          Great little hotel, amazing breakfast and easy and welcoming service. I loved the cashless way of doing business. The room was small but good enough for a few days in Oslo. Location was perfect, walking distance to everywhere.

          Hi We arrive to Oslo soon. We will arrive at Rygge airport at night next week and will be getting the express coach to the central bus terminal at 11:45pm. I assume that we will arrive at the central bus station at 12:45am. Is it safe to walk through the city with our suitcase from the station to the hotel this late at night? Or should we look for alternative travel?
