    Excellent location for walking around Oslo. A few minutes walk to historic sites and the harbour.

    Poor lighting in the bathroom.

    Super modern suite. Close to the centre, but in a quite location. Lots of bars & lovely coffee shops on its doorstep.

    Location is not so convenient.

    Room was a bit narrow and its facility was very simple.

    The lighting was crazy. Multiple room lights connected, no way to get just a single light to come on.

    Breakfast was okay (just standard food) and the bed itself was pretty comfortable and clean. Other than that, nothing about the hotel is plausible.

    A lot of negative things about this hotel. First of all, we arrived (4people) and have booked 2 rooms. When we wanted to check in they said we booked only 1 guest for each room and had to pay extra for the other 2 guests. They told us it was 159NOK per extra person, so we had to pay 318NOK for 2 people. But when we check out they charged us 500NOK for the extra guests, we were too disappointed with our stay to complain and ask our money back. Not to mention we paid 4500NOK for 1 night 2 rooms on top of the extra fee. The room itself: it was relatively small, which is okay if the facilities were all good. But not at this hotel. The office table is too small. The bathroom is so small and dark. I bumped myself a few times in the corners and door. There is barely any space between the toilet bowl and door and washing basin. The water from the shower makes loud sounds when we turn it on and the water pump pulses so the water was not consistent. When the next door room showers too, the noise can be heard from my room. Even the hot water changes temperatures randomly. They did not provide any bathroom supplies like toothbrush, comb, shaving kit etc. The AC in the room did not function well. I called the operator, reception and room service to ask how to turn the AC on and no one picked up. Had to call 4x until the reception picked up and did not even give a useful instruction. Afterwards the AC still didnt work and we had to open the windows (which was by the streets and it was loud with cars passing by and people talking). There was no kettle in the room.. we couldn’t make hot water. There was no tea, no coffee, no snacks of any kind, no glass, no spoons/forks in the room. I will never stay at this hotel again. And will not recommend it to anyone! Definitely not worth the money...
