Better for single person
All was quite good. Perfect location, great service, very good breakfast, comfortable bed. But, the room is really too small for a couple. No chair. And, our bed was on a 2 inch high platform that went to the wall at the bottom and far sides of the bed, so there was no easy way to get in or out of bed from the far side - had to try to walk on the platform to not disturb my sleeping spouse.

Great location and breakfast. Superior service. A little tight for Americans, but comfortable.

Fair 4,0
The rooms are extremely small and it appeared as if there was pet urine on the carpeting of the hallways.
Steve, us1 night family trip
Exceptional 10,0
Highly Recommend in Centrum Oslo
I recommend this hotel. It was spacious for a centrum based hotel. Friendly staff. Clean room and comfortable bed. Large bathroom. I did recommend that the hotel get new carpeting in the rooms. It was worn and stained from over usage.

Clean yet basic
Clean yet basic accommodation in the city centre. Breakfast is decent - what you’d expect from a 3* hotel really. Bathroom and bedroom clean.
