In this hotel you are close to anyting and i the middel og excelent service and very good breakfast, lunch and dinner.
On the one hand you have Oslo central station and on the other hand Oslo Opera, and
If you ask for a suoerior room at top floor, you will get a great view, and a private terrace and the littel extra - try it!

OK, so Europe means high prices and small rooms but the Opera did a good job in a small space and it's location near the train station can't be beat. The rooms are well laid out and while efficient are still comfy. We started off our tour of Scandanavia here and it was a great start. There is a Hertz car rental across the street. The breakfast menu gets an A+ for selection although the pancakes were hard to get.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the new Opera Building

This hotel is the best one I have been to in a long while. I am a single traveler but had a double room which overlooked the railway station but the train anoucments never kept me awake. Had an evening meal which again was PORK! Also a starter that made me ill next morning so I only had bread for breakfast so I cannot coment on breakfast. The pork was not cooked and the veg was still raw. Food was a let down here. But I would stay here again.

what i love the most of this hotel is just in the center of everywhere. Oslo central station is just 100meters from the hotel door step. Oslo Opera House is just in front. and the major shopping area is just walking distance. Love the breakfast as well. they are amazing. fresh salmon and sea food. Love it. definitely will be back to this hotel when I'm in Oslo,

We stayed here right at the start of of 2 week trip to Norway for 1 night, and then right at the end for another night. Both times the hotel was good. The breakfast is fabulous, starts at 6.00am, which was really good as we had an early train to Trondheim. This made it possible to still have time for breakfast, there are chefs making fresh omelettes as well as fresh pancakes.

the rooms are clean and had the best lighting in Norway, (not too dark) the bathroom is immaculately clean, the shower was good and the bath is a really good size. The hotel is located right near the train station. The trains to other parts of Norway as well as to and from the airport all pull in here. There is a taxi rank outside the hotel, despite this we were not disturbed in our sleep.

the tram stop as well as the bus stop is also near the train station, and thus near this hotel, as is the tourist information centre. You can get a travel card for 24hours, which can be used on all busses, trams, and ferries in Oslo. The hotel is very close to the Opera House, which is worth a visit

I would recommend this place and happily stay here again.

This hotel had the best breakfast buffet we experienced on this month long trip. Chefs in the dining room make the food hot and fresh.
The staff were helpful and very courteous. The location is central and right next to the train station.
Our rooms were decorated with dark wood furniture that gave an elegant look to them. The rooms were a bit small which seems a Scandinavian standard.
We enjoyed our stay here very much.

ok hotel, clean, but July was hot and there was no air conditioning in the rooms. There is airconditioning in the hall. Our rooms faced the inner courtyard with views of the top of the roof and other inner rooms. When we opened the window for air the train announcements kept us awake. When we questioned the staff they admitted there was no air in the rooms, after avoiding the question, but moved us to a higher room with no outside access through the window.
The staff pleasant, the breakfasts were great.
