“Oslo, nice but expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2013

Our Scandinavian trip is ending in Oslo, and so are our money... Norway is really so expensive as they says. I complained the taxi price in Finland, but it's nothing compared to Norway. I guess the salaries here must also be in right level.

The hotel is nice, everything went well. Rooms are nice and it was easy to get transportation from the hotel.

As you would expect from an Oslo hotel. It is expensive compared to the rest of the world. Without having the quality or service you would expect with the price tag. However, about par for Norway.

Situated in Nydalen, a bit of distance from the main pedestrian streets of central Oslo, the location is just average.

Rooms are nice and clean, but the restaurant is below average on both accounts. The breakfast itself is quite good though. Service is overall good.

Convenient parking in the basement garage.

Good for one- or two-night business stays. For vacations you can do better.

visiting for a short buisness trip. I was happy with the hotel ammeneties, rooms decoration is very strange IMO, bed is fairly ok.. breakfast was nice. Very good services in lobby, food etc.
All in all, as long as you get some corporate rates, it is a good hotel but not an amazing deal...

Probably the most crowded breakfast room I have ever seen although the staff were helpful. The room was OK, the hotel was OK, lots of wood, very Nordic. There's not much else to say, a solid business hotel but nothing to inspire or draw you in. Lifts (elevators) were a bit of a pain and the views nothing to write home about.

Why choosing a hotel in the middle of the centre when you can choose a quite place right at the T-bane station only a few minutes away? We really enjoyed our stay; warm welcome and very nice staff. The rooms had different surpising decorations and were big enough. The hotel was very quiet at night which resultet in a good night sleep! The breakfast buffet was really good. The only minor comment must be that I adore plane fried eggs but int the most hotels in Norway you find them fried together with bacon, I prefer that seperately. The bread, fruit and salmon were lovely! Nice lounge bar. The rooms were clean and got fresh towels and soap every day. (Only the maid came in to our room twice, without waiting a second after knocking!) We had a lovely stay and absoluty will come back and prefer this hotel to others!!

Dear Tomtomnor,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.

We always strive to deliver the best guest service, combined with comfortable rooms and quality food. We are therefore very glad you recognised that and that you and your family had a nice stay with us.

Next time you come visit, we will be sure to serve you a plain fried egg without the bacon. Just ask the server and the kitchen will happily prepare it for you.

Have a lovely day!

Kind Regards,
Cathrine

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night. The room we were first given stank of cigarettes so we complained and were given a superior room. This room wasn't any nicer except the landing was decorated and we were on a higher floor. We would stay again.

Have stayed a couple of times at Radisson Blu Hotel Nydalen, Oslo. The staff is very friendly and fortcomming. Rooms are a little bit on the small side, but they have everything needed including free wireless and cable internet connection.

The breakfast buffet is also fairly good - all in all a pleasent stay.

They have 3 check-in counters, but I have never seen more than one of them staffed, even when people are waiting in line to check in or out.
