This is right in the middle of scenic Oslo. 10 minute walk from train station. Nice staff. Fine 1899 building. Excellent breakfast buffet. Fast free wifi. No air conditioning usually not an issue but was warm during unusually hot July. We will stay again

The hotel is in a great neighborhood and close to lots of attractions and shopping. Most front desk staff were extremely helpful except for one who was extremely unprofessional and unwelcoming, hence the "3"
