Perfect location. Friendly and helpful staff. Fabulous breakfast (included in our rate, booked on Hotels.com). Small but comfortable room with great bed. The only downsides were the shower and room temperature. Weird shower head that splashed everywhere and just poured down in a torrent. The second morning the water wasn't hot. And the room was stifling hot at night--no matter...

This place is one of the odder hotels I've reviewed. The good things are the location (v central); the building (period features), the staff (very nice) and the relatively decent prices (by crazy Oslo standards). That said, the rooms are some of the smallest I've seen away from Tokyo (I presume 10 sq meters) and the lighting is so bad...

Grims Grenka has been recommended to me, and my expectations were quite high. The location is good and the staff friendly, and the breakfast quite nice. The rest of the stay was a big disappointment. The room was small and dark with cracks in the walls, the carpet was stained, and the room had not been cleaned properly. The room...

The hotel was located in the middle of town and close to the train station. The reception area and front was impressive, and staff helpful. We stayed in a double room, and it was very nice. Bed was very comfortable, and we have nothing to complain about. Breakfast had a good variety.
