About Hotels in Norway – Hotel rating & classification

There is no official hotel rating or classification in Norway.

In our tours we use the 3* and 4* descriptions just as an estimate of the standard and services of the hotels.
The star estimate is meant to give our international customers a rough idea of the level of quality.
The hotel, room standard and service level in Norway & Scandinavia might be experienced as lower than expected, based on the general price level.

3* hotels in Norway

When we use the 3* description we normally refer to bed & breakfast hotels; hotels without hotel restaurants, bars, room service etc.

The rooms have private shower & toilet facilities, TV, towels and normally a hair drier. Buffet breakfast is served in a common breakfast room.

4* hotels in Norway

When we use the 4* description we normally refer to a hotel with a higher degree of service and common facilities than a 3* hotel.
Normally the hotels have a restaurant, bar and room service (not necessarily 24 hours a day).
The rooms have private shower & toilet facilities, TV, towels, hair drier and normally trousers press or ironing facilities. Some hotels have a mini bar in the room, whereas very few hotels have a private safe in the room.

We generally define Thon City hotels as 4*, due to their centrally location, modern and comfortable rooms with minibar etc.
These hotels normally don’t have their own restaurant.
