I prepaid the 2 night stay through finn.no. This was the only available in Oslo. I had to pay almost the double price of normal price for a mediocre hotel located far, far, far away from the city center. The hotels location is hopeless due to ongoing rebuild of the tram line and rerouted main road Holmenkollenveien. It took me an hour with bus or car to city center.
The room was spartan with a worn out bed and placed in the first floor with only heavy drapes (no inner curtain letting light through) in the window facing the lawn from where everyone could look into my room, and from the restaurant porch as well. Not good for privacy life, I think.
The breakfast was like the room, a buffee only the Spartans could find interesting, but it indeed had fresh and wam rolls (rundstykker).
When I checked out, they claimed to charge me for the room once more and to a higher price as well, claiming that my payment had been cancelled. It took me great deal of time and discussion with the front desk before the guy accepted my receipt.
What a stay. Never again, even with the best view of Oslo.
