Cabins in the forest

Oslo is surrounded by a big forest, with lots of cabins. Many of these are for rent, and it's great to stay there. If you come to Oslo to see as much as possible in a few days, it is better to stay somewhere in the city. But if you have a bit of time or have been here before, you can concider one of these cabins instead, at least for a day or two. There are all kinds of cabins, from small and simple to big and luxurious.

If you come in summer you can go walking around in the forest, enjoying the beautiful nature and swim in one of the many lakes. In wintertime you can go cross-country skiing almost everywhere around in the forest. There are also some hills where you can try slalom, downhill, snowboard or telemark.

Unfortunately this page is only in norwegian, but there are links to different organisations renting cabins, so you can contact them and get more info.

Bed & Breakfast

There are some different places that offers bed & breakfast around Oslo. Many of them are private people that rent rooms or appartments to tourists. Some rooms have private bath, but most of the time the bath is shared. Normally they just take cash, but some accept creditcards too. Be sure to ask if you plan on paying with your card.

The different places are situated all around Oslo. Some are close to the city, and some are more far away. Prices vary depending on the location and facilities.

Contact Bed & Breakfast Norway for more info about accomodations.

MS Innvik

This is a very nice and different place to stay. It's a small ship in the fjord with 12 rooms for rent, a café and even a small theatre. It is a good view from the boat and the terrace. Every room has it's own bathroom, and breakfast is included.

The price is 400,- (NOK) for a single room and 700,- for a double, a few of the doubles can also take three people.

Residence Kristinelund: Wow!

Service was definitely with a smile and a friendly face. 'Wow!' was my exclamation when I stepped in the door, the price for this hotel was pretty good - but the place looked amazing! Neat, clean and a bit posh. My room was beautiful and very comfortable, I even had a private balcony with table and chairs!!! The room was spacious, large bed, couch, big wardrobe and a tv. The bathroom was right across the corridor and was very big (and clean) as well.

This bed and breakfast is stunning, the neighbourhood is quiet as well (with lots of big leafy trees lining the streets nearby).

B&B Hasleveien

When I googled for "Bed and Breakfast in Oslo" I found Hasleveien which is run by two friendly Norwegian guys. Hasleveien offers private rooms with shared toilets and showers. Breakfast is not included in the price, but you have access to a kitchen. Apart from that, a few supermarkets are just round the corner.

Apartment Service - Oslo Apartment AS: Cheapest in the city centre?

If you are looking for self catering and staying for a while on a sort of budget, this is probably it. Apartment Service offers fairly simple, furnished apartments about 20-40 sq m in the western city center part of Oslo. Double bed based, price per person is NOK 190,-
Cook for yourself or eat out.
Check their web pages for details.

Cheap, good for longer stays, and when visiting Oslo on business and visiting friends whose house/flat is too small to accommodate you all...

I Hope You Find It!: Best Hostel I Stayed In!

I honestly don't know what the name of my hostel was but I'll do my best to figure out what it was called becuase it was probably the best I stayed in during my travels. The breakfast alone fed me for the whole day!!!! (included)

It was in a fairly good location and the venue was gorgeous. The only downfall of the hostel was this older man who would follow us around....The scary thing was when we were flying out of Sweden a week later - back to England we ran into him at the Airport (this was after lying to him and telling him I was going back to Canada...he was creepy)

Terrific buffet breakfast with meats, cheese, loads of breads, peanutbutter jelly...YUM YUM GOOD!

Oslo accommodation: Place to feel like at your own home

If you like me are going to stay in Oslo for a long period then I would propose you to choose ?Oslo apartments?. This firm owns flats in different districts of the city. The apartments where I lived situated at Friemensgata and were very good. I lived together with one more person in one flat which has small kitchen (with all necessary equipment), bathroom, 2 bedrooms and big hall with TV and sofa. You can see the pictures and decide. If you a going to stay in Oslo just for one night and looking for a cheap accommodation then pension house is a right place to choose.

Knowing friends helps!

We stayed at a friends in Oslo which helped as accomodation is expensive and all the youth hostels are at least 5km out of the centre!
The IYHA hostel in Voss is fantastic, they have a games room, and a great location by the lake where you can hire out kayaks!
The Norway in a Nutshell price includes a cabin on the train which is fine.

Radisson SAS Airport Hotel: Oslo Airport Gardermoen

Clean rooms, but not very comfortable. However, the suites are very nice! The hotel has been built using natural stone, metal, wood and glass to bring out that special mood and theme matching the surroundings.

You will find the hotel close to the terminal, only a few minutes walk from the boarding gates. The only conference facilities at the airport.

Yes Oslo is expensive, but...

Yes Oslo is expensive, but your stay doesn't have to cost loads of money. The Hostelling International Norway (www.vandrerhjem.no/english) Has a complete list of hostels in Norway. You can stay in Oslo for less than $20 a night including breakfast. If you want your own room it's about $30. It's about $3 extra for non-members. It's smart to have a membership, it will also give lots of nice discounts, take a look at the pages. You have to be a member of your national organization. Check www.iyhf.org for details.

This is the latest in...

This is the latest in accomodation in Oslo. The city's richest man thought it was about time that he had his own hotel, and built one. Its situated as close to the Central Station as it is possible and is making a port to the planned New Opera area in the town. I have not been inside yet, but it is said to be very exclusive at least from the inside.
