                I liked everything, though most of all checking in at 8 a.m. instead of waiting until 3 p.m. as provided by general rules. Besides, at the day of checking out breakfast should have started at 7.30 a.m. Assuming my train departure at 8.11 the staff arranged breakfast at 7. Staff very helpful and professional.

                Close to railway station, just there is point to sell and buy drugs ... Excellent breakfast. Great collection of art on the rooms! Very friendly stuffs!

                Old rooms, dusty carpets on a surface.

                The location was good.

                The bar was closed throughout our stay. No-one had warned us about this in advance.

                The location was unbeatable- right beside the central station, beside the tram lines and in walking distance of all the attractions.

                Hotel was clean and nicely decorated. Best of all, it's across the street from the railway station. With the airport express train, you can avoid a v expensive taxi ride. Excellent breakfast, again avoiding an expensive meal out. Norway is costly.

                While the location is convenient, it can be noisy through the night as some questionable people hang out around the building.

                5.4

                extremly noicy with a caroke bar just across the street from my room. It was only possible to sleep between 3 and 8 am.

              • Single
                7.4

                I like the hotel is 3 minutes from Oslo Central station, which was very nice as I came to Oslo about 10 p.m. The room was comfortable, breakfast -excellent, the staff-very polite and helpful.

                The windows of my room went to the street opposite a musical bar, it was rather noisy, especially on Friday night.

              • Single
                7.8

                The rooms are attractive and well appointed. Bed comfortable. Staff are helpful-ish. Breakfast is good.

                Some rooms overlook the station plaza and busy walking street and can be noisy. I had to change my room after the 2nd night which was then fine.

                Excellent position,very close to Central Railway Station and to the Bus Terminal. Very kind staff,rooms clean and tidy,excellent and varied breakfast. Good price-quality relation.
