Recent guest reviews

This charming boutique hotel converted from a theatre has a great location - a short walk from the pier and asker bryggn. It is also just a stone's throw away from the main shopping district that appealed greatly to the ladies. The front desk staff were very friendly and exceedingly helpful. The rooms are good sized and the bed is very comfortable. The breakfast buffet has a good selection of choices. If I were to complain, it would be the bells from the nearby town hall. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

We really enjoyed our stay. Room was very comfortable although difficult for us to sleep and due to the long daylight hours. Staff super friendly and helpful. Food was awesome! We enjoyed Pizza for dinner and the breakfast was fabulous.

We were satisfied in every way with our accommodations at Christiania Teater. The room was comfortable, clean, and well-equipped. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was exceptionally good; an expansive buffet of cereals, yogurts, breads, pastries, meats, eggs, even salads. The location is convenient to the railroad station (1/2 mile), the ferry to Bygdoy (Folk Museum and Viking Ship Museum), parks, and the cobblestone pedestrian way Karl Johans Gate.

We had a great time at this hotel and really enjoyed our time in Oslo. This hotel is located in the center of the city and is close to the cities main attractions. It was clean, the breakfast was delicious and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place to stay while in Oslo.

My adult son and I stayed in this hotel in the center of Oslo. The concierge/manager was exceedingly helpful and knowledgeable about the local area and beyond. We enjoyed the room , the fabulous breakfast spread and a delicious wood fired pizza for dinner. Easy in and out. Rented bikes to tour the city and museums. It's possible to get a 1-2 day pass for public transport from the shop across the street which is very helpful.

Excellent small hotel with a wonderful breakfast and also excellent pizza and wine selections at dinner. The room was large and clean, very modern and contemporary. Excellent comfortable King Bed. The Wi-Fi works perfectly in the hotel. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. It is a great place to stay in Oslo.

Stayed here for three nights to see oslo. I chose it because of the city centre location and the fact that it has a cool design to it. Staff was friendly and checking in was easy. The room was a good size and clean. The bed was large but the mattress wasn't even. It leaned to one side which was annoying but not a huge deal. The Wi-Fi was strong and reliable. The food at the restaurant was subpar. I expected much better. The eggs were cold and the cheese was sweaty and clammy. The only real drawback of the hotel is the bells ringing from the city hall building at its back. The bells ring every fifteen minutes!! Then an extra long chime on the hour. This happens from 7am till midnight and it's incredibly annoying when you're trying to go to sleep. I dont know if the hotel has rooms where you can't hear the bells, but that's the only way I would stay here again.

This hotel has a great location just a short walk from the pier and across the street from parks, restaurants and shops. I would have given this five stars if the ceiling was a bit more soundproof. We heard our "neighbors " who sounded like elephants walking all night till passed midnight and then up at 6:30am. Rather annoying. On the positive side, the beds are comfortable, the bathroom very functional and the blackout curtains a huge bonus because the sun came up at 4:30am. I do think they should add a soap dish in the bathroom (see picture) because the counter can get pretty slimy. The staff is very nice and helpful!

Hotel Christiania Teater is a great hotel for many reasons : - first of all, it's awesome location, at Nationaltheatret, makes it a very good starting point for a city explore or a business visit in town - then, the venue itself is awesome : the perfect definition of a Western boutique hotel. Charming, quaint, luxurious, original, unique. Built in an ancient theater, you can still feel the artistic spirit all over the place, and the architecture of the place (inside) is particular. The suites are beautifully designed, tastefully furnished and offer you all the comfort you might need. Perfect rooms for a lovers' getaway. - also, discreet & efficient service, professional and friendly Not the cheapest option in town, indeed. But you really get what you pay for. Very beautiful hotel, so it's worth it !

Stayed for 3 nights. Location excellent and quiet. Breakfast sendid and plentiful with homemade breads, jams and the most delicious strawberries! Near the underground and trams ,though Oslo is a very walkable city. its a 7 - 10 mins walk to the airport express train terminal so your into the airport in under an hour for minimal cost. Staff very welcoming and the bed sumptuous. Bathroom some what clunky and wet room in design. if you need a good hairdryer bring one. Low key and loved it overall :-)
