“Cozy and comfy fit in a small space”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

I stayed in a standard single room which had the basic essentials for my stay: towels, soap, shampoo, minimal clothes storage, desk and a comfy bed (of course). The TV and free hot drink by the lounge was a bonus. There was a wide range of food for a hearty and healthy breakfast, a real treat. Only downside would be that the elevator was often malfunctioning during my stay, and I find the prices a bit high for a budget hotel (then again, it's Oslo).

Mother in-law gave me and my wife i night at this hotel to make it easier to be early for appointment in Oslo. Travelled to Oslo the evening before, spent the night at the hotel, and ready the next morning for meeting.

Neat hotel close to the main shopping street, Karl Johan. Close to the center station. The rooms are quite small, but I'm not in Oslo to be at the hotel for other than sleep and shower. The beds are lovely!

At 6 am I woke up, smelling scrambled eggs from the air conditioning.
The breakfast lounge is cold. The breakfast is typical Norwegian every day breakfast. The last time I was here I'm July, I pointed out the staff in the breakfast lounge would walk around carrying the dirty plates, they still do it.
The coffee / tea machine down in the reception was out of order both in July 13 and Jan 14...

Stayed 10 nights when in Oslo on business. Struggled at bit to find the hotel when first arriving. Although the location is relatively central I did feel a bit uncomfortable walking home in the evenings as the hotel is situated a bit away from the busy streets. However, the rooms are quiet and the beds are great so slept really well. Free WiFi in all rooms. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent, with a huge selection of lovely food and drinks to choose from. Only little complaint was there was quite a strong smell of food coming into the room via the airconditioning in the morning. Would definitely stay here again, it is great value for money.

I've stayed here a few night lately, great place to spend the night though it's a bit difficult to find.

Rooms are new, clean and colorful. Very pleasant staff.

The hotel is located in a very nice area with lots of interesting shopping around, plenty of restaurants (give the persian one across the road a shot - very good but not on TripAdvisor yet).

8-10 minutes walk from either Oslo Central Station / Oslo S or Nathionaltheateret.

I'll definately be back when I need a good and reasonable room in Oslo.

Room Tip: Higher floors = no noise at all. Never tried the lower floors.

Stayed at the hotel for business purpose. The hotel has clean rooms, the breakfast is very basic, but good, and the personell is fantastic and very helpful. The location is perfect: in the city centre with everything nearby, and close access to public communication. The area where the hotel is situated is safe, quite and nice.

The only minus is that there is no refrigerator in the room.

Will stay there again if I'll only have a small travel budget.

One night stay. Friendly and professional staff. Clean and modern and comfortable room. Quiet. Free Wifi. Great price too. Room 301. Double bed. Would be a bit small if I was not alone. Great location as well.
