Hotel Continental overlooks Palace Park and is located across the street from the National Theatre (1 Johanne Dybwads Plass; 47-22-00-14-00; Meticulously maintained Victorian decor with brocade walls and oil paintings outfits the public spaces; the 155 guest rooms are furnished with antiques (nearly half of them were revamped in 2006 and 2007). Sporty types can work up a sweat in the small fifth-floor fitness room, and art aficionados will appreciate the hotel's extensive collection of prints by Edvard Munch, which are on display in the relaxed lobby bar, Dagligstuen. The restaurant, Theatrecaféen, is a popular gathering spot for the local intelligentsia.
