Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Oslo
Ranked #31 of 102 Hotels in Oslo
Reviewed 31 October 2011

I can't know the Radisson Blu, it is what it is -- a big hotel much like other Radissons around the North -- but for me it was too impersonal, typified by the windows that wouldn't open. Also, being in Norway (the "Saudi Arabia of the North"), prices were too high for my budget although the hotel was no more expensive and even less expensive in some cases than comparable hotels in Oslo. I was able easily to walk to most of Oslo's sites and the train station is actually in the same urban mall as the hotel entrance, so no complaints on that account. If you stay here, you will be comfortable but so far as having a grand experience, no, that's not what the Radisson Blu is about -- at least not on a tourist's budget.

Room Tip: Might as well go high. I was on the 16th floor I believe and the view over the harbor was grand.

We stayed here for three nights in Ocotober 2011. Nice Hotel with great veiws over the city on the higher floors. The service was great. The room, a business class room was a bit small but good none the less. The bathroom had heated floor and the room had all that one need. The view from the room was great. Breakfast was a bit crowded on the weekend days when everybody goes for a late breakfast. breakfast it self was fine. the bar and restaurants are also fine. the hotel is pricy like everything in Norway. Location is good, near all the central places and sights. Overall worth to return to.

Room Tip: go for high floor

We stayed at this hotel for 1 week, the rooms were nice, no dresser drawers in a suite, but we somehow managed to stay organized. The staff is very accomodating, Everyone speaks English. After a week we found the menu hotel menu very limited, We enjoyed going up to the top floor but they only change the menu every other week, the chef did try to vary for us. They stored our luggage for a week while we had to travel. Since we were there for business many times we were in the room working, Room service works with you. Overall great experience. In general OSLO is EXPENSIVE. The staff is most appreciative of tips,locals dont tip. 10% is awesome.

Room Tip: Business suites do not have dresser draws.....

Stayed at this hotel recently and loved it! Really good location, right in the city centre - especially very convenient for the central station. Nice, comfortable room with good amenities. Great views of the city from the higher floors! Very nice breakfast.

All in all, a great hotel at a pretty good price!

Stayed here for a few nights for work, it was great. Hotel is really close to Oslo Central Station so was easy to get here from the airport train station (and normal train station at that).

Room was clean, service was excellent and bed was comfortable.

I had a late check out organised till 6pm and it was done with no fuss, and they didn't charge me as they weren't full.

Overally very happy with with my stay here.

Not much charm and all, but the staff is professional, the location is good, the rooms are clean and quite new, the view from the rooms on the higher floors is great, and the breakfast buffet has a large selection of just about everything.
