Hotels in Stavanger

Cute wooden buildings, a massive variety of museums, and seriously stunning natural scenery: welcome to Stavanger, the oil capital of Norway. Whether you’re passing through on your way to another part of the country, or are planning a longer break in Europe’s largest wooden city, you can find the perfect place to stay in Stavanger with Skyscanner. 

There’s a great mixture of old and new in Stavanger. The city is home to Norway’s best preserved medieval cathedral, and the city centre is dotted with sculptures by the British artist Anthony Gormley. The nightlife in Stavanger is excellent, and is considered to be the best in Norway. The Vagen (bay) area of town comes to life each night with plenty of vibrant bars and nightclubs. There are also plenty of great seafood restaurants to tempt foodies.  

Stavanger’s city centre is small enough to get around on foot. With plenty of great central hotels and apartments to choose from it’s unlikely that you’ll need to use the city’s efficient bus service. If you do choose accommodation on the outskirts of the city you’ll have no problems with public transport, which runs throughout the night. 

The Stavanger region is packed with natural beauty, and is ideal for those who love getting out and exploring the outdoors. The most popular activity in Stavanger is the cruise along the magnificent Lysefjord. If you’re feeling brave you can hike to the top of the famous Preikestolen (known in English as Pulpit Rock). Another wild hiking destination is Kjerag, where you can perch nearly a kilometre above the water on the Kjeragbolten: a rock which has become wedged between two cliffs. Only the brave need apply. If you want to immerse yourself in the fjords and mountains of the Stavanger region you’ll find plenty of great guesthouses and hotels outside the city too.
