I booked this hotel since it was in the city center and it was a great deal. Super location with 1min walks into the center and proper clean rooms! Liked the Breakfast a lot! Next time I am coming solo again I will book it again.

What a little gem right in the middle of the city. Close to everything from Karl Johans gate to the Opera to the modern art museum, to the Nobel Prize museum. We were greeted by a lovely Geir who accommodated our request to have a "cool" room. We were lucky to face the street and be able to open the...

Almost all the rooms in this hotel open into a courtyard with a glass roof. This really keeps it from feeling claustrophobic. A wonder buffet breakfast is served every morning in the courtyard-a real savings in Oslo since it's included. The location is wonderful-2 blocks from the harbor and 1 block from the main shopping/restaurant street, close to transportation. Our...

Copenhagen Region, Denmark
Reviewed 9 February 2017

The hotel is worn and generally need an overhaul. The room was small. The breakfast room was ridiculously cold, and everyone had to wear coats. Construction workers started drilling at 7 in the morning, so don't plan on sleeping late. The location is great and the price was fair, but this doesn't really offset the general impression of price/performance.
