Prós: Location was perfect for us, right in the middle of the city, across street from subway and bus. Took train from airport which dropped us at hotel doorstep. Hotel staff was delightful, booked great seats for opera at new opera house. Rest. in hotel great.
Contras: Buy a Oslo Pass to get into all museums and all public transport.
Prós: We were supposed to stay at the Apotek Hote. We arrived early in the morning from an overnight flight from Seattle. The staff was so kind and got us into a room right away at the Bristol Hotel next door. They also wanted us to have a quieter room because of the Pride Celebration that week-end. Loved the location and the kindness of the staff, because I ask a lot of questions. Chris
Prós: The breakfast buffet was excellent. Room was well-appointed with wood floors and very nice furniture. Everyone we dealt with on staff was thoroughly professional. The lobby was impressive.
Contras: There are a lot of rooms and the hallways all look the same, as do the rooms. No big problem, but if you're looking for somewhere with period charm, you'll be let down.
Prós: Location was convenient and quiet. A bit away from the city center but easy bus/tram ride away. Breakfast was good. I found the little shower enclosure ingenious. Shows you can have a functional bathroom in about 20 square feet. Staff was helpful
Contras: Room was pretty small, but probably in line with other Scandinavian hotels.
Prós: Rooms were very comfortable with helpful staff. The breakfast was a nice variety of foods.
Prós: friendly staff
Contras: hypocritical staff
Prós: Os quartos eram muito confortáveis com uma equipe atenciosa. O café da manhã tinha uma boa variedade de alimentos.
Prós: Clean, friendly staff, great WiFi, perfect location across from train station and main tourist road (Karl Johan Gate), close to many tourist attractions, room has a minimalist desk and chair for laptop/writing/books, etc. Was satisfied with my stay - being next to the train station and main subway station is perfect for getting in and out of Oslo as well as exploring the city by public transportation (and walking everywhere by foot is easy, too).
Contras: In less expensive cities could get more for your money (but Oslo is very expensive in general). Rooms are small but not too small for those just wanting a place to sleep. Very few amenities (e.g. no daily room service except for a fee, no breakfast, etc.).
Prós: Centrally located and large high quality room in a lovely old building.
Contras: We had a room on the road which was a bit noisy at chucking out time so not the best nights sleep
Prós: Everything is clean. Recent fresh renovation has the Hostel/Hotel looking tip top from bottom to top. Beautiful lounge. Kitchen. Sheets and towels are Included. Sink in room. Lockers in room (Bring own lock). Seperate room for showers and toilets, keeping your shower low key. Everything was wonderful.
Contras: The price.
Prós: I liked the standard of cleanliness.
The breakfast buffet in the morning.
The access to a washer AND dryer.
The proximity to attractions.
The outside architecture.
The separate dorms.
The small size of the dorms.
The option to have ensuite dorms.
Contras: The stark white halls
That the lights were always bright in the hallways at night when others came into the room.
Contras: Twelve strangers in a small cramped space. One chair in the room with practically no place to sit even to put your shoes on. Not sure what all the rave reviews are about. Cleanliness is average for a hostel. Received polite service from one representative, the other could not have cared less if he was there or not. Free Internet did not work for me but I did not pursue the issue to fix it and I noticed others were using it. Average breakfast.
Contras: We arrived after being on the road for 10 hours with a confirmed reservation only to be told at 11:45pm that they had made a mistake and there weren't any rooms available for us. After charging full price to my AMEX, they never made an attempt to contact me via email or phone and tried to repeat that they would pay for a taxi to and from the other hotel property they had transferred the reservation to without my consent. I go online and see that that hotel was charging half the rate of the Vulcan. Frustrating and highly disappointed by the whole ordeal. Cherry on top: when we got to the other Scandic 20 min away, we were greeted by a bathroom what wasn't cleaned and there weren't house keeping staff around until morning. Wouldn't recommend such an unprofessional chain if you have a choice.
Prós: The hotel is in the train station so it is extremely convenient. Go down two escalators and when you find the "hall of restaurants " walk to the end by Bella Italian and the hotel check in is right there . It takes a couple of minutes to find the entrance but so worth it. Staff was very friendly.
Prós: The Bathroomdesign
Contras: The breakfast restaurant was much too small and has a bad floorplan-design. The buffé is located in the hallway towards the restaurant, therefore it is very bad organized and you get quickly annoyed by
the other guests.
Prós: The fact that te hotel is located in the train terminal , it's very convenient for people who are arriving by train. The room however is extrmely small. My husband and I had trouble finding the space we need to set up our luggage. Similar to a couple of other hotels we stayed in other cities in Norway, there's no air conditioner and only 2 towels were provided. If you have long hair or like to take more than one shower a day, it may be a hassle. The hotel would be good for solo traveler.
Prós: The place is quite ice with a wonderful breakfast and competitive rates, but...
The hotel uses a rope style security chain on doors that is child proof.
My mother Is a strong retiree but couldn't open the contraption
She became so afraid, she pulled at it so hard, the system failed only because it is simply nailed into a thin decorative door frame.
Thank goodness no fire for those trying to get out, or any burglar who can easily break in (if he has the strength of an 85 year old.
Prós: Great location, within 2 blocks of central station downtown Hotel is 100% computerized- you check in and out on a terminal Very easy and efficient.
Contras: The hotel rooms are very small, like staying on a cruise ship, economy class. The rooms are very spartan with a small beds, a desk, a chair and small bathroom. Otherwise, they did provide a good wifi signal. If you don't mind clean and spartan, this hotel would be great when in Oslo.
Prós: proximity to the train station
room was spacious enough
Prós: Staff was very friendly and helpful, room was clean, quiet, comfortable. Free laundry ( need your own detergent and a 20 kroner coin which you get back). Gym looked decent too. I would defibitely return.
Prós: How well the staff treated our children and their incredible breakfast!
Contras: They do not provide any shuttle service from the metro. Oslo has a very convenient metro system so we did not rent a car. The front desk told me it was a short walk from the metro. It was a tough up hill walk with our luggage and family.
Prós: My sister and I were so surprised that we got a good deal on such a cool hotel! It's a very nice boutique hotel that made us feel very comfortable. The floor in the bathroom is heated, the decor is very fresh and hip, and the bar and cafe downstairs are one of the many great places to eat in the neighborhood. I highly recommend staying here!
The one thing I would say is don't get breakfast delivered, it's not worth the money for what you get.
Contras: The one thing I would say is don't get breakfast delivered, it's not worth the money for what you get. It's mostly bread and some meat delivered to your door, not a hot breakfast, and you can find a better or comparable deal elsewhere, even in the cafe right downstairs.
Also, while the Sentrum is a short bus ride/30 minute walk away, Frogner is a more expensive area if you're looking for shopping.
Contras: Chuveiro muito pequeno.
