Hotel with great character and location

Would recommend Sat, Dec 12, 2015
I really like this hotel. The breakfast is nice with good variety. The location is great. Close to offices for business, and great location for shopping. The only down side is that there isn't a gym to use. I have stayed at this hotel many times. The room during my most recent stay was a bit small - I am a thin person and I had to shower side ways to fit in. The room set up was strange too as it was hard to lie in bed and watch tv. But other rooms I have had weren't like that. It is good value.

Great Location

Would recommend Tue, Aug 4, 2015
The hotel location is the biggest asset for this hotel. It is on the main strip of Karl Johan Street, close to a variety of restaurants, train station, shopping and walking distance to the harbor. The hotel property is old and in need of an update. The amenities are scarce or non-existent. The hotel rooms can be very noisy if you open the windows as it is right on Karl Johan where all the restaurants are. We were there in June where the sun was out and so was everyone. Noise, however, is a small price to pay for the great location.

Small, noisy room

Would not recommend Sun, May 17, 2015
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

Would recommend Mon, Jan 5, 2015
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.

Shopping hint

You're on the main strip for shopping in Oslo.

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.
