“It was a bit of a surprise”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We picked the hotel because of the high score on other comparison sites. We were surprised on arrival to find the hotel full of younger people who seemed to be very much part of a Goth / Heavy Metal scene. Having said that, everybody was very friendly and polite. The hotel was quiet and the room really great value for money.

Location is fine, in the centre of the city, 5 minutes by tram from the harbour and restaurants. Plenty of bars and cafes in the area.

Negative points - they don't clean the rooms every day but they are up front about this and the breakfast is truly minimal.

Postive points - the room was spotless, free (fast wifi throughout the building), location, free coffee 24 hours a day and very friendly pricing'

We would certainly go back.

Room Tip: I had a room on the 8th floor, no problems at all

Booked this hotel due to the price and distance towards the train station (the shortest way is to walking through the Folkteatret galleria).

The rooms are small (reflecting the word "Xpress") but cosy with red-white color scheme with updated furnitures.

Its close to Youngstorget and Brugata, which are lively at nights.

We stayed 5 nights in a twin room on one of the lower floors of this hotel. The rooms at this level are rather odd, as one side of the hotel is built within the shell of an older building, so the windows of our room looked into the gutted interior of another structure. This meant that the windows were sealed, and this was the only real area that let this otherwise good hotel down as it meant the room was far too warm. There is no air conditioning and the ventilation system, despite setting it as low as possible, kept the room at a constant 21 degrees which was stuffy for sleeping. Unfortunately, at the time there were no other rooms available with opening windows though these should be cooler. On a positive note, it has to be said that the peculiar structure of the room we stayed in meant that it was completely silent, absolutely no sound from the city got through and it was without doubt the quietest city hotel I've ever stayed in.
Apart from the temperature the room was a good size, clean and functional, and the bathroom also clean and reasonably roomy. The lack of room servicing wasn't a problem, it's not that hard to tidy up after yourself - fresh towels would have been nice, but the ones we had dried very quickly in the warm, dry air.
The staff were efficient and friendly. There is also free tea and coffee available 24hrs per day in reception, as well as a variety of food items for purchase. The hotel has a laundry with washers and dryers available for guest use.
The location is very central, making walking around the city a great option, and for more distant locations buses and trains are very close by.
For such a good location this hotel is excellent value.

Room Tip: If you do not sleep well in a warm environment, ask for a room with opening windows.

Yes, the location is perfect, very close to everything but the cleaning lady should come more often, we were there for 3 nights and we never saw her we don't mind not changing the towels for 3 night as we all care for the Planet Earth but the garbage....not thinking about this..it was perfect

The hotel itself and the staff is very good. Was in there for 3 nights all very close including the museums, harbour, shops, restaurants. But was disappointed as was advised at checkin that they do room cleaning service only every 4 days. This need to be reviewed as the value paid for expect at least a daily room cleaning service...
Plus there is a disgusting mark of glue I think in the bedroom floor.
Good thing here is at least the have a gym, a free laundry room but you need to buy your own washing powder of course.

Room Tip: If you not too picky and have an average budget I would recommend this as it is really very convenie...

Very clean, functional and friendly hotel. Room sizes are small but not too small. Friendly help given at checkin and when problem with shower was found the staff were eager to help. It's a handy location, about 5 mins walk to the railway station and very handy to the waterfront. Recommended.

We stayed for 1 night in Oslo, a very low rate compared to any other hotels. We had a 10min. walk to the central train station. The staff was very helpful in providing directions and they seemed genuinely happy that we were staying at their hotel. The rooms were clean and modern, beds very comfortable. The bathroom was large for a European hotel and the fixtures worked properly. It would be nice if they could offer a warm breakfast, but they do have free coffee/tea 24/7 and some snack items that can be purchased in the lobby. Would definitely stay here again.
