Just a one night stay here but very impressed with the dinner and amazing breakfast included in our room rate. Walking distance to train station. We had a standard room which, obviously, was small but we needed nothing more for an overnight stay. Room was spotless.

The location is perfect for those who want to experience Oslo City Centre. Our room was stylishly decorated, the bed was perfect and everything was clean and crisp. I've tried quite a few hotell breakfasts: this was the best. Homely atmosphere and a large variety of healthy, tasty options. The little brownie piece was the only let-down. Friendly staff as...

Me and my fiancee stayed for two nights and we have literally nothing to complain about. Everything was great! A pleasant surprise was that not only breakfast was included but also evening dinner buffé. Would recommend this hotel to anyone visting Oslo.

This hotel is only a few minutes' walk from Oslo Central Station and so is well-situated for a sightseeing trip. The rooms are large and comfortable, although the red and black decor might not be to everyone's taste.

Comfy beds, great shower, central location, clean, and the best breakfast smorgasbord this highly traveled reviewer has ever had. But the room decor -- black, red, weird lighting, no surface areas and so very hard to settle in even for a short time -- was a huge drawback.
