Stayed here for 3 nights in late August. Magic Xhibition is conveniently located within a 5-10 minutes stroll to fish market, wharf, tourist information and Mt Floyen Funcular; there is a super market in the basement of the building. Since the Smastrandgaten bus stop is right outside the building, one can catch the M2 bus to Ulriken lower cable car station here. The desk lamp base with a USB port is a nice touch; one could still charge a phone via USB.
As other reviewers has pointed out: finding the check-in desk takes some patience and the lack of shower curtain needs some getting use to; to be fair, shower enclosure without door seems to be a common occurrence in this part of Europe, I found. Our friends' room turned out has no place to hang clothes and we were glad the front desk staff was able to switch them to a larger room upon request. Finally, there is no kettle in the room; the front desk was able to find one for us at the end of the second day. The friendly staff did provide us with hot water from the espresso machine in a double foam cups to take back to the room; however, navigating a cup of very hot water through escalator and elevator can be hazardous. Considering their price competitiveness, I am willing to overlook some minor inconveniences.More
