Reviewed May 8, 2014

I worked in Oslo for quite a while and have tested most of the hotels located in central Oslo. Folketeatret is by far the best hotel I have stayed at. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The interior of the hotel and rooms is modern and exactly in my taste. The rooms are spacious and and the beds are very comfortable. The dinner buffé that is included has a very high standard.

Stayed: November 2013, traveled on business

This is an excellent hotel in central location. Professional staff, small but comfy rooms, and a super breakfast: Organic food available all the way tasting fresh and delicious. And this is the only place where I have found cod liver oil shots available : ). If you don't want to walk around looking for a dinner place, the breakfast place is actually a bar and grill with some delicious food and wonderful wine in the evening. Very nice indeed.

Best breakfast in Oslo, very good service at front desk, spacious rooms - good quality beds. Bonus: Evening meal for free. It's also only a short distance to the Oslo Central station (airport express train) and city center.

There was no parking, and parking in the streets is limited, and very expecive in parking houses. However, the hotel has an agreement with one indoor parking close by, and thus you get a small discount. Ask at the reception. - Our room was comfortable and quite spacious, and the beds very comfortable. However, we were bothered with the darkness of the room: very little light came through the windows because of the position of the room, and the dark colors added to this. The bathroom was nice, but since the tiles were in dark gray or black,and our eyesight is not that of a teenager anymore, it was not easy to use the mirror for things needing a clear sight. This could probably be compensated if the lighting was more efficient,
though. If you are dependant on a cool room to sleep in, the climate control could not be adjusted to less than 18 degrees. We found no instructions for the use of the heating/climate control,so when we attempted to get it as low as possible, we somehow turned the heating in the bathroom off. Ans however hard we tried, we were not able to turn it on again. This made the shower next morning into a quite cold experience. We stays there only for one night, but if we had stays longer, we would have been bothered with the very limited capacity of the open wardrobe. But the room was very quiet, we were not bothered with traffic noise at all. The breakfast was simply delicious! - All in all the hotel is very good, but when we have been quite critical, it is because we compare the quality to the price. As far as we have understood, they have a flexible price system. This means that you pay according to buisy and not busy days and seasons. We stays there from Tuesday to Wednesday, and pays allomst twice as much as if we had stayd from Wednesday to Thursday. They explained that this was due to conferences and business activity, and thus a lot of need for rooms on Tuesdays. If you are flexible with when to stay, I would advice that you communicate with them in order to find the cheapest options. In that way you could get a fantastic bargain and value for money. Also I have to mention that you get afternoon I havetea and coffee with pasterys and a evening warm meal included in the price. If you are able to make use of these offers, it could lower your expenses even more. On the topfloor there is a very cosy lounge with a view over the city, and above it there is an open air terrace for those in need of a cigarette. Both places are closed from late at night until sometime in the day.

Dear Mature_coupple,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel!

You are absolutely right about the rates - they are driven by demand, and during business days they do tend to be a lot higher than during the weekends. If you go to our website you will always find the lowest rates for your next stay.

We hope to welcome you back on another occasion!

Kind regards,

Centrally located, with great art, and creative touches, this hotel also features an AMAZING buffet breakfast which was so good I almost didn't need any lunch.

The included light supper was also appreciated, but ultimately not that satisfying.

Friendly staff, very helpful, directed me to the tasty Italian restaurant across the walkway.

Gym a little spartan (TV wouldn't come on), but otherwise fine with cool modern art.

Be sure to enjoy the farewell Kate Moss gives you as you exit the hotel ;)

One of the few hotels in Oslo offering free light dinner, it is indeed a big plus for business trip when choosing hotel in such an expensive city.

The room I got is spacious at lower floors with terrace. nice beds and clean bathroom.

It is at the heart of Eastern City Centre of Oslo with walking distance to the train station and Karl Johans gate. Trams are running outside Folketeatret entrance. Its also near Brugata which is lively at nights.
