“A Mixed Bag”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

The Negatives: We had a Business Class room and it was small by American standards but average in Europe. While the hotel is on a "parking" street, the tram goes by on the corner so you do hear noise, particularly if the window is open. Thee are no drawers or cupboards to put your clothes in, and little room to put out one suitcase, so storage is a problem. While there is no icebucket in the room, if you go to reception, they will give you a wine bucket that is open and will place some ice in it. The "bar" is actually five stools that are scooted up to the small reception area and it is closed most of the time. The shower is one of those that wets the sink area. A small glass partition is meant to contain the spray. It does not work and a slippery floor is dangerous. You could put a towel down to sop it up, but the management only wants to give you one bathtowel a day. The wifi connection is horrible. At all times, at least something was broken at the front desk. (The credit card machine, the copy machine, the fax machine, etc.) The primary complaint would be that the bathroom door offers no privacy. It is on sliders, but even if it stays in the sliders, there is a significant gap between the door and the wall. Positives: the housekeeping staff are terrific. I don't think that the hotel had more than one housekeeper working during the day, but they did a great job of cleaning the room. If we wrote a note and requested something, the housekeeper made sure that we got it. I have to put in a good word for Klaudia. She wrote us kind notes and although we never saw her, she seemed like a cheery presence. In addition, the breakfasts has a great selection of good yogurts and granola, along with everything a global tourists might want. (Like baked beans.) The chef was available and friendly. The kitchen staff put together a fabulous champagne, fruit and chocolate tray for us. (Be aware that the breakfast area is sunny but not large and can become crowded.) Rooms on the sixth floor have nice views. While much of the view is rooftops, the sky is lovely in the evening and the seagulls make for a feel of being in Norway. The hotel is convenient to almost everything. Trams are easy to catch and nearby. Central Station (train) will require a taxi but the price is not bad. Overall, the hotel was fine for us, but I'd probably not stay there again.

The location is not particularly nice, on a street with lots of traffic, but it's central, just a few steps away from Karl Johan (Main Street in Oslo). Value for money is good as you get modern, comfortable rooms. Just don't expect a nice view or extraordinary service, because this is simply a place to sleep comfortably.

My husband and I stayed here 4 nights in total in May 2014 - 2 at the start of our Norway trip and 2 at the end.

Arrival - you can take the train from the airport to downtown and it is a few blocks from the train station. We arrived late morning after our flight got in. Although early for check in they had a room available so let us check in early.

Both rooms: The room was a decent size, tv, wifi worked well in the room and room darkening curtains (important in the spring / summer). No problems with noise from street or other rooms. No in room safes or mini bars (none of our Norway hotels had these).

First stay was room 308 - this was a room meant for allergy / disability. Wood floor instead of carpet, shower with no step up and grab handles by the toilet.

Second stay was room 311 - regular room (see pics).

The only thing wrong with both rooms were the bathroom doors. They have sliding doors. In room 308 it was very tough to pull open / closed. Can't imagine doing it if I had a disability. In room 311 it was off the track (not possible to "lift" bakc on track) so it wouldn't close fully and properly.

Breakfast Buffet: Very good European buffet with lots of options.

Internet worked well in the rooms but if you want to use the terminals in the lobby there is a charge that is quite expensive.

Location is central within easy walking distance to a lot of the main attractions. Next door to the hotel is a small grocery store (Kiwi) if you need anything.

Overall this was a good hotel for the cost and we would happily stay here again.

For those not used to traveling in Europe / Norway:
1) Rooms are smaller than in the US
2) Hotel ratings are different - generally a 4 star hotel in Europe would be 3 or 3.5 star in the US
3) Bathrooms usually have a shower or a bathtub but not usually both. If you have a preference check before you book
4) Queen / Double beds are two twins pushed together. The hotel can organize the room two different ways then depending on what is requested
5) Duvets are separate for each person - not one big one. Great if one of you is always hot and the other always cold
6) Pillows are flat - you'll have to double them over to prevent your head from hitting the mattress.
7) Common US breakfast foods are not usually served except maybe at larger chain hotels (oatmeal, pancakes, waffles). Eggs are usually hard boiled or scrambled - not omelettes.
8) In Norway most people speak English very well - so no worries about communications.
9) In Norway food and drink are very expensive compared to the USA. A pint of beer is $10-13, a half liter of soda is $5, a glass of wine is $13 to $17. Entrees in an average restaurant run $25. Things are about half price at the grocery store. If you're on a budget breakfast is included, get groceries and make sandwiches for lunch and then eat dinner out.
10) European public transit is very nice, clean, pleasant and efficient. If the schedule says 12:02 the train leaves at 12:02 so don't run late as it will already be gone!

Have a great time on your trip!

Whatever you expect from a hotel of the chain Park Inn hotels by Radisson blu, you will find it also here. Clean, modern, good service and full facilities. Plus in the middle of the city of Oslo.
Also typical Oslo. High quality at high price!

Located in an area where they lock the reception before midnight. At arrival they couldn't handle credit cards and one of the two lifts was out of order.

Room had been occupied earlier the same day by other guests and their reservation papers in German were left in the middle of the room. Since their reservation was starting the same day it seems they must have been moved to a better room. Just wish housekeeping had cleaned the room afterwards. Room was tiny and a third bed had been squeezed into the room in place of ordinary furniture. As a business traveller I didn't need that. Internet is limited to 1 device.

The bathroom had two blinding fluorescent lamps. Even so the shower wasn't clean. From the looks of it the previous guest must have had a cold. At least I hope it was a cold. Disgusting. Oh - and the drain in the sink was completely clogged.

Breakfast service was polite, and the buffet provided a nice selection of freshly cut fruit. As Park Inn is the discount offer from Radisson (you don't get everything for 200 €/night) there is no bacon and their ham is of the quality you would never buy at home.

During check-out staff demanded my credit card even though the room was pre-paid. They realized their error and returned my card. With around 30 nights every year in Oslo I have seen the most, and it doesn't get any worse than Radisson Park Inn.

Dear Nubus,
Thank you so much for your property overview. Let me just begin by apologizing. This is certainly not the sort of feedback I am accustomed to. You may be certain that all related personnel will meet with me directly, as this is not indicative of the level of service we aim to provide. I did appreciate you noticing our strengths, too, and admire your evenhandedness.

I do hope you will consider a return visit. If you'll be so kind as to contact me directly, so that I can ensure that your next visit is indicative of a true Park Inn experience.

All the best,

Oslo is one very expensive town so this hotel is a real value deal. Centrally located ideal for all parts of the city centre and trams and the new harbor district, boats to the museum island etc. Spacious enough rooms, well appointed (don't expect a view!), with kettle and free wi fi (can be a little fiddly). Excellent breakfast included. This is not a hotel you're going to be hanging out in, it's a base, but a very good one.

Good things about this hotel is right in Oslo Center,Breakfast with lots of choice in the morning.A shop just around and you can pick up drinks and snacks.
The rooms like most Park Inn brand. Overnight staff Tommy are very helpful.

The bad things about this hotel are:
The WIFi are sucks,for over US$200+ a night,you cannot log on the free or paid one for over 15 mins. without a cut out in between.
No matter you're using,IOS,Android,IE ,all are the same.Sometime you cannot log in at all when too many people using at the same time....Please get rid of Swisscom !!

The breakfast room are too small for such a big breakfast,the staff DO NOT check if people are hotel guest and let them use the breakfast.Unless you are up early or else you got no chance to get a space to eat !!
