    Superb

    Staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was good (not just muffins and cereal) and the room was clean. Overall it was a good experience!

    They charged us double, but it was just a mistake and when I pointed it out they fixed it right away.

    Near the Center. Good breakfast. And the staff of the Restaurant are very friendly.

    I payed in cash when check in, and after that, they asked me for extra payment refundable when check out in 500 Nok. And of course the pay tv. I have been in a Thon Hotel in Bergen the 4 days before and I have been very pleased.

    Good

    The free wireless internet is very good and handy. It is very close to city center, in a nice area, close to public transport, shops, restaurants. The staff is very friendly and helpfull.

    The price is too high for the quality you get. Breakfast is compared with other hotels not good. Only one kind of bread available, no fruit. Breakfast is untill 11, but at 9 they did not have yoghurt anymore (although they had in their fridge, but I could not get one). They charged me too much then I was told to pay for, they sorted it out, but it was a huge mess. My room was not clean, very dirty windows, not cleanded once the 5 nights I stayed. Bathroom was renoved: I had a shower: whole bathroom get wet when you shower

    Convenient location near conference hotel and airport bus terminus.

    Seemed expensive for 3* standard, but perhaps not by Oslo standards.

    The price, but it's not really the hotel's fault that it's in Norway!

    Centric, quite close to the metro and the central station, clean, good breakfast, free Wi-Fi.

    I had a big problem with this hotel and I'm still having it. When I was checking in, the girl at the reception withdrew 2000 nok from my credit card (although the total room price was only 1520 nok), as she explained, as a garantee for if I take something from the minibar. When I was checking out, I was said that my 480 nok will be returned to my credit card. Two weeks have passed and I haven't got my money back.

    Good

    The location of the hotel is perfect. It is located in a quiet area but on walking distant to the main tourist spots.

    Although small children till 5 would be free of charge while using the existing beds, they tried to let us pay an additional 150 nok per night. Furthermore the room temperature can not be controlled in the room itself. This did result in freezing draft alternating with tropical heat in the same night.

    Reasonable price for the location compared to other hotels in city centre.

    Tram outside window

    Fabulous

    Value for money and central location.

    One staff member on check out was rude and not competent to carry out this function.

    The faboulous breakfast

    The mattresses could have been a bit more substantial.

    Fabulous

    the coffee/ hot chocolate/ hot tea dispenser and two or three computers available for guest. Very nice of them :-) the hot drinks help us keep abit of warm in the cold weather on our way out. Breakfast was good!

    most of time, so far we experience hotel door lock once close. but this hotel's doesn't. Both good and bad, cos if we had not realised that, we would have left the door unlock when we go out.
