Great hotel and very helpful staff
Great service, very helpful and accommodating staff- let us check in at 7am! Rooms are large, though not very cosy. Location is great. Lobby is very nice as well. One issue was the water from the shower was not draining properly and flooded the bathroom and even reaching the bedroom carpets.

Hot, pricey, but very clean
Warm room, no windows to the outside, ergo; No fresh air. Had to upgrade because the first room had a tiny shower, unfit for any big man, but the upgrade wasn't cheap. Other than that it was good. Cleanliest hotel I've ever been to and great area of the city

The room didn't have a window to the outside and was pretty hot the whole night. And the shower didn't work like it was supposed to and was a little small for a big man. I've stayed at this hotel many times and this is the only time it hasn't been "perfect".

It’s a nice hotel, well located. I loved the design of my bedroom even if the furniture looks a bit worn. The carpet must be changed. It’s the first thing you see when you enter in the bedroom. But overall, I definitely enjoyed my stay there. The only bummer is the shower space. If you are overweight, you may have some difficulty to close the glass door behind you (no offense here). Great staff, always trying to make your stay enjoyable.

Not a 4.5 star hotel. 3.5 maybe!

Reception was a nightmare due to some IT and network challenges. It took for quite a long time and I know the lady at the reception desk did her best and was not her fault. She did not either advice on hotel services, elevator, breakfast, wifi or any other possible additional services the hotel might have offered. Overall feeling was a bit old school, even though bed, bathroom and toilet were renewed and in a really good condition. The bed was actually super comfortable! I did manage to find the breakfast room on my own and breakfast was really nice. The check-out took also quite a while. I have no idea why the receptionist did not have there at her hands the information that I had booked two rooms thru and that the payment is managed there. My purchase from mini-bar was very simple but yet it took a lot of typing, clicking and computer work to get the receipt out.

Poor service but a nice roofbar
A hotel with lack of service and smile. The rooms need an urgent upgrade

An okay stay in Oslo.
The room is showing its age. It smelled of smoke at first but the young woman at the desk brought up some air freshener and it helped. She did offer to move me to a nicer roon, but I had already unpacked. It was hard to get the temperature in the room right, and the lighting system took some education and getting used to. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
