We were a bit suspicious of this street as everyone had told us how great it was, so we had ideas of 'tourist central' like Oxford Street in London or Las Ramblas in Barcelona.However, we were pleasantly surprised by the lack of crowds.
If you are in Oslo Karl Johans Gate must be seen, Beautiful relaxing stroll down this pedestrian tree lined street is a must, Walk in the footsteps of Harry Hole.
Go all the way up to the Royal Palace and gardens.

I stayed here during the summer (late June). Two nights a week they had some sort of summer dance party going on. It was terribly noisy because of the constant thumping of the bass from the music. If I recall correctly, when the dance was on a week night, the music thumped until 11 pm. If it was a weekend night (Fri or Sat) it went until 1 am. The rest of the nights were quiet. I will not stay here again because it was not quiet those two nights each week. I was at this hotel 12 days so was able to 'enjoy' 4 nights of bass shaking the building.
To answer your other question, the hotel is very close to public transportation. I loved the convenience. They also had a good breakfast buffet that had a nice variety of foods.
