Good location in central Oslo. Hotel seems a bit tired, however some work was being carried out during my stay. One of the lifts wasn't working which meant incredibly long waits - easier and quicker to take the stairs. Buffet breakfast was nice in the central atrium.

Fast and efficient check in. Small, simple and clean rooms, perfect located. Good Breakfast. Nice staff. As there are refurbishing one elevator, it’s better to take the stairs to go down at the “peak hours” , much quicker.

A very functional hotel in an excellent location at the heart of Oslo. Clean and comfortable room. Good service and friendly staff. Satisfactory breakfast. Noise level is rather high if you are on the lower floors.

Stayed one night as an conference/seminar participant. Received an upgraded room which was very nice. Bed, pillow and duvet was of high standards.

We stayed here for three nights in September-14 and were very happy with the location. It's just a few steps to the Karl Johan and a couple of minutes walk to the harbour. Lifts went through renovations when we stayed, but it didn't affect us really. The room was not very big (two adults, two kids) but beds were comfortable... More

Stayed 1 night towards end of August 2014. Location is good – handy for National Theatre subway station and also for walking to Karl Johans gate and Aker Brygge.

Spent two nights at this hotel and would highly recommend it. Great staff always ready to lend a hand, and the location is perfect for exploring Oslo's city centre and harbour.

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The staff was helpful and friendly and it has a great location. It's only minutes from the harbor and the main shopping street and around the corner from the City Hall and a Seven Eleven (for late night cravings). In my opinion though, the hotel has a strange atmosphere. It feels dated although... More
