Arrived at 2 pm and wanted to check inn. Was promptly told that it was not possible to check inn before 3 pm. Disappointing, but at least the hotel has a nice lounge and free internet and I also ordered a beer while waiting so an hour went quick.
The hotel is great located with a marvelous view over Oslo and the Oslofjord. It's also neighbor to Holmenkollen skijump and ski-arena.
The hotel has a long history and is an icon in Oslo with the oldest part looking like its straigth out of a fairytale. The oldest part is housing a restaurant and meetingrooms and all the hotelrooms are located in two new wings. We got a room toward the backside with no view, but the room was great. Modern, fresh and clean with a 32" lcd tv and a nice stone wall.
The breakfast was very nice, buffet-style with a cook making eggs any style on demand.
All in all a good experience, but due to the unnecessary strict check-inn/out policy I will not rate it as exellent. No check-inn before 3pm and 100nkr pr hour for late check-out is to strict.
