We stayed here for 3 nights and mostly enjoyed the stay. The room is basic but it's clean and has everything you need. There is tea and coffee facilities available to borrow from reception (Not sure why they don't have these in the rooms?). The breakfast buffet has plenty choice and very good. The staff are very friendly and helpful....

I stayed a week at Anker and have stayed several times at this hotel in the past. The hotel is near to the Oslo bus terminal and the Oslo Central train station. The hotel offers an amazing view over Oslo from floor 8 and I suggest you ask for your room from this level if you like. The added benefit...

Absolutely fabulous views of Oslo from the upper floors, especially the panoramic one from the windows by the (staff?) lifts. The best buffet breakfast I have ever had with an amazing choice of items & lots of veggie options. They even let us into the breakfast hall before it was due to open so we could grab something before our...

We spent 3 nights here over New Year. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff are pleasant and helpful and - apparently like everyone in Oslo - speak perfect English. The included breakfast is excellent. A good value and well located base to explore Osli

A fairly central budget choice, devoid of any class, charm or atmosphere. Needs some maintenance. Family rooms with upto 5 beds are ok and functional. An acceptable buffet breakfast is included. The hotel does offer parking - public parking in the street is 250 NOK for 24 hours.

The hotel is quite near to bussterminal and train station. It is big with a nice view in the upper floors (ask for it if possible). Just beside the hotel there is a street full of pub and restaurant. People very very kind, friendly and efficient. We spend there one night because we hat a flight the next morning: we...

The location is good. Lots of great places to eat and drink nearby. The rooms very spartan. No charm but are fairly comfortable. Slow and small elevators. Wifi works well. The bar is aweful, somewhat of an afterthought. If your in transit for a day this hotel is ok, longer stay look elsewhere.

It's very close to town, we were there to a seminar. So I didn't experience the food. But the rooms were ok. They were refurbishing at the time, so I shouldn't prejudge the place too much. But it looks much better than before.
