Good 6,0
Over rated
The hotel is located in a trendy and modern area of Oslo. It enjoys some hype but overall is over rated. Clients are expected to do quite amount of self service. In my room, one piece of furniture is broken, instructions for room controls are not straightforward, room is small, complementary water has to be requested, there is no easy reference on hotel amenities and their locations, TV control is too complicated. There are many other nice hotels in Oslo with characters and stories. This one is pretentious.

The Thief stole my heart
I loved this hotel! Check in was quick and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. I arrived just as breakfast was closing in the restaurant, but I called the restaurant before heading down and they kept things open a bit longer for me! This made a huge difference to my day - after travelling I needed a quick convenient breakfast. We took a few glasses of Champagne in the bar later - a lovely bar, again with efficient and polite staff. The only draw of the food and beverage side, was the limited room service menu. Enjoy food on here for a snack, but not for a fussy eater! The room was fabulous. A small balcony which overlooked the water - and nice to have some fresh air in the room. Enough floor space and space to hang clothes, and any luggage. The bed looked luxurious with lots of pillows, and was comfortable for sleeping. There were some very cool touches to the room - light sensors in the bathroom, extra pillows with fun labels, a tv system that was friendly to use, and more entertaining than the usual set up. I did not make it to the spa - but the facilities looked lovely! With an express elevator from each floor to the spa - it felt very convenient! The area feels slightly odd as to access the hotel, you must drive through a car park - but it is easy to walk into town, and get taxis. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, and being on the water really was lovely. I would recommend the hotel - and I will definitely go back!

Great hotel---tourist vibe
The hotel is very nicely appointed, staff extremely gracious....rooms luxurious but in a way (and I like modern) cold feeling aesthetically...the "wharf" is totally a tourist attraction and has little authenticity which made it a bit boring
