3 minutes walk from the central station, many restaurants and the main shopping street. Room was very basic, clean and quiet and I slept like a baby. There´s no tv in the room so for entertainment you need your own laptop or ipad. WiFi is so good you can stream all you like so problem to watch Netflix. Bathroom had...

Hi lauravirnes! Thank you for your review of our hotel! We just love reading feedback from guests that seems to understand and appreciate our concept! Cool that you found us to be "clean and quiet" and that we could provide you with a good night's sleep! Why have a TV when you can stream? :-) Also nice that you could...

Very clean, reasonably priced and excellent location. No tv but who watches tv on a short city break? So that is not a big deal. Bathrooms are also pleasant. Efficient and clean! Exactly what I needed for a budget break.

Check in was seamless, literally use the machine and if you get stuck, press the buzzer, if that fails, we saw a number of staff members around. The system works and secure in terms of using key cards to get past the door and lifts, so we felt safe. The room was spacious and very fresh, had everything we need...

Easy walking distance to the train station and great central location. Rooms are very functional and basic, think IKEA Expect that lower floors will be treated to all the city noises and sounds as windows are only single pane Do pay for the larger deluxe room as the cheapest rooms are tiny and uncomfortable. Don't expect any extras

We stayed in Citybox just for one night, it was in a great location not too far from the train station but also walking distance to the major attractions. The self check in was really easy to use. The rooms were relatively new looking and the wifi was good. Perfect for what we needed.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Citybox is a modern economy hotel with low prices. Our rooms are cheap because we keep our running expenses down while still offering our guests what they really need: a simple and stylish room with a delicate bath, a comfortable bed, a good chair, a desk and a place for hanging your clothes. Wireless broadband is available free of charge throughout the hotel. Citybox combines simplicity with comfort and low prices. The hotel is located in the centre of Oslo, 5 minutes walking from Oslo S, train staion. If you want to spend your money on something other than a minibar and room service, then Citybox is the place for you. Oslo is full of bars. Why do you need one in your hotel room? We recently teamed up with a cafe that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner for all our guests, and also provides a 10% discount for our guests. In addition they also cater to our meeting rooms. The cafe has a direct entrance from the hotel. ... more   less
