“2x4m for 90 euros/night!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

If this were a cheap hostel the double room would still be ridiculously tiny...if you plan to be able to fit your luggage in the room and still walk from bed to door stay somewhere else.

The hotel has no parking so you need to park in a tunnel about 5 min away (I was given extremely confusing directions from the receptionist, ie "go straight along this road" when actually the road takes a 90degree turn).

Maybe Oslo is just out of this world expensive but this feels like a total rip off.

Stayed here for one night in July with my family. The room was clean, the staff was nice, the location was superb and the price was right.

The only -was the size of the room as this time we had alot of baggage. If you're travelling light then this is not a problem.

Would stay here again!

Overall: a very decent hotel if all you are looking for is a cheap room where you can sleep


+ one of the cheapest rooms available in Oslo unless you want to share
+ the rooms are new and modern
+ decent bed

+/- centrally located, but a bit to walk from the train/subway (short from the tram)

- tiny room
- no breakfast included
- no amenities, minibar, etc.

We selected this hotel because it offered private bathroom, because of its location, price and good reviews. After booking our stay we received a courteous email from their front desk confirming our reservation and offering assistance.

We arrived to Oslo by air and took the train to the National Theater station. From there, we walked about 10 blocks to their site. We found a very courteous and friendly welcome. Everything in the hotel looked either brand new or excellently maintained.

The room was very tiny, similar to a cabin in a cruise ship: very functional, very clean, well designed to fit our requirements bringing only carry-ons, and again, everything looking like new.

Our room faced the street. Although we spent little time in the room, it was noisy at times: buses, emergency vehicles, cars.

The breakfast was very complete. It did not have a cook but servers were constantly adding or changing food. It included hot and cold including salmon, eggs, potatoes, and much, much more.

Room Tip: There are rooms not facing the street that should be quieter. There is a grocery store one block aw...

I stayed here for six nights in June. It is a smart, new hotel within easy walking distance of just about all the city's attractions. Yes, as others have said the rooms are small, but Oslo can be a very expensive city and I suggest that by supplying compact rooms they can provide excellent value for money. Who wants to stay indoors in Norway in mid-summer anyway?

The room had everything I needed for a great sleep, but the thing I recommend most strongly is the buffet breakfast. For NOK 95 (about £9.50) I was able to eat my fill of a delicious breakfast every day, to the extent that I did not need (or want) to eat again until the evening. In a city which can be expensive for food and drinks, this is an absolute bargain. I encourage anyone staying here to add the breakfast as an option. Your wallet and your stomach will thank you for it.

All in all, strongly recommended.

This is a great find in the heart of Oslo. It's clean and modern, and although the room was very small, it's just what you need if you want to see the city. The staff is friendly - we checked-in at 1:30am on a Friday night and it was no problem. The bed was super comfortable, I slept like a baby! We won't give the hotel 5 stars, though, because our room was not cleaned after the first night (although it didn't bother us much as it was only a 2 night stay).

The room in this hotel which we had was really small. But it does the job for sleeping and showering.

Price is cheap and the location is good. Breakfast was good, recommend it!
Waffle machine didnt really work tho..

Only minus, only credit cards accepted. No cash.
