I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks in January 2011. This hotel in located on a very quiet hill outside Oslo, and if you get a fjord view room you will be amazed. The views are the best in Oslo, no matter what the weather. I was lucky to be upgraded to a fjord view room, and if was spacious and well equipped. The restaurant is one of the finest in Oslo, and the breakfast the best I've had in Norway. However the hotel is, in my opinion, more interested in conference groups than leisure travellers and the staff, though helpful, were overworked. Often I had to wait at reception for over 15 minutes when I had a query only to give up because the few staff on duty were dealing with a large conference. the hotel is very expensive, even for Norway, and I would recommend staying at a more central hotel and taking advantage of the great public transport if you want to ski.
