Stayed here two nights for a work event and the only negative thing was that i did NOT get enough time to spend in my junior suite on the 5th floor - work kept me busy all day and evening. On first glance the room appeared quite ordinary... facing to the rear of the hotel without a view, but then I climbed the winding staircase to arrive in a darling little lounge area with the most wonderful view over Nordmarka (the hills to the north of Oslo) to the right and the town and fjord to the left. Sliding doors opened (easily) onto a fine balcony complete with small table and chairs. This would be a perfect spot to relax after a day's sightseeing down town or indeed an active afternoon's skiing in the hills nearby. The bed was big and comfortable. The window beside the bed could be opened and that's not always possible in hotels.
The breakfast selection was top class, but so are the prices at this exclusive hotel. Nevertheless, it would certainly warrant a private visit for a special occasion or holiday of a lifetime.
This hotel is quite a way from the city center, but right beside the wooded hills and Oslo's top Holmenkollen Ski Jump attraction. The metro stops nearby, though be prepared for a bit of an uphill walk to hotel. A taxi from the lively Majorstuen shoping and eating area would cost ca nok 250.
My room was in the new part of the hotel. Try for a room as high up as possible, and do stop to take a photo from the top floor elevator lobby.
I have stayed in the old part of the hotel before - on the ground floor - and this very pleasant room also had a nice, though not as spectacular, view.
Highly recommended if you want to spoil yourself or a loved one.
