23.09.2009 Norway‧§ Day 30 § Stavanger

What I booked was some special deals for backpackers, 490NOK for a double room, which is really cheap in Stavanger - all the B&Bs started from 750NOK and all the hotels started from 1200NOK. They then told me that they found my booking but it was on Oct, not in Sep, and said that if I wanted a room then I would have to pay 1260NOK for a double room, because the hotel was fully booked and they would have to move someone down to a conference room! And same for the day after! The staff I spoke to was friendly and kind, she tried to find a room in other hotels for us. She asked me what was my maximum budget, I told her 700NOK for a double room. She then said she would try to find a room for us and would give us a call later, and we could leave our stuff in the storage room, so we set off. I didn't argue with them further because I did not have the booking confirmation - I did the booking when I was in Iceland, 4th Sep I remembered, since I spoke to the manager directly about the booking so I thought it would be fine, but I was ever so wrong. I should have asked her to send me a confirmation email. When we got back to the city center, I went to the tourist information to ask them if they had any solution to our situation. The staff told me that I had to talk to the manager of the hotel to sort it out. There was nothing they could do about it. They also checked the availability of rooms in certain hotels, most of them were full and the cheapest one was something I could not afford (can't remember exactly, probably something around 1600NOK). We then walked around the city center and looked into the shops. Stavanger was a very pretty city and I could tell that it was wealthy, too. The buildings and shops were all very colourful.

I went for it as we just needed a place to stay and I didn't want to spend time looking for accommodation. As long as I could sleep and wash myself, it's OK. We then went to gamble Stavanger, it was very pretty, too. 拍攝器材:Pentax espio mini + 過期 2 年的 Fuji NPH 400 拍攝器材:Contax T2 + 過期 2 年的 Fuji Reala 100 We went back to the hotel around 8:30pm, another staff told us that it was 700NOK for that conference room! The manager was not there and that was too late for me to find another place to stay at, so I said nothing about it. But then later on I found that there was no bath there! Just a toilet! I spoke to the staff about it and at last she opened a shower room for us (it was for staff). We were also asked to leave the room by 8:30am on the next day as a group needed to use it in the morning... When I went on the internet and I found that there are at least 9 rooms avaliable for the next day! Not sure about that day as I could not find any thing from booking.com. I was very anyry because of the attutide of a senior staff whom we met in the afternoon, the price they charged me for what they offered for us for the night, and I felt that I was deceived as they claimed that the hotel was fully booked for the day and the day after. I took no lies. When we checked in in the afternoon, there was no manager around, only two staff(I guessed so as the other staff did not wear a suit). Although I could not understand Norwegian, I could tell by the senior staff's attutide that she simply wanted to get rid of us - either paid 1260 NOK for the room or went away (Not the friendly staff I mentioned before) Moreover, when I said I was willing to pay 700NOK, I meant for a double room, not a conference room. If what they could offer us was a conference room, I didn't think they could charge that much - should be just as much as the backpacker deal (The light was on all the night in the conference room, not comfortable I must say). Since there was no manager around at that time, I decided to speak to a manager in the next morning about this matter. 拍攝器材:Pentax espio mini + 過期 2 年的 Fuji NPH 400
