We had a fantastic stay at the Clarion Collection. Location is excellent with only 5 minutes walk from the central train station. You are also directly next to Youngstorget which offers great outdoor restaurants and pubs now in the summertime. The main street Karl Johan is also just a few mins walk. The hotel itself has cozy and modern rooms.... More

Free evening meal was basic, but with good salad items, and fine if you were too tired to go out and spend a lot of money on dinner. It would be good to have the eating area, and the lounge upstairs open during... More

The property is very conveniently located, just 2 blocks from the rail station and easy walking distance from downtown shopping area, the harbor, and gorgeous new opera house.
