“Wonderful hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

I stayed in this hotel for two nights on a business trip in January 2014.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and did everything possible to ensure that I had a great stay. They allowed me to check in three hours early (at no extra cost) and also to check up three hours late (again with no charge).

The room was very clean, well equipped (tea/coffee making facilities, iron, hair dryer) and had a wonderful view (I was on the 22nd floor). The bed was comfortable and the duvet was the warmest I have ever slept under.

The lifts are amazing - it took around 3 seconds to go from the ground to 22nd floor.

It is in a great location - literally 2-3 minute walk from Oslo Central Station. There are plenty of restaurants within a 5 minute walk. I did return back to the hotel late one evening and decided to order room service (smoked salmon and scrambled egg sandwich) which was delicious and professionally served.

I didn't have time to sample the buffet breakfast but heard from other guests that it was very good.

I would highly recommend this hotel and definitely intend to try other hotels in the Radisson Blu chain in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor for a great view of Oslo.

Stayed here for 2 weeks on business trip. Room was very comfortable. The location is very good next to central train station and metro station. Its also next to main auditorium so can get extremely busy when there's a popular show/concert in town. Being right downtown means you are close to the harbour and the main urban attractions. Oslo is not so big so from hotel can walk to most everything. The staff were excellent. The buffet breakfast was really quite good with large selection and never any shortage. The fitness center has a wonderful rooftop view but is limited to cardio and lower body work. The indoor pool is rather small but difficult to find elsewhere in Oslo. There are numerous eating options but I didn't use them since there are many eating options within short walking distance.

This is the second year I have stayed at this hotel. I conducted business appointments every night at the 34 Sky Club bar and held a dinner at the restaurant next to the 34 sky club Bar. Three points which I brought up to the hotel management :
1) There is no visible presence of experienced or refined hotel management during my entire stay at your hotel.
2) Front Office has made consistent mistakes, misplacing messages and also misplacing a package to be picked up from their desk. Service manager displays lack of refinement, experience and training when handlng a complaining guest.
3) The barman at the night of 11 January, Saturday, from 6.30PM until 9PM, was a source of embarassment for my Norwegian business colleagues. His behavior and incompetence was appaling.
The restaurant manager and staff did well, refined and experienced. The front desk receptionist Steffen, was quick and efficient (except the room key would not work and needed to be re-set daily). The chef and staff at breakfast were kind and friendly. Housekeepers were friendly. The rooms and bathrooms need renovation.

This is a big hotel in the centre of town, which is really handy for the railway station and connections to the airport. The lobby area is big and always seemed busy, with lots of people coming and going. The front desk also seemed busy, however all 4 stations were manned and the staff were all really friendly. A special mention to Viktoria who was an excellent ambassador to the hotel. She gave us a great, personal service that was really appreciated. Thank you. The rooms are clean and modern. The unusual layout takes a while to get used to, but I slept very well - so that has to say something for the quality of the bed! I did use the extra duvet in the wardrobe too as it was -7 outside that day! I really liked the coffee machine - and it worked fine to give me a luxury Nespresso drink first thing in the morning. The internet connection was fast and didn't drop out. All in all, it was a good night stay. I will look at staying here again should I need to return to Oslo.

We held a Meeting here with 340 pax, and everything was so nice organised. Can strongly recommend this hotel. The Meeting facilities was good, the service from the staff as well. We had all meals at the hotel, and it was super. In the skybar you have the best view over Oslo
