To start with the review, the location of the hotel is very good. It is within a short walking distance from the port area, where many nice and vibrating restaurants could be found. Since we only had one day in Oslo before heading to Bergen (our destination), it worked perfectly for us. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel choices when it comes to organic beauty products and food is great, and the products offered both at the bathrooms and also for sale in the lobby are of very good quality. The room I stayed in was very nicely decorated, the corporate identity comes together well and every now and then you find a little decoration detail in the room that is very appealing and surprising. The nice final touch was the iMac in the bedroom wall, that works well, has a very good connection for watching videos, news or listening to music and choosing what is it that you want to see, unlike most hotels that offer a standard cable tv programming. The down side, I would say, comes to the size of the rooms, since the four-post bed (very nice, indeed!) and the tables in the room occupy most of it. Since we were staying for only a day, it was absolutely not a problem. Travelers who might have some difficulties in mobility or that are travelling with elderly people might want to check what's the biggest room available.
