My wife and I arrived here very late from flying in to Oslo. The walk from the train station was short and easy. Checking was pretty easy even with it being a computer terminal versus an actual front desk. I think they need to rec-calibrate the screen though since they were hard to press. But after that we buzzed for...

We stayed here after flying in late and before heading out of Oslo the next morning, so it was a quick stopover. I got what I felt was a very good price for a city center room (£68) so close to the bus station, which is where we needed to be. The hotel was easy to find and the electronic...

Super close to the main Oslo railway station. Was very easy to find. The room was lovely, spacey and bright. There wasn't a TV or a restaurant. But there was free Wi-Fi and a partner cafe next door where I got a discount for staying in the hotel. There are self check-in machines, and they're in English and Norwegian. But...

Rooms are ok (we had 3 rooms for our small group), functional furniture, comfortable new bathrooms, everything is clean. Good location in the center. Good value for the money. Since there are almost no cars in the center of Oslo, the noise level during the night is ok.

The hotel is in the middle of the city yet you do not get the negative experiences accompanying a hotel in the city center (noise, vibrations, etc.). The metro is five minutes away, but we hardly had to use it as every attraction is 10-15 minutes away. The room was clean, spacious, luminous, and VERY comfortable. We got a great...

This a simple, easy business hotel. Nothing fancy at all but the rooms are clean and you have all you need. I had a lot of problems with their wifi but the concierge was helpful and I can't imagine it being a recurring issue. It's basically one of the most central hotels in Oslo so the only draw-back with regards...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Citybox is a modern economy hotel with low prices. Our rooms are cheap because we keep our running expenses down while still offering our guests what they really need: a simple and stylish room with a delicate bath, a comfortable bed, a good chair, a desk and a place for hanging your clothes. Wireless broadband is available free of charge throughout the hotel. Citybox combines simplicity with comfort and low prices. The hotel is located in the centre of Oslo, 5 minutes walking from Oslo S, train staion. If you want to spend your money on something other than a minibar and room service, then Citybox is the place for you. Oslo is full of bars. Why do you need one in your hotel room? We recently teamed up with a cafe that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner for all our guests, and also provides a 10% discount for our guests. In addition they also cater to our meeting rooms. The cafe has a direct entrance from the hotel. ... more   less
