This being a '' budget' hotel , by norvegian standards, one does not expect real luxury. It is,though, a nice hotel, in the center of Oslo, with comfortable, big rooms, impecable personel and good breakfast. The pedestrian street in front of it ,is noisy( or : alive) but I don't think it is a major problem. There are two 7-11...

Ok hotel but nothing special about it. Breakfast was good, but not very big. The food was not marked with any names, so it was hard for one of my associates with allergies to know what to eat. The service was ok too. Nothing to point a finger at, but it seems to me that the people working at the...

We stayed in this hotel for three nights and as this was our first visit to Oslo we didn't know what to expect. We found the staff helpful and polite. The room was exactly what we expected. The negatives were no tea and coffee making facilities and the room was so hot hence we had to open the windows which...

Living in Norway, fairly regular visits to Oslo, we kinda knew what we were in for booking at this hotel. The hotel is situated on a pedestrian street with bars in close vicinity, so yes; there will be music and noises in weekends. If you're a light sleeper, don't book in (any) city center just to complain afterwards. We had...

Staff was very unpleasant and rude. We asked for a baby cot two different clerks and they refused to provide with various excuses. Sleeping there on a saturday night was impossible: loud music from the street all night long. As I said, there are better alternativas for a similar price. Try Comfort Hotel Boersparken, much newer, nicer, helpful staff and...

The hotel has a great central location, but the block on which it is located isn't a street I'd like to walk on by myself late at night. During the day and early evening is fine, but it gets shady during the late hours. The room itself is not wonderful -- extremely bare bones and considering how much we paid,...

One of the cheapest hotels in Oslo, but the area is horrible. A lot of bars and immigrants. The night is noisy for that reason try to get a room that looks at the back of the hotel. Avoid the street view. Other than that the staff was nice and there is free computer in lobby. Breakfast was good.

This is a very good hotel. Nice and central, clean and reasonably quiet considering its central location. Breakfast was excellent ! Everything one could wish for and as much as you like. Only two very minor points: reading lamp on the desk didn't work and the tea and coffee facilities were not topped up. Generally, an excellent hotel and recommended.

A nice and a modern hotel right in the middle of everything in Oslo. Short walking distance to most of the attractions with a parking garage just around the corner. Room was clean and everything, including the free wifi, worked just fine. Breakfast was a typical scandinavian one with something for everybody. The staff was helpful and spoke very good...

This hotel was recommended to me by a business colleague who is an Oslo resident on the basis of being a good value hotel that's fine for a couple of nights. This is exactly what it is. Location is fantastic, right in the middle of everything, but with this comes quite a lot of noise late at night. Room was...
