Very central location with great public transportation close by (buses, trams and Main train station). The room was nice and clean. It is a self service hotel, so most check in / check out is automated.

It wasn't too noisy and was easy to walk around to find restaurants close by.

I found this facility at a good rate. Once I booked, I got email informing that it was a self check-in/check-out hotel. Therefore, I needed to prepare a credit card with pin number which I had never used PIN before. We arrived early in the morning (around 7 am) and the room was available right away. Keyvcards were issued automatically. We were able to freshen up before geting out to visit several places in Oslo. There was no room cleaning service during our 2 day stay but there was an office that we can request for hair dryer, new towels, etc. The room was basic and clean. There was ample space to put our things. However, there was quite a small space to open up my large luggage. Check out process was also easy.

Hi asdaSap!

Thanks for your kind feedback on our hotel!

We just love reading feedback from guests that seems to understand and appreciate our concept! We really do our best to offer a simple and modern solution at what we consider to be a fair rate, so when our guests feel we offer them just that - we are nothing but smiles.

We do agree that some of our rooms are small, and in particular the rooms that are categorized as just that. It is however only a small fee to upgrade to one of our standard rooms!

Thanks again for your recommendation, and we do hope to see you again!

Best wishes,
Citybox Oslo

Just 10mins walk to Oslo Central Station. Very clean room and toilet. The room even had a balcony to enjoy a cup of tea and watch the city. There is a coffee vending machine at the ground floor and the hotel is connected to a cafe/pizzaria if you don't want to go out for food.

Very centrally located hotel, close to the Oslo main train station. The first night we had a room facing the street and it was very loud. As it was very hot and the place doesnt have AC we had to sleep with the windows open and couldnt really sleep because of the noise. The next night we asked to be moved to a different room and the staff put us in a very quiet courtyard facing room and that was great. Rooms are basic but perfect for a short city break.

Very happy to read we could help you under your stay with us. We do agree that it has been very hot here this summer. We haven't had these temperatures since 1901 actually :)

Thanks again for your recommendation, and we do hope to see you again!

I stayed with my two sons in a family room - double bed and a bunk bed, for two nights. The location is very convenient, close to the main railway station (Oslo S), but there was some noise at night from nearby bars/cafes. Rooms are double glazed, but it was very hot at night so keeping the window closed would have been uncomfortable.

Facilities in the rooms are limited (no TV, no kettle, hanging space for clothes only), but there is a communal space downstairs with a shared fridge and kitchen where you can make hot drinks or buy them from a vending machine. Also an area where you can prepare food (including a microwave oven) - disposable plates, cups and cutlery and seating for a family to eat.

This saves a lot on eating out if you are on a budget. There is a decent convenience store about a block from the hotel, or there is a restaurant attached that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers a 10% discount for hotel guests.

Room Tip: Rooms on a higher floor (7 or 6) may be quieter.

Hi Nick R!

Thanks for your kind review of our hotel!

We are really sorry to hear it was noisy outside. Unfortunately this is difficult for us to control, as we are located in the city center.

Anyway, very glad to read that you liked our location and lobby facilities :)

Thanks again for your feedback, and we do hope to see you again!

Best wishes,
Citybox Oslo
