Good things: Perfect location. Glitzy/modern. Fantastic bfast. Less good: (1) Fire alarm went off in the middle of the night. The announcement over the loudspeaker was made only in Norwegian so non-natives were left wondering if it was real and what to do. After going to the lobby and waiting about 40 min, a staff member walking by offhandedly mentioned that it was safe to return to our rooms. But there was no general announcement. (2) no early check-in. (3) my room was very noisy, I think from music in the bar, which was many floors below my room.
sheets were rough. lights and thermostat were difficult to figure out, i heard others discussing same at breakfast. maybe a printed tutorial card on the wall would be useful. floor texture? felt dirty/sandy. rugs should have been bigger when getting out of bed, or switch sides of bed one was round one was square. I prefer carpet. No phone in room. rely on cell phones? we didn't have cell service when travelling just wifi -- also needed a cell to just order a cab? staff used there number for us. no phone in room for wake up call or to call front desk for anything? floors got wet in bathroom around shower area. I did like the bedding comforter very much and would like to know where to get one?
As first time visitors to Oslo, we loved the central location that made it easy to find our way around and back home each day. The decor was modern yet inviting. Breakfast was outstanding, but we also appreciated the afternoon sweets at 3 and the option to grab a quiet dinner (included in the price, tho drinks and extras were offered for purchase) after a long day of roaming around the city, which we did 2 of our 4 days there. If the fare offered that evening was not to taste, there were several restaurants housed in the Folketeateret.
It is conveniently located, immaculately clean, very economical and the bed was excellent. Every staff person I encountered was both friendly and helpful. My experience was excellent and I will stay here again!
