Tromso, Norway

Minibar was empty, the remote for the tv did not work and the cleaning staff very so noisy that I didn't need an alarmclock. At the reception there were not enough on hand to accommodate a bus load of tourists as well as ordinary hotel guests. The paint is peeking, there is no heating in the bathroom floor and soaps...

Brussels, Belgium
Reviewed 22 August 2014

In the middle of Oslo city centre next to the railwaystation and the Airport Express Train. It is a bit of at "hotelmaschine", efficient and clean. Very good breakfast as well as lunch buffet. Ask for a room at the back since there is a tram crossroad just outside that is rather noisy as from 5-6 o'clock

We stayed here for two nights on our Scandinavian tour. The breakfast buffet was delicious! Our room was a typical European room with two single beds but the real highlight of the room is the shower! My husband said it is the best he has ever had!

We has a nice stay, spoiled by a breakfast meltdown in one of the days. We were a party of five and had acceptable rooms, especially a nice 3 bed room given to our daughters. Our room was small but comfortable. The hotel location is great, and you can walk around Oslo without taking a car or even public transport....
