    « Theft at hotel and no management response »

    I think you really can't stay here. I had by bag stolen out of the stored luggage and the management still is not responding to my mails after 5 months. The hotel I have not even mentioned is not clean and the inexperienced staff is clueless and the management unresponsive. Good luck with that

    « All round good experience »

    We stayed 2 nights on the 4th floor (of six) in a rear facing room. It was very quiet. The room itself was small - no space to unpack a case other than on the bed (where then does one store it?). but the room was very clean, the beds comfortable, and the shower excellent. Breakfast was good - lots of hot and cold choices. The hotel is ideally placed for access to the city centre - 5 metro lines run through Toyen T-bane station which is literally a 2 minute walk across the road. There are also shops and restaurants in that precinct. All in all a good experience - we will return.

    « Just three days out! »

    Nice hotell near the Metro station (400 meters) The room was not big, but clean! We had a room at the front (street) side, in the evening it was very noisy, but during the night the street was very quiet! Good breakfast! Good base for a short trip to Oslo!

    « Nice appartement-location in gamle oslo »

    We stayed here with three and had a cosy and spacious room ! Garage was adjacient and there is a little sort of bistro with some crossover food. The lobby was busy and the room quiet. There could be a bit more love in the presentation of the breakfast and maybe some choice of vegan food - but in conclusion a good place to stay in Oslo !

    « The worst hotel in my life »

    « Hotel In Oslo »

    I just sleep over the night since I land in Norway late in evening and have to be further in the morning. Hotel has very limited parking space. Room is very good and very well equipped. Actually that was small but regular apartment with kitchenette and with washing machine. Should be best option for family or group of friends visiting Oslo. Breakfast very good

    « No pretense »

    Firstly, Oslo is the city where everything is superb, so are hotels, I believe. Best said about Best Kampen, the apart-hotel's indiscrete location in a quiet eco-green zone of Oslo - and full kitchen complete with a microwave and crockery in the room, not to forget free use of an iron and what more for one's needs. Oh, and the great Indian chef on top of TexMex cuisine and a lush breakfast spread. Plus friendly stuff and ample city information desk. Nicely made and catered for rooms. All of this makes for a crowd of guests flocking in - particularly those on a budget. But I soon discovered yet livelier spots outside, even within the same hotel group. On the minus side, I have to mention the dull area Toyen void of attractions other than the Gardens. No warm heated floor in the room (I caught a cold walking barefoot). The double bed is in fact 1.5 size. An odd window overlooking a shabby house opposite with occasional nightly noises and (gosh!) smoking. Mind, the hotel is non-smoking, strictly. I wish there were more socializing, mixing, amusement, animation, live band or something I normally see in Spanish hotels of this grade. I understand Norway is on the expensive side for all of this but still I missed the grandeur this time.

    « very noisy room »

    the room i got was not very comfortable. even if the room was on the second floor of the hotel the rear window directly on street level. that would have ok, but the electric devices and especially the empty fridge were kind of buzzing the entire time. so at the end i had to switch out the electricity and even unplug the fridge. the room was also net very clean. the breakfast was however good.

    « Excelent »

    Very clean and spacious room with very comfortable beds. The Wifi coverage, is one of the best that I found provided by a Hotel. Very close to the subway. The breakfast is a must have. A lot of variety with eggs, fresh fruit and so on. Definitely, I recommend it. A great choice in terms of quality vs price.

    « Disappointed »

    I use to go quite often into Best Western hotels but honestly I' ve been disappointed by this one. The rooms are small, more or less clean. The shampoo and bath soap come directly from China and have a list of chemicals I rarely seen. You can forget the restaurant: expensive and everything is taken from the freezer. There's better place in Oslo

    « Good option not too far from city centre »

    I spent here 2 nights on a business trip. The location is not so central, however the metro station (Toyen) is a 4 mins walking and just 2 stops from Central Station. You can buy a day travel pass directly from the loca transport App, for approx 10€, super convenient. The room was rather spacious, modern and comfy. Breakfast was pretty good, however I personally cannot accept that still some hotels msy charge for non-american filtered coffee, or basically for a cappuccino made with a mediocre machine. Anyway thanks to Satnam, the restaurant manager, for understanding my point. Close to the metro station, there are several cafés and restaurant (I can recommend the Thai) as well a Coop supermarket. A last remark, the second day I left my room for some business meeting and came back at around 16h45. My room/bed was not made up and house keeping only passed by at 5pm! I didn't really mind (had not a real need of having it made up) but I guess this is an issue they need to address asap. Overall, in my opinion, this hotel is quite a good option even though not super central, as a base to explore the city.

    « A long we in Oslo »

    The hotel is just 600 mt from the famous Munch Museum and underground stop of Tøya. Breakfast is at around 15 € but is a very good start in the day. Rooms arte small studios with kitchen, frigor and open. Confortable and silent.

    « Lily bird »

    The worst worst worst experience ever. Trust me, there is nothing like the picture which showed on the website. People are queuing up for comparing. The staff is lying and finding the excuse. Like a refugee camp. The five star comment I assume the owner who have commented.

    « January 2014 in this Hotel »

    Hello! Our family was in this hotel in January 2014. It was long time ago and it s pitty to see many negative reviews now. Anyway, at that time everything was nice. We had a room for 4 people. Staff was quite polite and friendly. I guess it was mix of norwegians and foreigners, but anyway no problem with that. The food was really nice. We rented apartment (so not the hotel, but the next building). It s nice and quiet place. Yes, quite multinational, but that time it wasn t a big issue. So, we were quite happy.

    « Why bother? »

    Small, dirty room, broken AC, leaking shower, for breakfast stick to the cereal and worst of all terrible staff. Enough said. Oslo is a great place to visit but not here. The staff in the petrol station close by were more friendly!

    « Terrible and dangerous, aggressive and lier receptionist »

    The Indian guy that he is working on the evening at the reception he threatened me on the lift after that for 2 night we found our room dirty still with the towel on the floor and I asked please to fix this! Really terrible experience and only after the guy of security come we had some towel clean!

    « Good enough. »

    This hotel didn't wow me in any way but I'll review it relative to its price-point, which for Oslo was relatively low. The decor in the corridors was a bit grey and gloomy but the rooms were funkier and the beds were comfortable. The hotel is very warm, especially the bedroom, most likely due to the very large water heater in the ensuite. There was also an odd moment with the receptionist who took us to the lift and then told us we couldn't use the lifts as they were broken so we'd have to walk 6 flights of stairs with our luggage. As this happened, a man came out of the lift perplexed by this and simply said "the lift is working...".

    « Surprisingly good breakfast »

    The hotel is good value for money, located two metro stops from the city center. Extremely friendly and helpful service from the front desk. The rooms are small, but well equipped. The breakfast was quite varied and of higher quality than expected, considering the price of the hotel.

    4
    « Friendly staff, nice hotel »

    Rooms are well equipped, not that large but many of them has balcony. There is a quite large terrace however always open for friendly gatherings. Bathrooms are smaller than I imagined, on contrary it has everything you need. Breakfast has nice variety to choose from, the only thing I missed really is the regular european espresso coffee. Staff were polite and helpful all the time. Neighborhood of the place is multicultural, and peaceful. Comparing average prices in Oslo this area has a lot of cheaper shops, markets and restaurants. Famous Botanical Garden is nearby which must be visited if you travel here. Mass transportation is close with Underground connection to the city centre.

    « Nice place to stay »

    I stayed at best western hotel by booking a studio apartment. It was clean and cosy. Nice place to stay and within 2 mins of walking distance of the Toyen metro station. We had a deal with the manager with the amount including the Apartment rent + the breakfast. I stayed more than a month and loved it. Would love to go to the same place again if time permits.

    « Extreme sour and unfriendly staff »

    They speak English, sort of, with an Indian accent, but not Norwegian. Smile, service and friendliness is something they do not know what is. It doesn't matter how polite and smiling you are, still the smile and politeness are sitting distantf that we actually do not think it is present

    « ?Lovely Hotel, little distance form the centre, but excellent? »

    Great staff and service, comfortable bed, no complaints at all. Check in faultless promote and courteous A little distance from the centre, price was reasonable relative to the general cost of hotels in Oslo.

    « Chaos in Kampen »

    Arrived at past midnight to be told there was no booking for us. The hotel were running a dual registration system and our booking was nowhere to be found. We had a weekend of embarrassment our payment questioned, being asked to pay again and needing to print off credit card statements as proof of payment with the hotel saying they we needed to pay as they hadn't received it. Our card key was deactivated on two separate days and we had to ask for them to be reactivated. We were told on the first morning on our way into breakfast that we hadn't paid for that either. Our room was smaller than expected, the curtains were dirty and not all rooms had kitchens as expected. No apology was given.

    « Good Hotel With Helpful staff »

    The hotel offers not only a good location, but also a great and helpful staff. . My single-room was very clean, I slept like a baby on the very comfortable bed. In the morning, I had tea and instant coffee provided for free as there was a kettle in the room. The flat screen TV offered satellite TV, but I was more into the free Wi-Fi(great connection ). The balcony was a much treasured plus which offered extra space. The location was another advantage. The Munch museum is within walking distance, and a bus- stop is directly outside the hotel. Further up the street you will find charming Kampen. The metro with lines across town is across the street.

    « Clean, smallish room for a reasonable price near a metro station. »

    The room was clean but a bit small. The double bed was also quite narrow. The room didn't have air conditioning but there was a small balcony. Price was reasonable for 100 eur/night and Tøyen metro station is right next to the hotel with good connections.

    « Avoid! »

    Claims to be a 4 star hotel, no - it's a 2-star apartment hotel about a 30 dollar taxi fare from the central station. Rooms are small and inhospitable, service is slow and the food is better at even a fast food joint at 25% the price. Rediculous! Best western should visit this misery themselves.

    « Hotel strike! »

    We'd planned to stay in the city centre for convenience but due to a major strike by hotel and restaurant workers our booking was moved here. Not quite as handy as we'd planned but the metro station is very close to the hotel and the journey from the centre is only 2 stops, taking 5 minutes, so it was actually much less of a nuisance than we initially thought. I felt really sorry for the staff, obviously having to cover for striking colleagues and with the hotel full to capacity they were run ragged but all friendly and helpful - well done ;-)

    « Great Hotel about 15 min walk from the Centrum »

    I have stayed there before, it is modern and has also mini Apartments with Balcony´s. Clean rooms and very nice and helpful staff. This time the Mexican Resturant was open after winter sleep and they have a good choice of food. Recommend the Nachos and the Fiatas.

    « Business »

    The room is all you need for a business trip. It was clean, good breakfast, free wifi and not too far away from the central train station seeing the costs of taxis. They are busy upgrading the hotel and improving the looks. Recommended for a good sleep.

    « The greatest »

    The hotel offers not only a good location, but also a great and helpful staff. My 2nd stay here was based on past xperience, and will stay here in my future bookings in Oslo. My single-room was very clean, I slept like a baby on the very comfortable bed. In the morning, I had tea and instant coffee provided for free as there was a kettle in the room. The flatscreen TV offered satelite TV, but I was more into the free Wi-Fi(great connection ). The balcony was a much treasured plus which offered extra space. The location was another advantage. The Munch museum is within walking distance, and a bus- stop is directly outside the hotel. Further up the street you will find charming Kampen. The metro with lines across town is across the street. My best and highest recommendations.

    « Value for money »

    If you are looking for a fairly cheap hotel, outside of the center of Oslo, in a multi cultural neighborhood, with fine restaurants and the subway just around the corner, this is your hotel. Who wants to stay in the fancy center if you can experience what real life and living in Oslo is all about? The staff of the hotel was very friendly, breakfast was great, the rooms were very convenient, cosy, tidy and clean. Ok, by foot it's some kind of a walk, but taking a taxi from the center to this hotel, it's not expensive and very nearby. If you are an experienced walker, there really should be no problem. Be honest, do you really want to pay hundreds of euro's for staying in a hotel in the city center? It ruins your days in Oslo, the rest is expensive enough. It's good to safe some money to do cool stuff in this great city. Staying in this hotel all makes it possible. The staff really wants you to have the best of stays. That is what we experienced. Thanks for that!

    « Bad service !! Bad organized »

    Unpolite service,long waiting time at desk. They are far away from to be service minded. Too expensive 2599 NOK for a room with 70x70 cm room. Too average breakfast for this prise. Will not recommend this hotel. Travel a lot dont often experience this kind of hotel service.

    « Nice short stay in Oslo »

    We stayed 3 days in Oslo and Kampen was definitely a good choice. The hotel is close to a metro stop and to Munch Museum. The double room was a nice one, personnel at reception pretty good. Breakfast buffet in the average, car parking available upon payment. A good accomodation considering that Oslo in generally very expensive.

    « Nice hotel for budget travellers »

    This hotel is about 2 km away from the central train station in Oslo. I booked it as it was the cheapest good brand hotel available in Oslo and was more of a last minute buy. Honestly speaking I didn't get the time to enjoy the facilities a lot (we reached late at night and had a flight next morning). The room was rather small, but neatly done. I had a blissful night sleep after full day of trek and travel. The place was easy to locate on the map, but slightly far and didn't seem like a great area. There were lots of hostels around the hotel. The hotel is managed by a very cordial Indian man who offered us free coffee at the bar. :) Frankly, I wouldn't go back to the hotel only because of the location. It didn't seem too great.

    « Not Central and ontop of a Refugee Centre »

    Stayed for 3 nights, its in a downbeat area and approximately 1.8km from the centre not 0.5 as it suggested. The hotel is above the Red Cross Refugee Centre and although it didnt affect our stay it isnt great having people in RedCross tabards wandering though the foyer of a hotel with paying guests. The staff werent particularly welcoming when we arrived. Despite numerous negative feedbacks the manager repeats the same standard response.

    « What's that? »

    I've been there with my girlfriend to celebrate our anniversary and first thing I've seen was a camp with hundreds of immigrants. I couldn't even figure out where the entrance was as there are 2 signs for the hotel in 2 different places and 2 different names as well. I asked for parking space and they say it would cost me over 10 pounds per day if I find one. The WiFi wasn't free too. The staff at the desk wasn't very efficient and welcoming either. I went to the room and the kitchen I supposed to have was outside the room with no items to cook. The room was extremely small and no the one I booked on line. There was enough space just for a double bed and a luggage. The bathroom was even smaller and with no windows and the fan was not working. I paid for the breakfast and it was so poor. I told them that I wanted to leave after the first night and they don't even try to make me stay. I've chosen to lose my money for the 2 days I've booked than to stay there. Very bad.

    1
    « Refugee center »

    Without a notice garage was closed and a refugee center was set up there. Also three first floors of the hotel are now accommodated by refugees as well as apartments in the next building. The noise and hazzle around the hotel is untoleratable.

    « Terrible value... »

    When the best selling point of a hotel is "clean" you should know to give it a wide berth. Admittedly I only booked this property because a conference was on and all the better hotels were fully booked. Upon arrival, the receptionist asked if we would agree to go to a different hotel 5 kms away as they were full. An odd and not very welcoming greeting. I declined! The lobby area carried a VERY strong smell of curry which permeated the floors above. I was on the fourth floor and could still smell the curry in the corridor. I really can't imagine staying here for a long time (or wish it upon anyone), but for those who do there is a washing machine in the bathroom and a working though spartan kitchen. I was cold in bed and the duvet was paper thin. With no extra bedding in the room, I called down to reception. The night receptionist did have a spare blanket, but because he was on his own in the hotel, he couldn't send it up. So if I wanted it I'd have to go downstairs. I was delighted to check out the following morning. Not wanting to eat very lack lustre breakfast buffet, I asked if there was a nice nearby cafe. "No, nothing nice in this area", came the response... "you'll have to take a taxi to a more central location". That kind of says it all. Oh and it was £471 for two bedrooms for one night. So not even budget.

    « Good hotel... Not awesome location »

    First of all, if you didn't pay your stay before arriving, make sure you call or email or let the hotel know at what time will you arrive, I didn't pay it, and I advice on Booking that I would arrive after 9pm, when I got to the hotel my reservation was canceled and I argue for a time with the manager, at the end he send me to an other hotel really far from the city venter but without cost, and the next night I could come back and stay at the hotel as my reservation said. On the other hand, the hotel is clean and the restaurant has a good service and food, the location is far from the city centre, but you have a subway station really close, you have a 7eleven and some grocery stores (this ones close early). If you are going to Oslo for the first time I would recommend you to stay on a closer city centre hotel, but if for some reason you can't find one, this one is the place to be.

    « Nice exterior, convenient to shops, close to Munch Museum »

    We checked in around 3 p.m. and were so glad we did! They only had 2 people working the front desk and by 5 p.m, it was swamped. Parking was in the back and underground for 80 Kr, so that was nice. The hotel is within walking distance to a Coop (Grocery Store/Post office), Apotek (Pharmacy), some shops, gas station, University, the Munch Museum and several small eateries. The hotel restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, & dinner. It was moderately priced. Our room was clean, had a sink, small fridge, dishes for 4, microwave & best of all a washer/drier combo. The drier did not work well and the clothesline was missing. You could see where it had been. This was a non-smoking room, which became too warm. When we opened the windows, the neighbors were smoking on their balcony & the room soon filled with the smell. We called the front desk about it, but smoking is permitted on the balconies. The street noise was moderate. We were surprised to find a fan in the room and used it. We also were pleased to find a safety deposit box. The service was slow, but attentive. The hotel sits inside the shell, of an old warehouse-type building, but inside it is completely modern.

    « Good stay at Tøyen »

    Nice and clean hotel, close to Tøyen metro-station. Nice room, and a shared terrace right outside the room. I arrived late in the evening, and there was a long line at the front desk, otherwise a good stay. The room was facing a wery quiet area, so a good chance for a good night sleep.
