Our 11th floor room (the property has a lift) had a small shower, flat screen TV and good wifi. A good breakfast was included. The central location is ok with the property being ~15 minute walk from both the central bus and the train station. We expected more for 1800 NOK / 197€.

I stayed at Anker Hotel for a solo city break, so was looking for simple, budget accommodation in a good location. Anker Hotel ticked all these boxes. The hotel is a 10 min walk or 3 min tram ride from Oslo central station. It is clean, warm and has hot showers with good water pressure and my room had a... More

Very friendly staff, free wifi that has excellent reception on 13th floor! Breakfast buffet with rich varieties of food and drink selection. Clean and comfortable. Only downside is the high parking fee...250 kr for 24hrs! I had to rent a car due to my out of town travel where trains don't go but that came with a cost of parking.... More

This hotel, although lacking most qualities needed in the hospitality industry, cost the same as most comparable hotels in Oslo, thus is is truly not worth what you pay. The receptionist was neither knowledgeable, hospital or polite. The rooms, though clean, are not ideal for a good nights sleep since all noise from the hallways enter the room. Pick some... More

I staid there for two nights when all the other hotels in Oslo were full. This could be a OK budget hotel hadn't the hotel used the situation and hiked up their prices for their few rooms left. I have added a picture of the bed in my room that I was met with when I arrived back from work... More

Decent size rooms, decent breakfast but lots of people there so it got crowded. Not a bad location but not super central either. Close to public transport.The wifi was probably the worst I've ever experienced at a hotel. My tip would be to request a room that isn't right at the end of the hallway

Anker Property is only 10 minutes' stroll from bustling Karl Johan and the heart of the city, allowing easy access to the Central Station and Oslo's shops and restaurants. Situated just outside the property you will find bus and tram stops and a taxi rank.
