Quote: I spent a week in Oslo on business. Having been here on vacation previously, I was disappointed to find little to prompt me to check out life after working hours.

I checked in rather late, having started the day at the office. The receptionist was either in an unpleasant mood or she just didn't like me. Yep, no smile. Or maybe it was her sad-looking, worn uniform that had her down? And then I had to carry my own luggage to my room - a service one generally takes for granted, even at B&B's around the world. However, when checking out on the last morning I noticed that luggage could be left at reception to be taken up later - upon request. I finally found my room and was met by a blast of cold air. Now I understand that they'd like to air the room from the last guest, but it was autumn and not very warm outside. It took a while for the heat to finally ki...Read More

Ahh ... much better indeed! I only spent one night at the Plaza, but it sure beat all the nights spent at the Scandinavia!Check in was a breeze - uniforms still sad looking but smiles were in abundance. The hotel is in a cul-de-sac, so there's a chance the place can be crowded with cars.

So it was off to Oslo...again. I have actually been for leisure reasons just haven't gotten round to posting that trip yet. This time the usual suspect hotels were fully booked so I was lucky to get a room at all. There's an exhibition centre in a town called Lillestrøm and when they're busy, the hotels are busy.Getting to the hotel was no problem at all, from the airport I took the airport express train to Skøyen station. If you sit on the left hand side of the train (on the disembarment side) you'll see 'Elkjøp' as the train stops--leave the station on that side. Cross the road towards the taxi stand and keep walking towards the buildings ahead (McDonalds on the left). You may also see the big 'H...Read More
