Efficient toaster available at breakfast - not always the case in Norway!
Location close to city centre and River Aker. Good public transport. Filling breakfast. As expected much less noisy than in recent reviews during refurbishment which was largely complete. Cooked breakfast options disappointing especially rubbery scrambled eggs.
Everything is as advertised or even better. Some of the staff members look inexperienced. Their English is not very good and they apparently don't know all procedures very well. Note that other staff members are very experienced and were very helpful with everything.
clean hotel. helpful staff. very nice brekfast selection. easy access to city centre asked for a jug of ice water at nite time, receptionist was only able to provide a glass of water and no ice. ice is a fairly basic thing to provide, day or nite.
the staff are friendly, the rooms are clean It was our first trip and first stop in Norway in our life, our expierence with parking by Anker Hotel was absolutely terrible and we will not recommend this place to anyone else we care and will never visit this hotel again. Ankel hotel has a parking place BELONGS to a private parking company. But on the entrance of the parking it's written clearly: Q-Park Anker Hotel. The parking lot welcomed us with a fine of 80 euro, while we were trying to pay the parking fee in the hotel, in about 10 minues before we returned to the hotel. Anker Hotel claimed they are seperated with the parking lot and asked us to complain to the parking company. How can a hotel list its name on the parking place without being responsible for the parking management? We have to pay this extra 80 euro for the 10 mins absence while Anker Hotel claims nothing to do with it. Therefore we regret our stay there and will never come back again.
Great Location, only 5-10min walk into town, also situated by a tram stop. Is in between a new trendy bar/restaurant area and town. Nice warm rooms for Cold Oslo! Breakfast was good and is served until 11am which is a bonus.
Good breakfast and location Rebuilding work in hotel was noisy and outside the advertised hours of 11-1600 (0745-2100 on one occasion)
Breakfast selection good. Good value for.money
A nice 3 star hotel central to downtown oslo good breakfast,and staff friendly. No bad points that come to mind.
There was alot of renovationg happening so the hotel was constantly extreemely noisy. Plus they began with the drilling and Jack Hammering at 9am on a Saturday morning! We were very annoyed by this and would not stay there again.
Terrific value in Oslo. Walking distance to Munch museum (very close), central station, as well as downtown and harborfront area. Good, affordable (for Oslo) restaurants nearby. Hotel's extensive breakfast was much appreciated given high prices for food in Oslo. Taxi stand right out front and very close tram service was extremely convenient. Our room was plain, clean, and provided everything we needed. We were surprised by how quiet the room was, even being right across from the elevator. I would definitely stay at the Anker again in the future.
Nothing We arrived after being on the road for 10 hours with a confirmed reservation only to be told at 11:45pm that they had made a mistake and there weren't any rooms available for us. After charging full price to my AMEX, they never made an attempt to contact me via email or phone and tried to repeat that they would pay for a taxi to and from the other hotel property they had transferred the reservation to without my consent. I go online and see that that hotel was charging half the rate of the Vulcan. Frustrating and highly disappointed by the whole ordeal. Cherry on top: when we got to the other Scandic 20 min away, we were greeted by a bathroom what wasn't cleaned and there weren't house keeping staff around until morning. Wouldn't recommend such an unprofessional chain if you have a choice.
Excellent facilities in a convenient location for a reasonable price.
The staff are helpful. The hotel is clean. There's no kettle in the room but coffee and tea at the lounge is complimentary. The breakfast is super-value. Conveniently located (very near to the central railway station). There is no kettle in the room.
Was allover a pleasent experience, friendly staff, clean and nice room.
Not expensive, in the city center and near the central station. It was easy to get from the hotel to the airport at night. it was not enough light in the room, in my opinion.
proximity to central rail station noise from street side room
Well situated, not far from attractions and no disturbance. Good for business Should be more then one public computer
If you are going to pay with cash, you have to pay 200NKK more. This will be return to you when you check-out. But the location is good. It would be more nicer if the price was included breakfast.
Clean, quiet and close to public transport. Shower was tiny, like you might find on an overnight train's ensuite. Area is not terrible, but a little unsafe feeling, unlike other areas of the city.
Central. It's so easy when you arrive from the airport. The distric is totaly safe. The people come from Paris, London or NY will laught when some people said strange people on the night. It's totaly safe Wifi does n't work really
The location is excellent: five minutes walking from the railway station and very close to shopping centres and lots of restaurants and pubs.The hotel room was really modern designed and large. The hotel staff at the reception was not very talkative. The bathroom in the room was quite small and particularly the shower was at the same level of the floor.
The location of the hotel was good, near the main railway station Oslo S. There was also free wireless internet available in the rooms. During my stay (4 nights), on three occations in the morning the breakfast room was so full that I had to wait around 15 minutes before getting a table. One morning I didn't have time to wait and had to get a sandwitch from a shop opposite the hotel. Another morning a big group had conquered half of the breakfast room for some sort of seminar.
In center of Oslo
Close to central railway station, easy to find. Personal at reception desk in not friendly, looking too busy. Breakfast unreasonably expensive.
We booked a triple room with Anker Hostel but was upgraded to a triple room at Anker Hotel. The staff at Anker Hotel is very friendly and almost everyone wears a smile on their face, especially Marina. The shower area and the wc should be separated with a shower screen. After shower, the entire toilet floor is wet.
Litt bet Nothing
nothing the reception is not careful and polite.they gave me wrong key of bedroom for 8 although I paid extra for the room for 4. it took 2 hours to make them understand their mistake.the rooms are either dirty or not warm enough as it was minus 20 outside. bottom side of the bed was broken. it was inevitable to fall down if you sit that side.All in all location not the best. breakfast not value for the price and in another building. the rooms are ragged.wireless does not work in room even sometimes in lobby as well.
The hotel staffs are very friendly and the location was quite convenient. The shower room was quite small.
Very nice and clean place, near to the center town and really comfortable for every user. Maybe too expensive for a hostel!
Strong confusion between Anker Hostel and Anker Hostel, in the phases of reservation and check in.
It was nice, and worth a money payed for it. Everything was just ok
