Vikings and the Rolling Stones

A travel blog entry by beadledove


Well, who would have known that the weekend we arrive in Oslo, the Rolling Stones are scheduled to start their European tour? Not knowing this we decided to show up unannounced and unreserved to find a place a few days earlier than we planned.

You see, it works like this, we plan to fly out of Oslo on the 28th, so we have a room booked in …

On the way to Oslo stopped at a Nowegian Stave Church and then passed a couple of Fjords.

In the night had a tour of Oslo viewed the city of Oslo and the new ski jump from Mt Holmenkollem.

Had a delicious meal (3 course, salmon of course) from a restaurant beside the waterfront and Nobel Museum.

Oh baby, baby, baby, ooohhhhh

Yes - creepy title. Again - will explain later. I'm on a train right now on my way to what I'm expecting will look llike that scene in The Sound of Music with Julie Andrews twirling around and singing that hills/alive song. As many of you know, musicals are NOT my thing at all. But - thanks to my mom watching this every year as a kid - I know this …

The Viking Land!

A travel blog entry by fernandaseabra


A Europa do Norte é uma região que a maioria dos brasileiros não coloca nos planos de viagem. Primeiro porque ir para lá é bem caro,segundo, porque é muito frio. Finalmente, pode-se questionar: o que diabos tem pra fazer nesses pequenos países cortados pelo Círculo Polar Ártico? Essa resposta não cabe num post de blog ! Tem muita coisa para ver, …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel Royal Christiania Oslo

    Rather Disappointed


    Given the cost and rating (on Expedia), we had expected to receive a high level of service during our one-night stay. Unfortunately, we were greatly disappointed (and on the last night of our honeymoon too). Yes, the location is great and the room was clean, but from check-in to check-out, the service was terrible. We had large suitcases with us and were not offered any luggage service to our room, so we had to cart everything up ourselves. When we got to our room, we immediately looked for the 'hotel guide' to find out what ammenities were available in the hotel, including room service. We couldn't find any such guide. When we called down to reception to inquire of its whereabouts, we were told these were available at the concierge desk and that, no, they wouldn't deliver one up to our room but that we had to come down to retrieve one. Right before we left the room the next day we discovered that they do have their list of services on the TV, but b/c we hadn't turned on the TV until then and no one (or no sign) told us to do so, we didn't know about it until it was too late for us.

    Great location, good value


    We stayed here on July 11 and 12 2006, room was bigger than we expected, decorated very modern as well. The breakfast (included) was unreal - a massive selection - good introduction to classic Norwegian breakfast. We would definately stay here again. Good service too.

    Good Hotel, Excellent Location


    We stayed at the Royal Christiana and have fallen in love with the Clarion chain. The hotels are always in excellent locations, the prices are not unreasonable and the rooms are always well put together.

    Good Hotel


    We have just returned from Osla and stayed at the Clarion Royal Christiania. This hotel was in a good postion in the City. Very near the train station,the underground was just opposite as were the bus station and bus stops....Very handy especially when you have been walking all day. The hotel staff were very helpful and spoke good english. The pool is small, but my husband did talk to other guests there, which was handy as we gained some top-tips for the city.

    Reasonable Business Hotel


    This hotel in the center of Oslo is a comfortable business hotel with well-furnished rooms, a very complete breakfast buffet, and good internet access. The staff was well-informed about restaurants and helpful in all aspects of my stay. However, it is not a luxury hotel and its amenities are limited. Little to criticize, but little to love.

    Good hotel in the center of Oslo!


    Me and me girlfriend stayed at Royal Christiania summer 2004. Both were very pleased! It's a very good looking hotel and the staff is nice and polite. The breakfast was good, but when my parents stayed there in oct/nov the selection was much better. So if you want the best breakfast, don't travel to Oslo in the summermonths :) The pool is very small and so is the gym, if you can call it that. But I really recommend people to stay at this hotel, it's a nice hotel and the location is in the very center of Oslo. Just minutes walk to the Royal Castle and Karl Johan (The mainstreet in Oslo).

    A good choice


    We stayed at the Royal Christiana for 6 nights at Easter and found it to be a very pleasant hotel. The room was not huge but we didn't feel cramped despite staying there nearly a week. The room was decorated in whites and browns and was very clean. As one other reviewer said, it's probably time for this hotel to have a little bit of a decorating update, especially in the corridors which were beginning to show the scuff marks of several years without re-decoration. We had a room overlooking the street across from the main train station but we were not bothered by noise as the double glazing works very well. No little bottles in the bathroom (which didn't bother us - less waste) but rather dispensers attached to the wall.

    Not so modern at all


    We've stayed at the Christiania for 3 nights on the end of january, at the 10th floor. Rooms are reasonable decorated, for design-lovers a bit out of date (especially the bathroom). Beds are convenient: be sure to reserve an outside chamber (not adjacent to the atrium) because of fresh air and calmlyness. Breakfast is OK, but during weekends very crowded and be sure to be on time. The relaxation area is pool with 3 work out machines adjacent to the (cold) whirplool; the sauna's didn't work properly and are seperated for men and women. Location is good: close to the central station and in the city. The hotels has specials on his own site such as 3 nights for the price of 2 ...cheaper than a lot of other hotel-sites.

    Great value suites


    Stayed here several times in their suites. Really good value, two seperate rooms seperated by a door. Good size bathroom, comfortable beds with duvet's.

    Breakfast is a huge buffet, but be warned, at Christmas it can be a bit of a bunfight! Huge atrium, most rooms look down into it. However, at Christmas they have a band playing for Christmas parties and the noise can be loud in the rooms.

    Great location, very close to the centre of town as well as the station and the buses.

    Small indoor swimming pool (cold at Christmas!), good sauna. Nice little bar.

    Overall, a good hotel - I'm staying there again this Christmas, so it can't be too bad!!!!
