A laid-back stay in the heart of Oslo's cultural centre, at a contemporary base with a historic twist, including buffet breakfast

Sitting right in the historic centre of Oslo, Best Western Karl Johan blends in well with its surroundings; this heritage property dates back to 1899. The grand lobby, corridors and reception areas, hung with large portraits and carpeted with thick Oriental rugs, befit the building's history, while the guestrooms exhibit a contrasting, contemporary style.

The hotel's main draw is its location, right in the heart of the city. The relaxed atmosphere for which Oslo is famous can be felt everywhere, and the city's myriad cultural attractions are right on your doorstep. Armed with a hearty packed lunch courtesy of the hotel restaurant, head out to explore the exhibitions at the National Gallery, marvel at preserved Viking longships at the Vikingskipshuset, or enjoy a picnic in the serene Slottsparken.

Breakfast is a hearty affair, with classic hot and cold dishes – sausages, eggs, waffles – alongside distinctly Norwegian offerings, such as sandwiches, meats, cheeses, and a range of smoked fish dishes. The restaurant can also provide lunches on request; perfect to take with you on a day's urban exploration.


Slap bang in the middle of Oslo, on its main street Karl Johans Gate, this hotel is perfectly place for exploring the historic heart of the Norwegian capital. Those of a cultural bent will be particularly in their element, whether you fancy a browse of the National Museum of Contemporary Art or a refined evening of classical music at the Oslo Concert Hall. Should you fancy a break from all the cosmopolitan urbanity, the nearby trees and duck ponds of Slottsparken – surrounding the Royal Palace – make a picturesque backdrop for an afternoon stroll.
