  • It is an amazing place to spend a day to roam around an island. The fortress is on an island, well connected by boats from Sundbrygga. There is a museum inside the Oscarborg fortress which hosts several antiques from the 1940 war between Germany and Norway. There is a canteen on this island where one can enjoy meal by the water.
  • Nice but rooms basic as was once an old military school. Have to pay for ferry to get there.
  • Nice place to stay. Mostly in summer. The food is really great.
  • Lovely fortress and museum, and the ferry captain was very kind!!
  • Nice and scenic.

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.
