Ideally located in the woods and close to Oslo city. Cosy hotel with nicely decorated rooms; only the bathroom was somewhat tiny. Friendly personnel. Wonderful, large swimming pool, also sauna and fitness room.

We arrived Friday, looking forward to a nice weekend. As we got married three weeks earlier, we wanted to use the gift card we received from good friends at Lysebu for our honeymoon. When we arrived, we were notified that there was going to be a wedding on Saturday. They did not warn us about this when we booked over...

Had 3 days here. Just incredible place. The location is amazing and the hotel itself is very good. It was snowing while I was there which made it magical, like being in Narnia. However, the room I had was super tiny, I could touch both walls without stretching my arms completely, no TV in the room, no kettle for tea...

We will come back. Third year in a row and everything was even better than last times. Wine,food, the room, and the pool was also perfect. Look for the home made raspberry jam with liquorish at the breakfast. Heaven

We have stayed for two nights in this hotel and really enjoyed it. The hotel is located in the Holmenkollen area with nice green surroundings. In walking distance there is a metro station that will take you straight to the city centre. The breakfast is okay but not really special. The pool is nice, we had it to ourselves. We...

Lysebu is an ideal place to arrange a conference. An extra bonus is the possibility of using the swimming pool after an intense working day! The environment is beautiful, and the historical information about the help Denmark gave Norway during WWII interesting. The food is luxurious.

My wife and I had booked four nights at this hotel some 12 months prior to our arrival. Fully anticipating a wonderful stay, we arrived at the hotel at 4.00pm, in the dark, in the middle of a Norwegian forest with a temperature of -2, to find a polite notice pinned to the main reception door that the the hotel...

We stayed at Lysebu over the weekend of our first wedding anniversary. Lysebu is a cute and pretty hotel, in lovely surroundings, but the hotel sadly lets itself down due to a lack of attention to detail such that I probably wouldn't stay there again: 1. Poor heating facilities in what is a very cold country in winter!!! 2. No...

I'm sorry for our late replay on your review of Lysebu, and I'm sorry we didn't live up to yours (and ours) expectations. There are no excuses and we are truly sorry. We should have been more aware about the temperature inside, but the missing water (day 2) was not our foul. It's always good to get reviews or our...

Cozy environment with comfortable and clean rooms. Homely interior with great service. Spacious rooms. The place is close to a few good day walks.
