    Lots of dust on room textiles included in high price. Only 3 towels for 4 people. Location is awesome though. Oslo is expensive city but should be possible to get more value for the money. Online check-in and check-out was promoted.

    Hi Jorge, thank you for your question. Our sofabeds are 140cm and comfortable for adults, I have slept in it myself once to make sure that it is suitable for adults. Best regards, Therese Fredriksson, General Manager
