눉My only gripe was that the breakfast food wasn't labelled. As I didn't want to pay over the odds for accommodation in Oslo, this was something anyone could get around with a little bit of effort - ask the staff!
눇Anker Hotel is a less-than-10-minute walk from Oslo S. Alternatively, you can board a tram or bus (2 stops) and walk the 100 metres to the hotel. A kettle is provided on request along with complimentary tea and coffee. Security is good with keycards required to activate the lifts and doors to the stairs. Heating inside the hotel and the room in particular was generous to the point that I had to switch off the heater and open my window! The heated bathroom floor provided ample warmth for the room. The bed was comfortable and the room was reasonably sized. Breakfast, which was included with the room, was enjoyable and satisfying. The bar was closed for the Christmas period but you could pop over to Anker Hostel for a pint. The staff were friendly and helpful and that made for a relaxing stay. The left luggage storage room was locked securely via remote and stickers given so bags could be identified. Tøyen is nearby for the Munch Museum and a KIWI, along with reasonably priced eateries can be found along Storgata. The same tram and bus will take you back to Oslo S and Karl Johans Gate though a walk is highly recommended. Then there was Raphael. What an exceptional and impeccable night concierge. He was very comprehensive when informing me about places to visit, transport links, museums, restaurants, dishes to try and local knowledge. Everyone else he assisted received similar superb service and it all came from the heart. Anker would do well to hold on to him.
