This hotel had an awesome location and was close to many sights. It is quite far from the airport but I think that most of the town is far from the airport. We had a room on the 7th floor which was tucked right under the stairs leading to the spa and pool. Although it was a nice room, we...

We was welcomed by the lovely and caring receptionist from Spain originally. She chatted with us friendly like an old friend. Of course, location is centered where surrounded with cultural events, shopping outlets and entertainments. We had 2 nights stay at the hotel with breakfast included. We highly recommended you included breakfast for your booking. The breakfast is great and...

Great hotel with a very nice bar. Breakfast was awesome and the rooms very comfortable. Nevertheless at first it seemed all very old style, which is not mine, but all (rooms, bar, restaurant,cafe) have many modern elements and makes it a very nice place to be.

After redecorating, the place look fabulous. One of the grand old hotels of Oslo. Good service, nice room, excellent breakfast. In my opinion the higher room are less noisy. Very centrally located, all the usual extras. Would I stay again, definitely.
