Good value for money
I was a bit turned off by the negative reviews left by some of the other reviewers. I booked the hotel anyway because it was close to my client's location. I was quite pleased and would stay there again. Professional and efficient staff. Spacious room. Easy access to downtown Oslo, just 8 minutes walk to T-Bane station + 10 minutes to center, and trains run every 3-5 minutes (and they are cheap for me, >65). Good internet connection.

It’s an OK hotel
I do not recommend this hotel if you are hoping to explore downtown Oslo as it’s not in a city center. However, like in other Scandinavian countries, public transportations including buses are timely and very efficient. Front staff can be very helpful. Hotel has a restaurant but not that great. Not many restaurants nearby. Room is very small so was shower. People there were very kind and pleasant, like so many in Norway.
