I spent some time just walking along this street. There are many shops and cafés there, you can also see the Parliament building. Again, the weather was not too nice and we planned to leave Oslo that day so my time there was limited. I...More
Try to avoid the weekend especially as it is a sea of tourists. We enjoyed strolling its length with the newly opened flowers adorning it. It is scenic and dotted with interesting architecture and parks.
A number of shops and cafes as per any high street, but is a central link from Oslo S station, passing the cathedral, parliament and small park with a ice skating in the winter (bring your own skates) leading up to the Royal Palace with...More
This is the main street through central Oslo with shops, cafes, and some ritzy hotels. It also passes Parliament, and the National Gallery, and leads to the Royal Palace. There’s some great architecture to see along the way. But lest I give the impression it’s...More
The busiest and the most crowded part of this street is between the Parliament building and the central station. This part is full of shops with well-known brands. You can see here many artists as well.

I stayed here during the summer (late June). Two nights a week they had some sort of summer dance party going on. It was terribly noisy because of the constant thumping of the bass from the music. If I recall correctly, when the dance was on a week night, the music thumped until 11 pm. If it was a weekend night (Fri or Sat) it went until 1 am. The rest of the nights were quiet. I will not stay here again because it was not quiet those two nights each week. I was at this hotel 12 days so was able to 'enjoy' 4 nights of bass shaking the building.
To answer your other question, the hotel is very close to public transportation. I loved the convenience. They also had a good breakfast buffet that had a nice variety of foods.
