“Very pleasant hotel”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Good standard hotel in a very quiet location just west of the city centre. Very convenient for the 13 tram. Breakfast was excellent, and offer of a light evening meal (included in price), given cost of eating out in Oslo was welcome. Very good value. Would definitely recommend.

Gabelhus was an incredible surprise ! I love the old European charm, yet it has all the modern facilities. Our room was very charming, with new bathroom. Very clean. Included in the price of your room, you get unbelievable breakfast AND dinner, that will satisfy the most critical taste buds. Coffee and tea all day is free too. All this makes this hotel very special since Norway is extremely expensive in every way. There is an outside sitting area. In a place where Summer nights are endless due to the daylight, this will make your stay wonderful. Staff is very friendly. We will always come back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the original house. Charming.

If You are looking for a cosy hotel in walking distance to everything, try Gabelshus. I fellt welcome even before I enrered the reception and it got better. Good sized rooms, good breakfast and even if I didn't try it, a nice eveningbuffet included in the price.

I had the plassure of staying at this Wonderfull hotel for two days. I like the Central location in a quiet side street close to the city senter, close to public trasportation both for work at Fornebu, or downtown to the city center

The rooms were wonderfull and gave me a home experiance. I stayed at 210, an I realy enjoyed the big chairs where i could relax when watching TV


The complimentary evening supper was nice and tasty. And the service from the staff in the reseption was wery friendly.

I'l deffinatly return to this hotel.

Nice hotel for business trips. Intimite and kind of old fashioned. Supper buffé included - convenient when working late. Rooms have a varying standard but are in general very OK. Old and cosy building.

Hello and thank you for your positive review! We have indeed very different rooms regarding the size of the room and bathroom, and it is part of the charm of having an old building with a history back to 1912.

I am glad you appreciated both the facilities of the hotel and enjoyed your stay.

Welcome back when in Oslo next time.

Kind regards,
