“Clean, convenient, compact”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

The rooms are small but very comfortable and well-designed. Immaculately clean and well-designed bathroom with shower that does not flood the bathroom floor. Comfortable bed and good sleep quality. It includes more services than I would expect from a budget hotel - large flat screen TV, hairdryer etc. and service was consistently friendly and helpful. Location was perfect for my meetings. Reasonable value but not skimping on quality as a result.

A great spot if you're just looking for somewhere to crash at the end of a long day, comfortable bed, pretty impressive bathroom for the price. (We got the largest room available.) I did miss having a hotel bar/restaurant, but we knew that wasn't available when we booked here. Overall, great room for a great price. I'd stay here again if I was on a budget.

Stayed here in November for a short 3 night stay in one of the larger double rooms. Overall the hotel was good. The staff at reception was friendly, the room relatively quiet with little noise from surrounding rooms or the corridor.

Downsides: the breakfast was pretty average (but well priced compared to alternative options), the room was too hot, I had no towels when I checked in and the shampoo dispenser in the shower was empty.

The hotel is really well located, just a few minutes walk from National Theatre with the Flytoget and other trains. Bus and tram services are close by. The shop in the hotel selling snacks and drinks is useful and there is a Kiwi just across the road for a wider selection.

It's a very good option for a budget hotel so I would stay again; it's excellent value for Oslo.

The rooms are absolutely tiny — two of us were in in one of the larger rooms and it was still incredibly cramped. Between two people and two large suitcases there was no room to move around. Oddly, our bathroom was HUGE, almost as big as the rest of the room itself. Huge and... empty? Terrible use of the space — the room could have been bigger or the bathroom could have had a bathtub or something.

Also extremely sparsely decorated: the rooms are plain white boxes with no color and very poor lighting. Everything felt cheap, like all the furnishings and bedding came from IKEA. Also lost track of how many times over the course of 4 days that our room keys stopped working.

Positives: staff were friendly and helpful. Fast, free wifi. Good central location.

Beautiful and new hotel in the centre of the city easily reachable by foot from the bus station. It's a modern design hotel with a wonderful view from the highest levels. The room was small without a wardrobe but it's perfect for short stops. Very good for the price we paid for.

Room was definitely small. But yet with smart designs, it fits the basic needs of a hotel room.

New hotel, clean room. Centrally located to royal palace and other attractions. Near to nationaltheareet station.

Value for money.

It's new.
Its location's good.
Its rooms are 8m2. If you swung a cat...........
It's all incredibly clean.
It's good value if you get a special room rate. If you don't, wellllllll......
It's easy by bus at night (Use airport NIGHT bus to Raddison Blu hotel and walk).
It's easy by train in day (Use the cheaper gov't trains to/from Gardemon. Gooogle them and save! Not the expensive FLYTOGET train).
It's got everything you need in the hotel.
Oslo and the people are great.
We'd happily stay again.....but leave the cat at home next time. We are never in the room anyway, so it's really quite ok.
Safe trip everyone!
