Very good location near restaurants, shopping and Aker Brygge, an upscale waterfront area with restaurants, shopping, a museum and boats to go to the different islands. Room was small and balcony opened to the inside of the hotel, which let a lot of light into our room. Also, seeing as it was July, the sun didn't set until late so...

We stayed here 4 nights and found it was an excellent location to see all the sights. We had an upper floor room and that was great - so quiet. Others had lower floors and could hear the night life. The breakfast was amazing! It was the best of any of the other hotels we stayed in with excellent variety,...
