Very nice and friendly staff. Helped me to a better room with a Smile. The gym had basic equipment. I just loved bottled water for Free. But I recommend jogging because of the magnificent surrounding. The afternoon sweets were besutifully preSented. The room was cold because of an unproof balchony door. Had the best breakfast ever.

Amazing breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is located in a quiet and classy area of Oslo. It is easy to reach the city center both with tramp and bus, but only 10 minutes to walk. Deeply recommanded

A beatiful exterior, nice rooms, very nicely decorated, they actually have proper bacon and scrambled eggs (not that fake stuff), good location and really good prices if rooms are ordered early. Our favorite hotell in Oslo by far!

This was a beautiful hotel, it felt like we were staying in a large house. They offered a free light evening meal. There was parking outside and the tram to the centre was at the end of the road. The room was quite small but not an issue.

The hotel was really welcoming, with a really beautiful facade. The surrounding area was really beautiful, with beautiful buildings and a couple of embassies. I think the hotel's layout was a bit strange, the elevator was not close to the check in, we had to walk a bit to reach it and passed by the restaurant area. Even though I...
