Hotel Continental has been a beacon of luxury since its opening in 1900. Ideally located for business travelers, the property is just 25 minutes from the international airport, and has nine meeting rooms on two floors for conferences and events. Each bedroom is individually designed in a classic or contemporary style, and guests can choose from a tranquil courtyard view, or rooms looking out to the Oslo fjord. The legendary Vienna-style restaurant, Theatercaféen, is on the New York Times list of ten most famous cafés, and features portraits by Henrik Lund and Pedro and Ulf Aas. The hotel is closely connected to the art world and the largest privately owned collection of Edvard Munch paintings hang in the lobby bar, Dagligstuen.
