I have stayed at this hotel for the past 5 years when making regular work visits to Oslo. The building is gracious and interesting and the many rooms I have stayed in are all different. The standard of rooms is good - size varies, and location matters (I am VERY sensitive to noise), but it's a very good medium sized... More

The hotel is situated perfectly, right in the center, close to everything - train staition, unversity campus, shopping and restaurant streets, buses and trams stops, park, waterfront, city hall, music hall, theater, etc. The building is old and beautiful with a lot of character. The breakfast is brilliant, also for people with allergies and vegetarians. The rooms are very small... More

This hotel used to be in the Rica chain. Unfortunately it has taken a turn towards the Scandic way of running the hotels. Low quality, but still not cheap. This room was tiny, run down, cold and as always in Scandic with a minimum of amenities. It is a small hotel with narrow hallways and small rooms in need of... More

The hotel is centrally located. The personnel were very helpful and it was nice and clean. The only negative is that we ordered a family room, but there is no way that the room we got could be considered that. It was a normal room with an extra cot.

As others have noted, the location is excellent. I was here on business because of the university next door, so it was particularly good, but also nice in the evening -- easy walking distance to downtown and the harbor. The building is oldish, with zigzagging hallways, but that's just what gives the place its atmosphere. On the downside, there's just... More
