The hotel states that is walking distance from Central Railway Station, which it is, although trudging through slippery slush and snow with suitcases took some perseverance. But once there we were pleased with the immediate environment and decor. We were efficiently checked in. The room was just a standard one, so understandably it was small with no street outlook, but very smartly and appealingly decorated. A nice touch was the fluorescent sheep on the wall which faded after the lights were turned out. The shower had no door - why do they do that? - so the water splashed out onto the floor. Also no shampoo provided. These are not major problems.
The hotel is quite near the main drag of Oslo, but a bit less conveniently near to the port area especially an issue in cold snowy weather.
One of the nice things about Clarion is the inclusion of a "light evening meal" - the menu rotates through the week and really the term "light" is unnecessarily modest - we were more than satisfied with the quality and quantity of what was available. The lounge where it is served is warm and cosy. Breakfast (in a different location) was also very fine.
Comfortable and welcoming experience.
