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.
