Good value for money
I was a bit turned off by the negative reviews left by some of the other hotels.com reviewers. I booked the hotel anyway because it was close to my client's location. I was quite pleased and would stay there again. Professional and efficient staff. Spacious room. Easy access to downtown Oslo, just 8 minutes walk to T-Bane station + 10 minutes to center, and trains run every 3-5 minutes (and they are cheap for me, >65). Good internet connection.
