Good location and very comfortable!

The room was comfortable, the included breakfast had lots of options and had an expresso machine so we had great coffee. They would get my husband ice when he wanted it, which is hard to find in Europe. We had room service which was quick and the food was good. We were there for 4 nights and it was a nice ending to our three weeks' abroad.

Oslo lodging

The hotel is excellently located, only 800 meters from the Oslo S main train station and close to many attractions and the metro. The rooms are small but adequately appointed but lighting is subpar. There is a writing desk and two upright chairs and an armoire but no closet, robes or slippers. There was construction on my floor creating dust and chaos in the halls so sleeping past 7am was not possible. (I spent the end of my trip here and was hoping to start re-acclimating to my native time zone). The staff was nice and the food was good. The spa was the outstanding part of the experience and the therapist was terrific. (I had a deep tissue massage and facial). Overall my stay was OK.

Good experience overall

A classic British hotel. Only issue was that to reach the gym, you had to go to the third floor, then find a door leading to a stairway and walk three floors down.

Friends sightseeing trip

A gorgeous hotel, with extremely helpful staff. The young man at reception came outside to show us where the airport bus stopped. Breakfast was super, with a wide range of foods to choose from. Our room was very clean, however it did tend to get very warm. The hotel's location is superb!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Holmenkollen Ski Jump is a must as the views are stunning. The Sculpture Park is very beautiful as well - a great place for walking, cycling, a picnic or BBQ.

Quietest hotel ever!

We arrived on Saturday midnight when a party was in full swing, and could be heard in the stairwells and corridor. However, not a peep was heard in the room. The other guests were either all amazingly quiet and considerate of others (not talking in the corridor / flushing loos late etc.) we were also unable to hear them from our room. Beds were comfy and duvets hot - I would have liked a sheet and blanket being a hot sleeper. The only thing that made a noise was the air con which we could not turn completely off, although it didn't seem to run in the middle of the night anyway - 1-7am? Breakfasts were fantastic. Only small thing as Brits we would have liked some hot milk to go with the strong coffee. The hotel is lovely and central and near 2 tram stops (didn't get used to bus routes). Get an Oslo Pass! We saved hundreds of kroners on the 72 hour pass!!!

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Oslo sweater shop beats other prices, which are then matched by other outlets. Also Oslo pass for sightseeing and transport.

Extremely nice for the price

Oslo is extraordinarily expensive. This hotel is not. Because of that, I was expecting this hotel to be middle of the road. It is, in fact, really nice. My room was small but very comfortable. The bathroom was nice as well - only complaint is the fluorescent lighting in the bathroom makes it look cheap. It was very quiet - I was never woken up by another guest, housekeepers in the hallway, etc. The complimentary breakfast buffet is really good as well - lots of fresh foods to choose from.
