Unexpected Not So Great Experience
Hotel was under heavy remodeling during our stay. We actually walked right past the hotel when we initially arrived because what looked to be the main entrance at one time was blocked off with plywood and there was no exterior Best Western signs. It literally looked as if it was an abandoned building. Loud noises from 6am that lasted throughout the day. Was never given a heads up about the construction before our stay, which would have been nice to know ahead of time. The hotel was old so I do understand but at the same time we felt unsatisfied with our stay. Luckily one of the staff members gave us a room that was a little further away from the loud construction noise. The showers that we had in each room leaked water onto the floors. We’re thankful for the great service but as long as this construction goes on, I wouldn’t recommend staying here.

Great central location in Oslo.
The hotel is located at a great location. It’s a beautiful old building and our room was very spacious. Breakfast was fabulous.

Front desk service was great, and so was the breakfast selection! We needed a taxi called for, and the reception desk did a great job scheduling it and communicating with us. The only thing was our "courtyard view" was more of a view of a roof when you climb up onto the bed to see it.

Not worth the price, nicer less expensive hotels
For the price you do get a great location and breakfast but other than that not worth the higher price.
