“Good accommodations but nothing extraordinary”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2011

The rooms and bathrooms were clean, pretty large, and nice, but nothing extraordinary. Very easy to get to the downtown area -- we walked but buses are very accessible. Overall, we were happy with our time there but might try a different place if we went back.

Stayed July 2011, travelled as a couple

We are not churchgoers and were really surprised to find out that this guesthouse is actually run by a church organisation and I am not clear whether it was originally or is still a place for nuns / priests etc.
What I can tell for sure is that we found a bible on our bedside table in our room and there's a Mass every morning.
The room was spacious and clean and so were the shared bathrooms. The shared kitchen was small and basic. The wifi Internet connection is available for free but did not work in our room or in the corridor - only in the entrance hall.
The guesthouse location is quiet and it takes 15 minutes by bus to reach the centre of Oslo but I wouldn't recommend it as a place to stay unless you're a churchgoer!

I stayed here 5 days in october while taking follow-up studies at the university of Oslo. The guesthouse is in an old building in the middle of Lovisenberg diaconal hospital area. The hospital is owned by the private deaconess foundation and the "Parish sisters home" but it operates within the framework of public health.

The guesthouse has some rooms with ensuite bathrooms, while others have shared bathrooms in the hallway. The price is very friendly range from 400 NOK (50 Eur) per night to 950 NOK (119 Eur) depending on the room type incl. breakfast. On Weekends you have to buy breakfast at the Cathinka Guldberg-center nearby.

It is in a nice, beautiful and quiet residential area just 5 min. by bus from the mainstreet "Karl Johan" (bus nr. 37) If you would like to walk it would take you 30 min. by foot.

I stayed in room 225 a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and it was nice. It did not have a TV - and I missed it (but there is a TV-room though). The guesthouse is very well maintained. Lots of space, high to the ceiling and furnished with old venerable furnitures. The breakfast was good but simpel by norwegian standard. All in all a good place to stay.
