“Very Rooms and Location”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

Did not like the small dark rooms, they reminded me a bit of faulty towers. The hotel itself is impressive in appearance when you walk into it. The food was average enough. I only had breakfast and it was bland. But the rooms...awful!

I stayed there a few weeks ago and found the staff rude. They also have an unadvertised policy of no visitors after 11 pm. I felt like I was staying at a youth hostel. Would never stay there again.

Deasent hotel located in the middle of Oslo, next to railway station. Only complaint is a bit small rooms, otherwise nice looking. Nice view of the new operahouse and the fjord from some of the rooms, but also of some not so nice traffic and building sites. Great buffet breakfast.

Nice hotel in front of the new and amazing Oslo Opera House. Very close to the city centre and extremely convenient for people arriving from/leaving to the airport. It is located exactly in front of the Oslo central station, where the Flytoget fast train connects to main destinations, including airport (20 mins ride).
If you can, ask for a room far from the station/tracks. Though insonorization is good, around 5/6 in the morning announcements start and you can hear some noise.
I benefited from a discounted rate as I was attending a conference. So, all in all, 160 euros was good value for money.

Stayed for one night on business. hotel was well located very clean and nice staff. Restaurant food was excellent - and I mean really good! Just don't get a taxi from the airport ... It cost me 1100 nkr .... More than the room rate! Get airport express to central station.
