The Scandic City Hotel in Fredrikstad is under renovation and had limited availability. There are no longer rooms for Thursday – Sunday here. However, we do suggest the Scandic Sarpsborg.
It is a 35-minute commute from the Scandic Sarpsborg to the Fredrikstad Kino. The route 1 bus is a five-minute walk from the Scandic Sarpsborg and a five-minute walk to the Fredrikstad Kino. The bus runs every 15 minutes (starts every 30 minutes at 18:00). The last bus is at 00:00.
You can also take the R20 train one stop between Fredrikstad and Sarpsborg. The last train to Sarpsborg is at 1:19. The train is also a 35-minute commute, with a little more walking than the bus option.
There are still double rooms, junior suites, and family rooms available at Hotel Fredrikstad. It is located a very short walk from the Fredrikstad Kino and other locations.
Last Chance! Here are some other room availabilities as of Monday, 26. September.
Wex Hotel – One three-bedroom apartment Thursday – Saturday
Widdingstua – 6-person, 2 bedroom house available Thursday – Sunday.
Gamlebyen Hotell – Has three rooms available Thursday – Sunday.
Airbnb – There are 7 houses or apartments available in the Fredrikstad Sentrum.
Pro Tip: The last train from Fredrikstad to Oslo is at 22:44, so it is possible to attend the seminars and screening at the festival and take the train back to Oslo on Friday or Saturday night.
