“Top Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

I stayed in this hotel over the weekend based on the good reviews from trip adviser. It was a good choice as the hotel was superb. It was well set up for leisure travellers but i'm not so sure about business.

Location - Very central, 3/4 mins walk from the central train station. 3/4 mins to the main shopping area and start of the majority of tourist attractions.

Room - Very large and comfortable and well equipped. Lighting was a tad dark for working but did create a nice atmosphere.

Hotel - The breakfast was brilliant as many others have mentioned. They serve a light free meal on an evening in the lounge which was fantastic and far from light - what a great idea!The staff were hugely helpful about everything and provided some great tips and advice on getting around including buying the oslo pass which i would recommend as well. My only slight problem was with laundry as it was advertised as being returned by 6pm the same same yet i had to stay up until 11pm to get it back and was then charged huge amount for the delayed service - this was unacceptable and the staff didn't acknowledge the delay nor seem to care about the problems caused to me. Free coffee in the lobby, although pretty standard in Norway was available in a take away cup and a nice way to start a walk around town.

Overall a great hotel and a one i couldn't recommend highly enough. The breakfast is very good and the free evening meal is a cut above any other hotel. The place to stay in Oslo!

Easy to reach from central train station. City centre is nearby and in walking distance.
The best: Breakfast!!!
Could be better: Gym was not available! Not well communicated.
Evening meal was good and with a good variety!

Dear Sebastian,

Thank your for your review our hotel here on TripAdvisor.
Our gym was the offer for a water leakage and was flooded - I am sorry if this was not communicated correctly. This happend quite suddenly but we will do better in the future if something simiral will happend. Our guest had the opportunity to use the gym at one of our sister hotels nearby in the time the gym was closed.

I hope to be able to welcome you back on another occasion.

Wish you a great day.

Lovely breakfast room, great breakfast, great coffee selection, small but nice functional rooms. Great location close to city center buss and trainstation. Very friendly reseption and breakfast staf. Nice design. Remember to ask for a room with a window you can open if that is important to you.

I frequent this hotel because of proximity to business. Hotel has very good location in canter of Oslo.
Stayed one night on business trip. Hotel is perfect for business trips.
Free wife, that works very well. Breakfast and small dinner in lounge included in room price.
Check-in and checkouts are fast.
Hotel restaurant is with excellent quality. Breakfast has plenty of variety.
Room is small and with dark colours. Looks tasteless to me, but that is personal opinion. In any case more importantly everything in hotel room worked. Very good bed.
Small room might not be so good for longer stay but for my one night that is good enough.
Overall excellent.

Hotel is in a fantastic location for few days trip to Oslo city centre, within close walking distance to all attractions.

Beautiful lounge area on 7th floor, take Advantage of the relaxing surroundings and roof terrace with very nice wine. Also friendly and informative male staff member (sorry forgot name)

Hotel rooms very nice except our room was extremely cold, and TV did not work. Reception sent maintenance up promptly, but heating was still terrible throughout the 3 night stay room did not get warm at night and heating was not switched on - radiator cold.

Very nice selection at breakfast, Brunost cheese and smoothies and fruit my favourite. Loved the layout and design of breakfast area. Lovely complimentary dinner in evening.

Fish shop at back entrance of hotel passage does a lovely fish and chips, always very busy and wine list looked fab. Also discovered on last day they have lobster for lunch.

Beautiful restaurants within hotel passage cortina cantina Italian very nice for pizza and proseco late in evening.

Would definitely return to this hotel, as long as rooms are warmer as very modern.

Room Tip: Room with balcony very good to check weather and fresh air, with little larger rooms which my parent...

Central hotel, close to Oslo central station (5 min) so was very handy when coming from airport and travelling on to Lysaker where I was visiting a company.
Good value for Norway, small but comfortable room, we'll appointed and recently refurbished.
Room was nice and quiet, no noise from corridor or adjacent rooms.
Great breakfast selection.
