Comfort Hotel Xpress Central Station opened October 15th 2014. Budget hotel. Small rooms. Plenty of attitude, low rates & love! Xpress are budget hotels with attitude. We know that our guests are in Oslo to experience Oslo, not to spend time in their hotel rooms. Our rooms give you a great base to explore the city and our staff are ready to share their personal favorites. We don't have a restaurant. We do have lots of breakfast tips for you. We also sell breakfast items in our lobby shop. We don't clean your room while you're here. We believe you're more than able to put the remote control on your nightstand yourself, and we also know you can use your towel more than once. This saves loads on personnel cost, and you pay less for your room. Hey, it also saves on energy use and minimizes our cotton usage. Our Barception is staffed 24/7. We sell four types of bottled beer, three cocktails, one red, one white and one prosecco. We don't recommend trying them all at once. We also have the occasional Sunday Special. We love Sundays. Our rooms are small. They have really good beds, a flat screen TV, a small desk and a good sized bathroom. All the basics. They also have free WIFI (open - no confusing passwords needed), power outlets by the desk AND the nightstand, and they also have their own donate drawer. Just leave what you can spare in that drawer and we'll make sure it ends up with someone who really needs it. In October 2014 we're launching our city guide app: Urban Experiences by Xpress. Make sure to download it to make your Oslo visit even more interesting! PS: 13 of our rooms have their own private roof top.

Apart from being closest to central station or being close to city center, this place doesn't offer much advantage.
Rooms are extremely tight & small. Feels like prison cells.
Location wise excellent. Walking distance to most venues
Clean nice room.
No amenities
Like the concept of no reception & all but there are times when one needs to speak to hotel staff to sort issues.
Beds are too small with two single duvets provided for a double bed room.

Stayed one night in Oslo, to go to a concert.
It was announced in my reservation, and again at the DYI- check-in, that I could only check in after 3pm. I got in at 1.45, so took a chance and asked at the desk. I was lucky, and there was a room ready.
The room was nice and spacious, with underfloor heating in the bathroom.
The location of the hotel is perfect for travellers: by foot it's 2 minutes to the central station, 7 minutes to the busterminal, about 10-15 minutes to the ferry to Copenhagen. Smack dab in the centre of town, with a plethora of options for food, shopping, entertainment, and transport anywhere.

The bed was comfortable, the water hot, and the hairdryer worked a treat

I will definitely be back another time.

First of all, when you book this hotel you book it because you're on a budget and want a clean safe place to stay in Oslo without breaking the bank. It's a hotel without the frills and that's fine.

The location is right in downtown Oslo which makes it ideal for exploring the city. Rooms are clean and tidy. Lobby provides shop for essentials and some light food.

The rooms are quite small, and the beds are really cheap and honestly not great for sleeping.

As a Nordic Choice Platinum member I was not recognized in any way, and I was downright refused room upgrade due to some silly reason.

Book Xpress if you're on a budget, but honestly I might prefer Xpress Youngstorget instead.

We are truly sorry that you didn't get recognized as Platinum Member, we will definitively take this back to the team so we can remind everyone about our routines.

At arrival I was greeted by bedsheets containing hair. I don't know if they belonged to the cleaning lady or the previous guest.

The room was not cleaned after my first night. An arrogant, young man at the reception informed me that they clean the room ever 4 days ( not a typo, every four days). According to him this is done to "save the environment". If you want it cleaned every day, it will cost you 100 kr. per session. In other words, we're saving the world here, but pay us 100 kroner and to hell with our principles.

Furthermore, nowhere on their website could I find customer information about this. Had I known it, I wold never have chosen this hotel as there are hotels at comparable prices that give the expected service.

Dear zpald, Thank you for giving us your feedback. We are terrible sorry to hear that you found a hair on the sheets, we can assure you that we clean the rooms after every guests. I really hope you told us as soon as you saw it so we had a chance to assist you with a new room. Yes, we are thinking ahead for the long haul - there is no planet B. So yes, we are an environmental friendly hotel and therefore we clean our staying rooms every forth day. This information are available on our website and external sites under FAQ. It's a shame you felt our staff was arrogant, since he just inform you about what we are but also that cleaning is available but for a small fee. We always recommend our guests to read about the hotels they book so it will be a perfect fit to the expectations. We wish you a lovely weekend, zpald.

A budget hotel with difference. Superb location for the train station and the local attractions, central to everything. I spotted this hotel in lockdown and it was my first choice when we got tickets for Depeche Mode in Oslo. The thing that really drew us to this hotel, apart from the location, was the balcony. We didn't intend staying in the room much but the balcony was brilliant, even in the rain! The hotel was cheap and I really loved the concept.

Self-checkin was simple and easy. The Barception staff and cleaning staff were great, very friendly and very helpful. Everything was clean and worked. A good-sized shower and lots of towels to last the stay.

This hotel concept is budget so cleaning of the room and extra services are extra cost. That said, the room was a good size and the balcony added to the experience, lots to do around the hotel and new people to chat with in the bar. Would have liked more storage space but we were living from a suitcase for a few days so it didn't matter too much. One great thing was late checkout on the Sunday, we were allowed to checkout at 15:30 so we could get a train and didn't have to worry about luggage storage.

Overall, a really good hotel and experience. The balcony is a must have though, especially when it's not raining.

This hotel must have a variety of different sized rooms (judging from other reviews/photos). I requested a quiet room, which it was, but it was also large with a big walk in shower/toilet.
The beds were very comfortable and the temperature of the room easily controlled. There was no view, just the offices opposite but we were only in the room to sleep so it didn’t matter.
The self check-in was very easy and we didn’t interact with any staff although the cleaners are doing a great job.
We liked the location near the Central Station and other public transport.
I can recommend Vippa, a food court near the ferry port for reasonably priced food (closed on Mon & Tue or we would have gone back).
We also liked wandering around Mathallen (another food court) but we didn’t eat there.
Recommend walking along the side of the Akerselva River. Also Apent Backeri (Tranen or Barcode) for a lovely breakfast. Munch Museum and Fram Museum both worth visiting.

About 2 minutes walk (if that) from the central station, very easy to find. Basic, but reasonably priced and comfortable. Having now stayed in another (non-express) Comfort Hotel nearby, this one was actually far more comfortable and cleaner. The room was a fair size, though the bed is right underneath the window, and unfortunately the view was straight into a multi-storey car park (the view from the back of the hotel may be better). Would recommend for a short and reasonable stay.

Comfort Hotel was good value to money. The room was small yet modern and comfortable. The bed was comfy and the black out curtains were useful especially with the late night sun. Despite being small there was wall hangers and underbed storage. The room contained a small desk and TV. Although the room was small the bathroom was a good size in comparison. It was clean and the shower had plenty of power.

The staff were helpful and the contact less check in and check out was easy. We purchased a breakfast bag before we left containing juice, crossaint, apple,yoghurt and granola. It was good value for money.

The hotel was a few minutes walk from the train station and felt very central. Despite this the hotel still felt secure as you needed a room key to use the lift. I would happily stay here again.

Comfy hotel. We initially went to the hotel right next to the station (Comfort hotel central station). However, this was not the right one. We had to go across the square and down a street to find the right place.

Once we got there, it was lovely. Room was large and quiet. Well equipped bathroom.

No tea/coffee in the room. This would have been nice after a long train journey.

Hotel is in a great location and we started our days sightseeing from here with no problems.

Staff were friendly and you can buy breakfast from the fridge at the barception but it is pricey and limited. We found breakfast elsewhere.

Great to see you had a nice experience staying with us and lovely to read about our team, who give their best every day! That is correct, we are lucky enough to have our sister hotel, Comfort Hotel Grand Central, right across the street from us. In Comfort we emphasize on giving our guests what they need while skipping the unnecessary. For our guests who do want the extra, we offer a range of food and beverage in our Barception.

What is the easiest way to get to the hotel from the airport?
Answer from Emelie H
Hey, easiest is by flight express train, takes 20 min and then you just have to walk outside the station (facing Karl Johan Street) and across the traffic lights so turn left. Welcome! :)
