“Perfect for meetings/conferences”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

My department director decided that we needed to to have a seminar where we discussed the future situation and that everyone should participate. We choosed Lysebu partly because they have a good reputation and the price pr person was acceptable. 50 persons stayed for two days, discussed, made decisions, had very good food and nice rooms. The staff were very helpful and friendly and people with allergies had special food made for them. The meeting facilities were perfect for a seminar of this size

This hotel is in a golf and country setting not close to the city. The food and service was superb with absolutely no negatives. If you are a first time visitor bring a swether even in summer and enjoy the outdoor area and views. Would be nice to have coffee maker in the room to get over the jet lag

my experience in this hotel was the best they gave me a really good room. with a good view of the forest and mountains ( w/ a little bit of car park but still nice =)

swimming pool was a bit cold but nice.

fantastic views going up this mountain hotel. there is also a cute house in front of reception =)

I need to commend 1 of their staff her name was Kristine I think although she made a slight mistake about my booking but she completely redeemed herself and was very very accomodating and very nice. One of the kindest staff in the hotels I've been in in Norway.

The only problem I had was the Wifi since it got disconnected always on my 2nd day ( I stayed 3 nights). But the other days the Wifi is ok.

This is the best hotel in Oslo I've been in so far I've been to Norway a couple of times and this is definitely the best in my opinion. The rate is the same as in the city although it's a bit far but the metro train is nearby (Voksenkollen) and only takes about 40 mins to Oslo Central.

Highly recommendable!

lovely hotel high up in woodland, beautifully comfortable with easy and very interesting train ride down the hill into the centre of the city. marvellous swimming pool and excellent staff. My husband wanted a sandwich, after we got back very late from the city. It took half an hour to make but was the best sandwich he has ever had.

I was there for a conference which was well-catered for in every sense. The attention to detail in the restaurant is remarkable — the dishes were superb, mostly organic and seasonal with great pride in the provenance of each ingredient (rather touchingly described in full terroir detail by the waiter). My room was small but very comfortable with a box-bed and a teddy bear as a reminder that the house was used to house displaced children after the war. The pool and sauna are well-appointed with subtle lighting and the same calm atmosphere that pervades the whole site. It would be expensive for a family trip, and just a little too far out for the tourist who wants to see Oslo itself. But it is a wonderful place for a special trip — an anniversary or a birthday to remember.

i have stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. it is almost 20 minutes from Oslo city center but very good location if you have your own car. there are two buildings one old classic & the second one is modern design. The view is amazing and the room are very clean. free WiFi covers the entire hotel.

Lysebu is almost as far as you can come from the city of Oslo urban wise. The hotel is hidden up in the Holmenkollen hills. The woodland, Nordmarka, is the closest neighbour.

We had a room in the new wing. The rooms here are very Scandinavian, with Danish minimalistic furniture.

We had a six-course dinner. The courses were very good. Well prepared and tasty. The service was first class and the wine suggestions perfect for the courses.

The staffs were very friendly and professional.

There area is perfect for a good walk. We went for a long walk in the woodland, and visited one of the cabins serving a good meal for hikers. And although you are not able to see the city, you will be downtown in 30 minutes using the tram – the station is only a few minutes away.
