My daughter and I stayed at this lovely Hotel last weekend. What a perfect location for our first visit to Oslo - positioned at the far end of Karl Johan Gate, a short walk from the station, with the Parliament building to one side and the Royal Palace a five minute walk away. The Hotel is an old building in appearance though the interior is gorgeous with interesting paintings adorning the walls and gold light fittings and mirrors. Reception staff are very pleasant and helpful. We requested a quiet room by email and were allocated a room on the fourth floor at the back of the hotel which we were pleased about.. There was a little noise from what appeared to be a heating system but it did not bother us too much. The room was very spacious with a small wardrobe and table, TV, and a mini bar and fridge. The bathroom was compact with a sink, and a walk in shower, and hairdryer. There was no kettle in our room but on the third floor there is a communal lounge area where you can help yourself to tea/coffee etc.,
Breakfast was served on the fourth floor, conveniently right next to our room! My daughter was very impressed with the provision of both soya milk and lactose free milk! There was a choice of cereals, cooked breakfast, fruit, bread etc., as well as fruit juice and tea/coffee.
You can pick up lunch in any of the deli shops near the Hotel, We found a really lovely Vegan restaurant called Norvegan round the corner from the Hotel opposite the Ice bar and we found ourselves eating there each evening during our 3 night stay.
This was our very first visit to this beautiful City, and we both agree that the choice of Hotel was perfect for us! Thank you for a most enjoyable stay! less
