Helpful friendly staff. Excellent location, walking distance from main train station, buses and tram stops. Rooms were good size as well with a bit of a view down the walk street. The breakfast is excellent with a wide choice of hot and cold food. The Standard Room, did not have tea/coffee making facilities.

We stayed here for 4 nights during the WC in skiing 2011. It couldn't have had a better location.
Just a few step to the train station where we could get directly to Holmenkollen. Great breakfastbuffet,and very caring and friendly staff.

I was in Oslo work over a weekend. The hotel was a welcome Oasis in this cold (and very expensive) country. Rooms were perfect; staff professional and polite; location great; and the breakfast was exceptional! Only compliant was the bar outside the hotel (across the street) that played karaoke (very loudly) until 4am. Request an inside rooms.

Room Tip: Great location by bus station and center to all activities.

This hotel is in a good location for trains and buses,however it is also the ugly part of town.Reception staff are slow.
The rooms are small and comfortable,a sauna is available from 5-11pm.

If you want charm this is not the place.

The best part of this hotel is it's great breakfast.The breakfast staff are particularly helpful and quick.

Close by is the Bacchus cafe, has good service,pretty location and OK food.

Just opposite Oslo central station, you couldn't ask for a more central location. Easy to get around on foot and very brightly lit and safe at night. i was concerned it might be a bit noisy, but had the best sleep ever on super comfy beds. the rooms are very large, but it was the service on the front desk that really made this a great experience. They girls were so friendly and full of recommendations - very helpful. The buffet breakfast is quite extensive too!
