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.
How to Get There
Very nice hotel, well placed and people working there are very kind. The breakfast is various and very good! The staff is answering well to all questions and are very helpful. It was very nice to stay at the hotel!
The breakfast is the best I’ve ever had. I had booked a different hotel for my last few nights in Oslo but changed to this one when I stumbled upon the breakfast one early, jet-lagged morning. I wanted to take a video of the breakfast and send it back to my wife at home but didn’t want to be obnoxious. It’s mind blowing.
I wasn’t expecting much for the “light evening meal” but it is more than substantial—I actually couldn’t believe how plentiful and tasty the evening buffet was—I thought I must be misunderstanding but no. And it’s served in a really pleasant atmosphere with lounge and terrace access.
The gym is also one of the best I’ve encountered at a hotel this fairly priced. Even has a squat rack (assisted).
I appreciate the practicality of this hotel: I was given one towel and a comforter only large enough for one person (I did think it was weird it doesn’t cover the whole width of the bed but it wasn’t a problem).
If you’re like me and food and exercise are your top priorities then there’s nowhere else to stay in Oslo. It’s also located very near the central station and probably anything else you might want. If I’m ever back in Oslo this is Th e only place I’d stay.
the Breakfast was amazing and with a very good quality, you have also included in the price 2 buffet one during the afternoon and on during dinner .
the style of the hotel is bit dark austere and severe , not really my thing, I prefer colors.
the location is not the best but is in the city center and near the train station.
At the end was a really good choice, I recommend it
