Stayed for three nights in the older part of the hotel ( second floor facing the street) at the end of June. It is a lovely relaxing place to come back to after a day sightseeing. Coffee, tea, cappuccino is available 24/7. Waffles!!! In the afternoon! A coffee maker is also in the room. Breakfast was delicious, as was dinner. We probably saved US$80 to $100 a day not having to eat dinner at a restaurant.
The only quirk was the bathroom. The door is glass. Now I must say in our room the door did NOT face directly out to the room, so my sister and I were able to maintain privacy.
Other than that, I don't think I would ever stay anywhere else in Oslo.
