Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 July 2014

I need to preface this review with the comment that the four-star rating is not because of the rooms. The rooms are very small and for American travelers the decor and amenities will remind you of a college dorm room; they are austere and the bathroom is tiny; bath towels and hand towels are provided but no wash cloths. The lamp in our room was broken and upon arrival the elevator was out of order. The elevator is tiny, able to hold only 4 people and if one has much luggage, it can hold even fewer people. However, the hotel is centrally located (right by the national gallery and 3 blocks from the town hall. The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful; I cannot say enough nice things about them! In the price of the room, breakfast and a "light" supper are included. The breakfast spread was awesome -- with everything from hot cereals, eggs, bacon, sausage, cold cuts, pastries, and an amazing selection of fresh fruits. The "light" supper was also amazing; it included a salad bar; soup; fresh breads, and several entrees. it too was delicious. Given the price of eating out in Oslo, this feature of the hotel was an amazing value! Thus despite the dorm-style rooms, I would highly recommend this hotel.

Thank you for you review, we appreciate it! :-)

The size of the rooms varies a lot, and some of them do have very small bathrooms.

Great to hear that you were happy about the staff and meals, and we really hope to see you again next time you visit Oslo. We promise to give you a room with a bigger bathroom :-)

Me being picky!! I am just reading other's reviews saying that for them was excellent, now I feel bad.
The hotel is in an old building, and this makes it cozy, the room was OK not so big, but nice and clean, with a comfortable bed, the bathroom is nice and clean, however the hot water takes some time to come out (I was on the top floor), so you have to expend some minutes running the water.
The elevator is very tight, I would say that 3 persons there would feel like in a Japanese train (bit exaggerated, but 4 will for sure)
I didn't know about the dinner, but in any case I was so exhausted that I didn't mind to go out of the room once I have gotten a long relaxing shower.
Breakfast, even thou it was nice, I would say that it has only the essentials, no vegetables were available, only 1 type of ham / salami, and I don't recall fruits. But you'll find cereals, few types of bread, fried/scrambled/boiled eggs and yogurts.
The receptionist was very kind and helpful.
In general it was an OK experience for me, and considering the prices in Norway I'd say it is good

Room Tip: I think that on the inner side are quieter

The Clarion Group's offer of free breakfast and supper at the Savoy is unbelievably good value for expensive Oslo. The supper is substantial despite only having one or two hot main dishes (changed daily). Free tea/coffee and waffles also offered for tea. The double room I stayed in was clean, comfortably furnished and quiet. The location of the hotel is excellent and the staff (especially the kitchen staff) friendly. This hotel is great value for money and a money saving idea in a very attractive but expensive city.

My 14 years old daughter and I stayed in Clarion Savoy one night in a twin room. The personal was extremely friendly and helpfull. We got our room as soon as we arrived at noon. The room was nice and very clean, comfortable beds, a desk and a TV. The location of the hotel is top, next to the National Gallery, very close to the Royal Palace, just in the heart of the city. In addition to a nice breakfast buffet you can enjoy tea and coffee whenever you want and a complementary light dinner (kveldsmat) is served between 6 and 9 pm. It was exactly what we needed after a long and busy day in town. The dinning/leisure room is very nice with a variety of games and books both for adults and kids. We enjoyed every moment of our stay, will be back.
