“Lovely hotel; great location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

This hotel suited us down to the ground: its location was central enough to give us access to the whole of Oslo, including great public transport links and a convenience store across the road; the room was neat, tidy and comfortable; the staff were always helpful; the breakfast was tasty and hearty, if a little busy at times; the price didn't break the bank. We'd happily stay there again.

Arrived early morning on the overnight cruise from Copenhagen.
Allowed us to leave our bags with them.
We had paid 200kr for an early check-in & when we enquired about this, we were told they would 'try'. Other than this the customer service was good.
The room; lovely heated floor in the bathroom, but this was the only heating in the room full stop. Bathroom was a little 'tired' broken tiles under the sink & just all round love & attention required.
Breakfast was nice.

Location is ok, streets are a little quiet later on, but as there is still daylight at midnight this isn't a problem.

Would I stay here again? Probably.

Dear football_spoon,

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay!

Good to see that you enjoyed our breakfast, and that service was good.

Regarding the bath room, I am happy to inform that we have an extra technician working this summer to handle all small details so our rooms get the love and attention they deserve.

I hope we get to see you here again!

We were allowed to check-in as soon as we arrived in the morning, very few hotels allow check-in before 2pm. The location was fantastic, you could walk to most major attractions and restaurants. Breakfast was good, I would definitely recommend the First….Loved the spacious room and the heated bathroom floor..

This hotel was quite good and we stayed 3 nights.Breakfast was good but a bit crowded as it is the bar area of the hotel. The maid service was a bit slack. Beds were not made, the paper coffee cups not replaced, no replacement tea and coffee either. The plastic water cups taken away and not replaced. The street outside is a bit noisy if window is left open.

We chose this hotel for its central location and because we wanted a hotel which was not directly in the noisier nightlife area. It met both requirements – modern rooms and a peaceful night’s sleep.

Location-wise it would be hard to better; it is an easy walk from the Central Station (under 10 mins) and close to all the main attractions of the city centre and to the ferries, waterfront, etc.

Breakfast was a tad crowded and a bit of a free for all, but the food was good. We did not use the hotel for dinner – the menu is very limited; mostly pizza.

Some more attention to detail in the bedroom would have been nice – only one paper ‘mug’ and the complimentary tea/coffee had not been replenished. Also, the room was small for what was billed as a superior room, but quite manageable.

Front desk staff very helpful and they will happily store your cases and bags after check-out so you can explore the city and collect your stuff later in the day.

Note that the hotel does not sell the Oslo Pass as some websites suggest – but it’s only a short walk to the Information centre and city hall. (Does mean you can’t get you Pass apart from normal opening hours so this prevents an early start.)

The hotel is in a convenient location, but the triple room that I was given was just a double room with a broken spare bed due to flimsy wooden planks. The breakfast buffet was overcrowded with little selection--not enough room to sit. Again the hotel is in an ideal location--I was able to walk to the subway, opera house, city hall, and a number of restaurants. Having said this, the hotel is a bit outdated and I--as well as my roommates felt very cramped in the room.

Dear Morgan H,

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay.

For your next visit I can recommend a junior suite, the cost is not much higher but you will have a larger more comfortable room.

We hope to see you again.
