Stayed here back in December for city break, Was very impressed with the quality of the hotel and its honesty. Automated check in and check out is simple to use, the location is spot on for exploring, its quiet which is a bonus fora city hotel. Would happily use Citybox again and recommend to friends. Fantastic product citybox has to offer love the ethos and style.

Room tip: Don't be shy on using the automatic concierge they have, great tips for getting around the city.

Get what you pay for - clean, very reasonably priced hotel. 5 min walk from Central Station. Easy to book in. Very quiet - great nights sleep.
No/poor view from room but we didn't book it for the view.

Hi Andy A!

Thank you for your short but kind review of our hotel!

We do our best to offer a simple and modern solution at what we consider to be a fair rate - and we are thrilled to see that you felt we offered just that. We do agree that our city center does not perhaps the best view, but it is still a great starting point for exploring Oslo! :)

Thanks again for your recommendation, and we do hope to see you again!

Best wishes,
Citybox Oslo

Location - 3 minutes from the Oslo Central train station on a way to the city center.
There are many bars, restaurants and shops around.
The reception is self-service. 3 machines allow you to register, pay for your stay and give you keys. If you need any assistance, there is a person available. But machines are easy to use and withing 2 minutes you'll get your key-card.
Rooms are very clean, normal size, well-equipped. There is no TV in the room, but you can see it in the hall downstairs. No wardrobe, only hangers.
Bathroom. Spacious, with two mirrors. Warm floor!!! One towel per person. Liquid soap/shampoo is included.
Kitchen. There is a small kitchen in the hall. It has kettle, fridge, microwave oven. There are also 2 vending machines with coffees and snacks.
Overall impression is very good. I would definitely use this hotel another time and recommend it to my friends.

Hi Serval47!

Wow! Thanks for an amazing review of our hotel!

We just love reading feedback from guests that seem to understand and appreciate our concept! Why have a minibar in your room when Oslo is filled with bars? :-)
Also cool that you could make use of our basic kitchen!

Thanks again for your fantastic recommendation, and we do hope to see you again!

We stayed in Citybox just for one night, it was in a great location not too far from the train station but also walking distance to the major attractions. The self check in was really easy to use. The rooms were relatively new looking and the wifi was good. Perfect for what we needed.

Hi Nive V!

Thank you for your kind review of our hotel!

Appreciate all your kind words, and are happy to read that you found us to be "neat and clean". We do however offer both hand soap and shampoo in our rooms. And if you wish to buy a conditioner it is available in our vending machines in the downstairs lobby! :)
