I stayed at the Clarion Collection Hotel Folketeateret during a vacation. The staff for super friendly and helpful, and I felt welcomed and right at home the moment I stepped into the lobby. Their breakfast is simply to die for. Several kinds of bread, cheeses, cereal, juice, coffee, tea, infused water, eggs. The list goes on! The chefs never neglected... More

The location of the hotel is central and the access is through the folketeatret gallery. The check in was quick, the staff were helpfull, the room was clean. The downside, is the amount of itinerant people sitting at the entrance of the hotel, the smell of mold near the elevator. And the extremely narrow room with lack of hangers and... More

As per instructions on the website the hotel were given a month warning of the need for a special diet, with a reminder the week before. However, the reception still did not provide the necessary instructions to the kitchen and no appropriate food was available. I ended up with an evening meal of plain rice and olives. Unacceptable.

The hotel is in a very central location with easy access to the train station and most the sites. The room was small but very comfortable. I took a room on an upper floor at the back which was quiet except for the sound of the town hall bells ringing occasionally. I did not hear any noise from the night... More

I stayed here for a night having travelled to Oslo to see a concert with my teenage daughter. My initial experience wasn't great. I had requested a twin superior room at the time of booking.

Lovely large room with fantastic bathroom and separate loo. The breakfast was awesome, with a huge variety of food. The evening meal was a bit like a school dinner, but OK for an evening snack...the bread was delicious.

This hotel is OK for Scandinavia. Because it is Scandinavia don’t expect any luxury. Rooms are tiny and bathroom super-tiny. As in many other hotels in Oslo there is no air-condition at the hotel, so the summer can be quite unpleasant.
