Comfort Hotel Boersparken
Travel Blogs from Oslo
Oslo is a vibrant modern city with all services working perfectly. Well all except one - they don't seem to be able to do a decent weather forecast. We awoke to rain and my iPhone told me than it would rain till the evening. So we set off for the tram with rainy gear stored on our persons. Before we got to the tram stop it was beginning to clear up and by the time we got to the harbour it was bright sunshine. We found the number 91 ferry and set off for Bygdøy. Today was going to be a ...

Nice hotel, good facilities, good attitude. The accessible room is pretty good, if a bit small. The view to the opera house is very nice. We walked/pushed around the city or used buses. Very pleasant stay. It is a nice touch to put a juicer in the breakfast area and let you make your own juice.

Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Hotel Boersparken Oslo
Thought this was a great hotel that provided excellent value for money - especially in a city as expensive as Oslo. Paid about £100 per person for 3 nights through Expedia, and this included breakfast.
Hotel is in an excellent location, handy for the station, the main street - Karl Johan's Gate, and the harbour. Very easy to find, very convenient and would highly recommend it.
The breakfast buffet was sufficient enough that we didn't feel that we needed lunch. Didn't eat the evening buffet in the hotel, but at 65 kroner (around £6.50), it appeared to deliver excellent value for money for a salad and cold meat buffet, when we paid - on average - about 300 kroner per person for an evening meal excluding drinks.
Rooms were very comfortable , although the decor was a little shabby in some places. Showers were great - warm, with excellent pressure, and staff were very friendly. Didn't notice any of the "undesirables" that other reviewers mentioned, although we didn't particularly look for them.
All in all, it was nothing fancy - plenty of places to choose from if you're looking for luxury, but it was a comfortable, convenient and cash-friendly hotel in a terrific city. We won't hesitate to stay here if we return to Oslo.
Great location, free internet access
Stayed at the Comfort Hotel during a business trip 9-12 May 2006. Located within 2 blocks of the central train station, Karl Johan Street and walking distance to restaurants, museums, waterfront, etc. The street just behind the hotel coming off Karl Johan is one you would not want to walk through alone at night. It appeared to be the hangout of the down-and-out and stoned, they did not bother passers-by but crowded the sidewalk and were sometimes loud and boisterous. My double room was very comfortable, clean and cozy with a desk. The bathroom was clean but had a stale smell to it (could use an air freshener). No iron in the room but there was an "ironing" room nearby. There is wireless internet from the room but you have to ask the registration staff for a free account; there is also an computer with internet access at the very nice lobby. I found that the staff, although friendly, did not volunteer much information about services in the hotel, you have to ask. The breakfast and light dinner included in the rates are great deals, decent selection of food and drinks esp. at breakfast. We ate both meals at the hotel and used the savings to pay the exorbitant beer/wine prices while people-watching at the open-air cafes at the harbour.
Located near the main train station, this hotel is clean and modern. Breakfast was provided.
Excellent shower pressure and heated floors in the bathroom. TV had cable.
We found the beds very comfortable, (yes - two singles puched together for a double) and the heating not a problem.
Hotel staff were very helpful and assisted us with booking our next nights accommodation in Geilo.
The only downside to the location was the 'undesirables' hanging around outside - we arrived very late on a Tuesday night and wanted to find somewhere to get some food since there was no room service. It was around 11pm and not much was open around there other than fast food, but there seems to be plenty of 'working girls' about! I still felt safe as I was with my 6'4 partner, but if I was a girl alone, I may have turned right back around to the hotel hungry!
Ideally suited to people on a budget especially given that Oslo is extortionately priced. Situated within 5 mins walk of the centre of Oslo and is covered by several buses and trams stopping close by.
Our double room consisted of 2 single beds pushed together and very little room for much else. No hot drink facilities were provided in the room and the ventilation left a lot to be desired. However the room and bathroom were clean and moderate.
The staff were helpful and were able to answer any questions asked.
The breakfast and light evening supper buffets are value for money and highly recommended. Overall a reasonable and comfortable hotel.
Rapidly becoming my regular hotel for Oslo...
I cannot recommend this hotel enough! I stayed here in Oslo just 2 or 3 weeks ago and suddenly found myself back in Oslo again and needing somewhere to stay. I had booked a room for one night but due to a change in circumstances found myself needing a place to stay in Oslo on the previous night aswel. It was rather late in the evening and the hotel had been fully booked but the reception staff were very helpful and managed to find a room for me (someone had not wanted a room). They managed to get me a deal on the room which was great! As for the hotel, it is *very* central...just a few minutes walk from the train station. The rooms are cozy and I didn't find the beds hard (like a previous reviewer). Also there is free internet downstairs in the lobby (which came in very handy for me) and the staff kindly let me use their printer. I would definately stay here again - I have stayed at similarly priced hotels and found the rooms smaller and disappointing and the hotels not as centrally located. I haven't eaten breakfast there as am usually in a rush to go places so don't know what the food is like but if it's anything like the rest of the hotel then I can't be bad!
A tip - I tend to book with Expedia where I have found the cost of the room was about £50 (as opposed to I think £100 though don't quote me on that!).
Good value, comfortable hotel!
Really enjoyed our stay at this central hotel in Oslo. We arrived NY eve and were given a room on the top floor. The hotel is well situated and is modernly decorated. The bonus for us were the free waffles, and light evening meal.... a really nice touch, especially as we were on a budget. The staff at this hotel were extremely friendly and i would recommend it to anyone.
Nice cute hotel.
Located on a quiet Olso corner, this hotel is worth the price. It's very moderns, with comfortable and new rooms. Not in the historical center, but can always use public trsnaportation. I liked it.
Great staff, hard beds
The Comfort Hotell Boersparken was not very comfortable. The staff was very nice, but the beds were hard and lumpy, and the room was always chilly, no matter what we did with the radiator. The room was furnished with what one might generously call Scandanavian simplicity--or, if one were feeling ungenerous (as I was after 5 days there), one might call bare emptiness. There was no bathtub, no dresser, a tiny wardrobe with no shelves, no bathroom vanity (I hauled in the end table to put my toiletries on), and the "double" bed was merely two single beds pushed together! Don't married couples snuggle in Noway? (Given the lack of adequate heating in that room, it was practically necessary.)
