It was a marvelous stay with just the right amount of everything. For Constitution Day in Oslo, it was ideal. Karl Johan's Gate is right near the palace, the central station, and many sights.

Excellent central location, great breakfast. For business use essential web access is expensive and uses a system valid per 24hrs, I did not like this approach. Staff are friendly but always very busy. Rooms are fine, not spacious, but this is a city centre! Would use again but irritated by web access and quality of access, if the property sort this out they will get more business travel
