Decent tourist class accommodation Nov 23, 2010
The Best Western hotel Bondeheimen is located just off Karl Johans Gate, within walking distance of the Royal Palace and the railway station. It's excellent when having business in central Oslo as well as for a shopping or city trip.

It's an old historic building that has been pleasantly redecorated and updated to modern standards.

I received a very friendly and efficient check-in. The receptionist already had my mail and messages ready upon arrival and was very helpfull in giving directions and pointers.

I staid in room 307, a corner room on the 3rd floor facing the inner courtyard. The room was small but pleasantly decorated and had a queen size bed, wooden floor and a flatscreen tv as well as a minibar. The bathroom was surprisingly large compared to the size of the bedroom and had a bath tub (rather unual in Scandinavia) and plenty of soaps, shampoos and beauty supplies.

The room faced the inner courtyard and a big wall but I found it rather appalling that there were huge stains of bird poo all over the window. I understand that windows are not cleaned daily, but a stain this large needs attention...

The room was not too sound proof and you can hear neighbours taking a shower as well as chairs being moved or foot steps from the floor above. At night there is also a weird buzzing sound coming from the courtyard (power generator?)

The lobby features 2 computers with internet access, connected to a printer, that can be used free of charge and at night time there is even a complimentary pot of hot soup for the guests.

Breakfast is served in the Kaffistova café, that during the day is open to everyone but in the morning only can be accessed with the room key. The sellection is rather okay and has all the regular breakfast items. It does tend to get very crowded in the morning through.

All in all it's a comfortable hotel worth its 3 stars. But the overal cleaness of the rooms and public spaces could be better. The friendly and helpfull staff does however make the stay worth while!

Good! Let me know if you have any time off next time you come! As for Scandic Byporten, I don´t know the hotel and can´t say anything about it! See you soon!

Thanks for the advice Sarah! But I'm not sure if it really would have helped. I had two colleagues staying at the hotel at different floors, who actually heard the same buzz.
It looks that I'll come to Oslo again for Reisoiv and will most likely then be staying at Scandic Byporten :-)

Comfy central hotel that won't break the bank Nov 27, 2010
This hotel has a great location, one block back from the main street in Oslo. A 5 minute stroll to all the major attractions (important when it's cold).

Although reception can be busy, the service was friendly & efficient.

The room was clean and commfortable, the bathroom had everything we needed, althrough the toiletries provided were very basic.

The floor we were on was under renovation, so the hallways were sllightly messy. Our room (#612) was a very long way from the lift, but quiet.

We missed the breakfast the first day: get a wake up call - the black out blinds are dangerous! It was a good buffet spread with lots of options. Important to eat well given the price of eating out in Olso can be crazy!

All in all a great, standard choice in a city renowned for being the most expensive in the world. Really recommended!

A weekend trip to Oslo Dec 19, 2008
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is situated in the city centre, near to all important sight seeing places. The staff was very friendly and breakfast was really good. They offered loads of things, even caviar! The only thing we didnt really like was the fact our room was next to a very very busy street. The main street was not far from our hotel and on Friday and Saturday evening all party animals passed our room, which kept us awake most of the night..

So if you decide to stay at this hotel make sure your room isnt next to the busy street!
