Leave your cleaning in the cupboard – celebrate New Year’s Eve at a hotel in Oslo instead

What do you want for Christmas? Here is a suggestion for one thing you may have forgotten to put on your list: a well-deserved break after all the Christmas cooking, Christmas cleaning and Christmas decorations! Avoid all that responsibility and check into the hotel in the capital instead!

Happy New Year!

New Year's Eve - the year's most awesome party! The end of the old year, and the start of the new one. The air is full of expectation, that the year to come will be the best one so far. Do not start the first day of the New Year by waking up to empty bottles and leftovers. Wake up in a delicious, soft hotel bed instead. Which hotel would you choose?

Give yourself a romantic view of the fireworks from THE THIEF

If there is an evening that really deserves golden trimmings, this is it. Bring your loved one to THE THIEF to celebrate what has been and what is to come. Why not check in while it is still light out and start your celebration in the spa? Afterwards you can go up to your room and put on your Sunday best. In the THIEF FOODBAR restaurant a five-course New Year’s menu awaits you.

With the hotel's romantic location on Tjuvholmen, right by the water, you only have to put on some warm clothes and step outside when the clock approaches midnight. Fireworks are launched from Tjuvholmen and from a raft below the City Hall, so take a romantic walk along Aker Brygge and see the sky lit up by colours, hope and expectations for 2019.

Bring your family along with you to Comfort Hotel® Grand Central

Check in at a hotel and let yourself forget about your household responsibilities. The adults deserve a break from cooking and dishwashing, and should have time to de-stress and be with the family. Take the train, tram or bus to Østbanehallen at Oslo S, and check in at Comfort Hotel® Grand Central. The hotel has a modern New York style design. Cool for kids and relaxing for parents.

When you stay here, everything is within easy reach. Go out in the evening and find a restaurant that serves the food you want. If you are near the hotel when it is almost new year, you can race to the opera roof. There you can see the fireworks mirrored in the water right in front of you.
