I'd read mixed reviews on Citybox. Location was great for main railway station & Oslo is small enough that everything is within walking distance. Room was clean & mirror image of room in photo on website. It was clean & functional, if a little tight for getting around the bottom of the bed to the other side of the room. Automatic check in was simple to use & plenty of info sheets in reception area.
Shower was superb & Norway has delightful habit of underfloor heating in bathrooms.
Price is not cheap but it's good by Norwegian standards. For Brits - it's pretty much double for everything and then some for beer!

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
