Soria Moria Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 July 2014

This hotel is nestled in the hills above Oslo and a great place for a destination conference. It is near the end of the T-bahn line (with an additional 10 minute walk) in the forest. It has superb views of Oslo and Oslo fjord, but I would not recommend this for someone looking for a base for sightseeing in Oslo as it requires a 45-minute ride one-way into Oslo central plus the 10 minute walk already described. The rooms are nice and the common areas are well-maintained in modern Scandinavian design. The breakfast spread is excellent with a wide variety of choices and superb views. Take a hike through the forest to the Holmenkollen nordic ski jump. The front desk can assist with a map of the trails.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have views, ask for one of these otherwise you may be looking into an exterior wal...

Thank you for giving us a very nice review ! In fact, quite a lot of tourists find their way to Soria Moria Hotel because they want the peaceful quietness a bit outside the city centre - and, of course, the beautyful view over the Mountains and the Oslo Fjord.

I really enjoyed the food at Soria Moria, especially the lunch was very nice. The view from the dining room was amazing, especially during the daytime when you could see for miles in every direction! The rooms are very nice, but the bathrooms feel rather dated. The water pressure in the shower was awful.

Spent a night at det hotel for a work seminar. The rooms are newly refurbished and the bed was comfortable. The bathrooms did not see any of this refurbishment though and is looking a bit out of date. The main issue was the lack of cleaning in the bathrooms though. 3-4 pubic hair behind the bathroom door showed that there is no cleaning behind there.

Otherwise the hotel is nice. Has a good view and the food, and facilities are good.

Thank you for your review. We apologize for the poor cleaning you unfortunately experienced. We have high standards when it comes to cleaning, and this should not occur. It would be very helpful for us if you send me an e-mail with information about which room you stayed in, and at what date.

+ Very comfy bed
+ Good food (breakfast and dinner)
+ Nicely decorated rooms

+/- TV was a bit small
+/- Pool and sauna decent, but not a place to relax. Also, the sauna is located inside each wardrobe, not ideal for couples

- When they advertise with "refurbished" rooms they really should say: **does not include the bathroom (which is from the nineties or something)

Stayed: November 2013, travelled as a couple

Hi Oslolosen.

We are very pleased that you liked the bed, the food and the decoration of the rooms. Sleeping quality and food is something we have been focusing on improving since we believe this is something that is very important to our many guests. And this was also our priority this summer. Next round will most certain include the bathrooms.

Thank you for your constructive feedback – if you have other comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.

This is a conference hotel located in the hils a good 20 minute drive from the city. The nature surronding the hotel is amazing providing the possibility for nice walk in beautifull nature. Some rooms are new and realy nice while the majority of the rooms are very outdated. The hotel is planning to refurbish all rooms during the summer 2013. The food at the hotel is fantastic and the service excellent!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the new rooms

Located in the hills above Oslo this is definitely not the place for someone who fancies a stroll around the waterfront after dinner. However for a conference location it is wonderful. The staff are very helpful and the smorgasbord at lunch has to be seen to be believed, As for the cost - well this is Norway.

Very pleased with the hotel but some rooms are better than others, but all the guestrooms will be renovated this summer so I heard and I hope the rooms will become more modern and comfortable. All in all a good hotel off the beaten path with excellent service.
