“Perfect location for sightseeing”
Reviewed 17 February 2013

This hotel is perfect for a trip to visit Oslo. Not to far from the city centre and close to some nearby spots. For a 4-star hotel I expected some more luxury. The rooms are okay, but the total feeling of the hotel doesn't match to a 4-star hotel for me. It felt more like a 3-star hotel. The staff is friendly, but they can be a little bit more guest oriented. For example at breakfast there was nobody to explain us where we could sit. In the 3 nights that we stayed there, I only saw once someone from the staff in the breakfast room. But then that person was not really friendly. There was no smile and "Goodmorning". The breakfast quality is good.

I had the pleasure of staying in this hotel during the 10th to the 20th of January as part of the European Creative Future Programme. This is a 4 star luxury hotel, decorated to an extremely high standard, very classy and with great rooms. All hotel staff were extremely friendly, helpful, professional and polite. The free WiFi was always extremely fast and reliable. My bedroom was on the 4th floor and was extremely spacious and the bathroom was small and clean, with a big walk in shower. Breakfasts were extremely delicious and tasty and there was a nice selection of hot food (eggs, sausages, meat balls, pancakes) as well as smorgasbord and breads. Some advice if staying here - it is in a nice, quiet area, about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Oslo but very close to 2 tram stops, so hop on them, they come often and if you purchase a 24 hour pass, at a very reasonable price. Overall I would highly recommend this luxury hotel to everyone and look forward to staying in the Saga Hotel in the near future !

Room Tip: Make sure to choose a bedroom on the 4th floor as these are the most spacious.

Saga Hotel is a little removed from the heart of the city in a lively residential area (I found this ideal), but it is only a block or so from a shopping street and the tram into town.

My room was nice, a little smaller than I expected, but nice. The hotel was clean, the staff helpful and breakfast was good.

Due to an intensive programme for the University of Utrecht (Netherlands), we were sent to Oslo for 10 days.

The time we had at the Saga Hotel was great. The staff was friendly and always willing to help us with any questions we might have.

The rooms are spacious, modern and in perfect condition.
As said before, we stayed here for 10 days... Every single morning, there was a great breakfast waiting for us with pancakes, omelets, fresh fruits and hot coffee.

All together, The hotels deserves a great review. I´m gonna keep it in mind and will recommend it to all my friends that are planning to visit Oslo.

Just an awesome hotel. In every way. Nothing bad to say. The staff is nice, helpful and versatile. Have been living at the hotel for 10 days during an education program, and the hotel actually feels like home. I greatly recommend this hotel!

Great service and clean. Would come back for the hotel.

Would have given 5 star but find the bath room bit too small. Wasnt aware that the hotel didnt provide any restaurant, but there's pizza down the road. Roads are very slippery in winter, making it difficult to walk around. Theres tram stop 2 blocks away.

Very friendly staff. Well recommended again.

This is a lovely hotel, decorated to a high standard, very classy and with great rooms. Our bedroom was on the 3rd floor and was a nice size and the bathroom was big and clean, with a big walk in shower. Our only complaint with the room is that the bathroom had nowhere to lay out toiletries - sounds minor, was a bit annoying.

We had read some comments about the breakfasts here, but they were great - nice selection of hot food (eggs, sausages, meat balls, pancakes) as well as smorgasbord and breads - we never had a problem eating our fill!

Some advice if staying here - it is in a nice, quiet area, about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Oslo - but very close to 2 tram stops, so hop on them, they come often (and if you buy a 24 hour pass, a reasonable price).

Overall, a lovely stay at a good price.
