From cheap and cheerful places to sassy suites and designer hotels.
The Norwegian capital has more than 50 hotels which cater to every taste and budget. The overall quality is very good, and Oslo’s hotels are modern, clean and priced lower than you might expect.
Oslo is home to many prominent hotels, including Hotel Continental, the only Norwegian member of The Leading Hotels of the World. The historic Grand Hotel is a city landmark, and the 37-floor high Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel is the second tallest hotel in Northern Europe.
A large breakfast buffet is usually included in the price, and the majority of Oslo’s hotels are conveniently located in or near the city center.
Yes it can easily be done! For those travelling on a tight budget, Oslo offers a wide selection of guest houses, youth and family hostels, private accommodation and camp sites. Some of these places are only open during summer, but Bogstad Camping, Perminalen Hotel, Oslo Hostel Central, Anker Hostel and Oslo Youth Hostel Haraldsheim are smart choices year-round.
The city’s increasing popularity as a travel destination means that Oslo’s hotels are often full, so booking ahead is always recommended. If you arrive in Oslo and need a hotel for the night, the tourist information center will be happy to help you find a place to stay.
Ambitious architects and young chefs are taking Oslo to new heights. If that doesn’t make you dizzy enough, try hiking to Galdhøpiggen, Norway’s highest peak at 2469 metres above sea level.
Between the Oslofjord and the forests lies Norway’s capital and largest city, with its vibrant social scene and special combination of nature experiences and city life.
Oslo’s unique location means almost unlimited opportunities for fun. Hike in the forest, swim in the fjord and go to a concert – all on the same day.
A stay in Oslo doesn’t have to cost a fortune. In fact there is a lot you can do for free in the Norwegian capital.
