i find most norwegian hotels are very similar.
ikea type rooms which seem basic but usually have everything you need.
i booked a superior room and asked for a quiet side.
5th floor room was ok - a couple of englisg tv channels, decent wifi which was free.
toiletries were body cream, shampoo and shower gel.
2 single beds, table and couch - basic but comfortable.
breakfast was decent with plenty of continental choice plus a chef for fried eggs , omeletes etc.
didnt eat in restuarant at night as i had time to walk around the town.
theres a few restaurants in the shopping center accross the road from the hotel - its bigger than you think at first so keep walking.
i also ate in a restaruant/ bar down at the river which was nice (once you get your head round norwegian prices)
theres not really much to see or do in the area and i imagine most visitors are here on business.
i think its the only hotel in the town so next time i may stay in oslo and get the train.
tip - get train from airport as taxi cost me £200!
