Oslo, Norway
Amerikalinjen
  • Centrally located by the railway station, the Amerikalinjen is well placed to explore the city and perfect if continuing your journey by train

  • Formerly the headquaters of the Norwegian American Line, the building dates back to 1919 and still has its original façade

  • The in-house cocktail bar, Pier 42, is popular with both guests and locals and serves cocktails from the original ships with a contemporary twist

  • The basement hosts a jazz club offering live music and dancing


Built in 1919 the building was once the headquarters of the Norwegian American Line, who provided the opportunity for Norwegians to travel to America by boat, linking Norway to the ' New Western world'. Following an extensive restoration, the building has maintained original features such as the historic staircases, tiles and the wooden elevator casing. 

The spacious hotel rooms are designed in a contemporary style with high ceilings and subtle touches of memorabilia documenting the history of the Norwegian American Line, such as mapped-out routes and departure lists, so that guests can get a feel for what the building was once used for. Each room has a bright and airy en-suite bathroom with rain showers and some with a separate bath.

There are plenty of areas to relax at Amerikalinjen with a coffee and a book, in particular the library which is set up to replicate the common areas on board a ship, with plenty of information to read in to the fascinating history.

The hotel offers a number of different dining options; the main restaurant Atlas Brasserie, Haven, an all-seasons green garden in the centre of the hotel, Pier 42, the cocktail bar and finally the jazz club, Gustav, which is open every Friday night and is popular with both guests and locals, hosting live music and dancing.
