Øvingshotellet is a hotel, not for sleeping but for rehearsing.
Øvingshotellet has a total of 49 rehearsal spaces, located in Schous Kulturbryggeri, a former brewery in the centre of Oslo. Today Schous Kulturbryggeri is a whole block dedicated to music and culture.
At Øvingshotellet you book rooms on an hourly basis. You pay for the actual time you spend and not a fixed rent.
