“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2011

During booking, the hotel looked expensive but with the dinner and breakfasts thrown in, the hotel is definitely value for money. Dinner spread is not extravagant but adequate for a simple meal.

The room we had was extremely small as compared to our previous experiences in other hotels. We find the the double bed for 2 people narrow. Shower cubicle hardly allows one any space to move. With regards to the room door, it will only lock itself after a certain time. Thus, though there is a security access to your respective floors from the lift, anyone can also access to your floors by staircase. Just take note not to walk away from door before you hear the click.

However, with the good location, friendly hotel staff and value for money, I will not hesitate to choose this hotel again

I stayed at this hotel for business and August. The hotel was clean, the staff were friendly and very helpful and the breakfast buffet was very, very good. It even catered for people with hopeless allergies such as myself (gluten AND lactose). The hotel also had a light dinner included in the price (bread, soup, etc), which would have been fantastic for those without allergies.

With regards to the rooms, it seems essential to request a room towards the back if you´re a light sleeper such as myself. At first I was given a room facing the road and I could pretty much hear whole conversations despite being on the fourth floor. The staff went out of their way to find me another room, and thankfully I got a full nights sleep. The rooms I saw were both quite basic, but more than adequate for a quick stay.

I would definitely stay here again. Most of the other hotels I have seen in Oslo for around the same price (Thon-chain) have been aweful.

Room Tip: Request a room towards the back if you need a good nights sleep!

we picked this hotel for the location, price and the convenience of the free dinner. the staff was very kind and updated our book early discount from 10% to 20% after a change in the offer post-booking. The room was not as small as I thought it would be based on the other reviews. The breakfast was served in the restaurant and it had a good selection and delicious croissants. Dinner, on the other hand, was served in a room upstairs and it mainly consisted of a green salad, cold cuts, soup and a warm entree. The entree and soup were definitely microwaved! The bread it seems to be bought frozen and then warmed in the oven and one night it wasn't completely warmed up and the middle was very frozen, but the woman in charge of dinner just ignored it. Also, the quality of the food and the service is highly dependent on which woman is in charge of dinner.

We stayed at the Clarion Collection for one night. The hotel is conveniently located for all downtown attractions, just a short walk to the central station, public transport and the main street. We were first given a room whose door couldn't be closed and therefore the front desk immediately changed our room. The room was quite small but the bathroom was very spacious.
The buffet breakfast in the morning was great. The hotel also offers a light complimentary buffet dinner in the evening. Even if we didn't eat in, we thought this to be a very nice touch in a very expensive city like Oslo. During the afternoon tea and cookies are offered free of charged.
All in all a very positive experience and we would gladly go back. The price is a bit high (> 1300 NOK per night), but you don't get cheap accomodation in Oslo at all.

Fast and helpful communication via email and while being there. Nice, clean room and very good breakfast. The hotel is very located in the city center and it's no problem to reach anything by feet: Harbour, central station, Colorline-ferry to Kiel, Vigeland Parken aso.

Can't say anything about the dinner, because we had dinner in the city, but it's a nice extra to have that included in an expensive city like Oslo.

When we should be in Oslo again, that would be the hotel of our choice.
