The hotel is located in the mountain area in Oslo. Around 45 minutes total travel time from the city center or the University (Blindern). Around 12 minutes walk (up hill, can be difficult with heavy luggage) from the T-Bane station to the hotel.
Huge room with double beds (even if you are traveling solo), with sofas, and table. Very small TV, so do not come to this hotel if you are traveling with TV-addicted children.
Good Breakfast (unfortunately nothing with Chicken or Turkey, everything with pork). The hotel has Sauna, Gym, and Swimming also, so everything one needs in a ‘get away’ hotel. Prices are high, very high, even with Norwegian standard. The breakfast is served only between 07:00-09:00, which is odd. Different varieties of egg dishes, pure butter, fresh breads, etc. The staff is very nice, and they try their best to take care of you. The toilets do not have a ventilation, which is fine in summer (by keeping the window open for a while), but you might have trouble sleeping in winter No boiler in room, but the staff at reception is nice, and can get you warm water/tea/coffee any time (even middle of the night).
The main problem is the location of the hotel. You cannot go anywhere to eat, and the restaurant at the hotel is expensive. This is not for people who need to be at a meeting at 08:00 in City center area.
