In overall it was okay, after a late check-in I took a shower in the morning but the shower was clogged and I couldn’t take a shower. I informed reception and they fixed while I was away.

Central location
The hotel was very centrally located to access Central Oslo's major sites, like the Royal Palace, Aker Brygge, and Karl Johans Gate. We liked that our room had a balcony, even though the view was nothing special. Wifi signal was weak and sporadic. Breakfast was excellent.

Spacious room, old style building, but clean and cozy. Had an iron press as a bonus in the room and a fridge for own use.

6/10 Good

Fine, but mediocre
It was okey. I realize this is corona times, but i dident feel they had many creative ways to solve issues related to that. The breakfast was very simple and more or less identical each day. The staff was very friendly, polite and professional, but there was a certain "mood" to everything. Very somber! The staff was the best part of the experience. The hotel itself was a little old fashioned i thought. No climate control in the room. Had to use wall mounted ovens that had to be turned up and down to keep a good temperature. Got real hot at night and had to get up to adjust. No real nightstand, and generally a strange layout for the room. The bed slid away from the headboard at night, the TV was small, the desk was small, the sockets where weirdly placed, and other small things made this a very OK experience. Oh, and the wifi sucked. My 4G phone service was 3 times faster...

Good location, good breakfast
Good location, good breakfast--buffet was somewhat reduced compared to the usual, pre-covid selection--still, no one need leave their table feeling hungry! Quiet room as requested. I'll be back.

As everyone has said before. Good location+price. Great Breakfast,minus the awful fried eggs. Rooms are good, dependant though on what you get. There is a bar...but it is not a social bar,no beer pumps,and no one in the fact the fridges are it's not a Bar!! Reception....v.Good. Rooms clean,though corridors need cleaning,as does the lift floor. Dated,needs a spruce up
