    Pleasant stay

    Location was great, with nearby amenities around. Check in and out was Easy, although the rooms are abit small, but comfy. There was an area with entertainment and vending machines at the ground floor which was good. Overall a pleasant stay

    Satisifed with Simple Basic Room

    We liked the concept of the hotel with vending machine, resting corners and meeting rooms at ground floor. The room is basic and hotel is located walking distance to the shopping street. What we dislike: 1) We have difficulty doing self check-in. The booking ref no from did not work, and there was no other emails for check-in. Therefore, we have to call the receptionist to assist us. 2) The basin was pretty small, therefore we can only put very limited toiletries.

    Check-in and out was quick and easy via the automated kiosk. Large common area for guests to relax or chill. Room was small with basic amenities, reasonable for the price we paid for.

  • 4.0.Fair

    One step up from a dormitory but way below the standards of a hotel. There is no human interaction during check in or check out. If you need some assistance, you can press the bell to call the staff. Check in was a hassle as you need to insert a booking reference. But this reference is not the expedia confirmation or booking code. It is a code sent by the hotel which may have gone to your junk. Towels and sheets were not changed, and there are no kettles, hairdryer, cups, or anything in the room. You have to go to the lobby or ask the staff to get you one.

    Located in the Oslo City Center, 4 mins away from the Central Station and 5 mins to Opera house, Citybox Oslo is simply great, convenient and comfortable place. I booked the best room on the top floor with a great view of Oslo city, and I regret that I’ve only booked for a night, should have stayed longer if the room is this great! Would love to come back for longer staying in the near future 😊

    As advertise, it is a no frills hotel. Just a bed, a desk and a toilet for you. Just the basic stuff for your stay. Room was too cold for me and staff provided a mini heater in addition to the wall heater in the room.

    Excellent hotel and good service!

    This is truly the nearest thing you can get to a home away from home.. and the hospitality is just the best in a busy world when you long away from your home place. I honestly feel like I was coming home and some one was ready to take care of me after a long and busy ride to my destination in Oslo. I was not in doubt one second that the crew knew what is needed for a trip to this town no matter what you plan to do this hotel will help you navigate and to settle down and enjoy your trip. Thanks for sharing and caring you truly deserve the best report. 👌
