Reviewed 15 June 2014

It was a great experience for me to stay in this hotel as it's totally has it's own prospect of hospitality. the spaces are used smartly despite the room was small in size but it was equipped fully with all needed facilities. The technology used smartly in the hotel for example you can pay and book for your dinning by a machine without human interfere. The hotel located in the heart of Oslo so you don't have to worry as many tourism attraction is close to the hotel and transportation accesability has No problem at all. Norway is a nice country to visit i love you Norway.

We stayed at this hotel from 05/29/2014 to 06/05/2014.
we were a little concerned about the size of the room, since the majority of the reviews posted here talked about how small the rooms were. We booked a superior double and expected to be cramped. we were pleasantly surprised. The room size was perfect. keep in mind that this is the largest room this hotel offers. The room had a double bed, a desk with a chair, a closet and 2 side tables, the bathroom was big, almost as big as the room. There was plenty of room for 2 people to be comfortable even with an extended stay.
On the other hand, I saw the single rooms and the regular doubles, they were indeed small but efficient. In my opinion, these rooms are perfect for a 1 night stay in Oslo..
The location was excellent, the staff were exceptional and friendly. The hotel was very contemporary and new (opened in 2013). There are no restaurants or bars in the hotel, there is however a dinning room used for the breakfast buffet ( 95 K. per person), we did not try the breakfast as we don't usually eat a big meal in the morning and we found a coffee house and 2 mini supermarket very close to the hotel. There are many restaurants and cafes close by, including all the places around Karl Johans Gate, the main shopping and tourist district in the Oslo city center.
We would gladly stay here again, I would recommend the larger rooms if you are not comfortable in small spaces.

New and clean hotel and that's all I ask for.
It's true, rooms are REALLY tiny, like Lego tiny. The bed takes all the room and you have a 50cm large passage left. There's one chair and the desk is foldaway. The bathroom is small, but the shower's clean and you got plenty of towels.
Breakfast buffet isn't special. I was there for a week and salmon was good only for 2 days; scramble eggs finish in few minutes and it takes forever to get a new serve from the kitchen; you can make your own waffels but there's a line. It's an all you can eat so stuff yourself for the day and start walking around the city. All the hotel must take the sugar from the same glass container and spoons are not nearby so I saw people getting in there with hands. That's really not hygenic.
Cleaning ladies/guys are gentle and smiling. People at the desk snobbish.
What bothered me is that for 3 morning the Fire Alarm started ringing at 7am. Watching an intere hotel in the park with many wearing nothing that a pj wasn't funny...

I was a lone traveler with just a backpack for the room size didn't bother me. Sure, the room and bathroom are tiny but for the convenience, cleanliness, service and price...you can't really beat it. I tried the breakfast one morning and it's actually a very good value and there were many selections to choose from. It's probably better to eat there than at a restaurant...

If you want to stay in downtown Oslo without spending too much, this is the place. Although the rooms are quite small -- think college dorm room or cruise ship size -- it is very clean, and there was no noticeable hallway sound once my door was shut. A hot breakfast buffet is included, but the coffee left much to be desired.

This hotel is a small lowbudget hotel, with a high standard. The roms are very small (I have also tried a 1 person room). We had a room for two. As told - small room. One bed, a good bathroom, but small. This hotel has a great service, its new and it feels like spending time in a more expencive hotel.
The breakfast is very good, and the hotel is in the middle of the city....right by the royal castle.

It's a place near to everything - you can go to many restaurants, bars, pubs and other tourist places. Very easy to find even if you're first time in Oslo. Rooms are very small, but let's be frank - you use them to sleep overnight not to sit in them all day long ;) (very comfortable beds btw )
