Oslo is not a big city. If you stay around the pedestrian Karl Johan Gate, you can walk to major attractions with ease.
However, staying at a central location can be expensive. After all, the Norwegian capital is not a cheap city.
For those who don’t want to spend all their holiday money on accommodation, but look for more than what the basic hostel and b&b can offer, we’ve put together a list of centrally located budget hotels for a comfortable stay in Oslo.
Scandic Byporten is one of the best value for money 3-star hotels in Oslo. You can’t beat the location – the hotel is connected to a shopping centre and the central station. Rooms have Scandinavian-style décors with wooden floors, and free wi-fi.
Comfort Hotel Xpress Central Station
Comfort Hotel Borsparken
Borsparken Hotel is a great value for money option in central Oslo. Rooms may be a bit small but are functional, and the beds are comfortable according to guests’ reviews. A very good continental breakfast is included in the room rate.
Anker Hotel is a 15-minute walk from Karl Johans Gate, Oslo’s main shopping street. Rooms are clean, bright and comfortable. A good breakfast is included in the rate, which is a plus in a city where eating is expensive
