“Perfect”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

A perfect place to relax for couples (romantic), familly or friends.
Great food and atmosphere.

The "frozen" people that are returning from the city will find a lot of heat not only from the fireplace that is working all the time.

Close to the opera house, train station and city center.

A very comfortable hotel, centrally located, so easy walking distance to and from the station. It was good value, especially for a city hotel. The staff were friendly. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and the addition of the complimentary (and equally delicious) evening buffet was excellent! This was a major advantage.

The Clarion Hotel on Skippergata is a centrally located hotel in Oslo. The staff at reception was friendly, helpful and professional. The single room (803) I was allocated, was on the small side, but had a bed and a desk. More than enough for a city hotel, since you will only use the room to sleep in. The price for the room was high (average 980 Kronor or €120 a night), but the room rate included breakfast, supper (pancakes) and a simple evening meal. And there was free coffee and tea throughout the day. And with the outrageous prices restaurants charge in Oslo, the inclusion of meals in the room rate is a nice touch. Shame that the expensive beer wasn't included as well, but then the roomrate would probably have gone sky-high. There is a small gym and sauna in the basement and there is free wifi throughout the hotel. The hotel is in an area where there are a lot of working girls at night asking you if you want some company for the night. But they were not persistent if you declined their kind offers. The only real point of criticism is the standard of cleaning. Upon my arrival the carpet in my room was dirty (hairs of a previous occupant an very dusty). The next day, I noticed that the dirt was still there after a visit from housekeeping. Only the bed had been made. Only after I informed reception, the some vacuuming was done. The room had a lovely balcony, but birds also used this as a toilet. I live near the sea and I know that seagulls and pigeons like doing their business on balconies. You have to remove their presents immediately, otherwise the dried poo will be hard to remove. The balcony hadn't been cleaned for a long time, because there were bird-droppings everywhere. Furthermore, in the gravel there were cigarette butts from previous tenants who obviously did'n know how to use the ashtray on the outside table provided by the hotel. But those butts should have been removed before my arrival. And after the second night of my stay, in the morning I noticed some bed bugs on the sheets. I did send them to bed bug heaven immediately, but unfortunately I had already received eight bites by then that are still itching while I write this review. Now with travelling becoming more frequent in this world, bed bugs are becoming a serious problem in even five star hotels these days. I was reminded the hard way to always check the sheets before going to bed. So, overall a pleasant stay, but I would have rated the hotel higher if the standard of cleaning had lived up to the standard in the rest of the hotel.

Our room is comfortable and the hotel is in a very convenient location for exploring Oslo. The shower is a little cramped but works well. Breakfast was decent. Feels like an okay value, especially considering how expensive Oslo is.

Hi,
Thank you for taking your time out of a busy day to review us at tripadvisor.
For your next stay, if you think the bathroom was a bit cramped. The superior and deluxe room both has bigger bath, for just 300,- NOK and 400,- Nok more a night.

Hope you come back and visit!

Wow! What a great city, it had everything we wanted (history, culture, art, architecture...) and more! The visit was very special, unforgettable, and the cherry on top was the Clarion Collection Hotel Bastion. Clean, comfortable and great friendly helpful staff. With great buffet breakfast, free pancakes in the afternoon and a fantastic free buffet in the evenings! It was so much better than we could have expected, we will definitely be back! Other hotels have a thing or two to learn from this great hotel!

The only negative aspects of the hotel were the slow elevator, and no super-close parking nearby, and since these are not especially significant, I gave a good score. All the rest was positive, good room rate, friendly staff, modern rooms, fast internet, and a good location, nearby the main shopping street, and close to the Opera theatre. In the late afternoon you can make your own pancakes for free, and coffee is for free the entire day, and the dinner, though minimal and buffet style, is included in the price as well. I liked Oslo, and when I return, I will go back to this hotel.
