I arrived late at night, and the hotel was apparently full apart from a suite on the 7th floor. I was warned that I might have to move rooms the next day - which meant that I didn't quite settle in, and in the end I didn't move. My suite was huge - a good sized bedroom, an large living room, with full floor to ceiling glass windows on two sides, opening out onto a roof terrace, and a large bathroom with a jacuzzi and sauna. The odd thing was that this potentially wonderful suite contained old, scruffy furniture - the wooden table and bedside console had peeling varnish and stains on them, and the mock English regency wallpaper in the bedroom was about 40 years out of date... So much more could have been done with the space. However, I slept well, the breakfasts were fine (although no soya milk and no brown goats cheese, which I always look forward to in Norway), and the hotel is conveniently located for the centre of town.
