"Exemplary hotel & staff"
We had a wonderful stay at the Clarion Bastion. Staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable with heated floor in the bathroom. The hotel offers breakfast, afternoon tea and a free dinner which was delicious with many choices. We needed to do some laundry during our stay and after some initial issues with the facilities, we received help from staff member Jenny, who was very friendly and accommodating as well as responsible for some of the excellent food on offer! In fact, it seemed all of the staff here enjoy working at this hotel and take pride in it. We will not hesitate in returning to this hotel next time we visit Oslo.
rooms were very good, split in two which i liked, tv room separate from the bedroom, huge dining area, which is mobbed, go early/late etc. Cool little gym and pool area which was great and underused. Good base for city centre
"Quite cold outside very warm hospitality"
Travelling around Europe, and staying in different hotels for more than fifteen years, one of the conclusions is that one of most important factor to choose a hotel is the kindness and hospitalityf. Nowdays, thanks to social media and platforms like Tripadvisor, we are able to see the instrastructure, the different extras of each hotel and read reviews from visitors. Though at my understanding one of the important factors while staying to a hotel is to relax, I don't spend much time inside the hotel but this little time should be relaxing. Theefore it is worthy to mention that all the people at Clarion Collection Hotel Bastion provided us this warm hospitality and gave us the opportunity to be very producitve during this business trip.
"Free dinner & only 10 min walk from castle & shops "
Overall we really liked our stay here. Nice quiet area with little or no traffic. Town centre and shops all within 10 min walk. Hotel staff were really nice dinner included in price which is a god send in Oslo. Although not fancy dan it was very nice and you could have much as you like.No tea making facility in room but there is a free endless supply of hot drinks in reception. Give you an empty fridge to store what you want. Deffo go back if we visit Oslo again.
"Conveniently located hotel from the train station."
The hotel is an easy walk from Oslo S station. We had had come in on a very early flight and reached at 7am, so we stored our baggage at their room prior to checking in. The receptionist said there would be an available room at noon if we were back by then for an earlier check in. We had made a booking through Expedia, and had no issues. The twin room was nice and cosy, beds were comfortable and the room itself was a decent size - enough space for our luggage bags. Adequate number of power points, and decent lighting. Bathroom was a bit on the small size but it did the trick. Water pressure was good but it was a bit difficult to control the water heating - it would veer from very hot to cool; finding a happy medium was a bit difficult. Complimentary DIY pancakes for tea was a bonus, and enjoyed the 24 hour tea and coffee, although it would be nice to have a kettle in the room in case you wake up at night wanting a drink. Dinner was also good - decent choice of salads, and a two course meal of the chef's choice. The night we stayed was a grilled pollock with pepper sauce, really delicious and fresh! Staff were really friendly and were always ready to answer questions. Check out was really simple as well, smooth and no issues. Location-wise, it was an easy walk to the Opera House, Karl Johan Gate and the station. There are also nearby buses and metro stops which made it convenient for moving around the city. Cons: Room was freezing that night despite the heater being on maximum. Something probably needs to be done about central heating. Tried calling the desk but no one picked up. Also the rooms aren't exactly soundproof, so we were woken up by people coming in after a late night out. Otherwise, it's a really lovely cost hotel. Would definitely consider staying again!
