Hotel Intel: Amerikalinjen is a haute-hip getaway in Oslo
A visit to the Amerikalinjen is an encounter with both the glorious past and dynamic present of Oslo, Norway.
The hotel has reimagined a 1919 heritage landmark, originally the headquarters of the Norwegian American Line, a shipping company that travelled between Norway and New York, back in the day.
Today, this architectural treasure has been transformed into a haute-hip boutique hotel with sizzling scenes at Atlas Brasserie & Café and the innovative bar Pier 42, as well as Gustav, an insiders’ jazz club.
Amerikalinjen is in the heart of Oslo, across the street from Oslo Central Station and therefore has easy access from Oslo Gardermoen Airport on the smooth Flytoget train.
Lounging in the lobby facing Jernbanetorget Square, I felt instantly in sync with the city, watching the strollers, trams and scooters criss-crossing the open space.
