“What is internet?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

This hotels looks nice on the outside, but when you step inside and have to do work from your bedroom it is the worst experience ever.

The internet is so slow that Tripadvisor took 2 minutes to load. The inbox for my mail took 5 minutes to load. Skype conference with my co-workers aborad: forget it! In order to connect to the WiFi i had to try over and over again as the browers could not reach the login-page.

I wonder how the management at Oslo Plaza want's their business visitors to be able to do their work? This is a true disaster! The calender says 2014 - this internet deliver worse than a 56kb modem from the 90s.

Hotel is very convenient to the trains, buses and downtown area making it ideal for business travel. No need for a car just take public transit. It's a little expensive but the staff is great and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else.

This hotel has a wonderful location next to a park, the kings palace, many stores and restaurants. Has a safe in the room an exercise facility and swimming pool, ironing board and fridge, wireless internet access. Breakfast selection was outstanding and staff was very pleasant and helpful. Only complaint was coffee maker in room did not work very well.

Like all of Oslo it is fairly expensive but reasonable compared to alternatives and wonderful place to stay in general. Airport bus takes you right to the hotel. Railway station is a mile away.

Aside from the high prices for everything, we loved Oslo. The weather was great for the huge influx of hundreds of thousands of students to parade before the king on their national day. The people we met were all very pleasant.

Maybe my expectations were too high (considering the price). It's much nicer from outside... The high glass building dominates the city. Good location. Inside it's just an average hotel (more 3 stars than 4).
Devil is in the details: the coffee in the room was from a cheap brand and a tiny bottle of soap and shampoo for two persons is far from enough. Very few indications around (about the sauna, for example, that is not mixed... Ladies with ladies, gents with gents...). The pool is very small (and I found cold water).
Breakfast is OK with huge variety (just the scrambled eggs were "failed").

Very good hotel, breakfast excellent! Swimming pool a bit too small but OK for getting wet. It was difficult to get right information on invoice for my company, thankfully I had time to wait. I o not like the location of the hotel, a lot of homeless people around. But it is very close to the train statation and the airport train.

We stayed 2 nights in mid May. It is conveniently located by Oslo city station and reasonably priced. It has a good selection of food for breakfast but other than it is very avarage hotel. There was never a staff at conceirege. Reception was nice enough. Our room was quite as we specifically asked for. Room was avarage but sufficinet. Bathroom amenities on the other hand was not sufficient.

Outstanding breakfast buffet, friendly and courteous staff. The threatened hotel worker strike in May 2014 did not happen, so it was a non-event, although the hotel could have done more to alert guests. The only notice was posted in the elevator. It might have been a better practice for the check-in staff to alert guests who might be affected -- but I am guessing that the staff was on the labor side of the strike, and had no stake in lessening the economic impact that even a threatened strike would cause.
