This hotel is so old fashioned with tired rooms.. Breakfast and reception are ok. The room is very dated and the heating sounds like a waterfall stopping you sleep. The single bed is very small. What hotel in 2017 only has twin or single beds for 140 euro a night? Worst thing the bathroom. Broken tiles, no plug and mould...

Bathroom with under floor heating -- I can count on one hand any hotels in norway who has it, but this hotel has! Towels with hanging loops - the same goes here.

This hotel was ok, but nothing more. The room was pretty small, although clean and my backside room was nicely quiet. The bathroom was terrible small. Medium hotel, although the price indicated higher quality.

Visited the hotel this weekend. This hotel are located spot on in the city centre. Walking distance from mostly everything, first of all two minutes from the main train station in Oslo. The hotel has it age, but still looks ok. Because of its age, the hallways are tiny and very long. The rooms are mostly small, unless you upgrade...

This is a strange hotel. The room was an ok size but you have to walk through an absolute maze of a hotel floor to reach it. We must've taken 6 different turns on our level to get from the lift to the room! Breakfast was nice and the hotel was right across from the main station. Good choice for...

Location is great, right across the street from Oslo S (Central Station). You can access trams, buses, everything from here. Rooms are quite small (no Kettle (!)) with cheaper options, but asking for a slight upgrade will bump you up with double the space, windows that open and a friggin kettle. My first room was really squishy with no space...
