Just a few steps from Oslo Sentral railway station and also well located for accessing all the city centre attractions. Location is top notch. Our room overlooked a central courtyard and was very quiet/clean. The room was not huge and it seemed a smallish double bed, although there was enough space for us to store our luggage and the bed...

The best thing about this hotel is its location, close to the central station and the hub of most communication lines. But apart from that my experience was rather average. Check-in and -out was OK, friendly receptionist, but I had a long walk to my room, and so also when going back. The room was quite small, facing a quiet... More

What is good about the hotel: Close to the railway station and shopping. I had a depressing room, small, dark, not clean. The room was in need of renovaton. This was one of my worst hotel experiences ever in relation to the prize.
