A striking five-star hotel with sleek Scandinavian design, an acclaimed restaurant and chic suites

With its sleek Scandinavian design and striking, modern aesthetic, the five-star First Hotel Grims Grenka certainly makes its presence felt in Oslo. Voted coolest Norwegian design hotel by online newspaper Nettavisen, the hotel is, not surprisingly, a favorite for photo shoots and launches. Here, you can stretch out on the designer furniture, admire the modern artwork and maybe even get some design ideas to take home with you.

There’s much more to this hotel than just its good looks, though. The acclaimed MADU restaurant, with its cutting-edge Scandinavian cuisine, attracts plenty of attention, and the lobby bar offers exquisite craft cocktails and an appealing array of Scandinavian microbrews. You can enjoy the view from the rooftop bar during the warmer months, or, when it gets colder, head to the cozy Brooms & Hatchets bar for a drink that’ll warm you right up. To top it all off, the hotel’s central location puts you within walking distance of many of Oslo's most popular sights.

Good to know

Please be aware that the rooftop bar is closed during the winter.

We like

Boasting an ideal city-center location, First Hotel Grims Grenka is less than a mile from Oslo Central Station, a 15-minute walk from the renowned shopping, dining and entertainment district of Aker Brygge and only a few blocks from the harbor. The 13th-century Akershus Castle, the waterfront Astrup Fearnley Museum and the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet are all within walking distance, as well.
