“We are thrilled to be the first international lifestyle hospitality brand in Oslo,” commented  Sharan Pasricha, Founder & Co-CEO of Ennismore. “The Hoxton takes pride in being located in vibrant, up-and-coming neighbourhoods, and we are honoured to partner with AB Invest and Møller Eiendom to welcome locals and guests to Oslo’s revitalised government district”.

“In recent years, we’ve witnessed a shift among Norwegians, as they bring home the hotel habits acquired during their travels abroad,” added Anders Buchardt from AB Invest. “They are looking for great food, a unique atmosphere, and a memorable experience. As the Norwegian hotel market evolves, we eagerly embraced the opportunity to introduce Hoxton to Norway. We firmly believe that this trend will further enhance Oslo’s appeal as a premier hotel destination, catering both international guests and locals”.

Like a good neighbour with an open house, guests will be greeted with a homely, open-planned lobby space upon entering the hotel, perfect for lounging with friends, working through the day, or grabbing a bite to eat. Always inspired by the diversity and originality of the streets and scenes that surround its hotels, The Hoxton, Oslo, will feature 144 rooms; The Apartment, a 170sqm meetings and events space set around an open pantry kitchen; and three unique food &
beverage outlets including an all-day dining destination, a restaurant and a cocktail bar, all expertly curated by Ennismore’s F&B concept studio, Carte Blanched.

Situated by Oslo’s government quarter, The Hoxton is at the heart of a new project to revitalise the city centre. A key intersection between the east and west of the city, expansion to The Government Park will connect the city, turning the area into a solid, green, and car-free neighbourhood — a space where visitors and residents alike can embrace nature. Across the street, Møller Eiendom is revitalising the historic public library building into Deich, House of Photography, a cultural hub with museum, restaurants, and bars – due to open in 2027.

The Hoxton will be a block from Oslo´s main street, Karl Johans gate, and a five-minute walk to Oslo´s bustling restaurant and nightlife area. Further afield, guests can head towards the fjord, where they can cool off in the water or enjoy the beautiful architecture along the harbour promenade, including the iconic MUNCH museum, the Oslo Opera House and the acclaimed new National Museum. Walk the 10-kilometre stretch of the Oslo harbour uninterrupted, taking
in world-class architecture, culture, and food along this way.

The Hoxton, Oslo—managed by Ennismore—is a joint venture between AB Invest, a privately owned property company that develops commercial properties in the Nordics, with a focus on hotels, offices, and holiday properties, and Møller Eiendom, an owner, manager, and property developer who emphasises forward-looking buildings and good urban spaces.
