    Very good location in the central of city.

  • Couple
    5.8

    The hotel is located in the heart of the city...with a lot of bars and restaurants around the area...but Oslo is the most expencive city where I have been.

    The room is very small and old...

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    The location of the hotel is excellent. We booked the junior suite facing Karl Johan Gate and it was very large and comfortable.

    No parking at the hotel. The nearest Parking place is 5 min. walk from the hotel in a parking garage and is expensive. There is only one elevator that serves both the hotel guests and the maintenance. There are 2 free coffee machines and both of them were out of order.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Very well located with helpful staff. The hotel is good value, by the standards of Oslo.

    We were kept awake by the very loud disco in the next building until 3 in the morning. Staff moved us to a room higher up which was less noisy, but it was still very difficult to sleep. I would avoid the hotel at weekends in the future.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The bed was great.Great location, right in the centre of Oslo.

    It was too hot in the hotel and we wondered why (we were there in June and the heating seemed to be off)

  • Older travelers

    Location

    The noise in our room was unbearable . A large vent was located outside our window and the motor ran all night. Would not stay hear again.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Best location for a hotel at this price in Oslo.staff were very nice..

    I had booked a double room but got one with 2 beds joined together, was comfortable enough , however one large bed would be better!!

  • Couple
    3.8

    Excellent location on main street in Oslo

    Poor rooms, poor cleanliness, poor staff - unfortunately fairly typical in my experience of Best Western hotels.

  • Single
    8.2

    The location of the hotel and the breakfast - good choice and good location (on the 4th floor).

    I had some electricity problems in my room - but hotel staff was very friendly and solved (finally) the problem.

    City location

    När man är diamond medlem så brukar man få nån typ av mat kupongs rabatt. Men inte här!! Ingen information om Parking, det borde informeras när man bokar

  • Couple
    7.0

    The staff were extremely helpful. At reception, Shahzad was particularly helpful and aided us in organising ourselves around the city as well as taking time out to highlight the best parts of the city for us. Very warmly appreciated by both my wife and I.

    Dated furniture

  • Single
    5.8

    Most everything was OK.

    -The WC itself had, shall we say, clear signs of not being cleaned. The Word "sorry" was never uttered from the staff upon being informed of this. -At 11.57 there comes a knock on the door, just as i was about to leave the room, "sir, why haven't you checked out yet?" Very uneccesary. Heavy vibration from the ventiation system. Almost like on a large ship at sea, I happen to like ships, so it didn't destry my sleep.

  • Couple
    7.4

    Excellent central location - close to museums, shopping, and food. Complimentary breakfast was fine.

    Being right on Karl Johan Gate, and above a bar, our room was very noisy at night. The windows don't provide much soundproofing.

  • Single
    5.4

    Situated in the centre of Oslo, so easy to see the city center and close the trainstations

    This hotel should have been renevated some years ago, bit worn out and outdated. Noisy area. Hotel room was fairly small and TV was screwed to the wall next to the bed so no visible when laying in bed!?

  • Older travelers
    4.4

    It is a rather rundown hotel with a nice fasade, but aged facilities inside, which are poorly maintained. The pipes sing. You can also hear clearly the next rooms conversations. Breakfast quality is poor. The hotel has no restaurant for lunch or diner. Some employees are reather rude. It is advertised as an art gallery, but it is really a tasteless collection of unorganized paintings, most of them cheap copies. In general, it is too expensive for the service you get.
