The location is perfect when arriving with the Airport Express Train and close to much of Oslo. The hotel is partly a building from the Olympics’ in 1952 and partly a new building. I got a room in the part from 52, however everything was nice and comfortable, including a very nice bathroom. The breakfast is nice however the breakfast... More

Very good hotel, we made a request for a room high up when booking, and got a room at the top floor (14th)! Gave us a very nice view over the city, the breakfast was great and our stay was very peaceful :)

First off, location is right across street from Central train station and walking distance to all main sights of Oslo. Just a wonderful place to access the city and then take train to next stop in Scandinanvia. I stayed in a suite. It felt like 1990s luxury.. all gold finishing. No outlets near the bed or anyplace convenient. Room was... More

I finally fell asleep at 1AM, but they were still singing, banging doors, laughing and going up and down the corridors on my floor. This seems to be a package group hotel. Lots of busses dropping people off and picking them up. The lobby is small and at times jammed with the groups. Very convenient location by the main train... More

I chose Hotel Royal Christiania for two reasons - there's a swimming pool (for the two preschoolers in our party) and it's a Nordic Choice hotel. I've found this chain to be very reliable over the years and this one didn't disappoint. The location is great. The main railway is diagonally across the street so it's easy access to other... More

This hotel is my favorite in Norway. Located close to Oslo S and downtown Oslo. Breakfast is excellent. Best in town. Did get a family room at floor 9. Great big room, and clean. Remember that you get a discount on your room if you are going to a concert. Fridays is located on the corner of the hotel

This is a nice hotel, centrally located near Oslo central station and the bus terminal. I don't like rooms that face inside atriums with windows that can't be opened, but I guees you can ask for other rooms upon making a reservation. The breakfast area is huge and even comes with a chef who makes omelettes. The room was very... More
