Some people say the last is always the best, maybe that’s why I find the hotel we stayed at for our last night in Norway so good! Haha…… no prize for the right answer for the name of this hotel though, cos it’s a no brainer! Scandic Oslo Airport is the lovely hotel to be mentioned here, as seen in my post title 😛
This hotel is very close to the Oslo Airport, only 3km and a 5 minute ride away by the free shuttle bus. It is also pretty new, in fact just opened on 5 April 2010, a 1-year-2-month old hotel! Oooo I love new modern hotels hehe. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure on what a good hotel (in my view) should look like:
Ooops… don’t be mistaken by the plain exterior of this hotel! To be frank I was a bit disappointed when our coach stopped here & thought it’s just another of those hotels we have been to so far, but be patient, enter the hotel first before passing your judgement! 😉
Out of the 3 hotels and 1 cruise that we stayed overnight so far, this is the only hotel that boasts such a modern/ sleek room furniture & fittings with big LCD TV! We were pretty excited when we spotted the LCD TV upon opening the door to our room lol. Oh and 1 of the channels were showing some soccer match between Sweden and another Scandinavian country (forgot which 1) hee.
If I really had to pick on this hotel, I guess it would be there is no magnificent view out there, but I really don’t mind haha. If only we could stay 1 more night here…… 😛 The breakfast restaurant was equally swanky too, see for yourself. 😉
After several days of “training” at Scandinavian buffets, be it breakfast or dinner, we’ve learnt not to be “greedy”, just take what suits you & enjoy/ savour the food haha. I like it here that they have various types of healthy bread, and even the beverages served are organic fairtrade! Cool! 🙂
