Friendly hotel

The hotel was centrally located and ideal for shopping sight-seeing etc. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. A good breakfast buffet selection. Our room was a little small with a slightly annoying two steps in the middle of the room leading from the bed area to the bathroom.but that was only a minor problem. For what we paid, and considering the location, it was good value

Excellent Hotel

Cracking hotel located smack in the middle of Oslo. Bit awkward to find using sat nav as lots of roads closed due to road works, but that wasn't the hotels fault. Staff in the hotel were extremely helpful and a credit to the hotel. Breakfast was very pleasant too. Would use this hotal again for future trips to norway.

Great hotel if you're on a budget

Fair standard on the rooms. Everything in the room is clean and works. OK breakfast and helpful staff. Located on Karl Johan, next to the parlament it's easy to find if you're not familiar with the city. Only drawbacks are a strange smell in the lobby and a below average WIFI-access

Great location - but a bit noisy

I was put in a room on the second floor right above the pub. The room facing the side street is quite noisy as all the traffic is directed that way. No hotel bar, but situated in a lively area. Staff was great and helpful

Excellent location and breakfast

I can only say good things about our stay. Breakfast was excellent. Many choices. Room was confortable. We walked to every turist spot in Oslo. We were there on Friday and Saturday nights. Yes, the downstairs music was very very loud. Our room was in the front. It really did not bothers us much but we are young too !

Location is the only highlight

There are a lot of bad single rooms (had to swap twice). The elevator broke twice during my 2 night stay. The breakfast room has no windows and is very small and claustrophobic. My room card did not work twice, and they had to re activate it. It was hard for people to call in to me in the hotel. The rooms had no little soaps and such and no kettle (but I did get one when I asked for it). The entrance and facade looks good though (it's an old building). And the location is good.

Great hotel

Room was very large and very clean. Staff helpful and pleasant. Location was great. Breakfast was light with no bacon, sausage, hashbrowns but they did have an assortment of fruit, cereal, cold meats and cheese. All round we enjoyed ourselves. :)
