          Hi we booked a family room in June for three adults. Are your sofa beds are comfortable enough for an adult? Thank you.

          Hi Jorge, thank you for your question. Our sofabeds are 140cm and comfortable for adults, I have slept in it myself once to make sure that it is suitable for adults. Best regards, Therese Fredriksson, General Manager

          Hi We arrive to Oslo soon. We will arrive at Rygge airport at night next week and will be getting the express coach to the central bus terminal at 11:45pm. I assume that we will arrive at the central bus station at 12:45am. Is it safe to walk through the city with our suitcase from the station to the hotel this late at night? Or should we look for alternative travel?
