I stayed in Clarion Collection Gabelshus after extensively reading reviews on hotels in Oslo on Tripadvisor. I must say this hotel is really that good as described in the reviews. It has a charming, homelike atmosphere. Great 100% organic breakfast and diner included. The dinner was a buffet of vegetables with some rice dishes. More than sufficient for dinner and much cheaper than eating in a restaurant in Oslo. Although I can imagine that eating the same buffet 3 times isn't everyones cup of tea.
Coffee, thea and water are freely available for the whole day and you can even bake your own wafles in late afternoon.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean and has a lot of nice seats where you can sit and relax.
The single room was not very large (quitte small) but very nicely decorated, feeling like a home room. The bed was very good.
The hotel lies near a tram in a quiet neighbourhood. The centre is within walking distance, although I must say I don't mind walking 20 minutes to the centre.
Big thanks to all the people who reviewed this hotel and helped me make my decision. I hope I can also contribute by this review.
Short conclusion: highly recommended!
