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!
