We were looking for a hotel in Oslo in a bit of a hurry, and Grims Grenka was the most affordable we found.
The location was excellent: walking distance to the Opera house, railway station, bus station, the harbour area with the city hall... My husband and I like to walk, so we also went to Vigeland park by foot. Many nice restaurants and shops also nearby.
Our room had window to the lobby instead of the street, so it was darker and dimmer than we expected. Otherwise, the room was very modern. Nice and clean bathroom with good selection of soaps etc. Bed was comfortable, and it was really silent (once in a while it felt we were the only visitors!).
The breakfast was included and it was the best hotel breakfast I have ever had. My mouth is still watering when I'm thinking about it!
The staff was super helpful, printing us instructions how to get to one attraction in difficult location. They were always smiling and greeting us. In the last day, our bus left already around 4.30 am to the airport, and the girl in the reception brought us "take away breakfast" without asking.
If I ever go to Oslo again, I will definitely stay in First Hotel Grims Grenka!More
