About Citybox Oslo

Citybox Oslo provides an economical stay in the heart of Oslo, a five-minute walk from the Oslo S train station. Guests trade conventional amenities like daily housekeeping and a receptionist for an affordable rate in a modern building.

Citybox Oslo feels far from a box, with many rooms showcasing floor to ceiling windows. High quality mattresses and bunk beds in family rooms can also be found at this hotel. A desk, reading light, coffee table, comfortable chair, and a place to hang clothes, rounds off the list of amenities in well-appointed rooms.

Watch some TV in the main floor lounge, or catch up on work with the free Wi-Fi. This non-smoking hotel is across the street from parking.

Access the neighbouring restaurant from the lobby for a full breakfast.

Citybox Oslo is 30 minutes from the airport.

Positive Reviews

So much for so little.

While Citybox Oslo is a no-frills hotel in many ways, guests who missed a hair dryer or coffee maker in their room felt that extras like heated bathroom floors and a communal kitchen made up for this. Guests loved meeting fellow travellers in the lounge area, and most were enthusiastic about the simple, modern rooms for an affordable price.

Three cheers for efficiency.

Check-in and check-out is a breeze at this hotel, with many guests delighted to find a kiosk that takes care of credit card payments and dispenses key cards for rooms. If something should come up, a hotel host is available to answer questions.

Super location.

You might be hard-pressed to find a more convenient location in Oslo. Put on your walking shoes for a quick trip to the bus or train station, or enjoy the easy stroll to the waterfront, royal palace, and opera house.

Negative Reviews

Check your room size.

Rooms at Citybox Oslo are designated 'small', 'standard', and 'family'. Some guests found 'small' rooms to be just that, and could have used a bit more space. Many recommended an upgrade if you don't want to feel too cramped.

Side eye for Wi-Fi.

You might find that you are giving your computer some dirty looks after being unable to connect to the Internet. Several guests reported trouble with this, but some had more luck in the lounge.

Too much information.

Knowing whether or not your neighbour is in their room is something most hotel guests could do without. Unfortunately at Citybox Oslo, a few overnight guests were all too aware of their neighbour's comings and goings, and overheard general noise that comes with thin walls. While the majority of guests had a quiet stay, some would have rather done without neighbourly noise.
