Small, clean room with everything you need for a short stay: big comfortable bed, desk and chair, bathroom with heated floor and shower. Hotel provides towels (1 for each person) and soap dispenser in the bathroom. There...

We flew into Oslo early and were scheduled to take the train to Bergen the next day. We booked Citybox because it was reasonably priced and 3 blocks from the train station. We walked from the station to the Citybox. First of all, we checked-in without speaking to or seeing a human. The machine for check-in resembled your basic ATM....

This budget hotel is an excellent place to stay if you need a clean place to sleep. Yes it is simple, but nice, yes there is no real front desk - but there is a person you can talk to during the day. When traveling on business I drop my bag off and sleep at my hotell room that is...

Fantastic location in central Oslo, only about 5 to 10mins walk to the central station, bus stop and main street. Oslo is very expensive so it was a good find in a very handy location. CityBox Hotel is all automated with hardly any staff. You need to take your pin number and credit card to check-in via a computer at...

Stayed here on a very brief work trip, and it was nice and cheap, very central, with well-designed, attractive rooms. Mine had a nice balcony with a view.

You only get what you pay for. A clean modern bed and bathroom. Good price! Located in the center of oslo, 5 minutes walk from the trainstation. This concept is excellent for a 2 or 3 days city trip. Lots of restaurants closeby.

My first self-service hotel. It's not necessary to speak with reception, it even absent :) For check-in, you just need to enter your reservation code and that's all. The same - to check-out. The room was very clean and cozy with ergonomic furniture. Also, you can use the microwave in the shared mini-kitchen

Automatic check-in vending machine. Nice little budget hotel, it is just about 5 minutes walk from Oslo Central Station, very convenient for everythings. Location is perfect and most of the important places are easily walkable. Good value of money, , stylish, clean and neat room. It was good enough travelling Norway as it is such an expansive country.

The rooms are small but they are very clean, modern and cosy. Great location- 5 minute walk to Oslo central station and the opera house. Good value for money. No tv or hairdryer in rooms. Self check-in feature was a first for me so really liked it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Citybox is a modern economy hotel with low prices. Our rooms are cheap because we keep our running expenses down while still offering our guests what they really need: a simple and stylish room with a delicate bath, a comfortable bed, a good chair, a desk and a place for hanging your clothes. Wireless broadband is available free of charge throughout the hotel. Citybox combines simplicity with comfort and low prices. The hotel is located in the centre of Oslo, 5 minutes walking from Oslo S, train staion. If you want to spend your money on something other than a minibar and room service, then Citybox is the place for you. Oslo is full of bars. Why do you need one in your hotel room? We recently teamed up with a cafe that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner for all our guests, and also provides a 10% discount for our guests. In addition they also cater to our meeting rooms. The cafe has a direct entrance from the hotel. ... more   less
