Great central location to explore Oslo. We had 2 rooms, the one was more spacious than the other so worth checking room types when booking. Beds and pillows were comfortable and I liked the wall mural above the bed. Service was friendly and breakfast buffet was extensive and very good.

We stayed as a family of three for 2 nights whilst on holiday in Oslo. First impressions were not good, reception was dirty and the male receptionist was rude and unfriendly. Lift was dirty and so were the corridors.||On entering our room we were surprised by how cold the room was and how small it was. After a whole day of sightseeing we were cold and tired. My husband went to reception and they said they would higher the heating but that it was already on. The radiator was freezing. You cannot control the heating in your room, reception control it. ||Cleanliness in the room was okay but could be better. Bathroom towels were tiny. The beds were comfortable and we all had a good nights sleep. Toiletries, hairdryer and iron and ironing board are provided in the room. There are no tea and coffee making facilities. ||Breakfast was lovely and the waiting staff were very friendly and chatty.||The hotel is in a good location not far from the Royal Palace.||Have not stayed at this hotel chain before and probably wouldn't stay with them again. Too many negatives.
