This hotel is located in the worst area of Oslo. Unsafe and dirty. The hotel has a nice lobby, but that is about it. The room was dirty and noisy, the staff was rude and did not care for us.. No room service, no food available at the hotel after 10 am. We hated our stay here, and was lucky enough to relocate to a better hotel.. so at least some of our holiday was saved. Do your self a favour... STAY AWAY..
"...it used to be a modern design hotel..."
The breakfast buffet was great, fantastic food and absolutely lovely personnel. People at the reception not doing their best as much as in the restaurant. The room must have been really very nice a few years ago, but the interior is no longer what it used to be. All in all a bit too expensive for what you get.
"Tired boring hotel"
This hotel pretends to be modern and well designed. But it not a nice place to stay. The room I stayed in was not cleaned properly, the interior felt tired and the hotel just feels like a standard boring hotel chain.
"dark and depressing room"
the room was large, but dark and depressing interior design. would not recommend to others or stay here again. breakfast was fine. location is good, in the middle of Oslo and walking distance to restaurants and shops.
"Great location, modern amenities, cozy"
I loved the cozy lobby and the modern room. The breakfast buffet was awesome - love the Norwegian waffles especially. The bathroom was small but had a heated floor and great toiletries - and a rain shower. The bed was really great and the lighting was nice. The hotel had a cool rooftop bar - not open during the winter but still cool to see the city from above. The lobby had a fire, tea and coffee available, and plenty of reading material. The location was incredible - near to so many of Oslo's sights and bus routes, but not near enough to be noisy or inundated with tourists. Hitting that location sweet spot. My one issue is with the front desk service. Check in/out was smooth and easy, but they weren't able to offer any helpful advice. Maybe this is because we were there over the New Year's holiday and it wasn't their usual staff. When we arrived on the 30th at around 7pm, we asked for a dinner recommendation. We were told that most places were closed, and the places that were open were probably booked. That's it. So....are we supposed to go hungry then' We decided to check out the options for ourselves, walked a few blocks away, found a great indian food place, and were seated in 5 minutes. The next night, New Year's Eve, I asked about fireworks locations or places where people gathered. I was told that anywhere in the city would be good for fireworks, as long as it wasn't foggy . No other information, no recommendation of squares or streets or fireworks presentations. We went to the Opera House, which was a fun, lively spot, but we heard numerous other fireworks around the city (it was foggy so we couldn't see them), and wondered if there was a better spot to be. Maybe next time! Dining room staff was great.
