Best location, best breakfast, great staff, great wifi, great just great, more characters

Very clean and comfortable room, although very small. The staff is VERY friendly and helpful. The location next to the central railway station is terrific, as we needed to catch a train from Oslo. For such a convenient location in Oslo Centre, the price was reasonable. The free breakfast is EXCELLENT, with a huge range of choices.

The hotel is connected to Byporten shopping center and Oslo central station. It is a convenient spot for catching busses or trams to most sites in Oslo.

great location both to airport with train and to sights in downtown. Very small but nice and recently updated room, very quiet. Would stay again.

This hotel was right next to the train station which was very convenient for us arriving by train. A little noisy and the room was too warm, but everything else was a great deal for the price. The breakfast was great!

Hotel is average at best. Room was not ready when we arrived. Staff was accommodating to the best of their ability. SUPER easy access to all public transportation!

Hotel was under construction, but super convenient with close proximity to OSL. Would stay there again.

The hotel location is very central right outside the train station and in the center of Oslo. Walking distance to all the tourist attractions, and adjacent to a mall. The reception staff is very friendly, polite, and helpful. The room was small but sufficient for a short stay of no more than a few days. The breakfast that is included in the room price is very good, tasty, and being served at a restaurant across the lobby from the hotel. Definitely stay there again when in Oslo.

Great location attached to train station perfect for making early morning trains. Walking distance to all the Oslo attractions. GREAT FREE breakfast

Location in a mall attached to the central station made this a good choice for one night in Oslo. Breakfast at the adjacent restaurant offered various choices. Room was not large or elegant, more of a basic, business traveler type accommodation.

Average hotel in practical location. Worth if a good price deal.

While it was a bit confusing to locate the hotel by walking through a shopping center, the location couldn't be better! Right outside the door is the major tourist thoroughfare and easy access to trains, buses, and trams. Everything is super expensive in Oslo, so, while not inexpensive, the location and value was excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and adequate for three. Breakfast at the Egon was excellent.

Could not be more conveniently situated, but you have to look hard for it as the entrance is in the shopping mall of the central train station. Breakfast was not included. Rooms were spacious. A great jumping off place for sightseeing as the tram is right outside.

We used the hotel as a base for side trips so having the train and tram close by was very helpful. We could have used a car rental dealership close by. Even though the trains, trams, and buses were practically right outside our window, the sound was not a problem.

We were only in Oslo 1 night, so it wasn't that big a deal that the bed was a double, but there was only single bedding on it . . . one pillow, one twin blanket. we found another pillow in the closet, but the additional comforter was dirty & didn't have a duvet on it. there was also only one towel in the bathroom. I guess 'twin' means different things in different countries -- I thought we were getting twin beds . . .

We arrived by traini from the airport. Signage from the main train terminal was not sufficient to guide us to the hotel. We had to ask directions. Once at the hotel, everything was fine. We enjoyed our room's location and requested the same room for our return visit to Oslo. The breakfasts provided were good, but on our first trip to the dining area, we didn't find the second floor site for breakfast. Again, we had to ask. On other trips, we knew where to go and enjoyed the wide variety of offerings

Coming in from the airport one day and leaving by train the next day, the Station Hotel was perfect. The proximity to money exchange and ticket information was also helpful. THe breakfast was all that could be asked for
