Oyster Hotel Review
Not very close to most of the sights, but the hotel's proximity to Central Station makes it very convenient to get around.
Clarion Collection Hotel Folketeateret is located at the eastern end of central Oslo, just three blocks, or about a four-minute walk, from Central Station. It's centrally located for seeing most of the sights (and it's easy to get anywhere from Central Station, as all public transportation passes through here), but the immediate neighborhood is not at all quaint or charming.
Oslo is Norway's largest city, and is centered around the thoroughfare of Karl Johans Gate, which leads from the Royal Palace to Oslo Central Station. Visitors can expect to find shops, cafes, and bakeries along this route, and in the summer can watch mounted police officers and a military marching band lead the royal guards to the palace for the daily changing of the guard ceremony, which takes place daily at 1:30 p.m.
The waterfront Aker Byrgge area is also a popular area. In nice weather locals and tourists alike can be found strolling up and down the Stranden, lining up at the ice cream and hot dog stands, sitting on the benches to watch the boats, and dining at the outdoor restaurant tables along the street. The restaurants here, as in all of Norway, are astonishingly expensive -- though visitors trying to keep costs low will be able to find more affordable ethnic eateries (Indian, Thai, and Chinese) elsewhere in the city.
Most visitors should expect to walk quite a bit to get around, and to rely on the tram and bus system. Taxis, like everything else, are very expensive, and most tourists use them sparingly.
