Great value and location
A perfect location in the heart of town. The clean room with enough space for two was nicely decorated and all the public areas were well maintained. Complimentary tea and coffee was a nice touch. Fresh breakfast buffet was well presented and very good.

Plenty of restaurants and convenience shops just downstairs if needed as well This is a nice hotel, our room was quite small but clean and very comfortable and quiet, staff are nice and check in and out was easy. Great central hotel

Clean room, friendly staff and great location
Centrally located and walkable distance to the habour. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean.
My stay was superb! My room was on the 4th floor and was not noisy at all. When I arrived the hotel front desk at 1pm, the staff let me have an early check-in. So, I could have a refresh in the room before going out again. Downstairs is the Karl Johans Gate, there are a lot to see along the road and the Royal Palace is at the end of the main road.

good location but not much else
location x 3
Small room with very poor view on an inner court yard with a huge machine/aircon unit. Soft and small bed, no safety deposit box. Small and basic breakfast room with limited choice of food. Only plus is the location on the main road of Oslo.

Best Western Karl Johan
Location, comfort, staff
Excellent location. We had 4th Floor room overlooking main street but no noise from street with windows closed. Room was hot as we visited in summer but fan was provided. Good choice at breakfast and friendly staff.
