As you’ve seen in my previous vlog, I’m back in Oslo to celebrate my birthday! In this blog/vlog, I’ll show you the place I’m staying in and that’s Park Inn Oslo! I’ve stayed here several times since its opening in 2010, but now, all rooms and the lobby have a new interior. Watch my video below or read more under it.
The hotel is centrally located at Øvre Slottsgate, which is a side street of Karl Johans Gate, Oslo’s Main Street. Check it out on the map:
So this is the lobby where you can just hang out or work. There’s a bar, so you can enjoy some drinks while chatting with your co-travellers or while you’re getting some work done on your computer.
And here is my room. It’s a standard, decent sized twin room. There’s a desk with enough plugs and a phone. WiFi was easy to connect to and was fast. There’s an extra seat and a table where some complimentary drinks and a personal birthday card were waiting for me. Thanks again Park Inn for making me feel extra welcome!
Above the beds, you’ll notice the mood light. You can adjust the colour or have them change all the time. There are two usb charging ports next to one bed and one normal plug next to both.
There’s a flatscreen TV in front of the beds. Under it, you can find an ironing board and coffee and tea making facilities.
The bathroom is white and has floor heating (that feels nice in the morning!). The bathroom was very clean. There are no individually packed amenities, but the Dove body and hand wash dispensers are way more ecological.
The breakfast area is located on the ground floor, next to the hotel’s entrance. Definitely check out my video for more detailed photos of the breakfast!
There’s a broad selection of food. Of course you have bread, toasts and croissants, bread, knekkebrød, different kinds of jam and butter. There are different kinds of cold cuts, such as cheese, Norwegian brunost, ham and salami. There are cereals and porridge with toppings. You can even prepare your own Norwegian heart waffle!
You can drink some coffee, flavoured water or fresh juice.
Those who like a hot breakfast will enjoy themselves here too: there are sausages, eggs, and a special cooked egg in a bacon wrapper.
And for dessert, you can take a smoothie, take some yoghurt or grab a fruit.
Like with any other hotel, the price depends on when you book and when you’re staying. Prices are usually between 900 and 1200 NOK, but that really depends on the season. Check out their website here: https://www.parkinn.com/hotel-oslo
Here are some tips to get the best deal:
- Book at Park Inn’s or Club Carlson’s website. You’ll get the best deals over there and you’re sure about the booking conditions.
- Book as early as possible. When you book your flight, also book your hotel.
- Keep an eye out for promotions. Check both www.parkinn.com and www.clubcarlson.com
- Join Club Carlson: it’s free! You collect points and win extra points during promotional periods or when you book through the app. Once you have at least 5000 points, you can trade points for a discount on your booking. If you save more, you can even have a free night. Club Carlson also often launches promotions, so definitely follow them on social media and www.clubcarlson.com
So, this was my review of my stay at Park Inn in Oslo. I really enjoyed my stay here again and I hope you’ll enjoy yours too when you come to Oslo.
Stay tuned for my next vlog!
