      • Older travelers

        Friendly service, modern comfortable rooms, stunning views of Oslo and the sea.

        This hotel is approximately 45 minutes from Oslo city centre by public transport and quite isolated.

        The location, even if slightly remote, was beaultiful and surroundings were very calm and peaceful.

        The hotel had not updated the information regarding transportation on their website and we only found out at the airport on arrival (luckily even then) that we had to rearrange our transportation as metro would not be available due to construction work.

        The location is great! The view over Oslo is breathtaking! The morning and evening buffets are great!

        The room cleaning should definitely be improved! A lot of dust on the floor and hair from previous guests could be found in the bathroom!

        This hotel has a great view and clean air. I enjoyed staying at the hotel very much. Also, the breakfast was one of the best that I had ever had in my whoel trevel experiences.

        The location is far away from the center of Oslo. More worse, the train doesn't operate during summer time to a station near to the hotel. Instead, a bus (1b) operates the route. It was tough to reach the center of the Oslo city,.

        The location is outstanding. We received a free upgrade to a room with a fantastic view, which was a delightful bonus. The complementary breakfast was superb. Our stay at Holmenkollen gave us a perspective on Oslo which we would have not seen otherwise-- the gorgeous rural landscape so close to the city. Wonderful!

        Barely anything to worry about while staying there; the staff was very helpful and treated you well.

        Payment method advocated on Booked.net differed from payment methods offered upon arrival. We were asked to pay with a credit card or cash, while the site also suggested the allowance of the use of a debit card (Maestro)

        Very nice location. Beautiful facilities. I really enjoyed the panoramic view from the hotel. On a clear day you overlook the city of Oslo with its fiords and the whole bay. The hotel itself was very beautiful in its architecture and cleansiness. The hotel staff were very helpful. I would go again

        Maybe it is not very central so you do have to take a few buses in order to get to the centre. The transport services were very good but it did take around 30-40 minutes to reach the centre of the city

        Location, location , location. Fantastic view of the city odf Oslo. No other reason for satying in this hotel. My suggestion would be the hotel runs a regular shuttle bus to and from city centre ( like central station ) , with or without payment. A free and frequent shuttle service will be ideal.

        Far from city centre, public transport is not convenient and takes one hour , changing from bus to train.

        A very nice hotel. Maybe the best I've ever stayed. Get a room with fjord view, you can slide open the window wall and enjoy the view while sipping some coffee/tea. I would visit this hotel again with my family.

        For some reason there was a lot of dust in air in the room. Maybe from the room textiles? A very minor issue anyway. Otherwise everything was clean and top-notch.
