Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Oslo
Ranked #33 of 102 Hotels in Oslo
Reviewed 5 April 2013

Considering the cost and the type of hotel you are booking (37 floor gym/pool, sky bar, impressive lounge, etc) the rooms warrant a restyling.

Furniture is worn out, scratched and busted. The carpet floor (btw why carpet and not wood which you find in 90% of hotels in Norway?) is by now full of stains and holes. Toilet is clean but many signs of rust and mold.

Overall feeling is that this used to be a top notch place but it is slowly falling apart!
View from the rooms is amazing, gym and sauna are great. breakfast is plenty and crowded but what can you expect when having 600 guests per night?!

I think average is the score it deserves. Fine for a night stay on business trip but not a place I would return to or bring my girl for a romantic weekend.

Very clean and friendly and professional people. We went from a mini cruise and we stay there in Oslo. Very close to city center and walking street. Very nice in general and for first time I taste an Smørrebrod.

Considering the cost (and even factoring in the cost of staying in Norway), the hotel had the feel of a Travelodge/Premier inn in the UK. The room had not been properly cleaned - there were crisps under the desk and even a cucumber (!!) in the wardrobe...
The room was very basic, two single beds even though I had asked for a king size
Breakfast is a no go area - there are far too many guests for the space given over for breakfast - this means that you have a search for a chair and will have to share your table with a number of strangers.
Forget the Irish bar - very expensive and very poor food and the 34 floor bar - while the view is fantastic, the prices are out of this world, even for Oslo.

Room Tip: Try another hotel

The Radisson Blu Plaza is a wonderful hotel with about the friendliest staff I have encountered. I broke my general rule of not staying near train stations to stay here, but I would not do it again. The hotel has no downside except its location; the breakfast is great, the food in the bar is excellent, the rooms are comfortable. However, it is across from the stadium and next to the train station, and the neighborhood reflects that. I do not think the neighborhood is unsafe. It is just not particularly appealing.

Professional and clean hotel right in the middle of Oslo. Could be located in any major city though and doesn't really have anything typical norwegian athmosphere. Some loud music from ball room in first floor was annoying.

Nice location, good pool and gym facilities. Highly recommended and right next to the train station so handy for the airport only being a half hour away. Good views and excellent restaurant. Always book online for best prices

I like the Radisson blu chain generally speaking, and a one stay in this one (the Plaza) for me epitomised the brand. Efficient but not effusive front desk, big choice and good quality self service breakfast, reasonable value (especially for an expensive petro-economy like Norway). Comfortable, modern rooms with all the services you expect of a business hotel. Central location with easy access to public transport, notably the airport train which is faster and 10% of the cost of a taxi. What's not to like?
