Good hotel option in the center of Oslo (next to the Royal Palace). Everything in the center can be done by walking, everything else is easily done from the National Theater station (train+subway). Breakfast is good and staff is helpful. Rooms are comfortable and size is okay. The only downside is the bathroom: small and shower in open, so everything... More

Nothing fancy. Rooms were clean, modern and reasonably spacious. The beds were ok, although the sheets were of poor quality and must have been made of polyester, because it was impossible to be covered up for longer than half an hour as you'd begin to sweat etc. There is no ventilation in the room, and just a radiant heater, so...

Very clean hotel. Room on the 7th floor was very quiet. It had small balcony, facing the Royal Palace (at distance). Great breakfast buffet. The hotel is located 5 min from Metro and Flytoget (direct train to airport). And 2 min to tram line (just around the corner). Walking distance to the harbour area and commercial streets.
