The location is central Oslo which is great for getting around. Its has great modern decor. Only a 2 minute walk to central station. The breakfast included in the room fee was magnificent. Given the prices of Oslo, I recommend eating a large breakfast, return to the Hotel at 3pm for free afternoon tea, then back at 6:30pm for dinner...

Great location,we walked from central station with our luggage. The lobby is elegant and modern and the rooms are small however average for Europe and they're also very elegant and modern. The morning breakfast spread is amazing and highly recommended. Because of the cost of food in Norway they also provide a small dinner spread. After going out for drinks...

A really good hotel. Every thing has been thought to be perfect and you could see this fact in all details. The quality of the breakfast was the best I have ever had in hotel. This will be a kind of motivation to go back to Oslo. :) I was in Oslo only for a 2 nights stand and discover...

Location can't be beat; a 5-min walk from Oslo Central station and walking distance to most major tourist sites. Professional, friendly staff. Small room but nice bathroom with tub and separate toilet room. Fantastic breakfast and pretty good evening light buffet. The only downside is that, being in the center of town, you'll hear music from nearby clubs until early...

We liked the location of this hotel, the staff were helpful and the food was great. Considering how expensive Oslo is, having such an extensive buffet for breakfast and the included evening meal is a godsend! You also get free tea and coffee in the reception hall all day. The room was very dark (décor was purple and black), poorly...

This hotel has only 2 advantages, which is not very impressive. It has ok location in Oslo, and a low price. That was the advantages. On the lower end side, the hotel has dark small rooms, almost no service abilities, and even worse: the hotel is cheap, but if you take into consideration what you get for the price, very...

Great hotel, missed some of the facilities provided by 5 star hotels (e.g. safe). Very good size of rooms, bit on the dark side. Very limited (basically no) cupboard space. Excellent and divers breakfast. "No hassle" hotel. Free afternoon tea was on the "poor side" (basically coffee/tea and croissant), would not be missed if not offered. Free coffee in the...

Our stay was unfortunately not consistent with many of the reviews posted here. After being delayed on our flight, we arrived late in Oslo to check into our room here. The front desk staff was lovely and congenial. However, we soon realized that our room (on the 7th floor) had no air conditioning - it must have been over 40...
