Where to Stay in Oslo – Affordable Hotels in the Best Areas

Oslo is not a big city. If you stay around the pedestrian Karl Johan Gate, you can walk to major attractions with ease. But 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 budget on accommodation, but want 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.
