A great hotel, with an excellent breakfast. The personell was welcoming, the junior suite was ok, the leather chairs was worn out. I would have given the hotel 4 out of 5 if it had have hot water in the showers. Both days of my stay, stepping into the shower at 0745 the water was ice cold.

I keep returning to this hotel, not only because it provides great loyalty program, but also because this hotel in particular feels like "coming back home". Especially for a tired business traveler, it offers light evening meal, soup at late evening, some fruits and coffee/tea, if one has to come back to hotel and work again, or relax. Also I...

I will not add more to the other comments (despite saying they are correct). The hotel is nicely situated in a very quiet (and wealthy) district of Oslo - easily connected to the Tram 12 and 13, bus 30 etc. For runners, the coast and the Vigelandpark are nice spots. The superior room was not spectacular but confortable, especially the...

I very much enjoyed my stay in this hotel. The hotel is a lovely older building in a quiet neighborhood. The breakfast buffet and dinner were great. And the self-serve espresso machine was a thoughtful touch. Luana, the hotel receptionist is a particularly wonderful and welcoming person with a great smile. She is a fantastic representative for this charming hotel....

This hotel is a gem. The building looks more like a private house than a hotel, and the lounge and dining area is fantastic for relaxing. Read a book in the library or enjoy the free evening meal.

Very nice and friendly staff. Helped me to a better room with a Smile. The gym had basic equipment. I just loved bottled water for Free. But I recommend jogging because of the magnificent surrounding. The afternoon sweets were besutifully preSented. The room was cold because of an unproof balchony door. Had the best breakfast ever.
