We chose this hotel without knowing the city of Oslo so that is always risky. But for us (family with 2 young kids) it turned out to be a good choice. Important to us were the location (within walking distance of the city centre), a secured parking for the car, and the room and breakfast were very much OK. If ever we were to go back to Oslo, I believe we would stay here again.

... in all other countries too, but it's weird when cars stop in absence a stop sign or red light. And they don't gradually slow down to let you know, hey it's ok, I got you. They keep coming like they'll hit you if you don't get the hell out of the way, but they do stop. I did not see many tiny cars like other parts of Europe I've been to, but saw a good mixture of shiny Audis/BMWs and shabby cars, sedans and SUVs/station wagons. No electric car though. Apparently, ...
... in the last room on the main floor, with various things like testing your flexibility, how high you can jump and your hight and weight (I think I've lost 3 kilos since I left Melbourne). Once I was done with the normal exhibition, I went upstairs to the video games area. The first floor is fan art, drawings, sculptures, cosplay costumes and so on inspired by video game characters, and then the second floor is actual games which you can play. There were far ...
