          New hotel in the midle of Oslo. Modern and simple furnishing and interior, in great natural colours. Small but confortable rooms with huge windows with a view on the main street, high soft bed, big TV and whats very nice iPod / iPhone dock in the rooms. Breakfast is very various, rich and fresh, I was positivly suprised and enjoyed it very much! The stuff is very friendly, even in the morning ;-) I would definetly book this hotel again.

          Unfortunatly apart from BBC and Euronews there was no promissed international chanels on the TV. There was no mini bar in my room.

          Nice and brand new hotel downtown Oslo. Very good beds! Modern and minimalistic interior. Small but good breakfast buffet - very good with the chef who was preparing fresh fried eggs and omelets on demand! Cool breakfast room.

          When showering the curtain did not manage to keep water from splashing almost all over the floor.

        • Single
          8.8

          The staff was very pleasant and helpful and the breakfast was truly amazing. It was a great location and a really comfortable room.

          Some faults might be that the room was dusty and that the TV was difficult to work (for a 23 year old!) with only 5 channels. It's a new hotel, and I think they're still trying to work out the kinks.

          I stayed only one evening, and had a good breakfast in the morning. Fine hotel, good service and helpful personal.

          we found the location good for tourist sights and staff helpful and courteous

          fantastic breakfast, great comfort, good position!

        • Older travelers
          9.4

          We found that the hotel was adequate for a one night stay. Also staff were very friendly.

          The rooms were small with no storage space. Therefore we would not stay for more than one night.

        • Single
          7.8

          The location downright in the city center is excellent and the staff was very friendly. All in all I feel confident about the hotel and I would choose it again if I stayed again in Oslo.

          The door, which served as window in my room was not to be opened and I am used to sleep with window opened but on request I had beed told that this is due to Norwegian fire prevention directions. When taking a shower water leaks out under the glass door of the shower and floods your shower room. But this is a minor issue.

        • Single

          Very well located in the Oslo city centre. Airport bus conveniently stops right opposite the road. Many sightseeing, shopping and eating options nearby.

          No internet facilities for those without a computer.

          The Breakfast was awesome and even though we were there during the terrorist attack the staff was calm and professional and welcoming. Small room but I expected that but the room was well laid out and very nice. Ac worked great

        • Single
          9.2

          The breakfast buffet is really very very very good. Tasty and healthy at the same time

          The first room was not clean (sticky floor) but when I mentioned it they changed me immediately.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          we liked the design of the hotel especially its modern features; we liked the delicious and generous breakfast; we liked its great location which is very close to the center and easy to get to from the airport ; we liked the room which was small but well-equipped . We found the mattresses to be too soft , though; we thought it is reasonably priced. we will definitely recommend the hotel to our friends and on the relevant networks.

        • Couple
          9.2

          Amazing breakfast and really modern decor throughout the hotel. Really friendly staff also. Location is great, right in the centre of Oslo and a couple of minutes from the central station.

          It would have been nice if there was a bath and ironing facilities in the room.

        • Older travelers
          9.0

          I liked the stay in the hotel, it felt welcoming when we arrived and we were treated well and given information to assist us. Thank you.

          All was good just needed a chair and some where to hang a few things.
