Gaustad Hotell

Reviewed 20 July 2014

People are often scared of Oslo's high prices, but at 60 euros per night (breakfast included!) this hotel is rather affordable. Literally situated right next to the tram station, you can get to the city center in 15 minutes or less. The breakfast is very good, with a lot of different things to choose from. They also serve lunch and dinner at good prices. The rooms aren't very modern, but that shouldn't bother you if you came to explore the city. It has free wifi, but it works better in certain areas of the hotel. Next time I'm in Oslo, I will definitely stay here again.

Clean and convenient hotel With excellent communications by both tram and underground to the city center. The hotel lacks all sorts of charm, luxury or romantic qualities but you get what you pay for. (The bathroom was big enough to fit an infant bed.)

At 68 Euros per night this is one affordable hotel in Oslo. That includes a nice room and breakfast. The room has a big bed, tv, small fridge and usual amenities. Now this is not a luxury, leisure or holiday kind of hotel. So the rooms are not fancy but everything is adequate.

The breakfast as as good as any other hotel. But its good and you wont be disappointed. The restaurant also serves lunch.

Tram 17 and 18 stops right at the door step of the hotel. Metro station Gaustad is about 5 min walk from the hotel.

If I come back to Oslo, I will stay here again.

Gaustad Hotell's front door is about 10 metres from the 17/18 trikk (tram) terminus so it's very easy to travel into Oslo city centre and you won't miss the stop on the way back. As other reviewers have said this isn't a luxury hotel and it's part of the Rikshospitalet complex. Rooms are functional and the beds are comfortable. The overnight rate I had included a self-service breakfast.

I accessed the hotel by car and although the turn off the motorway is well signposted it's more difficult when you actually get to the Rikshospitalet site. The hotel's address is Sognsvannsveien but it's actually just to the left of the piazza in front of the main hospital entrance. It's also about 500m back to the multi-level car park.

19 min to the centre of Oslo, the tram stops in front of the door, no 17 and 18. Very noisy but clean rooms. The breakfast is ok, they even have rice milk for vegans. Many customers are (family of) patients of the hospital next door.
