Room size- Too small

Best Western Karl Johan Hotel needs to work on its rooms as the rooms are cramped, the size is as good as a shoe box. Guests have expressed their disliking over staying in a room where there's no storage space and walking room.


Long wait for breakfast

The Breakfast Room offers a fine breakfast with ample options to treat the taste buds of visitors, but in some instances guests had to experience a delay first to be seated and then in getting their food to the table.


Continuous noise

Due to the central location of the hotel, some of the past guests have complained about continuous noise from outside and the famous nightclub thus disturbing their sleep. Sacrificing sleep on a holiday has annoyed some of the past guests.
