Sondrio, Italy
Reviewed 21 January 2016

All is ok, staff, position, breakfast, restaurant but the standard rooms are not satisfied. Too small with a very bad shower (with the curtain!). There isn't the spa and in the luxury structure this is a bad thing.

Very good hotel, modern decor, clean and well situated. It was a warm cosy place to shelter from the cold, blustery winter weather of Oslo! The hotel is well situated in the quiet area of the old town, within walking distance to the opera house, main harbour areas and Oslo central station. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby, however beware...

I book a room, and also add early check-in service. Then I could do an early check-in at 11 am. I arrive at 11:30am, and no room was avaible. I had to wait half-an hour before I could get my room. And they charge me for the service! Sorry, I can not recomend this hotel.
