Clarion Collection Folketeateret is a boutique design hotel in the Norwegian capital and housed in one of Oslo’s most famous buildings and one of Norway’s only Art Deco buildings. Dating from the 1930s, it was inspired by the Empire State Building and was the city’s opera house until 2008. Today, the comfortable rooms pay homage to their past with a hip design evoking mid-century Manhattan.
The hotel’s location means you’re right in the heart of things in Oslo. The iconic square Youngstorget is right on your doorstep and Karl Johans Gate – the city’s main thoroughfare – is a stone’s throw away. City landmarks like the Royal Palace and Palace Park are within walking distance, and so too is Oslo Cathedral, an iconic building dating back 300 years. After a day’s sightseeing, inventive European cuisine awaits at the hotel restaurant, and the stylish, well-stocked Lobby Bar is the perfect place for a nightcap. The hotel scored a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Myself and my mother spent 3 nights in this fabulous hotel! When we arrived we were greeted by Camilla who was super friendly and helpful and even upgraded us!
Our room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable and the adjoining bathroom had gorgeous Rituals toiletries.
Breakfast was delicious! Plenty of choice and everything was very fresh and replenished often. Fantastic selection of fruit, pastries, fish, cold meats and hot foods. The afternoon treats were lovey and it was great to enjoy them on the terrace outside in the sunshine.
The location of the hotel is superb-close to the train station and city centre. Modern decor and great facilities. On check-out Live was efficient and friendly too-all staff were very smiley and courteous!
Would 100% recommend this hotel to anyone spending a few days in Oslo! Can’t wait for my return visit!
