Best Western Kampen Hotell4.0 out of 5.0

And that statement is absolutely correct. The hotel has a nice fresh first impression, but the room is way to hot and I had really trouble sleeping. Also, the bed was pretty hard. The room was clean, but, had a harsch smell of chemicals.
On a recent visit to Oslo, the 3 of us, Mom, Dad, and 21-year old daughter stayed at the Best Western Kampen Hotel. Very disappointing. The rooms were very awkward to get to with our luggage ... up and down various industrial type outside ramps and inside staircases (no elevators) ... the curtains were tattered and didn't close properly ... the windows didn't close properly ... sound insulation was abysmal ... it was very noisy due to traffic all nights long along the busy thoroughfare just outside. On-site restaurant is dingy and not welcoming. On site parking turned out to cost about Euro 20/day. Overall experience, 2 out of 10. We wouldn't go back.
This property is well located with access to the city underground a couple of minutes walk away. The Reception staff were amiable & helpful and the breakfast team's manager was very efficient. We had a room at the back of the hotel away from the road - it was clean but obviously had thin walls! It would be difficult to swing a cat or, indeed, a Manx kitten, in the small room but it was adequate. There was a rattan style furnished large, communal terrace outside the room (not just an ashtray!) and if that was occupied by revellers then it would be (probably) unbearable; it rained so thankfully no-one was literally outside our room, every cloud and all that! On site parking is available but MUST be booked as there are only relatively few spaces. Due to the available facilities and the location we'd probably use Best Western Kampen Hotell again but certainly avoid the floor and rooms with the outside terrace the other side of the window.
Cheapest place we found to stay. The area is a business/ethnic area. Shops and restaurants nearby and easily accessible to the metro which is a 5 min walk away. Very good location. Facilities to cook in the apartments and nice big rooms. Plenty of space for 3 of us to stay. Good choice!
This hotel is clean, and well located close to several bus stops (20 and 60) and the metro station Toyen. Close to it a small place with several restaurants and a shopping mall (Kiwi) with cheap prices. The room is large enough for a single person or a couple, may be not for a small family (for instance no many spaces for dresses). TV have international channels in English, French, German (using the analogical mode) However we were not very satisfied with the room. Room 2001B had a leaking shower. Hopefully the girl at the reception desk was helpful and gave us enough towels to dry the floor. Also the magnetic card stop working after a while, even if we kept them apart from our mobile phone as been told. Also the door doesn't have a lock inside, and it happened that several people knocked the door and enter even if we said we did not want to be disturbed. When we arrived our room was not clean and later in our trip (it was Sunday ), again the cleaning lady did not clean our room until late in the day. However the lobby is quite cosy, with a nice restaurant and a little coil fire in the middle. Employees in the lobby are quite helpful and we were kindly welcomed.
Had a Great experience with best western in the junior suite. Clean and modern rooms. Hotel staff was helpful and gave Good service. Overall a premium experience at an Good price :) I would recomend this hotel to annyone staying in oslo. Hotel is a little bit from the oslo centrum. But 100-200 meters to the metro, with metros Going every 2 minutes made IT perfect
As visitors to Norway will know, Norway is, for most visitors, an expensive country and is a place where it is quite easy to pay eye-watering prices for hotels, drinks, food etc. However, if you are willing to be flexible and not too fussy, then you can find things at a more reasonable price like this hotel - the Best Western Kampen Hotel. The hotel is well-situated near the centre of Oslo and is comparatively reasonably priced. Rooms - the rooms are not all laid out like a normal hotel. Some rooms are normal, just like a regular hotel. However, some rooms seem to be part of a small apartment which contains 2 or more rooms. You enter your door by doing into the relevant apartment number and then into your actual room. Each apartment includes a shared small kitchen with some appliances. Once you go into your own individually-locked room, things are more normal. You have a door to your apartment and your own key. In the room there is a comfortable bed, good heating, en-suite bathroom and TV just like you would expect. The TV channels are very restricted so don't expect a wide range of multi-lingual programming. The room is nice and clean and the bed and furnishings are adequate and comfortable. The bathroom is well-equipped and clean. My particular room suffered from noise from outside the hotel but it is, after all, a budget hotel in a central area. Breakfast - is included in the price for all residents and is excellent. A really nice and wide range of nice food, presented in a buffet, and there should be something for everyone's taste. Travel - this is a really easy hotel to get to from the Oslo airport. Take the Flytoget airport express train from the airport to Oslo Central Station - from memory this takes about 35 minutes or so. Then from Oslo Central Station you could take a short taxi ride to the hotel or you could take a Metro/Underground train for a few stops to Tøyen Station. The hotel is just round the corner from Tøyen Station. Do not, whatever you do, take the taxi from Oslo Airport as this could cost you an outrageous amount of money. If you must take a taxi from Oslo Airport then make sure you pre-agree to price for this. Otherwise your taxi journey will be charged by the meter and you will be charged a fare a lot more than your worst nightmare. My strong recommendation is to use the Flytoget airport express train. All in all, a convenient and well-priced budget hotel in a handy location. I must also give a thank-you to the friendly staff at the hotel who were great.
We stayed at this hotel in March 2017. It was excellent price for the money what we payed for. Room was clean with really nice fittings, only downside was no balcony and even the large "balcony windows" opened nowhere. Exactly nowhere, there was no rail or anything which is very dangerous. Room was above the entrance. When we booked the room through Expedia we thought the room has a little kitchenette but it was not. Although we had a lovely time there, special thanks to the housekeeper woman who made our room spotlessly every day, and provided to me more milk powder :) for my coffee. The hotel is in very good location, easily walkable to the Oslo centre station, about 15 minutes, and 5 minutes away shop, bakery and some pubs. Be aware about there very strict alcohol policy, you can buy beer weekdays until 8 pm, on Saturdays until 6 pm, and no alcohol on Sundays apart from pubs and restaurants which is very pricy. Also any spirits or wines can be bought in special shops. We took a boat to see the fjords, only can recommend, and don't miss the holmenkollen :). Regards
Stayed in this hotel when we arrived in Oslo and was in an older part of the hotel and wasn't very impressed. However on our return to the hotel we were in the more modern comfortable room. The hotel is near Tøyen station so is convenient for going into the city and the local shops were good.
This hotel is very basic in all sense of the word. Rooms are very small with no spare room for even the luggage. Breakfast is average but has the basic variety of food. The walls have poor noise insulation and your neighbours are noisy, it is rather unpleasant. The area has some food outlets, Turkish, Thai and Norwegian but that's it. Token is not too far from the city and one can walk to the city if you don't mind a 20-min walk; otherwise the metro station is very close and frequency is high.
