A striking five-star hotel with sleek Scandinavian design, an acclaimed restaurant and chic suites
With its sleek Scandinavian design and striking, modern aesthetic, the five-star First Hotel Grims Grenka certainly makes its presence felt in Oslo. Voted coolest Norwegian design hotel by online newspaper Nettavisen, the hotel is, not surprisingly, a favorite for photo shoots and launches. Here, you can stretch out on the designer furniture, admire the modern artwork and maybe even get some design ideas to take home with you.
There’s much more to this hotel than just its good looks, though. The acclaimed MADU restaurant, with its cutting-edge Scandinavian cuisine, attracts plenty of attention, and the lobby bar offers exquisite craft cocktails and an appealing array of Scandinavian microbrews. You can enjoy the view from the rooftop bar during the warmer months, or, when it gets colder, head to the cozy Brooms & Hatchets bar for a drink that’ll warm you right up. To top it all off, the hotel’s central location puts you within walking distance of many of Oslo's most popular sights.
The suites are spacious and tastefully decorated, with color palettes and stylish accents that evoke the different seasons of the year. You’ll find sleek, contemporary furnishings, beautiful wooden flooring and high-end fixtures and finishes. The Garden suite starts you off at 462 square feet and offers views of the atrium. For more space, upgrade to a Loft suite, decorated in elegant red and black hues, or a 750-square-foot Autumn suite, featuring soothing fall colors.
Restaurant MADU mixes old and new cooking techniques to create a modern twist on traditional Scandinavian cuisine. The menu features seasonal ingredients, and the chefs here always strive to always use organic and locally sourced products. The restaurant was honored with impressive reviews from two leading Norwegian newspapers, Aftenposten and Dagbladet.
Boasting an ideal city-center location, First Hotel Grims Grenka is less than a mile from Oslo Central Station, a 15-minute walk from the renowned shopping, dining and entertainment district of Aker Brygge and only a few blocks from the harbor. The 13th-century Akershus Castle, the waterfront Astrup Fearnley Museum and the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet are all within walking distance, as well.
