charm.

Smallest hotel room I've ever been in. But it's a very efficient use of space, plus clean and modern. Surprisingly comfortable bed; I slept like a baby! I stayed here on short notice for work for a couple days, and the location is excellent. My only complaint was that there was no space to unpack or settle in--so it's fine for a couple nights, but no longer.

We had a double room, used it just to sleep there had to walk 10 minutes to Karl Johans Gate. In the area were also bars and cafes. Beds were okay, slept well. Was nice :)
If one is looking for a cheap and clean place to stay, smarthotel is the choice.

Needed a cheap room at short notice for a work trip, so found this new hotel in Oslo. Its reasonably central, although you need a taxi from the station with bags. Its new, clean, friendly and has the TINIEST rooms you have ever seen! Good for one night, maybe two, more and you'd go a little crazy!

Good breakfast for the price. Wifi is free and good.
