Very popular for tour groups, this is an ideal location just a 2 minute walk to the train station then 2 train stops to Oslo station. Rooms are modern, with very functional bathroom and super comfy bed. Breakfast is served on Level 2 and is a sumptuous buffet. Staff were very welcoming and efficient.

This hotel is nicely located near the Skøyen station, so it's very convenient. The breakfast is exceptionally good. Rooms are comfortable. When the weather is nice, it is also very easy to walk from the hotel along the water. I've even walked all the way to Aker Brygge.
