Business trip to Oslo

This hotel is located in the city center. Easy walking distance to pubs and shopping areas. The bigges plus about this hotel is that It is very easy to get to the hotel from the Oslo airport. Just board the SAS bus outside the airport and it will drop you right outside the hotel door. No need to drag your bags in the snow. Rooms are OK... a bit small I guess but then that is relative as everything is big in Texas :-)

A point ....

Good location, good breakfast, friendly staff. However, for disabled traveler who are hearing impaired, would have a problem with the communication system in their rooms as well as making contact with the staff. They also need to have special rooms for deaf guests where they can have visual alarm in case of danger or fire.

3*

Hotel needs to be renovated soon. In North America it would hardly made a 3*. Breakfast was very good. Staff needs to take a course of customer service.

Quick stopover while in Oslo on our way back home

From the very start as we checked in quite late in the day, to the generous breakfast offered, everything was easy.

Great location, decent accomodations

The hotel was in a great location very near the Karl Johans Gate (main street of downtown Oslo) and even nearer to the Palace. There is a small park around the Palace that you can run in if you're interested. The room itself was a bit outdated but they were undergoing renovations of various floors of the hotel while we were there so I can only assume they hadn't gotten to our floor yet. We had a 19th floor room that overlooked the town and provided for a great view. There is also a bar on the top floor overlooking the Oslo fjord and the town. It offered great views assuming you were willing to pay $15 a beer (which is pretty standard anywhere you go in Norway!). The staff was excellent and nearly everyone spoke perfect English. They called cabs for us and arranged for the very convenient airport bus to pick us up at the front door. Oh and pay attention to the signs in the bathroom telling you to keep the door closed during a shower. The steam from our shower set off a silent fire alarm and warranted a visit from the manager. Apparently steam causes fires in Norway????

Small rooms some have air conditioning

We stayed in Radison Blu hotels in Bergen, Trondheim, Bodo, and this one in Oslo. We would rate this one the lowest of the 4. It has small rooms, some lack air conditioning, the front desk operation is poor. Checking in and out takes a long time. We had problems with our billing even though we had pre-paid via [...].

We took the Olso Grand Tour. It was booked by the hotel. They handled the booking well. The tour was not too bad. The tour guide had problems with English so it made it difficult to understand her. Also, the bus to the airport stops right at the hotel. This was very helpful.
