The Lillestrom Bicycle Hotel is a resource that makes it easier for commuters to make use of a bicycle for first and last mile trips while still travelling on the rest of their public transport system. Attached to the Lillestrom Train Station, the Lillestrom Bicycle Hotel is a massive repository where commuters can store their bicycles before hopping on the train to make the trip into Oslo.

Using the term "hotel" is more of a cute turn of phrase, as the Lillestrom Bicycle Hotel is far closer to a parking garage than a building with room and board. Nonetheless, the facility was constructed with design in mind. 'Various Architects,' the Oslo firm behind it, gave the bicycle hotel a smooth ramp that leads to a patch of public greenery on top of the building.
