We chose this hotel without knowing the city of Oslo so that is always risky. But for us (family with 2 young kids) it turned out to be a good choice. Important to us were the location (within walking distance of the city centre), a secured parking for the car, and the room and breakfast were very much OK. If ever we were to go back to Oslo, I believe we would stay here again.

Over the years many fires have ravaged this part of town, but the colourful old wooden buildings and narrow cobblestone alleys have been carefully restored to their original medieval characteristics" I love this part of town and spend some time wandering through the various shops and lane ways although it is still busy with tourists despite the inclement weather. Further around the harbour I come across Bergenhus, Home to Bergenhus Fortress, built to protect ...
... become quite familiar over the next couple of weeks – a car ferry. With scenic views including many mirrored fjords all around we ploughed on and when it came to stop for the night we mostly found something equally spectacular (Norway allows you to wild camp anywhere that’s 150m from any house). We were very glad to have decent curtains and not too many windows in the van. We were regularly putting up with ...
