COMFORT HOTEL KARL JOHAN IN OSLO IS ON THE SEARCH FOR A NEW BRILLIANT GENERAL MANAGER
We’re Comfort Hotel® – a hotel chain that promises to give our guests what they need, and skip the unnecessary. We have great locations, urban design and we’re offering selected services, but the service we give is great. We aim to be easy & likable. As in easy on the wallet, easy to enjoy, with easy access and last but definitely not least – easy on the planet.
With the current GM moving on to exciting new (temporarily) opportunities within the company, this opens up new possibilities. To further strengthen our position we need you!
Comfort Hotel Karl Johan is something special. A budget hotel with a prime location at Karl Johan Street in Oslo (hence Norway) within walking distance to just about everything. We’re pretty confident this is a pretty unique combination, and we are extremely proud of our little gem.
Comfort Hotel Karl Johan has 260 rooms, a barception & deli which is open 24/7 - and within the hotel we have Rodin's restaurant which serve our guests breakfast and - and healthy, sustainable eats with great pride and big smiles.
Oslo with all she has to offer, is at your doorstep. We do not claim to be your destination. We do aim for your stay at your destination to be better when staying with us though. This is something we would love to discuss with you.
So, are you the GM of our dreams?
We think you are currently in a hotel/department manager role, aiming for that General Manager role. This is a temporary role which requires you to be available from mid-January until August 31st. A great opportunity to test the waters before jumping in feet first.
We do understand that if minibars, conference rooms and a la carte restaurants are your thing, we are not for you. Which is fine! We’re not for everyone.
Budget hotels and the value segment, however, should interest you - a lot. You are definitely passionate about both people, planet and profit. We take diversity seriously, and know that people with different experiences, backgrounds and skills will add value to us.
You experience success when your teams flourish. Sustainability, diversity and inclusion go hand in hand with market share, profitability and growth. You are relaxed and informal with excellent financial understanding. You are pragmatic, flexible and solution-oriented. You should also enjoy developing people and have the ability to invest in new talent.
We also think you have a bunch of news apps on your phone, making sure nothing passes you by. You know how to make a collaborative playlist on Spotify, and you know that Stan Smith comes in many colors. You know the difference between etos, patos & logos.
You know Oslo by heart and love your community. You’re spreading joy & warmth around you, and your laughter is contagious. So is your energy.
As General Manager for Comfort Hotel Karl Johan, you are responsible for everything at the hotel. From reaching the occupancy target, the financial results and to build the brand. You are the leader on site. You are acting as CEO.
Does this feel like a perfect match?

If you have any questions or want to discuss why budget hotels don't need to be boring. Feel free to contact me. I’m looking forward to it!
