Hotel Royal Christiania, formerly the Hotel Viking, is a hotel in Oslo, Norway. The hotel was financed and built by Oslo Municipality to accommodate the 1952 Winter Olympics. At the time of its formal opening on December 10, 1951, it was the largest hotel in Scandinavia. The first guest was J. K. Christensen Haugesund. It was here that Arne Treholt and Gennady Titov were observed dining together on February 24, 1972. Today, the hotel has 451 rooms (508 according to another source which claims it to be the second largest hotel in Norway)[1] and is owned by the Clarion hotel chain.[2]
