“Great location but ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

We chose Park inn Hotel for its strategic location, within walking distance from all the major sights in the centre of Oslo. The room was not the most spacious, but certainly big enough for our three-day stay and it had a very distinct Norwegian style decoration (bright colours, light brown wooden elements, minimal design furniture). Generally, the rooms seem to be well-maintained and equipped. A major drawback is the bathroom door. We read about it in previous Tripadvisor reviews, but you really have to see it to believe it! It is a design flaw of the sliding door, which leaves a gap of around 5-6cms between the wall and the door, depriving you from the necessary privacy needed in the bathroom. I am wondering why the management hasn’t dealt with the issue yet, since there are some easy and not costly solutions to the problem (I may be contacted to propose you one myself). Also note that a safe is available only in the “business rooms” and not the regular ones, as was ours. Having asked for a quiet room, we were placed in one overlooking the backside yard of the hotel. So if you would like to have some view (to the street, nothing really special), be specific about it but also be prepared for some regular tram passages. Breakfast is of good quality and variety. Keep in mind that during weekends the breakfast room can be overcrowded. Overall the hotel is convenient for a short stay and with rather fair prices for Oslo, an outrageously expensive city. We would have given it a four if it weren’t for the bathroom issue, but it is not an issue to overlook.

Dear thada18,
Thank you for your kind words and feedback. We greatly appreciate your comments, and are very happy to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. I have personally forwarded your review to our technical manager, who is currently working to improve the issue with the bathroom doors. I have asked him to get in touch with you, should he be in need of advice! Thank you for that sweet offer - it was greatly appreciated! :)

Please come back soon and try our new and improved bathroom door solution! :)
All the best,

Excellent location and relatively cheap compared to other places in central Oslo. Nice, clean, tasty rooms. An excellent breakfast. Some of the staff was a bit grumpy during our visit. I highly recommend this place.

Clean, comfortable room and excellent breakfast. Very good location for the main sights. One minor point is that pillows were small and too large but otherwise difficult to find any problems really. We really enjoyed our stay.

Dear Paul C,
Hello there! Thank you for your wonderful comments about your recent stay with us. Our location is definitely one of our main attractions. It is funny that you should mention our pillows. As a fact, last week we a changed all the pillows in all of our rooms. So if you come back to stay with us, we hope you will notice the difference! :)

Dear TanjaKaisa,
Thank you for the time you took to write a review of our hotel - we appreciate your lovely comments regarding our tasty breakfast buffet. It is true that one of our receptionists has a stutter, but this does not in any way affect the Yes-I-Can service that she provides. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.

Park Inn Oslo
The hotel has a great location very near the main attractions, the waterfront, and the direct tram to Vogel Park. It’s a short 10-minute walk to the main station with direct rail to the airport.
The breakfast is plentiful with everything from fresh baked breads and pastries, cereals, yogurts, cold cuts, cheeses, eggs, potatoes, and local offerings like herring and white fish mousse that looks like cheese…but is not!
The room is comfortable with decent mattress, sheets, and pillows. The lighting is good and there are electrical outlets. The wi-fi is included and works very well. We had a good-sized safe.
The bathroom is functional with shower stall that has good water pressure. The amenities are limited to soap and shampoo. The towels are adequate.
The staff at the front desk tried to be helpful and did a good job.

Dear Celusnek,
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your wonderful feedback with us on TripAdvisor. Thank you for mentioning our varied and healthy buffet breakfast. Norwegians do eat some strange things for breakfast - herring, white fish pudding, and brown cheese! For those guests not as adventerous, we luckily do offer continental dishes as well! :)

Be in touch with me before your next stay so that I can get to know your preferences and ensure that you have another exceptional stay.

All the best,
