The hotel is a quick walk from the station (less than 5 minutes), making this easy to find as first time visitors to Oslo. Also a quick walk into the main part of Oslo and to the bus tours.
They do have a facility to store luggage - which was hugely helpful to us (as we arrived early in the morning).
Staff were friendly and helpful (our room wasn't ready when we came back from touring Oslo, but they were quick to get one for us). We also needed to get a gift delivered to the person who arranged our holiday and the person on duty was happy to help us out.
Rooms are basic (no tv, phone or kettle), but perfect for what we needed and very clean.
Check in and out is quick and easy and although booking was made via booking.com the hotel did respond quickly to emails that we sent them with queries.
We didn't make use of the facilities in the lobby, but it all looked very clean.

- Citybox is a modern economy hotel with low prices. Our rooms are cheap because we keep our running expenses down while still offering our guests what they really need: a simple and stylish room with a delicate bath, a comfortable bed, a good chair, a desk and a place for hanging your clothes. Wireless broadband is available free of charge throughout the hotel. Citybox combines simplicity with comfort and low prices. The hotel is located in the centre of Oslo, 5 minutes walking from Oslo S, train staion. If you want to spend your money on something other than a minibar and room service, then Citybox is the place for you. Oslo is full of bars. Why do you need one in your hotel room? We recently teamed up with a cafe that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner for all our guests, and also provides a 10% discount for our guests. In addition they also cater to our meeting rooms. The cafe has a direct entrance from the hotel. ... more less
