We are a couple who was there for a weekend stay. We had been there before and knew what to expect. The rooms are very practical, the breakfast is very nice, the location was perfect for us (we had an appointment nearby), all at a reasonable price by Oslo standards. In addition the staff was very friendly, flexible and accommodating.

I travelled to Oslo for work and found this an ideal place to stay! It is in an excellent location though little far from City Central. However the location of the hotel is close to islands and you can stay close to nature and far from hustle-bustle of the city central. The rooms are excellent and in-house restaurant is good!

Travelled through work. Quiet room, although it could need a little touch-up. Very happy with the stay, nice staff and good breakfast. Will definately come back when I return to this area in the future.
