I am a regular customer, staying there 4-5 times a year, so am biased. Granted, the other Radisson by the Royal Palace is better (if nothing else, the location next to the bus and train station of this one means lots of shady characters hanging out outside), but I have stayed at the Plaza one so many times it feels like home. A home where they recognize you, where they give you the same room if you request, where the internet is free and fast, the cleaning lady loyal, the mostly empty pool (except for the usual hours of athletes, i.e. 6 am) welcoming, where you learn to avoid the breakfast room from 7:30 to 8:30 am and the check out area at 9 am or 12pm. It is a very busy hotel, but if you can avoid the mass rush hours, it can feel quite exclusive. The restaurant on the top floor has a gourmet menu to knock you off your senses. I have done a lot of writing in that hotel, with nothing to interrupt but the two birds eye views of the city: Oslo in white mostly, and Oslo in green during the short blessed summer months.
