Our room was large and included a kitchen, a dishwasher (for our two cups and two glasses), a washing machine, and a window facing Kjølberggata. The tv set was crap, the standing fan didn't work and we sure would have loved to have a nightstand. But the bed was good and the room was quiet even though there was a music festival (Øyafestivalen) going on just up the street. And there was coffee ready for us to make when we woke up!
I agree with those who have written that the reception area is not a welcoming place, and some members of the staff could need a class in How to act friendly when you really don't care.
About the area: Tøyen is a nice, worndown neighbourhood with several new restaurants and bars that look like good places to visit.More
