This was our last hotel stop before returning to the UK. A very smart upmarket hotel situated in a great location. Short walk to city. The foyer is welcoming and very modern. The hotel has a fantastic roof terrace where you can have drinks. The drinks are expensive everywhere

Me and a few friends were visiting and the staff was simply rude and not helpful at all. The rooms were decent looking, but if you looked closer you could see that the room hadn’t been cleaned in a while. Bad service and not clean. NOT RECOMMENDED!

We wanted a central place, close to all but quiet. Didn’t want to spend too much but didn’t want a tiny place - sorta wanted it all. But we got it. Location is really good but also just off main Johan Gate so it was quiet. Room was good size, staff were super helpful (seems

Is car parking available?
Dear Dirk49 There is unfortunately no parking at the hotel itself, but there is a parking house some 50 meters down the street. The name is Q Park and the address is Bankplassen 1. Kind regards, Marko Ognjanovic Receptionist

Is there an airport shuttle? If so, hours and cost.
Yes, do take the train. Taxis are "complicated" in Oslo. There are different types with widely differing fares. Also, on holidays the fares go up exhorbitantly! You could easily put u$s 200-300 into one-way taxi fare to or from the airport!
