This hotel has one of the most beautiful lobbies in Oslo. The old world elegance is exceptional and the hotel is filled with antiques and luxurious furnishings in its common areas. There is a spa and business meeting rooms. Food was good (not great) and service was adequate (not excellent). One of the highlights is: a spectacular high tea is held in the lobby every afternoon -- very tasty and the best meal we had there. The lobby appears to be a terrific gathering place for affluent over 50 Oslo residents. Lots of meeting for drinks, etc. with an affluent middle aged crowd.
Rooms are well appointed ... bathrooms are nicely refurbished. Nice new TV but nothing else (no alarm clock, no radio). This place has a good central location within walking distance of the train station, the major museums and the main shopping district of Oslo.
Note: There are NO bellhops to help with luggage (something we have a feeling is common in Scandinavia). Views are non-existent -- many of the rooms face an alley and the views are often blocked in the ones that do face the street (we stayed in two different rooms here). Also, there is a bar on the side street that is extremely noisy at night so, if you face this side of the building, keep your windows closed! There is no free internet access with the exception of a small, stuffy (locked) office in an out of the way corner of the lobby where there is a single, very old computer you can access the internet from -- very 1990s.
