“Staying outside of Oslo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

It took a long time to find a hotel given the parameters of our business. We needed to be awy from the crowds and yet close enough to the city. This was second time to Oslo and the problem was parking, and needing to see clients south of Oslo and to the west. So city no go.

The drive to the hotel is extremely pleasant as one climbs the area where the Olympics were held with the ski jump. The view from up there is extraordinary on the fjord around Oslo.
There are two parts to the hotel: an old one and a new one. The new part has rooms with views that are extraordinary all pointing north.
Dinner was extreme both in prices and in service with the usual exaggeration of a maitre d'hotel and modern cuisine.Breakfast was ornamented in the same but included in the price of the room.
Staff pleasant trying to do its best.

Room Tip: Ask to be placed in the new wing with a view on the lakes.

I attended a workshop at this hotel and stayed there for 2 days (1night). The experience is overwhelming. This is a unique place with its own charm. This time I stayed in the new wing where the rooms are equipped with every possible amenity you need. The food is superb, both breakfast, lunch and dinner. My compliments to the chef! The staff is friendly and helpful. What I liked most about Lysebu was its design. Being a traditional mountain farm, it now has paintings borrowed from the Henie Onstad Center of Contemporary Art at display in the new wing.

Has been at Lysebu several times before - always happy with rooms, food and facilities. This time tops it all! Beautiful rooms in the new building - large and comfortable with stylish design, floor-to-wall windows with its own terrace and the forest right outside. Meeting facilities are the best, and the food in a class of its own. Lunch consists of high-quality food, shellfish / seafood, delicious hot dishes and fabulous desserts and cheeses. The dinner was a 4-course with very good quality ingredients, wine menu that really fit well. Must also mention breakfast, organic products, Norwegian producers of top-class - it oozes quality of everything. Art, furniture etc are a delight to the eye - and not the A4-style hotel. Can really recommend Lysebu, and will definitely return.

Stayed for a two day conference. Got a small charming room in the main building. No TV. Single bed including a toy teddy bear. The food was excellent. The breakfast had all you needed incl fresh fruit sallad.

A comfortable wooden build Hotel in the upper mountains in Oslo. Unfortunatly not located in the city center. Still a good hotel during the sking season. Not far away there is Oslos winter park. A good choice, service is great, nice view over Oslo and a lot of nature around. Good food and cozy made, with cool rooms. Quite expensive thou.
