This hotel is a 2 block walk from the Oslo S train station which is how I arrived into the city. I stayed here for 3 days and booked a single room. My room was on the 6th floor facing inward of the hotel where I can see other people's rooms and they can see into mine. This is unfortunate because I would love to have had my curtains slightly open at night. Since I was here in July, Norway will only receive about 3 hours of darkness so even if I left my curtains open in the middle of night, it's easy for people to peek in. The TV was close to the door and awkwardly far from the bed but you can angle it to face your bed which I didn't prefer because again, people can see into my room.
I've been travelling through Norway & Sweden on this trip and I realize that it's the "norm" for the water from the shower to leak out on to the bathroom floor as you bathe. There's no separation on the floor except for the doors. Advice-place a dry towel outside your bathroom door so you can dry your feet there.
My favorite thing about this hotel is that it's near the Opera House. I spent every night walking over there (less than 5 minutes) to just sit on its roof and stare at the city view.
There's free breakfast which was pretty standard with lots of variety in terms of topping (mainly jams) and fruit salads. The direction towards the train station and Karls Gate has lots of shops and stuff to do. But the opposite direction, it's mainly just buildings.
