This was a great find in Oslo. I'm all about walking cities and even though Oslo is not really walkable in a day, there was a lot to see just around the hotel from the Opera house, to an old fort and tons of museums. The rooms were nice, but perhaps small for American Standards, but really, how much time do you spend in the room anyway? The bathroom was really interesting because the shower folded out. I thought it was kinda creepy at first, but after a while it grew on me. The most impressive thing about this hotel was the service. My friend and I arrived late at night and Christian checked us in. He offered us a sandwich, which took us both by surprise so we said yes to see what it was all about and about 5 minutes later here he comes with 2 fresh sandwiches. It was so nice after traveling to get there to have a quick bite to eat. He was able to give us a ton of recommendations and was super friendly each time we saw him afterwards. The rest of the staff was equally as friendly, even including the cleaning staff who said hello and good morning to me each day. The fact that they provided breakfast, lunch and dinner made the room rate even more appealing. We didn't have to spend a dime on food outside the hotel and as you may know, food in Oslo is not cheap! Just keep in mind though, when they say waffles for lunch, they mean make your own crepes, not American style waffles.I had no complaints about this hotel and would certainly visit again.
