Hotel Overview

Sense of place

In the very heart of Oslo, a quick walk from the much loved National Theatre and just a short journey from a range of shops in Aker Brugge.

Rooms at Hotel Continental

A seamless blend of modern comfort and traditional luxury, each room has interiors with individually selected artwork and design features, giving every guest a unique experience. Many rooms boast stunning views of either the city or the natural scenery beyond, such as the Continental Suite, which has sweeping panoramas over the Oslofjord.

Food and drink

With five different dining options, this hotel offers something for every mood. The relaxed Steamen café is great for a drink and a light bite, while the historic Theatercafeen serves up exquisitely prepared seafood and meat dishes. Eik Annen Etage offers gourmet cuisine in a three, four or five-course menu, with delacies on offer including Kalix Lojrom caviar and oysters.


The hotel features a fully equipped gym, which is open 24 hours a day – so you can fit in your fitness routine around your holiday. There is also a lobby lounge, decorated with lithographs by the great Norwegian artist Edvard Munch, which is a great place to relax with a drink.

Activities at Hotel Continental

A stone’s throw from the hotel is the National Theatre, Norway’s largest theatre, which is acclaimed for its marvellous ballet and opera. Jet off one of the city’s boat cruises or visit one of the many museums nearby to uncover some of Oslo’s historical background, such as the Norsk Folkemuseum or the Astrup Fearnley Museet. Also worth checking out is the stunning Oslo Opera House, a glass and steel masterpiece reminiscent of an iceberg.
