Fair 4.0
The rooms are extremely small and it appeared as if there was pet urine on the carpeting of the hallways.
Steve, usFamily 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.
Michael, us4 night trip
Good 6.0
Middle of center but a lot of noise from outside, disco in the night and trucks very early in the morning
Marie, us1 night business trip
Very Good 8.0
Tiny Room; otherwise great!
The staff is quite friendly and helpful! The breakfast is great!The beds are comfortable! The rooms are tiny! There are very few flat surfaces to put anything, and no desk. But any more flat surfaces in that room would take away the already-too-little floor space. We managed to be reasonably comfortable, but it took a lot of effort to avoid tripping over each other. Other than the size of the room, the stay was quite pleasant.

The room could use a new carpet. It was very small. However, the location could not be better. Overall,
