Fodor's Expert Review Rica Hotel Kristiansund

41 Storgaten, Kristiansund, Norway

It's difficult to sleep in late at this downtown hotel—the spread of one of Norway's best breakfast buffets makes a hungry stomach stand at attention. Pancakes, waffles, cheese, nuts, fruit, eggs, and seafood are laid out across several tables in the elegant restaurant, Sans, which has won awards for its locally sourced regional cuisine. The rooms may be somewhat less memorable, but are certainly adequate. There's a bit of color play in the textiles to make them interesting, but there's little beyond the basic, but well-kept beds, desks, and sofas. For evening entertainment, head to the top-floor Mood Sky Bar for cocktails or the JP Clausen Bar for live music.
