Oslo has very few warm days during the summer. But if you get there during this period beware some hotels do not have air conditioning. Thon Hotel Europa is one of these. Good location near the Palace. Really small room, I mean really small, and bathrooms that could not possibly be smaller. Oslo has many, many hotels in the city... More

I loved the salmon and my husband, the pastries (every morning). Reception and... More

Perfect budget (at least for residents in Norway) hotel in Oslo. Very well located by the Palace and right next to the main avenue Karl Johan. Rooms had acceptable size for beeing a budget hotel. Breakfast was good with alot of variety.

Oslo is shockingly expensive. One gets warned about this repeatedly, but it's still mindblowing in person. I keep thinking - nay, hoping - that I have the exchange rate wrong. Alas, no. In this city of just 600,000, take what you think would be on the high end of the price range in Manhattan ... then double or triple or... More

Try the areas around Grünerløkka og... More
