Don't let the fact that this hotel is part of the Clarion Collection sway you into thinking this is just another nondescript chain experience. Housed in an ivy-covered, five-story brick building that dates to 1921, the Hotel Gabelshus is a very elegant place to base yourself. Here, you're within a 10- or 15-minute walk of Aker Brygge and Solli Plass. The 113 guest rooms are spread between two wings. The older rooms have a stately appeal, with high ceilings, wooden parquet floors, and antique chandeliers paired with mid-century modern-style furnishings, flat-screen TVs, and big billowing beds piled with duvets. Rooms in the newer wing have floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking an inner courtyard, dark wood floors, and modern furnishings. Public spaces include a small sauna and steam room, a cozy library, and a few sitting areas where you can relax with a cup of coffee and Norwegian waffles, which are offered free to guests between 3 and 6 pm every day. If your dinner plans fall through (or you don't want to brave a chilly night), a nightly buffet that features a spread of hot dishes and pasta salads is included in the room rate, as is a full organic breakfast.—Terry Ward
