Isn't this church, on the hill, lovely? It was the first thing that I saw when looking for my hotel behind the Royal Palace (Slottlet) in Oslo.
This home and these FRESH and LOCAL strawberries were next.
We don't have houses, we have apartment buildings, in Macau. Nor do we grow any food… you can imagine my excitement! (My late, great, Grandma Elsie was right. It's the little things that matter. Did you see the decorative window above the door?)
The Entry to the Saga Hotel was really promising. Very urban and eclectic. I enjoyed the printed images on the backs of the chairs. It’s a light/fun touch no? The candles, also fresh, were always lit. Twenty-four (24) hours a day.
This was our room. ( I was in Oslo, as my BFF’s date, for a wedding.) The room, in the attic – was cozy! I loved how bright the room was, due to the dormers, unlike the lobby.
I had a lot of fun taking the stairs – these mirrors made it a lot of fun, in an otherwise forgotten space. Hotel stairs are so very “utilitarian”. Good for them!
Another cozy moment, shortly after settling in to our room, was this café down the street – where I had a cup of tea.
But I got to tell you, if your ever in Oslo, you should really consider staying at the Saga Hotel. I'm a foodie and am thrilled to share that the breakfast buffet was divine. It had all the right Norwegian fixings. This brown cheese is to die for!
Again, the atmosphere wasn't bad either. <insert smile> It tugged on my hearts strings. …I'm typically an early riser – one can only imagine, dear reader, that with jet lag – even more so! That's why all these pictures look rather empty but I can assure you that the Saga Hotel’s Breakfast Bar is rather lively by 9am.
