Old style grand hotel. Nice welcome , good sized room . It's dated but charming. Bar & breakfast room especially stylish & comfortable . A nice change from corporate conformity. First choice in Oslo , and it comes at an OK price.

The hotel is huge and rooms are clean. TV is very big. Nevertheless, heating is loud, no main switch for all lights, and the gym is very very small. Location is great and staff very friendly and helpful.

A great place for the business or pleasure traveler. I can’t recommend this hotel more highly. 1. The staff were superb. They all spoke fluent English and were welcoming. When I arrived, I was given a free upgrade to a suite for no reason (it was off-season, so I imagine they had the capacity). The gesture was wonderful. 2. The...

This is a hotel with tons of charm and style without being pretentious. I first had a superior room that had not been renovated. During the second part of my stay, I had a standard room that clearly had been modernized. Both rooms were very clean and quiet. Excellent beds, and no floppy pillows that you will find in hotels...

The room is pretty standard by European standards. The actual bar has great service and ambiance. The restaurant was OK although the service was less than tremendous. The lobby bar is pathetic. Not only is there no host around, but the service is truly abysmal. Two days in a row there was no host. Even the front desk people tried...

Slightly old fashioned hotel which is just what we like, rooms however were modern with all as you would expect. Staff superb, nothing too much trouble. Had afternoon tea in lobby area which was great. Had two evening meals in the restaurant, and both were superb. Very clever cooking using good local ingredients producing delicious gourmet dishes, highly recommend.

A top-notch hotel in central Oslo. Check-in, concierge and restaurant staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. I had a single room on the 5th floor; quite a small room, but not a problem as I was only staying for one night. The fitness room and spa/sauna looked excellent although I didn't have time to try them out.
