Great Hotel

Posted Feb 10, 2018
Location: I was able to walk to the opera house and the old Castle. The main shopping district is very close as is most things.
The Blu is a short walk from the Train Station. Centrally located to easy to get around. All forms of transportation just steps from the hotel. The Breakfast buffet is incredible. More than anyone could ask for. Cost of food and drink are very high here. Norway tends to be an expensive city but $35US for a hamburger is a bit silly.

Bland, inefficient, expensive

Posted Feb 7, 2018
Pros: Not a lot really... just the location
Cons: replace front of the house team with those who actually want to work there it was draining dealing with most of them
junior Staff are most trainee and young without experience, with little common sense and willingness to serve in a SERVICE industry - very unwilling to help beyond checking you in and out - no concierge on site, with the exception of their service Manager Fara who checked us in with full of smile and hospitality but then was off all week end we were there. extremely expensive hotel really not a good value for money, very bland - if you stay there check your bills as their system did not keep up with original booking and I was nearly charge three times of the amount I paid all I got when I queried it was Oh sorry the system does not show me proof of payment of original booking ... would not stay there again as I think I can get a better deal for humongous amount of money I spent for a three night stay without a smile

Great central location

Posted Jan 14, 2018
Pros: The whole ambience
Cons: Cleaning staff
Location: Next the Sentral Station, close to the Opera and lots of sights within walking distance
The hotel is perfectly located in the centre of town. The 34 restaurant is wonderful, serving superb food.

short walk from the train station , comfy room

Posted Jan 7, 2018
Pros: close to the train station and general shopping and eating , cabs are out front as needed top floor bar
Cons: modify hours for the bar ,
Location: shopping and eating mosty ok hike from the train , but get ready to uber to statues and such
im a fan of roof top bars , this place posted the best view , however small windows and limited daytime hours had me popping a few doors to see what i wanted to see. nice mural for the red cross is visible from the window and walkable in under ten min. this place is pretty close to shopping but if your rolling luggage i would suggest ubering to the waterfront and other tourist trap areas . this city is changing for the better , i would wait a few years to visit just due to the planned development of the waterfront.

Lovely hotel, excellent location

Posted Jan 2, 2018
Our family of 5 had a great stay. The location couldn't be more convenient to the central train station, shopping, restaurants and sights. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms had plenty of space.

great views from the top floor bar

Posted Dec 29, 2017
Pros: rooftop bar
Location: This hotel is isolated from night life and entertainment areas.
I love the view from the bar at the top level. The location isn't great for a traveler looking to walk to entertainment and nightlife quickly. The rooms are spacious with sitting areas and a comfortable bedding and towels

Nice and in convenient location

Posted Dec 25, 2017
Pros: Location, amenity, cleanliness, comfort and shopping in the close proximity
Cons: Room door was not locked simultaneously right after the door is closed. Should be informed by staffs during check in.
Location: next to or close to transport (bus, train). Also shopping malls , local attraction and restaurants.
Located next to Oslo Central bus terminal and in short walking distance to central railways station as well as shopping malls. This makes the trip so convenient to commute domestically and regionally. Also not too far to walk to city centre and most attraction.
