Let's get the negativity out of the way first - this is no Scandi-inspired interior designed hotel. More of a bland conference hotel. But hey its relatively modern, my (single) room on the 10th floor was clean and spacious. Clothes hangers in an open wardrobe, TV with mostly Nordic channel plus CNN & BBC World. Lovely bathroom with shower and underfloor heating, which was v hot in accordance with the daily average outside temperature of 21C during my stay! Had buffet breakfast daily, served 7-10am. Canteen style, hence bedlam most times, with quite rude fellow travellers budgeing their way through the counters. Plenty of seats and tables extended to the next door bar. Fruit juices and tea/coffee, cereals, yoghurts, ham and cheese. Hot selection included boiled & scrambled eggs, mini meatballs (yum) sausages, hash browns, baked beans, toast. Fresh fruit was tad dissappointing, only apples & bananas. Hotel was an easy 10 mins walk up STORGATA from Central Station, or tram 17 for the lazy & tired. Felt safe day and night despite lots of drunks and down & outs. Cross the nearby bridge, and you're in Hipsterland of GRUNERLOKKA with its expensive array of eateries and bars, and a fantastic river walk along the Akerselva. The lovely Gamle Aker Church (12th century origin, rebuilt 18th) and a row of traditional wooden houses are about 15 mins walk northwards on the river path, as is Mathallen Food Hall. Another (free!) tip is catch nos 18/19 trams from Central Station to EKEBERG sculpture park 20 mins to the southeast, to enjoy sprawling walks and great views of the city and islands of Oslofjord. All in all, a no frills clean budget hotel in an infamously expensive capital city. Takk. Collapse

Stayed here recently, and I think the best description would be "perfectly fine, pretty boring". Reception staff were prompt and helpful, rooms were pretty spartan (did have TVs, but no tea/coffee making facilities; if you want a kettle, you must ask for one at reception, and it will not include a cup), bathroom was clean... The bathroom also had a heated floor, with a thermostat to control it; a nice touch that I wasn't expecting given the budget nature of the hotel. Shower was good, plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Beds were quite comfortable; I slept well on them. Oh, and I had a good view of the city. Curiously, the rooms were well insulated for noise from one another, but front doors didn't keep out any hallway noise. I was on the elevator lobby, and got a lot of hallway noise during the late afternoon and mid-morning. My room had a significant amount of dust on light fixtures and headboards, and I noticed when I moved bed (to combine two of the narrow twin beds) that the floor underneath the bed was very dusty. Other negatives - the Wifi in my room was terrible, and this even though the transmitter was right outside my door. Wifi disconnected constantly and had difficulty re-connecting. I was simply trying to check my email and look up hours for museums, but if I'd been attempting to get work done, I suspect I wouldn't have been able to. Breakfast was acceptable (some of the bread was great), but my biggest issue with this aspect of my stay was that the breakfast area is so poorly lit. Gave the whole thing a pretty grim air. On the whole, I thought it was perfectly fine, but also a lot of niggling little details that I suspect others wouldn't be happy about at all. This was by far the cheapest place I could find in Oslo, though, that wasn't a hostel and didn't have abysmal ratings on TripAdvisor. I would stay here again is I was in Oslo. Collapse

Located at the northern end of Storgata , Anker represents very good value for Oslo , which as the world knows is an expensive place to visit. Around a 10 minute walk from Central station , it is also close to some decent bars which are located just across the water . The rooms are simple , clean , modern and comfortable . Breakfast is buffet style and there is a vast amount of choice on offer. Downsides ? Okay the area isn't great (Storgata is not a place you'll wish to linger after dark , or in daytime either !) , but don't let that stop you from staying in a real bargain of a hotel . Collapse

We chose this hotel, because of the price and location - if this is the only thing that matters to you, go for it. * It is nice that breakfast is included, but it is pretty basic (also, you might have to fight for some items or rather just forget about them some days). Get there early as the staff does not really care if trays with food are empty or not. If you are lucky, the coffee machine will be working.. * The staff does not seem really friendly or caring for their job - we were not always greeted, also on the day of our arrival there were leaves and mess from outside in the reception hall. No one really cared about cleaning it, they rather stood there and chit chated. Not the best first impression you get. * Our room was really small. Like.. really small. * Garage parking possible - but you have to pay 260 nok per day, even if you pay at 5 PM and want to leave in the morning - you still pay for 24h. Fortunately, one does not travel to stay in room or look at staff! Or fight for banana.. So all in all, good deal for short stay. Collapse

26-29 April 2018. I had a double room at the hotel, price around 100 euro per night with breakfast included, booked on airbnb. BTW, it is cheaper to reserve online that at the reception, so if you want to prolong your stay reserve more nights online!!!! The room was ok with everything you need inside, nice view from the 11th floor. In these 3 nights, they cleaned the room just once but not changed the sheets or towels. The Wi-fi connection was fair enough even from the room. The drapes were not blackout so it might interfere with your sleep during summer months when it is more light outside during the night. The breakfast though, was a disappointment, even though it offered a vast variety of choices the quality of the food was low. The coffee at the machines was made of powder and not actual beans or grind coffee. A plus were the fresh fruits. But all in all, you could find something to fill your stomach in the morning. The hotel offers you parking which is around 260 NOK per 24 hours if you buy it in the parking machine outside. From their internet app 24 hours cost 300 NOK. It is also cheaper to take 24h instead of paying per hour or for only 12h. The minus with the parking is that it is administrated by Q park and it happened to us that we wanted to pay for another day and it asked to add the credit card without selecting anything, and automatically checked us out 1 hour earlier than the actual end of our payed ticket. So, if you want to prolong the stay just wait until the last minute, because noone could help us and we lost some kr. A big plus at the hotel was the receptionist, a girl, which was really helpful and gave us tips and tricks where to eat, what to visit and the amount of money we have to pay for everything. The hotel is pretty close to the city center, around 5-10 min walking. They also have a hostel nearby if you are interested, maybe the price per bed is lower and more convenient for you. Comparing to other hotels in Oslo and seeing other prices, I would definitely recommend Anker Hotel for few nights spent in the city. Collapse
