“Always the best choice”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Clarion Collection Hotels always provide great service at a reasonable price. I travel a lot, both for private and work reason, and I always try to stay in one of the CCH.
CC Folketeateret is located only few minutes walking from the Oslo central train station, and a lot of bus/tram pass by so it is easy to move around the city.
The staff is always very helpful and welcoming, the rooms are well kept, furnished and clean. There is only one type of soap both for body and hair, so if you do not like this arrangement, bring your shampoo.
Breakfast is my favorite at CC Folketeateret, a lot of options and everything is excellent. Also the dinner buffet or light dinner is very good and I found the idea lovely because after a long day walking around the city or of work, I do not always want to go out again for dinner. And if I want something more for dinner, I can choose between the restaurant of the hotel, Grilleriet, and many others in the area.

Arrived late evening. Greeted by a friendly, smiley face. The receptionist was really helpful ( I had booked the wrong nights, she sorted the whole thing out without making me feel like a nuisance ).
Our room was lovely. A family room with two bedrooms and an adjoining balcony. The rooms were clean, tidy and really nicely done up. We felt at home straight away.
Breakfast was amazing. Just about every breakfast food was there. There was plenty of room and it was well run. A brilliant start to our days of sightseeing.
We also took advantage of the complimentary evening buffet. Really enjoyed that too.
Overall, the experience we had in the Clarion Folkteater turned our stay in Oslo from good to great. I would recommend without hesitation.

Ok, so I am told this hotel is not in the best part of Oslo Centre, you would never have known! Right on the doorstep of the Fly Torget express train from Oslo Airport and very close to all other trams/underground stations.

A welcoming reception with free drinks/fruit, the room was perfect and even had a separate toilet (great when sharing a twin with a friend) the room had everything you needed, however missing big bath towels and the little extras like toiletries (although there is a soap dispenser).

A great lounge offering free pancakes and drinks in the afternoon and a separate evening supper (however we did not try this).

But what makes this place stand out from the rest is the amazing breakfast, I have stayed in some pretty decent hotels and never seen anything like this, they had every single thing you could think off, the place then turns into a very cosy bar in the evening, again extremely welcoming and cosy enough for a romantic couple and spacious enough for a group

Centrally located and handy for transport links, Folketeateret is a lovely hotel. Expensive compared to the rest of Europe, though Norway isn't a cheap country by any means, and as such was actually good value compared to others. Stylish and spotless decor with very helpful and courteous staff. Our room was on the 3rd floor and although a little compact, was well appointed and very comfortable, with Sat TV, wi-fi, big bed, creative lighting, and an excellent bathroom. The breakfast is one of the highlights of our stay... hard to work out what wasn't available! Buffet style of cooked, continental, Norwegian... you name it and all served until late. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when back in Oslo.

I stayed here for a nite and find this hotel very pleasant . though room is a bit small.the plus points are that the hotel is clean n new. There is also free coffee n tea throughout the day at the reception, free tea time food and lastly dinner .yes free dinner at the 7th floor lounge with great ambience.dinner food was pleasant and it can be crowded though by 7pm. Overall, I would stil stay here as the location is very near the main railway station and other attractions. I willl stay here again definitely though I have tried other hotels in oslo already but find none comparable to here so far overall.
