“Best hotel in Oslo!...”
Reviewed 6 November 2011

...if you stay at a good rate!

Book your room through the Low Price Calender, and get a rate as low as 299,-! Spend your saved money on a fine restaurant, like Statholdergaarden, Julius Fritzner, etc.
Oslo is not a city for great hotel experiences, so why waste money. Stay at Xpress, have your breakfast at Grand hotel, or Continental hotel. 5* luxury at a bargain price!

Great sleep quality, free coffee, helpful staff, central location. Everything just gets better with this hotel the lower your nightly rate is. :) Spend your money on something to remember Oslo by. Not on an overpriced hotel. I am a Choice loyalty member, so if Xpress is full, choose one of the other Choice hotels in town! :D ;)

DO NOT have the breakfast bag. Just don't do it.You will end up eating half of it, and taking an early lunch. It's 85,- (Eur 11,-). If I remember correctly, breakfast at the historic Grand hotel is 140,- (Eur 18,-). This hotel is were Ibsen used to lunch. Ibsen did not have the breakfast bag. He would, maybe, if it was a tasteful breakfast bag...

I stay at this hotel on a regular basis, and it is the best hotel in town. Everything else you need can be bought nearby.

Reviewed 17 October 2011

While touring Scandinavia with a friend, we stayed at the Comfort Hotel Xpress for three nights, from Aug 18 - Aug 21, 2011. We paid 695 NOK/night, including tax.

Location is excellent, right in downtown. The room was small, clean and comfortable. Wireless was free. (The password changed each morning, and can be obtained at the front desk.) The atmosphere is very casual and informal. They charge for most extras, like fresh towels. Overall, I would definitely stay here again given the great value. However, I did experience some minor annoyances.

1) *Beware the early check-in fee!* We arrived at 11am with luggage, but check-in time was not until 3pm. We wanted to store our luggage until check-in, but they were out of space. Instead they charged us an early check-in fee of 100 NOK, just so we could put the luggage away in our room. I could find nothing in the fine print about such a fee, so I feel they should have been more up-front about their limited storage space and early check-in fee.

2) We bought food for the mini-fridge in our room, but it didn't work. I asked for help at the front desk. The worker was new and didn't know about the fridge, so he recommended I wait five minutes for the next worker to arrive. He arrived ten minutes late, informed me that they were in the process of removing the fridges from the rooms, and offered to store my food in the office fridge.

3) The coffee area had plastic spoons, but they ran out on Friday. I asked, and for some reason they couldn't replace the spoons until Monday.

Luckily these things were no big deal, but they suggest disorganization and unreliability.

The hotel is surprisingly good. It's a no frill hotel without cleaning service (you can pay for that) and it is designed for people who stay in Oslo for no more than 2 days. You can even do you self service check in and check out. The room is small but if you are tourist, you just need comfortable bed anyway which is what the hotel provides. The location of the hotel is also excellent; close to the central station.

The only thing that annoyed me is the bathroom design. It's small and no shower curtain so half of the bathroom will be wet. And hanging hair dryer very close to the sink? hmm.

Anyway, I would still recommend this hotel. It's a good bargain in the expensive Oslo.

When searching for a hotel for our two day stay in Oslo, I wanted something that was affordable and within walking distance to the train station and other major city attractions. This hotel was the perfect choice. It opened in January 2011; so it's new, modern and clean. While small, our room was very comfortable. Coffee in the lobby is free and so is high speed wireless internet access. There are also computers that you can use in the lobby. The check-in process is designed to be self-service, but someone is there to assist you, if needed. The staff was also very helpful in giving us directions and suggesting restaurants and bars. Drinks and food are also available for purchase in the lobby. For what we paid and what you get, this hotel is an amazing value in a great, central location.

This cheap hotel is situated near the main attractions of the city center and offers rates below those of the other hotels. Check-in is via computer (there is somebody to help) and most can be done by yourself. Also they do laundry or cean up your room on demand, which saves in costs and the environment. Rooms were is bit on the small side, but were otherwise clean. So, no fancy but a laid back hotel. Good for a short stay, with excellent rates,

We stayed for four nights and really enjoyed the hotel. As we arrived in the morning and the check -in was only possible in the afternoon, the staff kindly accommodated our luggage. The hotel is centrally located – just 5 minutes walk from Karl Johan and 10 minutes from Central Station. Our room was very good, comfortable, clean and quiet. I loved the idea of cutting costs by not including daily cleaning – good for the environment and for your wallet! The self check –in is simple, but they always have a staff member to help – they are very friendly and helpful. There was free wi-fi in the room and complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby area. We would definitely stay again!

New and cheap hotel with bodern check-in system - you don't need anybody from reception to get your keys, only passport and booking number!
google for lawpriskalendaren to get this hotel just for 299 Norwegian crones. I usually pay 2-3 times more for hotels in Oslo. But this one is near the center and also parking is free of charge on the street during the night
