In an architecturally pleasing, mustard-yellow building that echoes traditional Norwegian architecture, this hotel is a solid choice. Monochrome rooms are a bit short on character, but comfortable enough – and the inclusion of both breakfast and a dinner buffet make it great value (at least for Norway).
