We stayed 2 nights in this hotel in Sept. 2017. Surprisingly, the weather was nice and sunny. We were able to walk to most of the tourist spots nearby including the the National Gallery, city hall and ferry.

The room is clean, but small, especially the bathroom. Just not much space to move around. The best is the buffet breakfast. Plenty of options, hot and cold items.

If I go back to Oslo, would definitely stay there again for the great location and reasonable price.

Stayed: September 2017

This was my first stay at this hotel. I chose it because it was the cheapest option on pretty short notice, and I was only there for sleep, as I went out for dinner less than an hour after arrival. Smooth internet check-in, my room was at the 7th floor, with a nice bed, a desk and a chair. I suppose that the modest price was due to the upgrading that is going on, which may cause some disturbance, although not in my case. Breakfast was great.

Basically an average hotel though, but the quality of the breakfast and price allows for four stars.

I have stayed here twice on business most recently in Sept 2017
I have yet to find my go to hotel in Oslo.
Not a huge amount to say about this hotel other than that its very nice. Comfortable rooms. Nothing flash, nothing fancy.
Breakfast are OK again no frills.
I probably wouldn't go back as i continue my quest for a quality regular hotel in Oslo.

Dear Michael,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experience of the hotel!
Hopefully we will get a second chance to be your go-to hotel as we can confirm that the hotel will get a total renovation of all the rooms. 2018 we will be as good as new, just in the middle of Oslo city centre.

Great hearing from you.

Kind regards, Andreas, Booking Manager.

We really enjoyed our two night stay at this hotel. The location is perfect for exploring Copenhagen on foot and the price reasonable. The rooms were cosy, clean and the bed very comfortable. We had a corner room and did find it quite odd however that the window faced into the atrium where breakfast is served, meaning the weather is a bit of a surprise when you leave the hotel! The breakfast is great, with lots of traditional Norwegian touches. Given the high price of eating out in Norway, I would recommend eating as much as possible at breakfast to stand you in good stead for your day of exploring!

Dear Adele25,

A warm thank you for giving us such a nice feedback.
Even though Copenhagen is just a short 24 hours boatride away - we hope you enjoyed the city just as much as Oslo!

Lovely to read that you had a good night sleep, as well as you enjoyed our breakfast.

Hope to see you back in the Norwegian Capital on your next journey.

Kind regards, Andreas, Booking Manager

This hotel is in the perfect location. Close to the harbor and close to downtown. Very clean. It is a little quirky having the window open into the atrium, but it certainly isn't a problem. Modern bathroom, plenty of space.
