“Great choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

Me and my family had a pretty bad experience on our first night in Oslo, so we were looking for a hotel to spend a night near the city centerand not really expensive.
This hotel was a great choice as we have experienced an excellent service and the staff is very friendly, welcoming, helpful and speaks English great! The check-in was very fast.

The hotel itself is very conviniently located, we could go sightseeing or shopping within 10 min from the hotel. It's nice inside, modern design and even water and tea/coffee table for the customers.

The room was big enough for 4 of us. Even though you can notice that the furniture is a little old as well as the walls and etc., it was a pleasure to spend our night there.

The breakfast was delicious, especially those whole-wheat waffles that you make yourself basically! Everything was fine, but there is not a lot of space for all the customers in the restaurant.

Only one inconvinience is that the hotel doesn't have any parking space so you will have to pay additionally for parking lot, which is about 10 min walking.

First hotels are always a good choice. New hotels, just-enough in terms of accessories and ammenities. This particular hotel is well located right in the centre of Oslo, rooms are small,breakfast is good (specially the eggs). Good price/quality relation for a short stay in Oslo.

Very central. The facilities are very good. The rooms are good. Very clean. The breakfast is good. Near the Opera House, right in center of town. There is always coffee waiting for us in the lobby. I liked very much.

The room could have had better standard, but still OK for the price. The beds and the bathroom was good. At breakfast we had to wait for a table and the place was quite small. But there was plenty of things to choose from.

My wife and I were booked into the First Millennium Hotel for two nights. We advised them we would be late arriving back from Bergen. We left a suitcase at the hotel so were certainly going to arrive. The receptionist told us she would note our late arrival so the staff knew. On returning from Bergen there was a fire on the track and we were delayed further. We contacted the hotel and advised them. We actually advised them about our late arrival 3 times. All was fine we were told. We arrived at the hotel at 1.00am. We were told our room had been given to another customer, despite the 3 contacts re late arrival and the fact our bag was left at the hotel. We were asked to sign a document and told we would be moved to the Thon Cecil hotel (see separate review). We objected but were given no choice. We expected to be at the Thon Cecil 2 nights as that was our booking. We were told the next day at the Thon Cecil that we had to move back to the First Millennium for the second night. We objected as we didn't want to go back to the hotel given the way we had been treated. We ended up returning to the First Millennium and had discussions with the head of the reception area.

This discussion led to an upgrade and a note of apology. However, I write this negative review because the real issue was not addressed. I would expect them to use the same poor customer service practices again and double book rooms when it suits them.

If you book at this hotel don't think you will actually stay there because you could be sent off somewhere else. My advice to travellers is to stay away from this hotel. There is a lack of integrity and honesty. Their business practices are suspect to say the least.

Don't go there!

Dear Bob R,

I am deeply sorry for the problems we caused during your time in Oslo.

What has happened to you is far from the level of service one can expect, and I can assure you that this was not a part of our normal way of doing business.

Despite this I hope you had a chance to enjoy Oslo.

We stayed there for a couple of nights. Very central and perfect location close to all main sights. The room was very comfortable, just a bit tight due to the extra bed but bedding was comfy, clean with coffee and tea available.
However there was no air conditioning and it was very hot and noisy with the windows opened.
Breakfast was very good too but gets very busy and not enough room for everyone.
Also as there's no car park, you will need to park in the street.
Would definitely use this hotel again.

I stayed over for 3 nights for holiday, and had a great stay.

The hotel is in excellent location, the staff is friendly and very warm (spoke good English too) and the room was specious, clean and in good condition overall. The Scandinavian breakfast was plentiful with loads of fresh produce.

I can warmly recommend the hotel!
