Nice, clean hotel. Quiet location next to the ski jump. Stunning view (overview of Oslo) from the front side of the hotel. 5min walking from the metro to the city center (NOK 30.-) parking available under the hotel (NOK 150.- a day).

After such a great day we headed back to the hostel and chatted on the lounge, ate popcorn and watched TV. We were saying just how lucky we were and that we had such a great time in Oslo.
