We stayed at the Gabelhus for 4 nights in mid-May, 2009. We were surprised to discover that our special rate of $159 per night included both dinner and breakfast. The dinner was buffet style, and included soup and salad (very fresh), very good bread and several hot entrees. The breakfast was equally generous. Our room was fine, small, comfortable. Free internet in the lobby. The staff was quite friendly. The hotel is a nice 15 minute walk to downtown Oslo. What really made us like this hotel is that my husband was ill so that we had to stay an extra night. The rate for that night would have been double what we paid and the manager was kind enough to give us the cheaper rate for the 4th night. A class act.

She ran the place in a caring and authoritative manner at daytime and used to relax with her guests smoking a pipe in the evening. ... more less
