Perfect location if you're travelling by train as it's just an easy few blocks from the station, and just 1 block off of the main pedestrian thoroughfare, Karl Johansgate. There is not much else on Prinsensgate itself but there is a small (though somewhat pricey, but what isn't in Norway?) coffee shop on the corner if you're walking toward the city center. It will be a bit noisy if you were hoping to sleep with open windows -- Prinsensgate is a bus route and the buses seemed to run late into the night (and there are the pedestrian crossing signals which make noise as well) -- but with the windows shut tight almost all the noise is mitigated. The "no front desk" thing was actually not a problem as the 1 person on staff was still able to help with questions when needed. The room was sparse, but tidy and clean. Would definitely consider other Citybox hotels given our experience.
