Small, noisy room

Friendly and welcoming staff but poor bedroom. Very small room, with small single bed. Worst of all - although my room was on the 3rd floor, it seemed to be situated above a nightclub - loud music playing until 2am and impossible to sleep. Do not stay here if you want to guarantee a good, comfortable and quiet nights sleep.

Small Room

Centrally located right on Karl Johans Gatan, you cannot beat the location. EVerything and anything is steps away from the hotel. But the room was tiny, enough for the KIng bed, which was really just 2 double beds put together. Besides that there was a bathroom that you had to take 2 steps up/ Room was clean, the view unfortunately was nopt to the street but faced other rooms. The elevator was tiny as well, they did offer free tea or coffee in the parlor rooms on each floor though. Customer service was nice. If you can get a bigger room i would recommend.

family holiday

We had never stayed at this hotel before but on previous trips to Norway we had stayed at the Grand Hotel next door. We found this hotel was just as good from the fantastic buffet breakfast to the friendly and helpful staff would most certainly stay again.

Location, location, location!

We stayed for one night. Staff was very helpful. We had so much luggage they gave us an extra large room. They also stored our luggage for 9 hours the next day before we left town. I traveled with my mother and my teenage daughter and her friend. Not manyl hotels in Norway would allow 4 people in one room. No extra hidden charges, which many other hotels had. Delicious breakfast and great location in the middle of all the sightseeing, shops and restaurants. Very cosmopolitan city. Lots of outdoor restaurants. This may be a 3 star, but it has all you really need. Just bring your own toiletries. I would stay there again.

You don't need a car in Oslo, lots of public transportation. The roads in Oslo are hard to navigate. Tunnels all over. Parking also pricy in town.
