Stayed for a couple of nights. Clean & practical. Front Desk staff have no idea what a smile is. They are not hospitality people. There was one guy that worked the desk, he was knowledgeable and helpful on the other hand the 2 blondes absolutely useless and did not care one bit about the hotel guest. The room was adequate,...

Had an IT conference and company booked me in at the Anker hotel. It was good value for the money, but don’t expect all the bells and whistles. Rooms were clean, staff were pleasant enough. Good for those on a budget, but for those who want the upmost in luxury this is probably not your place.

The hotel is really close to Oslo S central station. You can go on foot and it takes around 10 minutes. If you want to go by bus or tram, it is around the corner, close to Hausmannsgate station. I thought the neighborhood was kinda scary in the first night, but I hope this was just a bad impression. The...

Stayed here many times. Location is very good. 10 minutes walk from city center. Once had problem with not cleaned room, once I found man sleeping in the room I just got. A few times got room with sewage system problems and stinking horribly. Once got burned kettle with food residues inside. Once got smoky room. But staff is quite...

The Anker Hotel was an excellent choice for our 5 night stay in Oslo. Located only 2 stops from Oslo Central Station via tram (and only a 10 minute walk in all) it offers an excellent base and location for easy access to the City centre as well as a great selection of places to eat and drink locally (the...

This is a fairly basic hotel but quite acceptable. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable and of adequate size. There was a cherry-picker parked outside our window the first night, which was a little disconcerting... Breakfast was nothing special but there was plenty of it, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It's not in one...

The hotel is probably best described as average. On the one hand, rooms are fairly decent -- not terribly big but undoubtedly clean and well-maintained. On the other hand, the standard of a bar as well as a dining area leaves a lot to be desired. While both have rather cold interiors, the latter seems particularly uninviting in the mornings,...

Room was clean and tidy, staff helpful, breakfast was fine............no frills but no ultra high prices either. Easy to walk to main shopping areas or Trykk/Tram stop almost outside. Would use again.

Stayed one night here recently. The hotel is conveniently located. 15 minutes walk will take you to the main shopping street. We were given a room in the renovated part of the hotel, according to the staff, but I'd have thought it was the old. Our view was overlooking some dumpsters. Our bed request was unable to be met, breakfast...
