This is in a grat location in Oslo. It is on a main street in the downtown with a beautiful park running in front of the hotel The central train station is not far away. Also the street is closed to traffic a few blocks from the hotel as you walk toward the train station so it is very pleasant to walk down.

April 2014

The hotel is under renovation. All windows are covered. No fresh air can get in. Scaffolding in front of the windows. Constant noise through the renovation work. Worst: we were not informed during the time of booking that this hotel will be a construction site by the time we stay there. I call this a betrayal. The noise from the street (disco in the neighborhood) kept on going until 4 AM. No way to get any sleep.

Centrally located.

Needs remodelling urgently. Lots of problems with equipment and rooms. No air conditioning, insufficient heating. Constant smell from restaurant. Noisy. Staff is friendly but clueless.
