Bottom Line

Without a doubt, the most notable aspect of this 194-room chain hotel is is the colorful, eccentric decor, which hits you immediately upon entering the lobby and continues in the guest rooms, hallways, and even the fitness center. The hotel's forgettable chain name belies its true quirkiness. The location is just a short walk from the city's wharf and main square, but it's the graphic novel-esque headboards, peek-a-boo sliding bathroom panels, and wall-sized lobby photos that will stay with guests after they leave. Food Story, a stylish café, occupies half of the ground floor, and serves three meals a day in a stylish atmosphere. For more traditional hotel decor, consider the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel down the street.

Oyster Hotel Review


Easy access to most sights, in part due to Stavanger's small size.

Map of Comfort Hotel Square

Comfort Hotel Square is not far from the city's wharf and main square, and is a short walk to most of Stavanger's other tourist attractions as well.

Stavanger is a small city with charm to spare. Old Town is one of the most appealing historic areas in all of Norway, with cobbled streets, quaint white wooden houses, and flowering gardens. The city also has the advantage of being close to both beaches and skiing: In fact, it's possible to drive to the slopes in the morning and hit up the beaches in the afternoon. Boat trips to the Lysefjord depart right from the harbor; though the Lysefjord is not as famous as the Sognefjord, it's still very beautiful and access is more convenient. For cultural attractions, Stavanger offers several interesting museums, including the Canning Museum and the Petroleum Museum. (Stavanger is a hub for businesspeople in the oil industry.)

  • 4-minute walk to Old Town (Gamle Stavanger)
  • 4-minute walk to the Norwegian Canning Museum
  • 6-minute walk to Stavanager Cathedral
  • 7-minute walk to wharf (departure point on the harbor for Lysefjord cruises)
  • 13-minute walk to the Norwegian Petroleum Museum
  • 8-minute drive to Godalen Beach
  • 24-minute drive to Sola Beach
  • 55-minute drive to Brusand Beach (considered Norway's best beach)
  • 1-hour-30-minute drive to skiing at Sirdal
