“Excellent hotel in lovely neighborhood.”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

This is a fine hotel for a visit to Oslo. The neighborhood is quiet, but convenient. When the whether is nice, the 10-minute walk through the grounds of the Royal Palace is a pleasant way to reach the city center. (It's uphill coming back, but you can take the tram, which stops a hundred yards or so from the hotel.) Frogner Park is only five minutes by foot. Breakfast is very good and the staff is helpful. Surprisingly, the air conditioning was a real plus!

I always stay here when I am on business trips to our Oslo office. The rooms are nice, the staff is super friendly and everyone speaks fluent English. Nothing to complain about here. The hotel is quite central, since Oslo is not that big. Some nice, but expensive restaurants in walking distance.

In the part of Oslo called the west side, the "better" side of town.
A bit from public transportation.
Old, I mean not renovated for years, rooms.
Service as you would expect from a small hotel, nothing more than that.

Great hotel next oslo's center in a nice neighborhood, very quiet. The tramway's station is at 200 m from the hotel or you walk down 10 min to the royal palace. The breafast is good and various. I choose the same for the next trip in Oslo.

We spent a night in this hotel and liked
- good location, about 10 minutes walk through the king's gardens to the center of the city.
- free parking in the street (we were even able to park a camper/rv in front of the hotel)
- good breakfast (though the breakfast room is underground)
- friendly, helpful reception
- good size room/bathroom

I would go for a room on the 2nd floor (or higher), the first floor is just a bit above street level.

Good choice in a beautiful neighborhood away from the busy tourist/business center of town -- and with free parking. Easy options to either walk of take the tram to the central area with the ferries. We walked half the time, took the tram the other half. Another advantage of this location is the availability of local restaurants - not just the downtown tourist places. Lovely room. Friendly front desk service.

Saga is a very nice, relatively small hotel with a very good price / service relation. And its location in a quiet neighborhood and the nicely furnished rooms with comfy beds can even make you miss breakfast (which according to other reviewers would actually have been worth to get out of bed earlier)
