Scenic view, bad sleep

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 21, 2011

The hotel is located close to a popular hiking and cross-country ski area and in walking distance from Norway's main ski arena (cross-country and jump). From the hotel there is a scenic view of Oslo. If you are not very interesting in skiing you will probably find the place a little deserted. It is possible to take the metro downtown, but it is quite slow.

The was a lot of noice in the room, probably from some kind of air conditioning system so I did not get much sleep.

Unique Quality: There is a great view of Oslo from the hotel and close to outdoor activities as hiking, cross country skiing and sports fishing.

Directions: Hiking and cross-country skiing area

The best hotel in Oslo!

I would like to mention that only 20 minuttes away from the city center you will find a hotel that has a very unique design and a beautiful overview of the city and the inner Oslofjord. It's called Holmenkollen Park Hotel Rica. If you want to have a genuine experience in a typical norwegian surrounding, then this hotel should also be considered. Here's an english language link: http://www.holmenkollenparkhotel.no/default.asp?V_LANG_ID=13

In the city center I believe Grand Hotel and Continental are the best choices.

Hotel with a great view

by written on September 24, 2006

If your willing to spend some serious dough and don't mind being quite a ways away from the major attractions, this hotel would be a great place to stay. It overlooks the city from Holmenkollen.

The wonderful and unique Holmenkollen Hotel. Located of course far from the city centre and not really practical for the usual tourist. Well, I admit I did not stay here yet, but I do plan to drive to Oslo as well one day and maybe this place will be a great option and location to spend the night.

Panorama view over Oslo

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 29, 2005

Great Hotel, especially if you get one of the rooms with a view over the city. It's a bit pricy and the location is slightly away from where it happens. It's fine if you have a rental car.

Unique Quality: Oldfashioned architecture, wonderful view over the city.

Traditional hotel with fantastic view

by written on September 27, 2004

This beautiful hotel in the typical Norwegian wood construction is located a few steps from the Holmenkollen ski jump arena.

We didn't stay there but its unique architecture caught our eyes when we visited the Holmenkollen area.

Directions: Take subway #1 station "Holmenkollen"

The hotel is located in peaceful, rural surroundings. The setting is one of peace and tranquility, with no loud noise from traffic. Make sure to get a room with a view!
