This hotel was trumpeted as a supposed messiah for an otherwise lacking first class hotel in Oslo. To be honest it is nothing special there is too much emphasis on a supposed 'style'. Like most things in Norway it lacks that "A" factor in is no way what I would deem luxurious. It panders to the 'trendy' crowd but lacks a certain class and seems to be aimed at the 'new money brigade', The location is tucked away and has the feel of a modern office block from the outside. It trades on its supposed prestigious location but frankly the area is ugly with a hotch potch of glass and metal built monstrosities that will look dated in 10 years. It totally lacks atmosphere! Also the prices of rooms are exorbitant completely over the top. I suggest the management take a good look at the reception area it is about as warm and welcoming as a morgue with a very dingy atmosphere. Overal a big disappointment and offers very little value for money. I would not recommend a stay here.
