“Cheap without FEELING cheap!”
Reviewed 21 November 2011

Yes, this hotel is cheap as in "kind to your wallet". And yet it doesn't LOOK or FEEL cheap. What you use is what you pay for, and this principle will allow you the freedom of spending your money on what is added value to YOU. All the basics were included in the room price (EU148 for 2 nights in our case): a.o. coffee/tea, wifi access. Product: small but adequate and very clean room with a nice atmosphere (newly installed shower doors fixed the problem signalled by earlier reviewers) and good beds, People: friendly staff with a helpful attitude (some room for improvement with respect to recommendations given by receptionist for restaurants), Place: located on a bit of a bland street, but within walking distance of the city centre and the Flytoget terminal. Promotion: we will definitely recommend this hotel as a great place to stay for one or two nights in Oslo. Make sure you visit Oslo's new Opera. We loved our visit to the Cathedral at the end of the street which is open on Friday nights (beautiful interior, nicely lit, live chamber music).

Lies a bit north of Karl Johan street, so It has a good location.
The hotel looks very modern, with fancy paintings all over the place.
It has automatic check-in computers at the entrance.
I would say it's clean and fresh.
The room we stayed in was quite small, so if you (and your companion) have big luggages, then you would not have alot of free spaces.
So I don't think it's a good place to stay for longer than 1 night.
Breakfast comes in a bag at the door.
And it's very cheap to stay there! Perhaps the cheapest hotel in central Oslo:)

The hotel is very close to where the tragic bombing happened in 22th july.

Hi karlzzzen86,

We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay here - thanks for taking the time to review us.
Our twin bed rooms are a little more spacious than the single and double rooms – make sure you book one of them for your next stay (and stay a couple of nights).

What a fantastic hotel. My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and loved everything about this great value hotel. It's brand new so everything is clean and fresh. The modern check-in system makes it easy with a key sent directly to your cell phone. Great location. We had a nice dinner at Hell's Kitchen down the street and appreciated the many dining options in the area. Free coffee and wifi are also a huge plus and we loved the heated bathroom floor. Look no further for a nice, affordable (in Norway standards) hotel. 5 minute walk from the train station.

The small isn't very big but it has everything you need for a stay in the city. It's very clean and almost new in the summer of 2011. There's free coffee and tea in the lobby and two Macs available to surf the net.

...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.

:)

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.
