My wife and I, along with two other couples, stayed at the Clarion before venturing out on Norway in a Nutshell. Given the high cost of everything in Norway, i.e. dining out, buying a cup of coffee, etc., the Clarion Bastion FREE amenities including a full buffet breakfast, afternoon waffle (really a pancake) and a light evening meal, makes staying in Oslo at the Clarion Bastion the most reasonable and affordable hotel in any of the Scandanavian countries we've visited. On this trip we stayed at the Raddison Blu in Alesund, an overnight on the M/S NordNorge (Hurtigruten ship) and the Comfort Hotel Hoberg in Bergen before returning to the Clarion Bastion in Oslo. We think the Clarion Bastion was the best of all lodgings we had in Norway. The beds are the most comfortable, the rooms clean and nicely decorated, the staff, i.e. Patrick and others, the most friendly and accommodating and the location ideal for those planning to travel in Norway by train as the train station is but five level blocks away. Regarding Patrick, after doing Norway in a Nutshell over four days, we arrived back at the Clarion Bastion after the 9PM end of the evening light meal. Patrick graciously provided us with a tasty sandwich shortly after our arrival. That kind of service is not found everywhere and was greatly appreciated after traveling all day from Bergen.
Thumbs up for the Clarion Bastion.
