The hotel is very good located close to most obvious travel spots in Oslo. If you come via the airport, the place to get off is Nationaltheatret. From there, the hotel is about 650 meters away. The hotel has a smiley atmosphere and the staff was very welcoming. It provides most features needed when being on a business trip, including free Internet. I got a room facing Holbergs plass and gate (but you mainly see the Radisson Blu Scandinavia hotel – which I have stayed in several times, so the view was just opposite – seeing in instead of out :-)). The room was ok, although somewhat small. When I checked in they offered a cheap upgrade to get a Superior room. Since I only planned to really sleep, I didn’t bother. Most elements were as expected, including breakfast. The breakfast area was though somewhat small meaning that you might not be able to get your own table if you come at peak time. The TV channels promised Swedish SVT. The set had it preprogrammed but these were not viewable. I admit, I should have complained but at least I do not usually bother about small faults. It was though annoying. The main reason why I picked the hotel was pricing. I paid less than 1 000 NOK for a night. The Radisson was closer to 1 500 NOK. Pricing aside, the hotel is quite ok. So, it will most likely be a safe choice provided the pricing is right and you are not too much into SVT.
