We spend 3 nights here during our stay in Oslo and were very pleased. We arrived before check in and the staff took our luggage off our hands and told us they would do their best to open a room for us before the typical check in time of 3. We walked around the city and found the time passed quickly. Upon our return we found they had upgraded us to a business suite at no extra charge. This was certainly a pleasant surprise. Our room had a fridge/freezer, oven, and stove which allowed us to prepare some simple meals in our room, a very pleasant surprise which saved us some money in an expensive city. The balcony was amazing and our view (from 11 floors up) was stunning. We spent every evening enjoying the late night sunshine and watching the city unwind.
As for the nitty gritty that everyone wants to know when checking Tripadvisor, the rooms were clean and well maintained. The shower in the bathroom was strange (swinging door that doesn't really close to anything so water splashes over the toilet during the shower) but we simply left the lid down while showering and it didn't pose us any difficulties. (The sink and towel rack stay dry.) The breakfast was very good, lots to choose from and everything was tasty and fresh. There is free tea/coffee and biscotti cookies round-the-clock in the lobby. The hotel has a lot of cute little extras for those travelling with kids. A little care pack is given to each child on arrival with crayons, coloring books, a token for a free ice cream, and some toys. There are toys in the lobby and the breakfast has plenty of high chairs available, bibs and childrens dishes, along with a special breakfast area made easy for children to fix their own plates. The location is very accessible to downtown, right in the heart of things.
All in all it was a great stay and we would be happy to stay there again of the occasion arises.
