I had a very nice stay at sixt floor. With shared facilitys where nothing to say abaut, clean and no problem. The room where nice.

I was looking for cheap accommodation is Oslo (which is almost an impossible task!) and found this hotel in central Oslo that was almost as cheap as the private accommodation options.
The hotel is situated very close to the Main Central Station and Karl Johans gata. It is in one of the side-streets that looks a bit dodgy but I had no problems. The hotel occupies two top floors of the old building (there is an elevator).
Unique Quality: I had a single room with a sink only. The room was clean as well as the showers and the toilet (situated on the corridor). Breakfast was uninspiring and the breakfast room too small for all the guests that were staying there. The staff at the reception was quite cold, as if they were saying all the time: "You are staying in the cheapest hotel in Oslo so please don't ask too much".
Nevertheless, because of its location and price (I paid 450 NOK per night) I would recommend it to all budget travellers visiting this expensive Scandinavian capital.
Directions: Very close to the Central Railway station: second street on the left as you enter Karl Johans g.
I found the City Hotel online as I searched for accommodations in Oslo. The hotel is conveniently located near the train station and is only a block from Karl Johans gate, a main central street running through Oslo to the palace.
My primary purpose for choosing the hotel was its reasonable price. I stayed in one of the rooms that had shared facilities since it was more reasonable. The room and facilities were clean and quite acceptable. I found the staff to be very nice and helpful. There is a free breakfast in the morning.
Before I got to Oslo, a Norwegian I met in Copenhagen said that the hotel is in what he called the rougher area of Oslo. While this may be the case, don't be alarmed. I felt quite comfortable walking back to my hotel late in the evening.
We also spent one night at the City Hotel
640 KR for a double without an en-suite.
Unique Quality: It was fairly clean and quiet and very close to the Central Station.
