“Overpriced Business light Hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

Hotel Gyldenløve is part of the Thon Hotels that vary quite a lot. This particular one is good if you have business in this part of town (not many hotels in that area). However, very small rooms with an akward decoration (the wash-fosset is located outside of the bathroom....?).

Thon has tried to make a basic Business Light hotel with no frills - this is fair enough if the basics were ok and were in mint condition and clean - they are not. Secondly then the rates should reflect this - which they don't! You can find much nicer hotels at the same price all over the city.

Biggest minus for me personally are the single beds, which are very small and very uncomfortable - my back is not build for this kind of discount bed.

Breakfast is ok - above par.
Service is ok - efficient.

Other than that not much to highlight for this hotel - very basic, very standard. Much better choices elsewhere at same rates.

Dear guest, thank you for taking the time to evaluate your stay at Thon Hotel Gyldenløve! We are happy to see that the location of our hotel in the west of Oslo suited your purposes. However, it is a pity that you felt the facilities were "very basic, very standard" and did not meet your expectations. Thon Hotel Gyldenløve is ment to be a urban hotel decorated in minimalistic, Skandinavian design that offers a comfortable stay in Oslo. We are pleased that both the breakfast and the service of our staff did meet your expectations and would be happy to be able to welcoming you again in the future!

If you like living very closeby the citycenter this is'nt the hotel for you. But, it's only a 10-15 minutes walk downtown, abit stressfull when you've been out.

Its a designhotel and its very sweet! I reccomend it!

This hotel is a level above backpacking. There is no lobby to speak of and the rooms are really small. It does not deliver what is promised in room descriptions. When I pointed this out I was upgraded to a larger room that was fine, but the overall feeling of this hotel is lacking. The service was fine and so was the location.

Good quality, clean hotel in a good location. The room was a decent size (larger than the equivalent in many other European cities), modern with a nice ensuite shower/toilet. Staff were friendly, breakfast very good with selection of cold continental style breakfast, cereals as well as sausages and bacon. Was here for business, and would definitely stay again.

This is a modern, efficient hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was extremely small but functional. It's very close to Vigeland Park which is the highlight of Olso.
