Quiet and nice surroundings at Frogner in Oslo where there is a short distance to many restaurants and shops. It is also a short distance to the center of Oslo. Great service from the hotel staff. Very good breakfast and in addition you get good and healthy evening meal.

Needing a quiet, central and nice place to stay in Oslo, go for this little hotel close to Bygdøy and the Royal Castle. You`ll get a good nights sleep, the breakfast is really good and when your return to the hotel in the evening, they offer you an excellent complimentary dinner buffet. The atmosphere is just like home.

Fab hotel, with inclusive breakfast and evening meal, and the food is great. Clean, bright room, hotel location and facilities very good, staff friendly and helpful. About a twenty minute walk from central station, and great location. Ten minute walk to the restaurants, bars and shops at the harbour area. Well served by buses and trams, and the ferries to the Kon-Tiki and Fram museums. Couldn't failt it and clearly popular with Norwegians which is always a good sign.

Located in one of the more affluent and beautiful areas of Oslo - Frogner - Gabelshus is one of those hotels makes you feel as though you're stepping back in time. The hotel which was built in 1912 in New Baroque style, has always been a guest house, and looks the part. The beautiful facade is now overgrown with vines, which soften it's imposing size along the quiet Gabels Gate. Outside, a few patio chairs and tables are the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffe in the morning, or a chilled afternoon drink after a long day at work or sightseeing in Oslo.
The hotel itself is now a combination of two buildings (one the old house, the other a newer building in the back), but they have managed to retain the historic feel, in the main building. The old library, restaurant and other spaces, are all decorated with antiques, and in darker wooden tones.
The standard room I had this time, was not fancy, but quite spacious, and facing Gabels Gate. The beds seem fairly new, and the furnishing a mix of old and new, without any apparent red-thread. The bathroom was possibly the smallest one I have ever seen, and I litterally had to dry myself off in the bedroom due to a lack of space.
The breakfast was good - both warm and cold foods to suit most Western travelers.
Gabelshus needs a good refurbishment, as it's starting to look a little bit worn, but it's a really nice place, in a fantastic location and friendly staff, in one of the better loacations in town. I would rate it better than average (i.e. Good), but not quite Very Good.

Glad we chose this hotel for arrival after long day of flying. The hotel is very reasonable price given free evening fish and potatoes type meal which was very tasty. The room air was fairly dry, but could have opened windows as quiet. Easy gateway to west Norway as well.
