Bed & Breakfast

A Bed & Breakfast can be an excellent opportunity to get to know the people in a different city, as well as refreshingly personal environment to make your temporary home. Though a B&B may be more expensive then traditional hotels, occasionally they are cheaper then the surrounding locations given the inclusion of a meal and the luxury of the environment. For example:
Frognerparken Bed and Breakfast
Eilert Sundts gate 39
0259 Oslo, Norway
Great price, convenient location next to a park and 5 minutes from the trams, with a continental breakfast.
