Friendly efficient staff, good central location. Rooms and communal areas a little tired/dates but clean. No bedside table in rooms which I thought was odd. Where do you put your books, phone etc... Good breakfast

Great hotel that is nearby almost everything. Great staff. Just a short walk to Majorstuen, Aker brygge and Oslo city and with the tramway just outside the hotel, you can go anywhere quite fast. Nice restaurants within the nearest perimiter.

Stayed there two nights. It's both close to downtown and the subway, and to the university where you can go easily by tram. The breakfast was great and really diverse, but the place isn't cheap. Good rooms otherwise.

Have been here before and feel comfortable here. Rooms are starting to wear down but it's intimate, great location, great staff and a great breakfast buffet.

I have stayed at this hotel for the past 5 years when making regular work visits to Oslo. The building is gracious and interesting and the many rooms I have stayed in are all different.

The hotel is situated perfectly, right in the center, close to everything - train staition, unversity campus, shopping and restaurant streets, buses and trams stops, park, waterfront, city hall, music hall, theater, etc. The building is old and beautiful with a lot of character. The breakfast is brilliant, also for people with allergies and vegetarians. The rooms are very small...

This hotel used to be in the Rica chain. Unfortunately it has taken a turn towards the Scandic way of running the hotels. Low quality, but still not cheap.

The hotel is centrally located. The personnel were very helpful and it was nice and clean. The only negative is that we ordered a family room, but there is no way that the room we got could be considered that. It was a normal room with an extra cot.
