Oslo

Hotels in Oslo

World class restaurants, vibrant cultural sights, and an array of outdoor activities just outside the city limits: there’s a reason that hotels in Oslo are in such high demand.

Oslo is a sprawling city: one of the largest in Europe. Thankfully it has an excellent public transport infrastructure, with buses, trams, trains, boats, and an extensive metro. It’s easy to get around and discover the diverse and lively neighbourhoods of Oslo, no matter where your hotel is.

City Centre

Downtown Oslo is a great place to base yourself if you love to be in the heart of the action. There are plenty of hotels to choose from, perfectly placed for enjoying shows at the National Theatre or just drinking in the atmosphere. Head to Karl Johans Gate for excellent shopping during the day, and a great selection of bars and restaurants during the evening. The historical centre, Kvadraturen, is well worth a gander. It dates back to the 17th Century, and was built in brick after a fire wiped out Oslo’s medieval old town.

Aker Brygge

It’s hard to believe that this trendy neighbourhood down by the harbour was once an industrial no-man’s land. It’s a popular spot for tourists and locals, with excellent seafood restaurants that can seat up to five thousand people at a time. You can take boat tours, browse the boutiques, or simply wander along the waterfront.

Tjuvholmen

Oslo’s newest district is just a short wander from Aker Brygge. Jutting out into the Oslofjord, Tjuvholmen is the art lover’s neighbourhood. There are lots of galleries to wander round: Peter Lund, Galleri Riis, and the architecturally awesome Astrup Fearnley museum are just a few of them. The fine dining restaurants and beautiful outdoor spaces are just the icing on an already delicious cake.

Grünerløkka

This is where Oslo’s young, cool, and beautiful spend their time. Once a working class neighbourhood, it’s undergone a serious gentrification process to become the hippest neighbourhood in town. Independent coffee shops, quirky boutiques, and a vibrant nightlife make it an excellent place to visit: whether you’re looking for a hotel in the area or just visiting for the day. At the weekend all of the shops close, but if you’re in the mood for some retail therapy you can head to the park and browse the excellent antique market.

And the surrounding countryside

One of the best things about Oslo is how easy it is to get out and enjoy a bit of nature. Oslo hotels make a great base whether you want to go climbing in Oslo Summer Park, skiing in Oslo Winter Park,

or kayaking in the Oslofjord. With horse riding, mountain biking, and ziplining on offer too, there’s plenty to keep sporty spices happy.
