Stayed for two nights in a single occupancy room (with shared bathroom) as a solo traveller. Was pleasantly surprised by the excellent central location - everything is within walking distance! - and the condition of the room, which was small but very cosy and clean. All staff were very friendly and helpful. It perfectly suited my needs for this trip...

We were here for 3 days in September. Walking distance to Vigeland and central Oslo. Clean, great breakfast and reasonably priced (considering the overall expense of Norway). Internet was a little spotty. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Our room was on the top floor, which meant a climb from the front door of about 50 steps as the house has very high ceilings. The owner? helped us with our luggage, but I probably would have requested a lower floor room if I had known there were no elevators. The breakfast room was...

This cosy, clean, luminous b&b charmed us from the very beginning. It's at close walking distance to the centre of Oslo, in an old perfectly restructured house, under our windows a small flowery garden. Breakfast is great, smoked salmon, different kinds of cheese and ham, fresh fruit, obviously breads, cereals and whatever you need. Staff extremely nice, prices very convenient

Ellingsens Pensjonat B&B is four or five tram spots from the central train station and easy walking distance to the waterfront, Royal Palace gardens, Vigeland gardens and lots of museums. It appeared to us to be in a residential area with lovely 3 storey homes and strips of fashionable shops and restaurants/pubs/bars. Room 205 included a balcony with table and...

I found this to be a really clean hotel with stylish rooms with an excellent location. It's close to a few different tram lines and a major metro station yet still walking distance from the city centre. The breakfast was good but the WiFi was patchy at times.

Thank you for a wonderful stay while I was in Oslo this weekend! This was a fab base for me as I explored Oslo with friends staying elsewhere. It was a great place to get around the city easily. The staff went above and beyond to help me before I arrived, offering advice on how to get there from Rygge...

Room was comfortable on second floor overlooking the garden. Beware the somewhat narrow stairs with heavy bags! Breakfast was plentiful and continually replenished. Reception was helpful and arrangements for keys for late arrival were simple. There is a tram stop 100m away but it is only 15 minutes walk to the centre and to the statue park in the other...
