Spa resort or hotel near Oslo?

We are in the planning phase of our holiday to Norway, and have already booked Hurtigruten for part of the trip. Before returning home, we were thinking of spending 2 days in Oslo, and I was wondering if there was any resort or hotel with lovely hot pools, etc., as one would find at spa resorts, in Oslo or the surrounding area? It would be nice to just really relax at such a place before returning home again.

Would appreciate any advice or feedback.

There is a better one outside Bergen if that could suit your itinerary

Many thanks, will follow up. (I would imagine it would be very expensive, but will see. Hoping it will not cost 'an arm, a leg, and a kidney'!).

Starting to look like a spa resort could just be too costly, but still waiting for one to respond with costs. In the meantime, please could you advise which area one should try to stay in if in Oslo. Something where it would be easy to get to shopping, museums, etc., etc. We will not have a car, so would have to rely on public transport and the like.

Thanks!

You need transport to get to many attractions anyway, so I suggest you start with the selection of hotels available, narrow down and come back on the forum with a shortlist.

Downtown Oslo is compact and there are lots of hotels within walking. For hotels further check distance to metro (T-bane) or tramway.

You probably get what you pay for in terms of location. Look at hotels along Karl Johans gate or a block or two from that. The Palace (Slott)/Nationaltheatre end is the most desireable and expensive, the station end somewhat cheaper and dowdier but no particular worries about safety.
