Where to Stay in Oslo
Although far from an inexpensive place to visit, the Norwegian capital of Oslo is a popular tourist destination not only with skiers visiting the country’s slopes but also with those with an eye for a progressive and interesting 21st century city.
Accommodation choices are plentiful with everything from budget priced hostels to five-star luxury hotels that act as temporary homes for everyone from rock stars to royalty. Visitors who take a stroll along the modern waterfront with its funky bars and cafes as well as the multi-million dollar boats might even just bump into one or two.
Oslo also offers some of the easiest and most convenient public transportation options in Scandinavia, while it is also an ideal place to walk around or to discover by bicycle. One of the most popular transport methods is to purchase the ‘Oslo Pass’, which allows public transport within the city Zones 1 and 2 as well as the ferry to Bygdøy museums. The Oslo Pass is on sale at various outlets such as the Oslo Visitor Center and several hotels, campsites and hostels.
For those without an Oslo Pass, all public transport in Oslo and the surrounding county of Akerhus is part of the same ticket and price system through the operating company Ruter and includes buses, trams, subways and local trains. Alternatively, renting a car in Oslo is also an option.

1. Grand Hotel
Grand in both name and stature, the five-star Grand Hotel is an iconic building in the center of the city on the busy Karl Johan Street.

Never far from city centre to middle of nowhere in forest or by boat out the Oslo fjord. Beautiful! All so clean and well kept.
I have a good time but Oslo is expensive country to visit I’ll be back this summer
Absolutely epic great idea short notice, it's not cheap frills but worth every penny trust. Great people can't wait to go back.
While the city is expensive it is easy to find cheap flights and accommodation which can make up for how expensive the city is. There are artsy bars and extremely friendly locals. There is also old and interesting architecture in the city as well as sculpture parks near Oslo including the art by famous artists such as Gustav Vigeland and Louise Bourgeois. The Munch museum is also a must see in the city.
