Accommodation In Oslo for Couple

by Lenny26

Hello, I am looking for some advice on a room in Oslo for a couple in mid February. I was hoping to find something nice (perhaps on the romantic side) but have been stumped by the prices in Oslo. Therefore, I must watch out for an affordable option! I have been looking for a hotel room, but would also consider a cabin if at all possible outside the city if accessible by train/bus for example. I would appreciate any advice on this...
Thank you kindly!

Hi - we stayed at the P-Hotel. Can't say it was "romantic" but was reasonably priced by Oslo standards. Room was good; location was great. Enjoy Oslo!

Maybe you can find something here on "Oslo on a budget"?

Please note that the Nordic World Ski Championships 2011 will take place in Oslo from 23 February. The hotels might get fully booked and maybe more expensive when that date is approaching. What is your budget on accommodation?

Re: Accommodation In Oslo for Couple

Thank you kindly all for your replies. I have been checking all the links/information you have provided. So far, I am finding some possibilities, but a little expensive so far! As regards my budget, it's difficult to know what to say as I have had to reconsider my initial thoughts. I knew Oslo was on the more expensive side, but I have been quite surprised so far just how real this is... The best options so far seem to be around €250 each for a room for the 5 nights and this is even hard to find! Anyway, I will keep looking and thanks again for the advice!
King regards...

Travel Tips for Oslo

Oslo - a green city

by penny_g

Oslo is said to be one of the greenest cities in Europe. Its inhabitants count 400 000 people, which makes the city not as dynamic as other European capitals.

Do not omit to visit Frognerparken and the Vigelandsparken within it. Enjoy the numerous statues and sculptures, presentic the human body and its flexibility and reminding a bit of the Socialism. Don't forget to throw a coin from your country into the fountain - it's said that you will turn back and visit the city again.

The daily public transport card entitles you to travel also by boat and visit Bygdøy from the harbour. This is a nice penincula, situated in the Oslo fjord. There you can visit up to three museums - the Kon Tiki, the Vikings Ship Museum and the Norwegian Folk Museum. Enjoy!

Another green place, accessible by the metro (t-banen) is the Sognsvann. Some three km away from Oslo, it offers a great variety of activities, including fishing, jogging, doing some sports or just relaxing. I love this place.

Visit the Stortinget for free and feel what it is like to be a Norwegian member of parliament. On the top, the tour through the Stortinget is accompanied by professional and knowledgable tour guide. You will know much more about Norway, its liberation from Sweden and Denmark and its development to one of the richest countries in the world.

These are just few of the sites I would recommend. The multiculturality, the uniqueness and the slow pace of the oldest Scandinavian capitals.

Vigeland Park

by hassan_abu

A good way to relax is to take a walk in Vigeland Park. Be prepared to answer embarrassing questions, if you go with chlidren, as the whole park is covered by naked statues. Here is an interesting figure. I call it the "angry father" as opposed to the famous "angry child" statue.

In visiting BERGEN, you...

by patoo

In visiting BERGEN, you absolutely must do the 'Norway in a nutshell' tour. IT'S WONDERFUL !!!
Train + Boat You're gonna discover mountains, waterfalls, sometimes the path for the train is so narrow...and it stops each time there is something to see (big waterfalls...) And then you take the boat and begin an enchanted tour on a boat. Fjords, small villages... it's amazing.

To troll or not to troll

by littlesam1

When you go to Scandanavia its difficult not to buy a troll for a souvineer. They are everywhere. Being a sucker for cheap tacky souvineers I found myself being drawn to every souvineer shop I walked past. But I can report that I did not give in and by any troll souvineers, except for one key chain.

i wanted to yell at this guy "Bring me a shrub!"

PRICES...

by Maria_75

Norway is a very expencive country! But there is no need to make it more expencive than you have to. Here are a few advices on how to keep the costs down:

- Alcohol and tobacco:
Don't buy it here! Bring it with you if you can. One packet with 20 cigarettes costs more here than a carton with 200 in Spain, and in other countries it's even cheaper, so bringing it along will save you lots of money. You could even sell and make a bit of money... ;)

- Stores:
There are many different kinds of supermarkets, but there is one general rule; big chains like Ica, Kiwi, Rimi, Rema 1000, Coop, Bunnpris and so on, are normally cheapest. Kiosks like Narvesen, Mix, 7-eleven and many others are more expencive, but open longer.

Check out the many foreign stores too. They are many places around the city, and especially in Grønland and Grünerløkka. Here you find lots of more exotic things, and most of them are a lot cheaper than in other places. Especially fruits and vegetables!

- Attractions
There are many attractions in the city which are free. Some of these places are: Akershus fortress, Vigelandspark (a must-see anyway!), Astrup Fearnley Museum of modern art, Armed Forces museum, Botanical garden, Medievalruins (Gamlebyen), National Gallery, Oslo Cathedral, Parliament and many more.

- Transportation:
First of all; buy your ticket before going on board, as it costs more from the driver. You can save lots of money on buying one of the many cards (read more on my transportation-tips) or an "Oslopass" which gives you free transportation, free entrance to museums and much more. Also remember that a ticket is valid for one hour after you bought or stamped it. In this hour you can travel as much as you like. Tickets are valid on all buses, trams, metros and ferries in Oslo.

- Eating and drinking:
You can find everything in the city; from the cheapest to the most expencive. More expencive don't necessarily mean better quality... Read more on another tip.
