“Good value hotel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2014

Excellent hotel only ten minute walk from city centre. Lovely, helpful staff and very clean rooms. I had a room on 11th floor and the view was amazing. Really nice breakfast with plenty of choice, good modern bar with friendly bar staff.This is a good basic hotel and I cannot fault it.

Room Tip: High floors have wonderful views

Nice, clean hotel about ten minutes walk from the centre of Oslo. Rooms modern and provide all the basics you need for a base. I was out and about most of the time and so the room served my purpose. Breakfast was a cafeteria-style buffet and was good (included in the price). Overall good value. Close to the tram and bus stops into Oslo. Supermarket and shops nearby. Ate at Jacob Aall's which is just over the bridge, which was very convenient.

Very good hotel overall: nice rooms with view, clean and tidy rooms, good service, very helpful at the reception (for info, guides, services). Breakfast very good with wide choice. Close to the city center (walking distance from oslo S).

Oslo center is in walking distance. Or you can take the tram to the Oslo S (center Station) in 2 stops only.
The receptionists are very nice and helpful. Room is nice and clean but lacks of basic things like kettle, tooth brushes...

This was a good location in Oslo - just away from the train station. The hotel was basic - we had a triple room which was very small - more like one big bed with no walking room! It was also very warm (we stayed in July) but it was comfortable - perfect for our needs. The breakfast was nice - something for most palettes and the staff were really helpful - bringing plenty of gluten free bread for one of our party! Delighted!

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the outdoor bins.... we had birds attack the bins outside our room (windows...

Very basic hotel but cosy and close to the center and Grunerlokka, if you're a fan of Harry Hole that counts for a yes! Breakfast is rich but also risky for gluten so keep asking and asking.
The area is very nice just above the Akerselva river with lots of bars in the surroundings. Really Oslo is a walking distance town so you can be anywhere in 20 min. tops.
Enjoy

We stayed there for only one night, but with good experience. First of all, it was reasonable price, judging by the everything-is-so-expensive-in-northern-Europe. We were located on a higher floor, great view, no street noise at night. Room was spacious and clean. Amenity was good too. Front desk staff was helpful. The next day, we had full buffet breakfast, which was excellent, a lot of varieties available. Location was very convenient, tram stop was only door step away, short tram ride to the CBD and short walking distance to the central station. Free WIFI. Recommend to budget travelers for sure.

Room Tip: higher floor has excellent view
