  Radisson SAS Airport Hotel, Oslo

Sometimes, it's worth it to spend money to save time. Our flight from Kirkenes arrived late in the evening, and our continuing flight home departed the next morning. Rather than waste time (and sleep) traveling to and from the airport, we decided to stay at the airport hotel.

The Radisson SAS Airport Hotel Oslo couldn't be more conveniently located, just across the street from the terminal. While you'd think a stay at an airport hotel would be quite expensive, we managed a significant discount by booking online and paying for the room in advance (this dropped our price to about NOK 1,100 for a double room, admittedly still not a bargain, but quite a savings from the rack rate of NOK 2,295).

The various floors of the hotel each have a kitschy theme; we were on the "Japan" floor. The room itself was what you'd expect in a business-class hotel, with a large bed, full bathroom, trouser press, hair dryer, and mini-bar. We were happiest with the bed, which we used immediately for a fine night's sleep before our departure home.

Unique Qualities: - Within walking distance of the Airport check-in
- Special web discounts available
- Full business-class buffet breakfast included

Address: Hotellvegen, P.O. Box 163, N-2061 Gardermoen, Norway
Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Across the street from the far end of the terminal (right-hand side with your back to the departure gates). The distinctive structure will catch your attention even if you exit on the wrong side.
