    Disappointed with the receptionist on arrival at night for the check-in, Named Vencent probably good for back office work but not a receptionist in my view, No smile, have to squeeze to get info from, issued me car free card with inaccurate dates, haven't I checked would've probably got fines for the parking. Otherwise everything was just fine, a bit far from Oslo city center about 14 km.

    Difficult to get to hotel from rail station without a taxi (in a maze of motorways). Reception did not answer my phone when I phoned to ask for direction. Shuttle bus pickup from rail station would make this an attractive location.

    Best breakfast so far in Oslo

    on top of everything there was an electrical failure in the whole hotel. No hot water for shower! Complete unprofessional staff! NO EXCUSES WHAT SO EVER! No guidance for hotel guest! They left us in the dark for hours. No elevators so everyone should carry his own baggages on the evacuation stairs ( very small an fragile stairs with hundreds of guest evacuating in the same time without any guidance. A disaster was nearly avoided. When I checked out the reception guy was only interested if I took something from the minibar. We all should be reimbursed and appologised for that specific night!

    Daily in-room DIY hot drink facility: 3 sachets tea, 2 sachets coffee, 2 sachets sugar, 2 sachets sweetener, 2 small plastic spoons. Do ask Reception if you need more. Advertised room facilities include "toilet paper". Phew, that's reassuring! Expensive restaurant. (3 course meal for one typically 550-800 Nkr + any drinks.)

    Friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast exceptionally good - and outstanding value for money. Highly recommended.

    The hotel is not new, obviously and although it was easy enough to get to. (a train and a bus ride from Oslo center) the hotel should provide better info for travelers what is the best way to get to the hotel, also what to do when it's late (Night bus) where it stops in Oslo and the timetable. BTW you take the train to Sandvika togstation and then the 270 bus three stops and you are there :)

    The room was clean and surprisingly big. It had a nice big TV and great storage space. The shower was good and powerfull. The room was clean and the bed very nice. Although there was a party downstairs at one point I heard nothing so the room was very quiet. The breakfast was excelent and the surroundings lovely.

    Only stayed because convenient. Would not have picked this place otherwise. Scrambled eggs for breakfast tasted funny. Didn't eat in fear of getting sick. Staff didn't seem to care when we told them to check.

    On the road to Bergen and a convenient stop-over. Parking available.

    - No much needed icemachine was on our floor - Some breakfastfood (sausages and bacon) were hard and overcooked. Hard to chew. - The keycards easily disengage and loose function. Watch where you keep em! Avoid having them in d flap of cellphonecovers.

    -Roomy familyrooms where kids, parents & baggage can peacefully abide!:) -Loved the beds! -Breakfast provided several choices were even the kids were satisfied! "Nugatti/chocolate spread" works wonderful as a final reward for kids for eating everything else first. -Was so happy and thankful about the complying, understanding and smiling staff people! -Appreciated the instant-fresh orangejuicer-contraption. Was so refreshing to drink some fresh C-vitamin straight up!! Hehe

    Breakfast was below average, a lot of things were empty and not so much to choose from. Bathroom was really basic in design, lets the rest of the room down.

    The design of the room was very nice, well above average. The bathroom was however simple in design, but did have a bathtub which we enjoyed. Everything was very clean.

    Booking system was flawed and only acknowledged one person per room. Not the hotels fault, more bookings.com fault, however hotel honoured the booked price. Family room was same as normal room but with a sofa bed, so a little tight on space.
