Should be the name of this hotel. Getting to it was an ordeal and a nightmare!
Arrived late at night to OSL. No shuttle bus at that time.
Trying to get a taxi, I felt like I was in Islamabad.
Rude taxi drivers wanted up to 650 NOK to drive to the hotel. If they where interested at all to drive me , as they thought the distance was to short. (6km)
After a heated discussion with the drivers, I decided to walk to the hotel, rather then be conned. Half way in the cold night, I was "rescued" by the Norwegian police, that stopped and drove me to the hotel. They told me that it was a common problem with taxi drivers and tourist being conned.
The hotel was located in the middle of absolutey no where. Ok for me just staying the night. Pretty good standard, good bed, and silent. Oddly, the towels for the second person where hidden in the closet...!? Great breakfast and friendly staff.
Going back to the airport I took the shuttle. This has got to be the only airport in the world where you have to pay for the shuttle! 70 NOK!
With two Choice hotels next to each other and other hotels close by, I think that the hotels could have their own joint shuttle service.
next time going to OSLO I will stay att the Radison hotels that are actually located at the airport.
