    Very good

    Excellent location, clean rooms, modern conceptual design, silent.

    Extremely small shower space (smaller than 1m2), the breakfast could have been better.

    Very good

    Good breakfast, hotel has a modern look-and-feel.

    I had a room without curtains seeing out on the lobby, did not feel confortable. Also shower did not function in the beginning, and lightning system very complex.

    Superb

    The customer service from the reception and bar staff. They were extremely helpful and nothng was too much trouble

    My 2nd night had two single quilts instead of a double, the room was a little on the cool side and I couldn't find any heating controls. I used the supplied electric heater for a short while to compensate which was fine

    Superb

    We booked for 3 nights after a trip of 10 days over a part of Norway! It was a relaxing,pleasant stay,a good,well designed room,a tasty breakfast and a great location for the city center!

  • 6.2
    Good

    It was located very close to Karl johans gate, and in easy walking distance of Akker brygge. Staff were friendly and the breakfast buffet was good.

    We were told our room was ready when we arrived, an hour and a hal after we should have been able to check in. On the plus side the receptionist upgraded our room so that we didnt have to wait. However the room we got was a bit dirty.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    Definitely, the modern design and the breakfast buffet (very well served by the hotel personnel)

    I unsuccesfully tried to book some flowers and drinks by email but the replies from the perosnnel of the hotel where not responsive enough.
