A normal, efficient, comfortable, generally above average chain hotel. The breakfast, though, is really good. All the awards it has received are not without reason, and if breakfast is a big part of your day on holiday, like it is for us, then you couldn't do much better than this hotel.

Excellent hotel in close proximity to cool bars, good restaurants and the central parts of Oslo. The best hotel breakfast I have tasted in Norway. Great gym and room with a good ambiance. Value added with newspapers, free coffee and evening meal.

The location made me select the hotel but had I known that they pass off a single occupancy room for a standard double I would never have booked it.The rooms are miniscule and without any place for luggage.The bathrooms are sparse no shelf no towel rack no utility rack.The only towel rack is placed over the toilet seat.
