Karl Johan Hotel er et historisk og ærverdig hotell sentralt på Karl Johans gate. Hotellet er med sin lune, klassiske art deco-stil, ett av Oslos beste hoteller. Karl Johan Hotel kan best beskrives som et flott 4-stjerners hotell med høy standard og komfort med en uformell atmosfære. Her har du fantastisk utsikt over parken, Stortinget, Slottet og Karl Johans gate., spennende interiørløsninger der nytt møter gammelt, samt nærhet til shopping og kulturliv. Med sine 157 nyrenoverte rom i ulike kategorier, møterom, konferansesal, lounger, bar og restaurant tiltrekker hotellet et bredt spekter av gjester uten å miste den sjarmerende byhotell følelsen. Frokosten inntas under glasskuppelen, hotellets hjerte og sjel mellom bygårdene, og nyt gjerne et glass i resepsjonen eller loungen og følg med på gatelivet. Det er lett å finne oss. Vi har en vakker fasade fra 1889 og inngang fra pulserende Karl Johans gate. Velkommen!

Perfect location. Probably the best location in all of downtown. Terrific staff whom are service minded and attentive. We were meeting friends and they waited in the lobby. While waiting the staff offered coffee or tea to our guests whom were not even staying at the hotel. The hotel has had a total makeover and is pristine with modern and trendy colors and furniture. Breakfast is good with omelets and eggs made to order. Highly recommended for romantic weekend, work related stays, weekend with friends and family.

Fantastice Hotel, Very Center, Great and Helpful Staff. Lots of Choices in Breakfast. All is new and modern .Take note that the Hotel is under Renovation so the entrance is on the other side. They have different room so if your not satisfied for your room you could upgrade for a fee. if you book an economy room dont expect to get a standard room.

Hotel is located in a heart of Oslo. 10 minutes walking distance from Oslo S, Parliament and Royal Palace. Hotel is under the renovation currently, however it does not cause any inconvenience. Rooms are very affordable, have everything you may need : hairdryer, tv, WiFi, etc. breakfast is amazing , you will find everybody you need. I want to emphasize the quality of service here. It is exceptional ( I got offered early check out, free storage of my luggage free of charge). The receptionist Diana was super professional and very polite. I’ve got a really good impression after staying here and I would definitely consider staying here again. Thank you!
