"Nice for short stay"
The location of the hotel is central and the access is through the folketeatret gallery. The check in was quick, the staff were helpfull, the room was clean. The downside, is the amount of itinerant people sitting at the entrance of the hotel, the smell of mold near the elevator. And the extremely narrow room with lack of hangers and storage place
"Great hotel, friendly staff"
Nice hotel with super friendly staff. Very positive experiences at check-in, during stay and at check out. Reasonable prices for Oslo with lots included. Very nice breakfast! Good location, a good 5 minutes walk from the central station.
As per instructions on the website the hotel were given a month warning of the need for a special diet, with a reminder the week before. However, the reception still did not provide the necessary instructions to the kitchen and no appropriate food was available. I ended up with an evening meal of plain rice and olives. Unacceptable.
"Great location. Comfortable room."
The hotel is in a very central location with easy access to the train station and most the sites. The room was small but very comfortable. I took a room on an upper floor at the back which was quiet except for the sound of the town hall bells ringing occasionally. I did not hear any noise from the night club out front. The bathroom sink splashed water on the floor if the tap was turned all the way. The time I was there the dining hall was closed for refurbishment but I could take food from the coolers any time I wanted. I like the unique layout of the halls with wide stairways.
I stayed here for a night having travelled to Oslo to see a concert with my teenage daughter. My initial experience wasn't great. I had requested a twin superior room at the time of booking. I specifically asked via booking.com for two beds. I received a response from the hotel that this could be accommodated. However, on arrival this room type had not been booked. They said that 'fortunately' for me there was one left but this was not ready. We waited for 40 minutes or so and then went back to the receptionist who told us yes the room was ready. Not the best start. The room was a good size, was clean, modern and very comfortable. We were pleased with our choice. I decided to try the evening meal but was concerned that the choice would be limited. I'm so glad that we did. Yes there is only a small choice but it was lovely. They were serving potato soup, chilli con carne and a salad. Norway is extremely expensive and we were able to have a lovely meal at no extra cost. After a comfortable and quite nights sleep I discovered that the tv would no longer turn on. This was a bit frustrating but not the end of the world. We then went down to breakfast. We have been to some fantastic hotels in the past and this breakfast was on par, if not better, than all of the five star hotels I have stayed in. It really was fantastic. So much choice and really efficient staff. Overall, this was so close to being scored a five. I booked this hotel because I wanted a twin room and we very nearly didn't have one. Something went wrong somewhere with the booking process. However the location was ideal, the food was amazing and the room was very comfortable.
