10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Friendly helpful staff. Good location. Good brakfast
8.5 Very good
Pros:A fine hotel with comfortable rooms. The location was perfect. The breakfast was very good for the level of hotel - a good range including local specialities if you want to try. Very helpful and friendly front office staff impressively multilingual.
Cons:The atmosphere was a bit close in the room and a supplied fan only helped a bit.
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:The fourth floor breakfast room serves a very complete offering. Nice touch is that the menu varies slightly day-to-day.
6.2 Okay
Pros:Perfect location near the King's Palace.
Cons:Unfortunately, our room was right over a bar with an extremely loud band playing till 2:30 am. If we hadn't had suitcases unpacked, we would have asked to be moved. Very short night of sleep.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The hotel is located in the very heart of Oslo by Karl Johan avenue by the parliament, national theatre, royal palace and galleries. The bay is only a short walk away. The hotel by itself is grand with paintings all over the walls. Stuff are really polite, nice buffet style breakfast.Really enjoyed our stay. Much recommended!
8.8 Very good
Pros:Staff greeted us personally and were so helpful. Facilities excellent and breakfast was served until 11am so could have a lie in x
8.0 Very good
Pros:Really good location for train and easy to get too. A little bit too touristy for us but it was very convenient. Breakfast buffet is really good. Hotel lounge was very comfortable if you have to check out early and needed a place to rest before your flight.
Cons:Bathroom was small and no real shampoo.
7.4 Good
Pros:They get the job done. Good breakfast, good location, good staff, good price.
Cons:The hotel is a little run down, but overall was worth the price.
5.4 Fair
Pros:Very central - location
Cons:The rooms. We got 327 which had the shower and the toilet in the same space. It was a minuscule room with zero space to breath. One morning, unfortunately, when walking out of the room we found feces in the hallway. We reported it to the front desk. Although, it is understandable that was not the hotel's fault, one expects to be compensated in some sort for the unsightly inconvenience.
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:We were given a room upgrade, which was very nice. The room was spacious and comfortable.
Cons:It was a bit far from the station, but the T-bane was nearby.
