To be honest, the Clarion is not ideally located. It's within walking distance to most central Oslo attractions but the immediate area is quite run down - almost down and out - though major shopping areas are very close by. The hotel itself could do with a bit of an upgrade, though to be fair the rooms are clean, spacious by european standards and quite well appointed. But (recent activities aside) Oslo is a very safe place and you can catch a range of public transport from quite close by. The staff are friendly, helpful and a bit quirky, and the breakfast, afternoon snacks and buffet dinner make staying in what is a very expensive city seem reasonable. An added bonus for those of us who are on the road for extended periods is the onsite laundry - allowing you to catch up on a bit of washing. Compared to some scandinavian modern properties not too far away the Clarion Bastion offered a pleasant home on Oslo.
