Located on the self-proclaimed ‘Nordic Broadway’, according to commercial manager Erik Trøstaker, the immediate surroundings of the hotel are filled with restaurants, bars, hotels and one of the three national theatres in the northern European country. The design of its vibrant and colourful rooms and interior, crafted with meticulous care, has been launched as a contrast to the clinical white rooms that many hotels offer – and has been received as a welcome addition to the coastal city. “Øvre Ole Bulls Plass, where we are located, is named after Ole Bull. The reason we’re called Hotel Oleana is because Oleana was the plot of land he bought in America, where he wanted to build a colony for Norwegians, called New Bergen/ Norway,” explains Trøstaker.
