Radisson Blu Park Hotel, Oslo4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I've stayed here twice recently now. It's a hit or miss. If you get one of the newer rooms then it's all good. But if you get one of the older rooms it's quite terrible. The carpet is super yucky, the room is noisier, colder less comfortable. I checked in and was given an older room at 4pm. I called the reception and asked if I could be moved to a newer room. They tell me that the hotel is full. Whatever. But then my 8 coworkers check in 2 hours after me, and they get new rooms. so basically they lied to me, and could have put me in a newer room but just didn't want to bother. I was there for 8 days so it would have made a difference to my stay I feel. On the good side, breakfast is good, internet is good.
The room was very old, without a small coffee table. The bathroom was absolutely filthy, and half of the hotel was in construction. The breakfast buffet was very cheap with an unprofessional dining room staff. The only positive point of this hotel was its location, which was situated in a very nice area with the pleasant lake close by.
Breakfast with room with a wide selection of food. A beach is right down the hill in back of the hotel.
This hotel was fine, very clean and in a nice, peaceful area outside the city. It was great for me because I was attending a concert at the Telenor Arena close by. If I were there just to see the city, I would probably prefer to stay in the center. But it's is only a 10 minute train ride to the center so it was fine in the end for city sightseeing as well. Overall I was happy with my stay, the staff were friendly and the setting was gorgeous and peaceful!
I wish the bar stayed open later (I think it's supposed to stay open until 1 but wasn't the night we were there) because there isn't much close to here for eating/drinking. The room and bathroom was clean and comfortable enough. Wish they also had an ATM. Coming from the US it was hard to find a place to get cash out in that area.
This is an outstanding value and is only 15 minutes by bus from the city center. The bus comes every 10 minutes and it very nice. The hotel is in a very quiet area (used to be the Oslo Airport, but is now an industrial park (with the emphasis on park).
Very good food.
This seemed a little far from the town center, but it really wasn't! It is a 10 minute car ride or 20 minute public bus ride(number 30). This hotel price included breakfast and the staff worked hard to be friendly, keep all clean, and were professional in all respects. The little beach was very nice too! Nice novelty, in a quiet area. The hotel is off the main road, not totally obvious the first time you look for it. Thanks to the miracle of GPS, it was no big deal. Without it, I might have not had such an easy go. I spent late evening and mornings here, the action is pretty much in town. The price and clean rooms, still made this a great option. If you have a family, are single, or whatever, this is a good consideration.
Radisson SAS Park at Fornebuparken, in Oslo, was a great place to land after arriving in OSLO transatlantic. We rode the expensive but very nice dedicated airport train, to Fornebu. Be aware, that the website for this hotel and also from Orbitz is misleading, in regards to its location, which would appear to be right outside the train station. There was no signage or courtesy shuttle to the hotel from the station. Taxis were available at a quite an expense. We walked approx. 20 min. on dedicated bike / walk paths, with LUGGAGE, after asking numerous helpful people for directions. We chose this location due to "nearness" to mass transit (which was not entirely the case). We did, later that same day, use the bus, which stops close to SAS Park, to reach downtown. We also pre-scheduled our Hertz rental from this hotel, which has a Hertz desk, so as to avoid airport fees. Beds, room, hotel, were comfortable, and clean. Windows appeared to be the norm, rather than AC. Computer, for guests, was in lobby. Hotel has a "beach" & dock on the fjord. There was no pool or exercise room, which we could find. Bicycles were available, no charge, to ride on the extensive bike system, in Oslo (This was a +). Breakfast buffet was very nice and included. However, after 8 AM, it appeared that many desirable items were depleted and not being replenished. Safe was available behind the hotel desk (not in room). Place for frig / mini bar, in room, but none there. Desk staff were courteous, knowledgeable, fluent in English, and friendly. Our trip was a driving trip of Norway, with departure to/from Oslo. I may also recommend Radisson SAS Nydalen, directly off ring 3, Oslo, where we stayed prior to transatlantic departure (T & bus station & super market was right outside hotel). Parking under SAS Nydalen, for night was approx. 28.00 USD (ouch). I would consider staying at SAS Park again.
