Stayed one night on a conference in Oslo. The location is great. Small, but quiet room. OK bed and ok service. Breakfast a bit simple, but satisfying. Recommended for travellers or business men who just need a place to sleep for good value with a central location.

Stayed: February 2014, travelled solo

Hotel was very nice. we liked the breakfast as well. very good service at breakfast :) hotel was very neat and clean,
but the smell in the hotel was very bad, i m very sure that the smell was because of the carpets.
we stayed in room 340, room was very clean and good, bathroom was good also but there was a very bad smell in bathroom as well.
we want to visit that hotel again but because of the bad smell in hotel maybe we choose other hotels. i m giving 5/4 points for cleaness , 1 point is minus because of bad smell.
hotel was clean but smell :(((( please do something with that, ur hotel is very nice :)

We had a short Saturday to Sunday stay here for our Oslo weekend. Had stayed here some years ago, and chose the hotel now for the perfect location for our activities near the main street.
This is not a new hotel, but clean, stylish and cozy with a big and old fashioned staircase.
Elevator was a bit slow, but it did not matter. It gave us the opportunity to walk the grand stairs.
Our room was a bit small but big enough for two for a night.
Bathroom was also clean and OK. Hair dryer provided.
Breakfast was good but breakfast area was a bit crowded close to check-out time on sunday and it was a bit difficult to find seating.
Free WiFi included. Easy log on and good speed.
Not the cheapest hotel, but close by hotels are way more expensive. All in all good value for money if you want this location.
We will use this hotel again if the opportunity comes by.

Room Tip: Our room was facing the main street, so on a Saturday night you must expect music and noise until 4am. However it was still possible to fall asleep, and street life is part of the concept for a hotel with this location. Some rooms facing the back yard may suffer from smells from nearby restaurant kitchens. Ask in the reception, they are very helpful in recommending rooms.

Used this hotel for a number of business trips (note booking choice not mine!) as located very close to our office in Oslo.
Hotel is in a great position, right in the centre and an easy walk to see some of the beautiful sights of the city. Oslo is great but very expensive.
The hotel itself is very tired, in my room I had curtains hanging off the wall! On a positive note the hotel is clean and useable just be prepared for a very tired interior. Would not recommend as many other better hotels to chose from nearby
