First Park Inn Hotel opens in Oslo

German Rezidor group is investing heavily in the Norwegian hotel market. They have taken over as main investor in the Radisson Blu Hotel Group after Scandinavian Airlines. Now they are planning a large number of Park Inn hotels in Norway.

A prime location at Øvre Slottsgate, a stone's throw away from Karl Johans gate, and low prices are the main assets for Oslo Park Inn Hotel that open January 13th 2009.

The Park Inn chain aims for those that are looking for no-nonsense accommodation. Park Inn offers bare essentials as safe, ironing board and free wireless access. They have a sensible standard, and offers bar, restaurant, and meeting facilities.

I have stayed in Park Inn hotels in Arendal and Berlin, and have been extremely satisfied by the standard offered by these hotels.

When Park Inn Oslo opens, offering rooms at NOK 995, it place itself on the lower end of the Oslo hotel market. The price will be higher during the working week, due to the business travel.
