CRAZY hotel prices in Oslo
Thought for the day..” Thinking about exercise burns a total of 0 calories”.
” You have to be ODD to be number one”.
Anybody planning a holiday to Scandinavia is going to need a lot of money, and if they are intending on visiting Norway, then a great deal of money. Searching on the internet yesterday for hotels in Oslo, Norway, found some very interesting prices. Can you believe that a SINGLE room in Oslo last night could cost up to 1073 euros (=UDS $1202)? And that is not a special room, just a standard hotel room (judging by the pictures).
And it is not just the hotel prices in Norway that are crazy. Everything from a bottle of water to a meal out has high prices. If you are fond of a drink with your meal, then get ready for a big shock. Most alcohol in Norway can only be bought from the government run alcohol shops (Vinmonopolet) and even in hotels and pubs, only up to certain times. It is a similar position in Sweden and Finland, where the government controls the sale through the government run shops (Systembolaget in Sweden, Alko in Finland). So if you are going to eat, drink, sleep and be merry in Norway on holiday, then the final bill could be a nasty shock.
