We stayed here for three nights and found the hotel excellent. Our bedroom was in the annexe with a good sized bathroom and a view over the street one way and over gardens the other. It was clean, airy and a good size with a TV which had many European channels. The breakfast was very comprehensive with cold and hot buffet, plenty of different bread loaves, fruit and hot and cold drinks. The evening "snack" was a real bonus as it saved at least £25 per person per night eating out. While limited in choice, soup, extensive salad buffet with chicken wings or pasta or assorted sausages and bread galore with the chance to go back as often as one wished made it a real 'hit' for us. Shops are just a few minutes away and the local tram (12 or 19) took 5 mins to the city centre. A wonderful quiet area of Oslo with many interesting houses near by. When we required a taxi, reception rang for one and it came within 5 mins each time. While not in the noisy centre of Oslo we would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone.
