I stayed at this hotel during the last week of July 2010. It has an excellent location, right off Karl Johans Gate, the main shopping/tourist street, a one minute walk from the Parliament and Stortinget metro station. It is a 10 minute walk to the central rail station, 15 minutes to the bus station, and 5 minutes to the harbour and bars, restaurants and shops at Aker Brygge. Check-in was quick and efficient, and staff friendly and helpful. My single room (no. 407) looked recently refurbished. It had a nice decor and furnishings, but lacked drawers for storage. There was a safe. The room had no view, facing inwards and partially looking at a wall, but the room was still bright. The bed was a typical Scandinavian-type bed, which I found very comfortable. I was not disturbed by noise of any kind at any time.The bathroom had a nice shower, the room had good lighting for reading and the temperature control was good. The breakfast had a good selection and was tasty - perfectly adequate. Breakfast is served between 6.30 and 9.30 am, but after 8.00 am people struggled to find a seat as the hotel was quite full. The card key is needed for entry to your bedroom, to operate the lift and to enter the breakfast dining room. Beware, the bedrooms are not self-locking for two minutes and you need to insert your card to lock the door immediately. Don't let others see you not lock your room if you walk off immediately! Between Sunday and Thursday free soup, bread and hot drinks are served in the reception area, which is excellent for budget travellers, although most guests seemed to be couples and families. The room was impeccably cleaned and replenished, and whilst I was having breakfast! In many European cities this hotel would easily pass as a reasonable 4 star standard and at £65 for bed and breakfast, this was excellent value for money in an expensive city.
