At this spanking new hotel you can record your own hit song in bed

Comfort Hotel Karl Johan in Oslo fine-tunes the guest experience with an in-house studio and treasures from the history of music.

Nowadays, everyone knows how new hotels need to offer that little extra to stand out in the crowd, whether it's culinary food, spectacular design or spa facilities.

Comfort Hotel Karl Johan in Oslo, which opened its doors Saturday, has literally decided to march to the beat of a different drum.

The hotel is namely building a fully equipped music studio, which will be accessible to future guests working professionally with music.  

– The hotel is built in honour of culture and music. It is therefore very gratifying that we have put in place the first Nordic in-house hotel music studio. We are looking forward to welcome creative souls, and to see which hit songs we can give birth to, Robert Holan, General Manager at Comfort Hotel Karl Johan, says in a statement.

In addition to the music studio, two rooms are open for all guests interested in recording. In these rooms, guests get the opportunity to connect to their own computer and record music while "lying in bed."

The rooms are decorated in collaboration with Warner Music Norway, and stacked with treasures from international and Norwegian music history.

- It's wonderfully cool that Oslo gets a hotel with recording facilities in-house. We know that many visitors will appreciate a place where they can endorse creativity and production right outside of the beddroom. The love for music and culture is fully in line with WMG's values, so there was no doubt in mind that we would support the project, Guttorm Raa, General Manager at Warner Music Norway says.

The studio is built in collaboration with the music collective Need Music, consisting of DJs, musicians, singers and producers.

The hotel itself is set in a historical location: It is housed by the "Frølich-building" – a former matchstick factory – which now plays an important part in Oslo's cultural life, with several famous clubs and concert venues.

The opening Saturday was otherwise a "soft launch". An official and greater launch will take place during May, according to Hotels magazine
