OK hotel a few minutes walk from city center. Was a bit disappointed on the room comparing to what I paid. Had the deluxe room and they are spacious and that's good. On arrival the bathroom door wasn't working and the sink was almost clogged. They managed to fix the door but nothing happened with the sink. All in all an ok hotel with ok breakfast. I think it's expensive comparing to what you get.

Hi Roy,

Thank you for taking the time on giving us some feedback on your stay at Bastion.
We are sorry that you only think of it as an OK stay.
We are sorry for the inconvenience with the bathroom door and sink in your room, we are sorry that we did not catch that in time before youo had to leave us again.

We hope yoyu like to give us a second chance, if not there are a total of 4 other Collection Hotels in Oslo city center that all have something different to bring to the table.

Wish you a good day, and welcome back anytime!

I searched long and hard for an affordable hotel in the incredibly expensive Oslo & I am so glad I found this gem! Easily within walking distance from the train station we found it with no problems & checked in promptly. Yes, I agree with previous comments that the rooms are on the snug side but perfectly clean & with everything you could possibly need, but where this hotel more than makes up for that is in the value for money! Lovely breakfast, free teas/coffee/water all day, free fruit, free pancakes between 3pm-5pm AND a free dinner!!! All the food was so lovely and in such an expensive city it was much appreciated! I should also add there is an empty mini bar in the room for you to keep your own food in! Also that I am a vegetarian & found plenty of yummy things to eat at this hotel. My Partner also used the gym facilities and found them to be adequate. The hotel is located a 5 min walk from the oprea house and the city centre, and we felt perfectly safe walking around at night. I can't recommended this hotel enough for its value for money!

Great location within a short walk to the Opera House, waterfront, and Train Station to the airport!

Hotel was clean, comfortable, and the Staff made us feel very welcome and special. Great breakfast included each day, with more selections than we could every try in 3 days. Coffee and Tea with waffles were made available every afternoon for a light snack, and a light evening dinner was prepared every evening.

Everyone at the Hotel from the Front Desk staff, to the housekeeper, and those who kept the dining area clean and well-stocked were all so friendly.

A special "shout out" to Martin at the Front Desk took care of our check-in and was very helpful with information and suggestions for us, as this was our first visit to Oslo. Because of folks like Him, our first moments in Oslo were AWESOME and really set the tone for our week!

Thanks so much for the kind hospitality! We would certainly love to return some day, if possible, and will recommend this Hotel to our other travelling friends!

The location was terrific -- right near the Opera house -- and the staff were superb. Everyone went out of their way to be helpful. I do wish the bathroom had provided more space for the shower and toiletries, but have come to expect the very small facilities in Europe.

Nice hotel located central in Oslo, with only 5 minutes walking-distance from the central station (Oslo S). The hotel has 99 rooms, so it's not a very small hotel, but it appears nice and cozy. Ve booked a de-luxe room on the 6th. floor and it was tastefully decorated in British colonial style, with a nice large bed, flat screen TV, desk ,and a bathroom with a nice large bath-tub. The breakfast was perfect. It consisted of a large variety of spreads and meats, fresh fruit, yoghurt, egg, bacon +++. The only thing i missed was freshly squeezed juice, instead too sweet juice from a dispenser. The staff was very nice and helpful. I can easily recommend this hotel to both families and couples
