I stayed for two nights in this hotel. The location is perfect because it is central, within walking distance from the central train station (I took the airport train (flytoget) to there from Gardemoen, which I highly recommend), and near Karl Johans gade, the main street of Oslo. Royal palace, Grand Cafe (were Ibsen used to have lunch every day),... More

Bad light and electricity system in the room. Training equipment not set-up correctly. Room conditioning system too loud (first room) Radiator behind curtain - well, useless. Had to change room - reception did a good job.

Stayed 2 nights. Its a very popular center located business hotel, always crowded. This time I got an old room, with a teared down bathroom. The contrast is huge compared with the newer rooms in this hotel. You really never know what you get. I think the room was icecold, not able to adjust it. The knob for heating did... More

The clarion is a really Nice hotel to be in a central spot in Oslo. Thereby the hotel has Nice features: good and very diverse breakfast, Nice swimming pool and sport facilities, and good reception staff. Only thing is that the rooms are a bit outdated and can be a bit noisy from the street sounds.

Location - perfect. Staff - not so much. First night we arrived and there was a loud fan in the bathroom that would not stop working. The manager came into our room, looked at it and said nothing he could do. He did not provide a single solution and said himself that this is not a noce building nor a... More

The hotel has a central atrium where breakfast is served and some hotel rooms face into this space. Others face out to the street. My room was a double bed facing the street and it was very small with little room for much else. Bathroom ok and everything worked apart from on the first night when the heating did not.... More
