Reviewed 27 May 2014

The location is good, there is plenty of space in the rooms, the hotel serves evening food between 6 and 9 pm, I think it is nice to not have to eat at a restaurant every night, as I usually are in Oslo for business.

Superb and friendly service, great location, stylish rooms, excellent breakfast and very good evening buffet which is included in the room price.
Been thinking about it and can honestly say that I can't find anything negative to say =)

Nice location , excellent breakfast, room was a bit small, maybe go for a superior next time. Staff friendly, great roof terrace. WIFI Spot on.
Slightly alarming were the amount of Gypsies outside on main street, although they were friendly enough, maybe because of the Drugs they were openly passing round.

Well having stayed in Oslo numerous times in the past, this was the first time i opted for one of The Clarion Collection Group - they have around half a dozen hotels in the central Oslo area - i based my decision on two things price & extras such as the complimentary light evening meal - which is very handy as Oslo is famed for it's expensive food & drink when eating out.

The room was small - but for a single traveler just stopping 2 nights it was adequate. Was surprised not to see a wardrobe or a few draws in which to place clothes - (but they do provide coat hangers and hooks on the wall)

The mattress was very soft - this is common for Oslo - but for someone like me who prefers a strong stiff mattress - i dont get the best of a nights sleep.
Another thing to consider is you dont get full quilts to cover the bed - just large enough to cover the person

Room was very quiet & you could not hear other noise outside of the room.

The evening meal was fair & simple but really you only have one choice which is varied each evening - but even if you dont like the main course - the bread is really nice.

Staff were really friendly & good & based on that i would recommend this hotel to anyone & would strongly consider staying here again on my next visit to Oslo.

As far as I am concerned, this place deserves its accolades. Efficient and friendly staff, an amazing breakfast, and an included 'light' dinner that I found to be generous and tasty. My room was on the small side, but we'll-designed and comfortable. Interesting building, central location. Highly recommended!

This hotel was a real find. The rooms are standard issue European-sized rooms. That is to say, they are small compared to rooms in the US, and without much storage space. But how much time does a tourist spend in the room?

That said, the selling point for this hotel,at least for US visitors, is the complimentary light dinner served buffet-style. Do not be misled, this is a quality dinner with soup, entrees and appetizers. Since even a light meal for 2 at a mid-level Oslo restaurant will easily exceed $100 (yes, it is true, Oslo is an expensive place to dine out at a restaurant), this hotel is well-priced. Additionally, the breakfast buffet was also outstanding.

I had stayed at the Radisson Blu Plaza in Oslo for two nights when I arrived in Oslo for business reasons. But the Clarion would have been (and will be) my first choice. Staff was friendly and informative, and highly professional. This is not a knock against the Radisson (see my review elsewhere), where the staff and breakfast were also outstanding.

Easy walking distance around the corner from the central train station with access to bus and tram transportation right outside the door, I would highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Oslo.

I worked in Oslo for quite a while and have tested most of the hotels located in central Oslo. Folketeatret is by far the best hotel I have stayed at. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The interior of the hotel and rooms is modern and exactly in my taste. The rooms are spacious and and the beds are very comfortable. The dinner buffé that is included has a very high standard.
