    Nice 4-star hotel

    by

    We chose the hotel because it was by far the cheapest option during our stay in Oslo in June 2006. It was on the very outskirts of the city but since we were driving anyway it didn't make much difference to us and made the parking infinitely easier.
    The personnel was good and very helpful, even when we made them explain how to get to the centre of Oslo and where we should park. The food was gorgeous and that hotel goes down as one of the best breakfasts on our holiday.

    Unique Quality: Soria Moria has a great view. And when I say great I mean GREAT! It's up higher than the rest of Oslo and the views at sunset in the summer are something indescribable.
    And if that wasn't enough then you also have the use of saunas and a pool, which is perfect for an early morning swim before breakfast.

    Directions: After the Holmenkollen ski jump turn left and drive uphill until you get to the hotel.

    Comfort and tradition in a fairytale ambience

    by

    A wonderful setting high in the woods with a great view. It's a 20 minutes journey to get there by tram from the city centre + a few minutes walk uphills to get to the hotel area. )

    (Of course you can always go there by taxi, which I would recommend to do if you bring heavy luggage, and/or have a tight schedule. Also consider if you have time to stay this far outside town, in some cases a more central hotel would be more practical.)

    Having no schedule to keep during this weekend, and a little relieved to get away from downtown Oslo, I quite enjoyed this tram ride, and found it both picturesque and relaxing. The snow was still decorating the hills and trees at this altitude of the city, and the architecture of the villas we were passing along the way were a pleasant sight. Approaching the Voksenkollen most houses are held in dark brown/tar coloured with red window frames, to respect the unity of building style in the area. This adds to the almost magical atmosphere of entering a Norwegian folk tale in the middle of the woods.

    Unique Quality: The hotel leaves nothing to wish for in comfort, it even has a warm, indoor pool for its guests.
    Still it manages to keep a Norwegian rustic and traditional style with use of natural materials in the interior, which suits its setting in the middle of the nature.

    In winter it's possible to hire skis next to the station, where the tram stops.

    It remains to say that SORIA MORIA is the name of the fairy palace from one of our most typical and beloved Norwegian folk tales, the dream palace situated at the top of the hill, shrouded in a blue light, welcoming the weary wanderer that has reached the end of his quest.

    Directions: Tramway (Holmenkollbanen) to Voksenkollen, then walk for about 10 minutes following the signs to Soria Moria.
    Alternatively go by car/taxi

Hotels in the Holmenkollen area

by Saagar about Several

As I have lived in the neigbourhood I have never had a need to stay overnight, but I have visited for conferences and day visits, their restaurants etc. The restaurants of these hotels alone may be worth a visit.

The hotels are:
Holmenkollen Park Hotel Rica (www.holmenkollenparkhotel.no), tel 22929000.

Lysebu Konferansesenter (www.lysebu.com), tel 22142390 (conferences mainly).

Soria Moria (www.soriamoria.no), tel 23222400 (conferences mainly).

VoksenÄsen Kultur & Konferansehotell (www.voksenaasen.no), tel 221413090. All these hotels have a good view of the city, good recreational facilities within an armlength's distance, are well equipped for conferences and business needs, extremely well developed menus and restaurants. The only hitch apart from their rack rates are the distance from the city centre: you need a bus or to take the metro downtown, a good 20 mintutes plus. If after a late, late night in town wants to get up to Holmenkollen again you may discover that taxi is the only option, and that will set you back more than a few NOKs.

A brown restaurant

by Rusket about Soria Moria Restaurant og Spisesal

The interior is what we call "brown cafe", that is neoclassicistic. I doubt it has been changed since the place was new. And that is why it is so charming. The restaurant has banqueting rooms on the first floor (second floor in norwegian) suitable for bigger parties like weddings etc. It is part of "Kulturslottet Soria Moria" (The cultural castle Soria Moria), with a cinema, the Torshov Theatre and a PUB. I have only eaten there once, and was very satisfied with what I ate: Chicken breast with gorgonzola and apricot sauce.

Soria Moria

by Rusket

The cultural palace Soria Moria (Kulturslottet Soria Moria). Multicultural meeting point in Torshov.

The name comes from an old folk tale, about a poor boy who fights trolls to free princesses and marries the youngest of them :-)

The building was raised in 1928 by the factory owner Arne Wilhelm Blystad, the architect was Thorvald Astrup. It is built in the neoclassicistic style. Torshov was at that time inhabited by poor factory workers, building a cultural center with cinema, theater and a library was revolutionary at that time.

The Deichmanske Library has moved out, which gives room for other cultural activities like multicultural performances, film festivals, concerts and theater, in addition to movies. The restaurant has entertainment rooms for bigger occasions like weddings etc.

Ryanair to Oslo

by kimij

HI everyone
Have just looked for some cheap flights(anywhere) for husband and myself to take a break,a couple of days for his birthday.
Ryanair look good(and cheap) but fly to Torp,from there I looked at the Soria moria hotel which has good reviews however I guess it is outside of Oslo which means how do I get there and what is about
in this area??
perhaps we would be best to stay in oslo itself??
so what do you think would be best any suggestions would be greatly recieved!
OOh and is it likely to snow the 1St weekend in December!???

RE: Ryanair to Oslo

by knerten

Soria Moria is a a very fabulous hotel, but it IS outside Oslo, so you would need a taxi from downtown ($$$$$$). The subway will take to some way towards it, but you'' still have to walk some 15 minutes, not good if you're carrying suitcases. And...at that time of year, the hotel is likely to be shrouded in fog, if the the weather patterns change, which they often do in December. February is uaually more stable. In short, if you want to see Oslo, better stay in the city. If it's a hotel break you want, at a hotel that's really out there, in the middle of the woods, go for it, but maybe hubby wants to do something more exciting than lounging at a typical conference hotel....???
Snow may be likely, but no guarantee.

Torp is 2hr drive from Oslo. Not sure about bus, if train you shall have to go into the close-by city Sandefjord. I do not know from where in GB you are coming, have you considered Newcastle to Bergen/Stavanger and then to Oslo?
Top hotels in downtown Oslo is Grand and Continental. Expensive, though.

RE: Ryanair to Oslo

by Saagar

There will be a bus (TorpEkspressen) waiting for every RyanAir flight at Torp to take passengers to Oslo and intermediate stops as per need. 1 hr 45 minutes. NOK 130 last time I did it.

Ciao the Sandefjord area is very nice. The town of Sandefjord is good and near it there is the nice town of Tonsberg. If you want to go to Oslo there is a bus that departure about 30 minutes after the landing of the Ryanair flight. It cost 130 NOK and after 2 hour you arrive to the Oslo Bus Station, just to the side of Oslo S Terminal and in the heart of the town!!
