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.
Best Western hotel is not a luxury vacation hotel, but is a well priced, comfortable business hotel. In that light, please do not expect food to be delivered to your room, or laundry either. They have a great restaurant on the ground floor, free-to-use washing machines for your clothes. If you expect twice a day room cleaning, then you are in the wrong hotel, but for generally efficient hotel, you are in the right place!
I stayed two night on a work trip: my room was comfortable and also the bathroom. Fornitures were new, everithing clean. No closet, so this kind of room is not good for a long stay, perfect for a short work trip, but I've seen the hotels has bigger room and also apartments. Good breakfast with plenty of choiche. The restaurant has been renewed and is more "warm" looking than the pictures here on tripadvisor dated 2015. The hotel is very near to the metro stop of Tøyen that is two stops from the city center.
This Hotel in General was nice cleaned and special almost all the reception people was helfull and nice , the breakfast was also all you need to eat. The room that I was was nice and big and clean all the time.
We stayed at this hotel in February.2017. Well, first thing that people should know about this hotel is that it is really - apartment establishment and not conventional hotel. This is to say that, if You really want a cheap place to stay - then this is definitely the spot. The rooms are quite affordable and if You buy and prepare your own food, you will get below the budget (comparing with other hotels). The room was on first floor and had no view (apart from the view on the sidewalk below). Downside was that it had no carpets but just plain marble(looking) tiles that gave it somewhat uncomfortable tone. I'm guessing this is quite suitable for cleaning and maintenance, but it downgrades the room comfort down to the level of a prison cell. The room had washing machine, but no means to dry the laundry. Otherwise, the bathroom was clean and quite cozy. There were many broken things in the room that required repairs (coat hanging cabinet was not fixed to the wall and threatened to capsize at any given moment, the extra bed was threatening to collapse down on the luggage and the table, the foldable table underneath the TV-set was broken). All in all, the room was not safe for minors because of all these things and because most of the furniture had plain sharp edges, but for an adult - it was OK. The cleaning service was irregular and not available on weekend, but in general - it was OK. The room was cleaned and the sheets and towels were changed on regular basis. However, due to winter season and a lot of snow outside, a lot of dirt accumulated on the tiled floor so, again, either a carpet or more regular cleaning would help. The breakfast was ridiculously expensive at the time (150 NOK per person) and getting to know that you can get really nice coffee and breakfast to your liking at the bakery (literally) 30 meters away, for half a price - made me scoff at this service a bit. Anyhow, we've used it once and it was fantastic. But nevertheless - expensive. However, the hotel restaurant dubbed as somewhat Mexican restaurant during the evening hours and, although being somewhat pricey, we quite enjoyed our meal there. Both for quality, service and the ambient. That is somewhat I could recommend (apart for the price). The location of the hotel was indeed - good. The subway station was some 50-60 meters away and in matter of minutes, we would find ourselves in the dead center of Oslo (Central Railway Station). Also, as a +, there were Munch gallery and the botanical gardens nearby (no subway was necessary for that), but being winter season and somewhat off the schedule, we did not go there. Bottom line: the location is - very good. Now, would I recommend and choose this hotel for a private trip. To a student - definitely, but to a family - I'm afraid not. However, would I mind sleeping here again if everything else was booked or just over my budget - Yes, without a second thought.
I stayed just the one night here but was impressed. I got a great deal on the hotel as well which was why i picked it but would stay again regardless. Although the room was small, it was fine for my trip (business). Versus a BW in the UK and others i have stayed in across the Nordics, this was the best so far. Breakfast was also good. A good selection on offer with hot and cold options. The staff were also very friendly and helpful. I didnt arrive until about 1AM either so thought i might have issues getting in or checked-in but there was someone on the best and the doors were open, so it was quick and easy and was in the room within 5 mins which was just what i needed at that time.
A simple hotel. Clean and friendly staff. Some thing I didn't like was: 1. The breakfast: almost nothing to eat if you are a vegetarian 2. The fire alarm woke me up at 6.30, there was no fire. 3. The hotel says that they care about the environment, but their soaps contain palm oil...
We were searching for a place in Oslo to stay overnight and found this nice hotel that was very usefully located, close to the Central Station. We arrived, it was no problem to drop a bag in a locked room while our room was being prepared, there was well-functioning WiFi, it was clean, everything worked. The only unpleasant thing was an alarm clock set to 6AM by someone else than us, plus the alarm clock was going one hour in advance so it woke us up 5AM haha. But I guess that's not hotel staff's fault ;)
