Gabelsgate 16, Oslo, Norway
"You may come to experience, as we did, the breakfast- and evening meal- buffet out of food, sticky buffet floors, juice machines out of juice, spilled food and drinks onto the buffet (and more) without the staff tending to it. A snack on the floor of your hotel room may compensate for the lack of a hot evening meal as promised in the hotel advertising, but then again maybe not. However, if you enjoy a tomato-sauce based fish stew, there will be ample for you, as few others do. No vegetarian/vegan hot meal options for neither morning nor evening. How about a shower that also showers the whole bathroom? After which you can dry off with a brown-stained towel.. No towel provided for the wet and slippery floor, though. And of course; no complementary toiletries in this hotel. Note that upper-level staff do not wear the assigned face mask in the buffet-area nor otherwise. Guests have to provide their own masks or buy it at the reception although there's no information preparing guests for this. If you hang the 'Do not disturb' sign on your door chances are the hotel-room telephone will ring off the hook the whole day as the receptionist will want to know what you mean by that. If you cannot answer the phone because you're in an online meeting and thus must not be disturbed, it will be to no avail to turn the sign to 'please, clean my room' the next day as you were too busy to answer the phone the previous day about the 'do not disturb' sign pertaining to that day when the sign was out. If course, if you decide to say anything non-complimentary about any of this the hotel manager willingly regrets your perception of it all. Enjoy your stay somewhere else."
"We stayed one night, in a rather small double room. The room was just barely large enough to fit the bed with enough room to walk around, and felt rather cramped. I banged my head both in the (enormous!!) ceiling lamp and the slanting roof on more than one occasion, and the door hit the suitcase stand when opened. The bed was comfortable, but it seemed to be no ventilation (due to Covid??), as the room got seriously warm during the night. This was late September, so not warm enough at night outside to explain for this. The bathroom was also very small, and started to show some wear, as a few of the tiles were cracking and chipping, and the magnetic lock on the bathroom door was broken, so it didn't stay shut. Breakfast was good enough, the only thing I'm used to finding in most hotel breakfasts that I didn't find here was fried eggs. There was enough variety, and fresh food, so enjoyed breakfast. We also had an evening meal included, but since we were mainly in Oslo to have dinner at a nearby restaurant, we didn't try this. All in all a pretty average hotel. A bit less than we expected, to be honest, as the hotel looked a bit above average on the hotel site."
"After spending three nights in Oslo, I am absolutely charmed by this special city. Very functional hotel, very nicely done, well decorated and appointed, kept clean and cosy. Located in a very quiet and residential neighborhood its a great zone, you can easily walk to wherever you wish to go, including very lovely Frogner park. Enjoyed every day there."
