What a contrast. Of a delightful matter. The day I arrived Norway, after a month of yoga and a seriously simple livestyle in India, I checked in at a hotell in the heart of Oslo. With Oslo Sentral station, Karl Johan, Østbanehallen and the Oslo Opera House as my next store neighbours I could not have felt more urban! A feeling I haven`t felt for a while! And I do live in a small town called Rosendal on the westcoast. I had one day to spend in Oslo before I flew back home to Rosendal. And I wanted to fill up my urban account!
I chose Comfort hotell Grand Central. And I do not regret. What a hotell. What an atmosphere. What a supercool interior! Room 312 a spacious double room with a hidden bed in the wall, gymnastic rings (!) hanging from the ceiling, double sinks, grafitti and supercool interior & details. It`s not their cheepest room, but it was an experience.
I slept like a princess in a tremendously comfortable bed. My madras in India was sooooo hard! The daylight flowing through the arched windows and sheer elegant curtains made an incredible atmosphere. I brought tea, free of charge in the lobby, to my room and sat in the wide window cills looking down at the busy city. And there was plenty of room for me to do yoga!
PS: Skip the elevator and take the stairs to experience the old fashioned staircase and lovely old doors.
