Terrible stay with no air condition
Worst night I’ve ever had at a hotel. My room was on the 6th floor and was super small. It could barley fit a queen size bed. The main problem was that there was no air condition in the room and they did not have an extra fan for me so it was a sleepless night. I would not recommend this hotel at all. The staff just suggested to open the window which was not safe at all because a big window with no safety strap is not okay. I had the window open but the noise from the street and the warmth made it impossible to sleep.

God beliggenhet på hotellet. Vanskelig med parkering da parkeringshus i nærheten var stengt. Dårlig utsikt fra rommet. Ellers grei frokost og hyggelig betjening. Ingen kjøleskap på rommet.

Highly recommended
Rooms were basic but very comfortable, especially the bedding - got consecutive good nights sleep, aided by blackout curtains. Excellent buffet breakfast; great quality and selection. Very tasty! And reception staff were so helpful, allowing me to store my luggage both on day of arrival and departure. Really convenient location for access to all the sights and a metro station very close. Bonus was not being in a street with trams running along, so nice and quiet. Highly recommend this hotel and I’d stay again without hesitation.
