Norway is known to be an expensive country. But surprisingly Norwegian hotels aren’t more expensive than the ones you find in many other countries. Moreover, most hotels in Norway include breakfast in their price.
To prove it, here’s a choice of six hotels in prime locations to explore Norway’s top attractions. We have included Oslo, Bergen and the Norwegian fjords, the Lofoten islands, and also Alta, one of the best places to see the northern lights.
Most likely you will arrive in Norway by Oslo. To stay in the Norwegian capital, we suggest Oslo Guldsmeden, an eco hotel in the city centre with a lovely spa. An all-organic breakfast is included in the price.
Ole Bull Hotel & Apartments
Bergen is the gateway to the fjords of Norway. If you choose to stay in the city, the Ole Bull Hotel & Apartments is just around the corner from Bergen’s main attractions. Apartments include a kitchen and a dining area, and offer free WiFi.
Located in Balestrand, this 18th-century hotel is where you want to stay if you’re visiting Sognefjord. Most rooms have balconies with fjord views, even those in the more modern building. The surrounding gardens are beautiful.
Located in Norway’s northernmost county, the city of Alta is one of the best places to see the northern lights. From Alta, you can also travel to the North Cape. The Scandic Alta is a typical Scandinavian hotel that offers simple yet functional rooms in a perfect location.
