My wife and I stayed two nights at BW Leto Arena in mid-June 2019. Best Western Leto Arena is a good hotel. The hotel room was clean and well-equipped. This BW hotel is located in a quiet non-commercial area out past the Gardermoen airport, so there are no restaurants nearby. The typical Norwegian buffet breakfast (included) was very good, and the half-dozen a la carte offerings on the dinner menu were also very good. The hotel is set up primarily for events (at the attached Arena) and for tour groups. The restaurant staff are stretched a bit thin when taking care of such groups along those guests who are traveling on their own, as we were.
A caveat: The hotel is not near any public transport, so those without a car who are arriving from the airport need to take the short train trip (one stop) from the airport to a station that is a couple of miles from the hotel, and need to call the hotel to alert them of your imminent arrival. The hotel will dispatch a driver to pick you up at the train station. The reverse procedure gets you back to the airport. This shuttle to and from the train station is free when checking in or out. To get this same shuttle at other times, as when going into Oslo for the day and returning to the hotel, there was a charge (~$17 pp), and you may have to wait until a driver is free. This may not be clear in the hotel’s description of the shuttle service.
