Great location, right be central train station

Posted Sep 14, 2017
More spacious than most European hotels. When we checked in, they informed us that since our checkout was on a Sunday, they could offer us a late checkout of 6 pm. That was perfect as we had a 6:45 flight Sunday evening, so we were able to leave our stuff in the room and freshen up later in the day. We wouldn't even have thought to ask for that. Also, the breakfast buffet was the best of all places we stayed over 2 weeks in various Scandinavian cities. Such a nice way to start each day.

Super hotel but can be noisy if there's a party on

Posted Sep 2, 2017
Excellent hotel in a superb location, adjacent to the Central Station. A new development now means that you can't see the amazing Opera House from the Business Class Rooms, which is disappointing. Business Class Rooms are big and well finished. Nice free toiletries provided as well as robes and slippers. Bed is really comfortable and also USB charging points provided. Breakfast is excellent with a huge selection. Only slight negative is that the noise from functions/parties can be heard in the rooms on the lower floors. So our Top Tip would be to ask the friendly and helpful reception staff for a room on as high a floor as possible.

Indeed very convince location

Posted Aug 23, 2017
Easy to get from airport. The transit train arrives into the next building. Paid underground parking next to the hotel. Yes it's central location and uber convenient. Breakfast buffet is the best. You may also get a reservation with "light dinner" which is oslo good and practical. This is a plus since restoraunt experience in Norway is a mixed bag not even mentioning that be ready to pay twice from what you pay in California. Talking of uber in Oslo. It's there despite that it's not officially prrmited yet. Cheap and convinient. If you'd like to ride a city bike just install online app. It's easier than perceived. Be careful app for Oslo and Bergen is not the same. If you use T-Mobile unlimited plan you are covered with internet and text messaging. Install viber and you can talk too. Anyway hotel is discent and the best experience overall in norway hotels that we stayed. Warning Thon in Stavanger is not as good, but Stavanger is another story.

Great location.

Cons: Buffet dinner
Location: Across the street from the opera house.
Easy walking distance to main attractions. Buffet dinner needs improvement.

Hotel ideally situated .

Posted Aug 9, 2017
Ease of access to all transport and also close to many tourist attractions. Although Oslo is a high cost city for British tourists we felt that the Hotel facilities gave us reasonable value for money. All staff we encountered were extremely pleasant and helpful and the included breakfast was excellent
