Hotel Continental, Oslo

Oslo, nestling between a fjord and a forest, is one of Scandinavia’s prime destinations. At the heart of its fine buildings and parks lies another great destination.

It may be called the Continental, but this five star hotel is truly world class. It has its own art collection, for example, that attracts visitors from across the world. You’ll find painting by Edvard Munch, sculpture in the lobby, glasswork in the suites.

You’ll also find a wonderful collection of restaurants and bars. A Viennese-style café that is one of Oslo’s most renowned restaurants. The fine dining Eik Annen Etage. A classic lobby bar-cum-Oslo meeting place. The maritime- styled Steamen and a stylish breakfasting room.

And then there are the rooms themselves. Each with its own unique character, each welcoming you with a fusion of classic design, unconventional fashion colours and the latest modern luxuries. The Continental concentrates the best of Europe into one of Europe’s best hotels.
