Trip to Scandinavia 2013: Hotels

We were in Norway for a total of 6 nights and we had stayed at 4 different hotels. Even though it can be fun to stay at different hotels to experience the 'feel' but it can be quite tiring as we need to unpack and pack luggage the next morning.

Anyway, just to share the views of the hotels in Norway and Denmark.

1. Radisson Blu Plaza, Oslo
This is the hotel in Oslo City so it has better toiletries and slightly spacious compared to the rest. Wifi is free for hotel guests and is accessible from rooms as well.
There're a few small markets and malls and pubs around this hotel.








2. Union hotel, Geiranger 
This is at countryside so only basic toiletries are provided, rooms are slightly smaller. Wifi is available but connection wasn't too strong.




The hotel owner loves to collect antique cars and has a few showrooms at the basement, open for public


3. Quality Hotel, Sogndal
Also at countryside but room is better than what I've expected, looks more contemporary too. Wifi is available. And there's a small balcony which we din't had the chance to use at all.











4. Radisson Blu Royal, Bergen
Yep, another Radisson Blu ;) I think the company is quite well known here in Northern Europe. Since this is at the second largest city of Norway, facilities are satisfactory. It's just opposite the Bergen fish market, and is just next to the Hanseatic buildings. Very good location.
The hotel practises space saving concept, the make up and luggage table are foldable, and no wardrobe, just hang the clothes by the wall. A very good concept I'd say.











5. Radisson Blu Scandinavia, Copenhagen
Was in Denmark for only 2 nights, so stayed at the same hotel. Also another Radisson Blu, it's surrounded by a small lake, and has a casino just beside it. Room is spacious and clean. By far the best hotel throughout the trip.

In general, hotel rooms are relatively small and pricier in Northern Europe, if you were to compare to other European countries like Paris. Probably because it's not so famous among tourist, and also the high living standard, as well as the limitation of lands.









But I guess everyone is quite satisfied with what the tour arranged. And I personally am not so fussy when it comes to staying at hotel, as long as it's clean and odor-free, the rest would just be small matter.

  3. 我觉得欧洲的住宿价钱高的问题,所以这些都算住得很好很好了!!!
    要住得比较好就可能不在城市里, 住在郊外就住得更好。
    其实我跟你一样,只要卫生清洁我就ok了^^

  11. You stayed in all good hotels. This Raddison Blu hotel chain is very good class and not cheap lah. I normally will not look for cheap hotels in overseas again after several bad experiences.
