Med en beliggenhet 350 meter over Oslo sentrum, har Holmenkollen Park Hotell Rica en fantastisk utsikt over byen og Oslofjorden. Den eldste delen av hotellet er bygget i Dragestil i 1894, og er en arkitektonisk severdighet. Hotellet er opplyst om kvelden, og kan ses fra store deler av Oslo.

Holmenkollen Park Hotell Rica is beautifully situated 350 meters above Oslo city, and has a fantastic view over the city and fjord. The architecture of the oldest part of the building is called Dragon style. It was build in 1894 and the architecture is well worth seeing. The hotell is illuminated during night, and can be seen from most parts of Oslo.

That was worth seeing! Very impressive and swanky hotel. I have been to Holmenkollen but i don´t remember that. Dragon style, now I know more, thanks!

Wow! Amazing place. I don't think my budget would allow me to stay there, so thanks for taking me there on the cheap! Excellent shots...

Jag älskar hus med "snickarglädje"

Reader Wil sa...

Perfecte photos of this beautiful building. Why did we miss it when we were in Oslo and Holmenkolbakken? Well, who knows, may be I shall see it another time.
Thanks Valkyrien for showing! Thanks for your visit too. Have a great week!

A very lovely building with some interesting features. The wind chimes are special.

What a beautiful hotel. It looks like a fantastic place to stay. The setting is perfect and the details on the hotel are so beautiful.

Nästan lika flott som Tveitas Klipphotell ;-)) Apropå körsbärsblommande träd så var det en speciell upplevelse att promenera under detta tak av körsbärsblom. Blommande jakaranda på Lissabons gator är annars ett minne som jag bär med mig. OCH det må bara upprepas: Kvaliteten på dina bilder blir bara bättre och bättre! Alltid lika spännande att gå in på din blogg och se vad du har funnit på! Du har en känsla för det vackra!
Tänk att du en gång i tiden var lite tveksam till Internet - ja du tiden går och vad gjorde man egentligen innan man blev uppkopplad! Ha en fin tisdagsafton och hälsa till Hovnarren!

What a spectacular building and what a beautiful day. Apparently the Spring has come your way.

Erin sa...

i love this architectural style...just beautiful. and the inside of the hotel looks wonderful.

have a great day.

Tarolino sa...

Det var mej en otrolig byggnad. Arkitekturen är mycket intressant. Påminner om kinesisk stil, varav namnet drakstil skulle jag tro. Metallpiporna påminner mig om vårt Sibelius monument i miniatyr. Det fanns många fina detaljer att titta på här och bilderna är väldigt fina. Mycket ljus och skärpa i dem alla. Snöflingorna gillade jag särskillt.
Må vara vackert om natten också.

Fint väder tycks ni också ha och gräset är så grönt.

Bryan sa...

Beautiful shots! I love the one with the wind chimes. What focal length is that taken at? It looks to be wide angle as the chimes appear to be going off in all sorts of directions.

Your EG Tour Guide sa...

It's a majestic building. I bet it's beautiful lit up at night too.

Ebie sa...

I am speechless! These are wonderful shots. I like best the lobby with its chimes.

Rune sa...

Et nydelig bygg det der! Og bedre beliggenhet kunne det neppe ha fått.

I just love that bottom photo. Since joining the Shadow Shot meme at Hey Harriet's blog, I see shadows so differently. This is a spectacular shot and the shadows really make it. What exciting lighting. And thanks for visiting.

Lindab sa...

Interesting to see the inside of the hotel, having only seen the outside before on our visit to Oslo.
