The hotel is conveniently located near main city attractions and public transportation. Room was spacious and confortable. Free of charge wi-fi available. Breakfast buffet is very complete, including vegetarian/vegan options. The staff is very helpfull and friendly.

I am sure this hotel has some nice rooms, and other reviews indicate so. But the room I got was not nice; it was only large enough to fit the single bed, and the desk was wall-mounted and collapsed, since it would block access to the bed if it was in the horizontal position. The duvet was made of synthetic...

Nice location. Close to everything. Easy check-in and a really comfortable and good-looking hotelroom. The breakfast was decent as well, with regular norwegian food along with some international sweets/cakes. Only thing that makes this review only get a 4 star and not a 5 is the fact that it was not possible for me to check out an hour later....

This hotel was a breath of fresh air for us (we had just come from a really small basic hotel in Copenhagen). Rooms were nicely decorated and modern. Only fault with the rooms was there was no kettle or tea coffee in the room. The breakfast was great! So much choice. On weekends breakfast runs till 11 which is bliss....

We spent one night in here on a weekend. Staff was friendly and helpful as we arrived very late. We got a late check out due to our late arrival with no extra cost. The breakfast buffet was massive and amazingly delicious. Many different kinds of fruits, pastries, home made fresh breads, smoothies, juices and fruit juice shots, warm foods,...

An ideal place to spend a long weekend in Oslo. This hotel is ideally located for access to most of the major attractions of Oslo. The hotel was friendly and helpful, and always found a way of addressing any questions we had, nothing was too much trouble, and was dealt with by happy staff. The breakfast here is truly wonderful...

If you need a hotel room with all the necessary - and a great breakfast - go for this one. Only downside: only one treadmill and queue in the gym room in the morning. Five minutes downhill walk to Karl Johan.
