The location of this hotel is very central within walking distance of the train station and the main high street. We were welcomed with a quick easy check in. Our room was impressive with modern lighting, spacious, lots of storage and a stunning bathroom. If I could design my own bathroom, it'd basically be the one we had here! Breakfast...

Price far too high for what you get - especially cleanliness of floors, windows - rooms would need refurbishment of the floors, doors etc. What you call a desk is a shelf - it's impossible to work there.

Beautiful roof top bar with great views across oslo and a good location. Had higher expectations for the size of rooms from what I've come to expect from staying at hotels in London for the same price but in the hotels defence Oslo is a very expensive city so maybe space is hard to come by. I'd suggest the future...

I stayed at the hotel for two nights while in Oslo on business as the location was convenient. The staff were all friendly and the breakfast was good. Wifi was quick. However the rooms are not as good as the pictures on the website. The hotel really needs to put some investment into refurbishment. Stains on the carpets. Dusty smell...

Stayed here for one night. We've lived in Oslo for 10 years, but have moved out of town. Chose this hotel because of it's location, roof top terrasse, design and the fact that it was 3 times cheaper than staying at the Thief;) It's located close to Aker Brygge and the main street Karl Johan, you will find everything you...

Great location, but rooms are small and a bit tired. Does not have in room facilities one would expect from a 5 star hotel. Rooms not always cleaned well. Worst thing for me was that the showers have shower curtains - which is more akin to a budget hotel and not what I'd expect in a well designed boutique hotel!
