“Close to Everything”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Clarion Collection Folketeateret for 3 nights during July. This hotel is conveniently located in a downtown area. Just a short walk from the pedestrian street, Karl Johan's Gate, and a few minutes more to the Bay Area....ferries to the museums, etc. we found the staff to be helpful and attentive. Breakfast buffet is excellent. Oslo is an expensive city. This hotel serves a light dinner every night which is included in the room price. This turned out to be a big money saver. The rooms are small, albeit adequate. Water pressure is good in the shower. This property would benefit by providing a shelf in the bathroom in order to store toiletries. All in all I would recommend and visit this hotel again if I were in Oslo again.

Good location. Really liked that we could eat for free every evening at the hotel, that saved us a lot of money. Very helpful staff. Best hotel we have experienced in Oslo. I have nothing negative to say about this hotel, and can recommend it to everyone.

First, the many good things said in other reviews are true. The breakfast buffet is incredible and we're still talking about it months later. The evening "snack" is a satisfying simple supper, with one family-style main dish. Location is quite convenient. Restaurant staff persons were very friendly, especially after they'd seen my husband and I day after day for almost two weeks. But therein was the problem, for us. Our standard room, while well appointed and trendy in decor, was just far too cramped for two leisure travelers on extended stay. No storage, no closets (just two open hooks off the front of the wall-sized entertainment unit), no counters in the bathroom... it would be fine for a business traveler, or maybe even a couple for just a day or two. But for a couple with two suitcases staying for almost two weeks, it was far too cramped to be optimal. No room to unpack, barely room to move past each other beside the bed. We requested a larger room (i.e., a paid upgrade) as soon as we saw the situation but nothing opened during our entire stay; we would have changed hotels except the front desk agent kept saying something larger might open up in the next couple of days (hmmm). As much as we loved the breakfast and location, we would make a different choice next time for an extended stay.

Dear Valued Guest -

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us regarding your recent stay at our hotel. We appreciate your feedback regarding the room size and I can understand that a standard room might be to small for a longer stay for to persons. November was a month with high occupancy, that toughener with our upgraded rooms like the superior, Deluxe rooms and suites are very popular rooms we were unfortunately fully booked on many nights.
Please contact us directly for help finding the right room for your needs if you should plan another tri to Oslo.

Hope to see you again.

This hotel is truly a fabulous European Hotel experience. The service is incredible - the staff will do whatever is needed to make you happy. Also, the breakfast buffet included is the nicest breakfast buffet I have ever seen (free in a hotel or at a restaurant!) Multiple types of bread, smoked fish, smoothies, fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, sausage, you name it. Really worth the money right there. Then, they have a "light dinner" included in the evenings which we happened to take advantage of. Now, if you want an Oslo restaurant experience, this is not, but it is certainly a wonderful dinner if you just want a meal. A salad bar, cheese and meat layout, a soup, breads, plus an entree, vegetable and potato are all there - and Dessert. You just have to buy your drinks, which I think is fair.
The rooms are beautiful, small, yes, but again, this is a European hotel and I find the room size very typical. There are some that have balconies that I bet are bigger, but we didn't stay in one of those. Also, above the dinner area, on the 8th floor is a very large lounge with a TV and a balcony so a very nice surprise and place to just sit and relax.
Location is very convenient for those travelling around Europe with only 2 blocks to the train station.
