Everyone is different and everyone can have different experiences, this is just my opinion and my opinion alone. Since 214 I have essentially lived in hotels all across the world, around 500 different hotels, ranging from 5 star luxury to downright disgusting. As I am an avid user of TA, I hope this review helps.
5 = Excellent, exceptional in every aspect
4 = Very good
3 = OK, standard against most hotels
2 = Not very good, needs to be better than this

Total out of 5:
Summary: Overall fairly average, but you get what you pay for. Aspects of it were great, like wi-fi, the water pressure and the hot water, incredible! and the breakfast service, amazing. But let down by pokey rooms, very ordinary beds and linens and the cost of F&B is astronomical, especially when you have no nearby outside choices. less
OsloAirport, Resepsjonssjef at Best Western Oslo Airport Hotell, responded to this review
Thank you for such an extensive review! It's not every day we come across someone who is this thorough in their reviewing, and we love it!
This is one of our most important tools we use to strive for greatness, and this one certainly helps.
We are so happy that you enjoyed our breakfast, wi-fi and our staff.
We will look into the other aspects you mentioned that was not that great, and we have just brought in over 100 new beds, so it was quite unfortunate that you didn't get into one of those.
We sincerely hope to see you back with us sometime in the future, and hopefully we have improved in several areas that you have mentioned in your review.
The team at Best Western Oslo Airport Hotell.
