“Good Location”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights on a city break to Oslo. The Hotel is in a perfect location, ideal for the city centre, Royal Palace and the Quayside and close to the metro and tram lines. Our room was a Business class room and it was ok, a good size, but in need of renovation. We were on the 16th Floor and the views were amazing across the fjord. The room was reasonably clean, but could have done with a good dust. Toiletries were replenished every day. The breakfast buffet was very good, with plenty of choice. The bar on the top floor is an ideal place to relax after a day sightseeing. We would return to this Hotel if we were to visit Oslo again.

The room is OK but with very old furniture, the bathroom feels like from the 80's.

Positive is the breakfast buffé which has large selection of tranditional Norwegian food.

The location is good, 5 min walk towards the Royal Palace and the National Theatre tram/subway/railway station. They do have a local tram station just behind the hotel building (Holbergs plass) going to the Central station through the city center.

This is a business hotel, with a perfect location. However, being a family visiting Oslo for the weekend, this is not the place. Service mediocre, breakfast medium. Surprisingly unfriendly hotel that might be serving business men in a hurry. This is not for tourists and for people enjoying good Norwegian hotel breakfasts.

Good hotel in good location. Rooms could be bigger, but have be equipped with everything I need. I like their breakfast set and fitness gym. Nice views from the room, if you get a room in the tower. Prices are quite high but is usual in Norway

I stayed at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia in Oslo for three nights in April 2014. Unlike recent reviews here, I was impressed.

I was given an upgrade to a "Business Class" room so I can't say that I saw the regular rooms. Mine (on the 11th floor) was a good size with your average modern bathroom. I'm assuming the Nespresso coffee maker was part of the business level service; others in my party didn't have tea- and coffee-making facilities BUT the hotel provided these free of charge on request, I understand.

The breakfast was amazingly good. There was a huge selection of food and all very fresh and tasty. Lactose-free and other dietary requirements were readily catered for.

The staff were really friendly and spoke excellent English, and all up this hotel made a wonderful base for exploring what I discovered to be a very beautiful city. I definitely want to see more of Oslo if I can.

This is a dull and average hotel in an average city of Oslo. The only advantage is that it has smoking rooms.....rest is very ordinary. The mini bar is always empty and does not provide bottle of water or a tea/coffee machine. The illumination is bad and the rooms are very small. Why cant they mount the TV on the wall and do away with crampy space in front of the bed.

The lobby area is very smart. I didn't eat in the hotel but the food looked good, and the service from the bars was good.

The rooms are awful. Very dated, very worn. It was quiet and I found the bed comfortable, maybe I was lucky.

I have stayed in 4 different hotels in Oslo now and each and every one is worn and dated.

This was not what I expected from radisson however.
