OSLO, Norway—New research from the website hotels.com shows that Norway is no longer the most expensive country in Europe when it comes to hotels.

Hotels in both Switzerland and Denmark cost more than hotels in Norway, their study shows. In 2009 it cost 1120 Norwegian crowns (US$171) on average for a night in a hotel in Norway. This is three percent lower than the average price of 2007.

Though the prices in most Norwegian cities have decreased, the harbor city of Stavanger still remains the most expensive in Scandinavia for hotels; it costs around 1251 Norwegian crowns (US$191) per night—seven percent higher than last year.

The hotel price of the capital of Norway, Oslo, dropped most, costing an average of 172 U.S. dollars, six percent lower than last year.
