The staff at the front desk was excellent with information about Oslo and the hotel. We had a beautiful room with a view and a small Juliet Balcony. The breakfast was excellent with an interesting variety of foods. The room was spacious, with a large bathroom and the bed was excellent.

very nice hotel. Rooms a bit small, but bathroom was very well sized with plenty of counter space and a large bathtub. Liked the location. Very clean and surprisingly quiet--I did not hear any other guests from our room.

The Hotel is very good. Very nice breakfast, a regular Hotel room, modern, comfortable and clean. The staff, even though had Little contact with, was always friendly and helpfull. The Location is also a plus: Walking distance to the Train Station and City Center. I could complain about the Price, considering that with this amount you can book a five star Hotel anywhere else, but, everything in Norway is overpriced. So I am sure this is a very good place to stay in Oslo.

We stayed here 3 nights from 5-29 thru 6-2. Overall I'd say this is a good place to say even if there is a lot of graffiti and construction around the hotel. But the bus stop is about a block away so it made getting to the city center easy. The air conditioner wasn't exactly cold enough for me so I actually preferred to have the window open but the construction people start very early since at this time of year the sun barely goes down so it definitely woke me up and Friday night it was party time till about 2am and that made it a bit hard to fall/stay asleep. I wasn't too fond of the pad that was the mattress since it would shift whenever you turned on the bed. Also they do not have washcloths as many Europeon hotels seem not to have. Breakfast was the highlight for me. It catered to a lot of nationalities. Bacon, eggs, beans, deli meats cheeses yogurt, etc. were all delicious. If you are from the US Oslo is extremely expensvie-think $80 for lunch at TGIF. Ps-do not take cab from aiport to this hotel-$196- take the train to Oslo CentralStation then bus 54 and walk a block or so to hotel. So being that it so expensive in Oslo we felt since the breakfast was so good we saved probably $60 a day just on that ,and therefore this is a pretty good place to stay. And the staff was super nice and helpful in finding nearby places to eat.
