Good hotel, but nothing special

We had a good stay, the room was nice with a great view over the city to the fjord. The breakfast was good with a great variety and lots to eat. The negatives were that the beds were too soft/old and gave me backache and the swimming pool was freezing cold.

Great location, decent accomodations

The hotel was in a great location very near the Karl Johans Gate (main street of downtown Oslo) and even nearer to the Palace. There is a small park around the Palace that you can run in if you're interested. The room itself was a bit outdated but they were undergoing renovations of various floors of the hotel while we were there so I can only assume they hadn't gotten to our floor yet. We had a 19th floor room that overlooked the town and provided for a great view. There is also a bar on the top floor overlooking the Oslo fjord and the town. It offered great views assuming you were willing to pay $15 a beer (which is pretty standard anywhere you go in Norway!). The staff was excellent and nearly everyone spoke perfect English. They called cabs for us and arranged for the very convenient airport bus to pick us up at the front door. Oh and pay attention to the signs in the bathroom telling you to keep the door closed during a shower. The steam from our shower set off a silent fire alarm and warranted a visit from the manager. Apparently steam causes fires in Norway????

Great hotel in a convenient location

Beautiful hotel with a great breakfast included! We traveled with a senior citizen and this location was extremely convenient to the central city attractions and had a tram stop right outside. There were 3 of us in the room, which is oftentimes challenging in Europe, but this room was more than accommodating.

GREAT LOCATION AND BREAKFAST

Took the airport express bus directly from the sirport to the hotel. Very convenient door to door service. The hotel lobby has nice ambience with a cracking fireplace but the furniture is a bit worn, dirty, and shabby. I hate that! Check-in was smooth. The room was also shabby. The carpet had NOT been vacuumed and the bathroom was lacking in towels and shampoos. BUT, the impressive, large and abundant breakfast buffet made up for the unimpressive rooms. I probably would stay there again but know not to expect much as far as the actual room is concerned.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

IF you want internet access, walk a short walk down the street from the hotel to the 7-11 convenience store. They have internet access for 2 euros for one hour. The computers in the hotel lobby cost 50 cents per minute.
