Clarion Hotel Royal Christiania, Oslo

This four star hotel is perhaps somewhat arge impersonal, but it is bright, well-maintained and well run.

It was built to house the officials in the 1952 winter olympics, the only time that a Capital city has hosted them.

As such it has the best location in town - right in the centre, opposite the central station.

The rooms are comparatively large, and although decorated in quite minimalist browns still looks a little dated from whenever the last re-fit was.

The hotel is basically triangular with a large , if covered, courtyard where meals are taken. If is fine for buffets and the superb buffet breakfast, but hardly appropriate for any kind of romantic intimacy.

The only other real minus point I could find was the 'swimming pool' - which you could hardly drown a rat in.
