Scandic Holmenkollen Park

Standing proudly with a history spanning 128 years, Scandic Holmenkollen Park has unveiled its new attire after a detailed 15-month renovation. Designed by architects Metropolis and Mellbye, the hotel elegantly merges the historic charm of its dragon-style Dragbyggnaden building with modern luxuries. We love how the stunning exterior and exquisite woodcraft in the interior are seamlessly matched with contemporary aesthetics. Offering 376 rooms across 10 buildings, including 27 bespoke rooms and suites, it invites guests to indulge in Norwegian cuisine at its finest in the Holmenkollen Park Bistro & Bar, where a unique waffle concept redefines traditional tastes with inventive toppings. Its well-stocked wine cellar and expansive gym and spa facilities, alongside meeting and conference spaces capable of welcoming up to 1,200 guests. The hotel’s focus on sustainability, evident in its Nordic Swan Ecolabel certification, showcases eco-friendly operations from renewable electricity to a climate-friendly menu.

Lyseby Holmenkollen Norway hotel review

Lysebu

Lysebu, set atop Holmenkollen, offers an escape that blends historical charm with the serenity of the Norwegian wilderness. Established in 1916, this traditional Norwegian-styled property opens the door to Nordmarka’s outdoor haven, all within a 30-minute reach from Oslo’s lively heart. Among its 85 guest rooms, the hotel presents a world where luxury meets nature. Its culinary prowess shines in a restaurant that delights guests with a weekly fresh five-course menu, rooted in seasonal bounty and complemented by exquisite wines, set against a backdrop of stunning views and Nordic art. For us, the highlight is Lysebu’s impressive spa facilities, designed to provide a sanctuary of relaxation and rejuvenation, harmonising with its commitment to sustainability as an eco-certified retreat.

Soria Moria Holmenkollen Norway hotel review

Soria Moria

Soria Moria’s most unique and raved-about feature is undoubtedly its stunning location atop Holmenkollen, offering breathtaking views over Oslo, the fjord and the surrounding forest. This scenic advantage combines the tranquillity of nature with the convenience of proximity to central Oslo, making it a sought-after escape that feels both secluded and accessible. The hotel’s renovation in 2013 introduced modern and comfortable interiors, including rooms equipped with Jensen beds and Egyptian cotton linen, enhancing the guest experience. Additionally, the wellness facility with its pool, private saunas and particularly the sauna (a must-visit) with possibly the most striking view in Oslo, stands out to us.
