Positive Reviews

Central location in Oslo

This hotel boasts a location right in the centre of Oslo. Everything is within walking distance and there are shops and restaurants nearby. There is also a theatre, parliament buildings and nightlife within easy reach. The main train station is about five minutes' walk away, if not less.

Unwind and meet others in the lobby area

The hotel offers a spacious lobby area where guests can work, can relax or can meet others. Drinks and snacks are available to buy at reception.

Good value accommodation

This accommodation is perfect for travellers who want somewhere cheap to stay in order to explore the city. Apart from the central location the value for money is one of the most complimented aspects of this property. The bathrooms are larger than expected, especially in comparison to the bedroom area, and offer powerful showers.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are a little cramped

Rooms are on the small side and can be a little cramped if there are two people staying. However they are quite bright and a large mirror makes it feel bigger than it is. If you're out working or exploring the city and just using your room as a base then you will find it more than adequate.

Limited breakfast options

Breakfast is small and light and some guests feel it is rather limited. However, there have been many compliments about the quality of food on offer and the value for money. There are many eateries nearby if you wish to eat out.

Not many staff around

Many areas of the hotel are self-service and there never seems to be many staff around. Guests feel that the staff they did meet were friendly and attentive but feel this is one way the hotel keeps its costs down.
