Stayed for one night and the hotel was a good price in an expensive city in a location not a 10 minute walk to the train station to start my Norway in a Nutshell trip. The rooms are nice and while some reviews mentioned the "working ladies" up the street, I never felt uncomfortable or unsafe as a single woman. They offer a quality breakfast buffet and simple evening buffet meal available. I would recommend this hotel for a good value hotel to explore Oslo.

Excellent location of rooms, but with small bathroom. Attractions are nearby. Oslo S was also in walking distance. Staff very friendly and helpful. Only grouse was that ac does not work, but it was cool with the windows open.

Very nice hotel. Very good and charming rooms. Located close to the opera and Akershus fortress. Very good service at front desk and good cleaning. Bad service at berakfast. Be early or you won't get bacon and scrambled eggs.

Hi Jørn,

Tusen takk for din anmeldelse av oss her på Tripadvisor.
Setter pris på at du skryter litt av hjelpsom personal og at rommene er rene og pene. Det setter vi veldig stor pris på!
Kan bare beklage for at det ikke var mer bacon til frokost når du skulle spise. Dette skal ikke skje!
Kan ikke gjøre annet enn beklage.
Likevel er det veldi hyggelig at du ellers likte hotellet godt.

Du er hjertelig velkommen tilbake- da lover vi det er bacon og eggerøre til deg også!

Vennlig hilsen,
Tonje

I always live here when Iḿ working in akershus, and thats because of the good feeling , the personal , the evening supper, the rooms, .
of cause there could have been better possibilities for parking and the breakfast room is to narrow, but I am feeling home here , my second home .

Room Tip: talk to arild

This is a nice basic hotel at a reasonable price and good located and it can be the right choice depending on expectations. Oslo is very expensive city and this hotel is reasonably priced. The location is convenient and short walking distance from the main attractions, between the opera house and the fortress; the center of Oslo is not very big and therefore most places are easily accessible; if you want to be in the most perfect location, though, there are better hotels . The hotel is clean, the service is good and the staff is very helpful. the included breakfast is slightly above average and typical for most hotels, with added touch that you can make your own pancakes, waffles and omelets. The rooms are average size for European city hotel and have basic amenities, and nice décor, without excess luxury. At one moment I could hear the people above, but I am not sure if it was an issue if them being too loud, since most of the time it was fairly quiet. While the bathroom is not very spacious, the space is used efficiently and comfortably enough; the bathroom amenities are basic. There is a sauna in the hotel, but I did not try it, so I cannot comment.
In summary it is a good hotel, convenient and comfortable and if one just wants a reasonable hotel to sleep in while exploring the city, without needing luxury, then this hotel works great. My rating doesn't reflect any major criticisms, but rather the fact that it is not exceptional.
