For Oslo Airport convenience, this is the only really viable solution [despite many of the hotels that will claim to be "close" that are not]. But what a great solution! This is not the ratty, grungy airport hotel one sees in a wide array of places [e.g., New York City is notorious for this], but instead is a well run, pleasant, and convenient facility.
The hotel itself is located right outside the exit of the airport from arrivals. As you face outward from the airport, it is off to the right. Just follow the sidewalk. Further, feel free to use luggage carts to bring your luggage there because everyone does, and there is a luggage cart area right outside the front entrance. Note also this means that you will be able to access a luggage cart to go back to the airport. I believe it was roughly 45 steps from the airport exit door to the front reception area.
The facility itself as you walk into reception is warm, clean, and modern. We were greeted at check in by a very competent woman who checked us in and gave us a room right way even though it was not yet formal check in time [we arrived about 1 pm]. We also requested a room that viewed the airport and runway, and she indicated 'no problem'. We were given a room on the 6th floor with just that view --- which is, by the way, beautiful if you like to see airplanes take off and land.
The facility itself is modern and clean. It is laid out with use of open space [which is sometimes a problem in the narrow confines of European facilities]. Wireless Internet is included with the rate and worked well throughout the hotel -- from our room to the small outside garden area.
Breakfasts were hugely ample with hot and cold selections, breads, cereals, and lots of carbs if that's what you like. All rooms include breakfast with the tab. Note about food: restaurant in the hotel is expensive like all restaurants in Oslo. Best thing we found was, believe it or not, to go back to the airport and get food there.
We were here only one night for the purpose of catching an early flight out of Oslo, and that's really the purpose of this hotel [other than its conference facilities, which seem nice but I just observed the facilities but didn't experience them directly]. This is a wonderful facility on its own, but also highly convenient for the airport. I would stay here again.
