A very good value (I think)

My husband and I stayed at the Clarion Bastion for three nights. Our room was clean, a bit worn out, but very comfortable. We loved the "hospital" beds and the fast wifi. As everyone will tell you, Oslo is VERY EXPENSIVE so we were delighted to learn that breakfast, an afternoon snack of crepes, and dinner were all included! The breakfast was very good and offered a huge variety of things to eat: eggs (pre-cooked and ones you can cook to your own liking), crispy bacon, delicious whole-grain bread, cheese, ham, fruit, yogurt, cereal, lox, pickled herring, nutella, and more. Dinner was also generous and tasty, somewhere between a fast food restaurant and a college dorm. Coffee, tea and fruit are available 24/7. The location of the hotel is convenient. Don't be put off by the massage and tattoo parlors nearby -- the neighborhood is perfectly safe.

We were arriving in Oslo late in the evening and wanted a hotel close to the station. When we told colleagues we had booked the Bastion, they said it was in a red light district and we should change our booking. I am very glad we ignored them! Yes, the area has some slightly sleazy places nearby, but it is between the station and the harbour area, so that's not very surprising. It is, however, exceptionally well run, quiet, suitable for families and VERY convenient for central Oslo. The decor is quirky; a mirrored dressing table being the highlight. The bathroom is a small wet room, with a very small shower. Breakfast was very good, tea and coffee were available all the time. A hot meal is available in the evenings and you can make your own pancakes! Wifi is free throughout the hotel. Reception staff were extremely helpful, speaking excellent English and giving helpful travel advice as well as printing off our boarding passes.

This hotel is near railway station and Opera so the location is quite good. Staff is very friendly. Lobby and restaurant are very comfortable, lots of chairs to sit down. Breakfast is great. They also serve free dinner and you can really save money with that. In the afternoon you can also make pancakes. Room is okay, nothing special. Our room was really quiet. Wifi was fine, not very fast all the time. Room was not very clean when we came, small papers on the carpet and also the toilet was little dirty. One day they didn't clean it at all (we came back very late so we didn't complain). Bed was okay but not very comfy. Bathroom was tiny (standard room) and it was actually hard to get out from the shower. The room had carpet, not hardwood floor. So beware of the standard room if you have asthma! We didn't use sauna or the gym. Next time in Oslo, I'll definitely try some other hotel. Still a choice for someone, especially if you want to eat complimentary dinner at the hotel. Just remember at least the standard room is not like you expect at the 4 star hotel
