The city of Stavanger
Stavanger is a city with many opportunities. A vibrant urban, cultural scene, with shows, concerts, theatre, museums, fjord, mountains, beaches, restaurants and bars. Every weekend gives new adventures. You can hardly choose a more central hotel than Hotel Victoria - when stepping out from the hotel, you can experience several activities. Only a short walk from the hotel are the pedestrian streets, the city square with the fish market, Old Stavanger and Norwegian Oil Museum to mention a few.
Architect: Henry Bucher: Hotel Victoria was completed in 1900, and is one of the prettiest buildings in Stavanger. It has a unique waterfront location in the old harbour, highly visible for anyone coming to Stavanger by boat and has been a landmark for more than a century. Henry Bucher designed a refined and elaborate neo-renaissance building fitting the ambitions of a luxury hotel at the turn of the century. The building has an elaborate façade with patterns of red and yellow bricks, with white details, and has several classical elements such as the main entrance with slender columns.
The building faces a pretty square, with several other historical buildings for trade and commerce. This used to be a busy spot for travellers and commercial activities, and fittingly the adjacent buildings were the local bank and the customs house. The hotel has also been the headquarter of a local export business, the offices of a travel agency and even the first movie theatre in Stavanger.
