“great hotel in a great location”
Reviewed 4 October 2010

Only stayed one night on my way somewhere else but this was a great hotel. Rooms were clean and comfortable (although a little cramped). Had a nice view but got a lot of concert noise through the windows until midnight. Breakfast was wonderful!

We booked this hotel over the internet--somewhat late as we had planned to stay somewhere else--but tripadvisor reviews highly recommended this hotel--and they were right. Our room was large, with a balcony and a view of the opera house and the fjord. We arrived late--the staff was wonderful. The hotel is new and is very accommodating to families with children (did not affect us but we were glad to see it)

The hotel was a few steps farther from the port but we could walk everywhere very easily. The breakfasts were very good.

We really enjoyed our stay.

Hotel was centrally located, an easy walk from train station and staff was friendly and helpful. Had internet service in the lobby, rooms were clean and bright. We had a corner suite (didn't ask for it, just got it). It had a sitting room with TV and kitchenette, and seperate bedroom with TV. We stayed three nights. Breakfast was plentiful and as we were departing early one morning, a bag breakfast was prepared for us. Hotel was in easy walking distance to waterfront, and most attractions.

My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights in June. The hotel is well located and easy walking distance to all the main attractions. Our room was a very good size and included a living area with a sofa bed. The bathroom was small and there were no toiletries provided except for one cake of soap, there were not even any tissues. The bathroom did not have a power point and there was no mirror in the bedroom which made it difficult to dry your hair.

There was free Wi Fi which worked well and the buffet breakfast was ok. There was no air-conditioning and even though it was cool outside our roo was very warm.

I chose this hotel because of all the good reviews and I think I must have had bad luck.
I agree that the location is good and the only complaint that I have about the breakfast is that they stop replacing things far too early.
We were placed on the 7th floor and the view was non-existent (an interior courtyard), so I didn't quite get to see the panorama. The room was in fact an appartment and I had no need for an oven or a dishwashing machine, though I could have used some more space if they weren't there.
On the other hand, my son's bed was placed in what seemed to be the living room, which had no curtains that could protect from the light, so at 4.30 am it was hard to sleep because of daylight.
Maybe the part of the staff that was helpful was on holiday, because, although people were polite and looked friendly, they were not able to satisfy a simple demand like an extra umbrella. We also tried to change to another room and it was not possible (ok, I understand that this request could be a bit more difficult to satisfy).
Don't get me wrong, I think the hotel is OK, but if this is "one of the best hotels in Oslo", what to think about the others?
Maybe it was just bad luck.

We stayed here during a short visit to Oslo and didn't need a taxi or the subway once. It's near all major attractions including the sea port (where the ferries and shopping are) as well as Akershus castle. We even got the express train from the airport and walked to the hotel! It's that convenient.
The hotel itself is very clean with a very helpful staff. They also provide you with an excellent breakfast. In the room you get the basics. A clean bed, a clean bathroom and a flat screen TV, but don't expect toiletries and extras. Considering we had a lot to see in a short time, it was a great home base and we were perfectly happy to forgo lux amenities in exchange for a great value. Would definitely stay there again.
