Cochs Pensjonat, Oslo $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
Frugal students and other thrifty travelers are drawn to this 88-room hotel, where no-frills (and slightly shabby) rooms start at around $100. Those who can't live without an in-room TV or telephone and don't want to share the bathroom down the hall with strangers should book one of the 30 en suite rooms, added in 2006, with birch furniture and kitchenettes (for about $27 more). There's no restaurant on the premises, but guests receive discount certificates to neighborhood eateries.
