“Very run down! More like a cheap and shabby hotel. Very dissapointed”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Very dissapointed with my recent overnight stay here. The room was looking very run down and shabby and not very clean. The list of faults include the following (but there was more faults!). Blood stain on shower curtain, stained toilet, dirty corners in the bathroom, worn head board, damaged table (held togther by gaffer tape! I kid you not) and badly hung curtains that would not even fully close. The room was more like something you would get in a cheap budget hotel not a supposedly upmarket hotel. The only reason it was not 1* is the location. Walking distance to the terminal is fantastic! Anyone thinking of staying here should try the Park Inn which is also walking distance.

Situated very close to airport. No noise at all from airport. Nice hotel employees except 3 persons (one female breakfast day 2, one female lunch day 2 and one conference host). Check in/out super, rooms ok, bathroom ok - a bit cold floor in bathroom, hair shampoo ok but hair conditioner "thick", fantastic to find chocolate powder as an alternative to coffee and tea in room. Tip to hotel - be even more active in completion the breakfast and lunch buffet. Kaviar should be at breakfast buffet in a norwegian hotel. Conference - nice brain food and equipment. Clean and tidy area. Wrong sign at info display both 1st and 2nd day. Dinner in restaurant was ok and wines perfect balanced to food.

The location of this hotel could not get any better. It is one of two hotels within walking distance from the airport terminal. I got a hotel on the Oriental floor (3rd floor) facing the west. Airport noise was not an issue, the windows seemed very well isolated. Loud music from the room next door, kept me awake for some time during the late night hours.
Good breakfast buffet.

This airport hotel does not deserve the name of Radisson Blu. The property looks old, with the corridors and public areas refurbished but the room leaves a lot to be desired. Instead of the hip, modern look that is associated with this brand, the room looked like an old motel room with dingy carpets and drab furniture. To our surprise, there was a crib inside the room, even though our party consisted of two adults. Is this the norm in all the rooms or did the hotel make a mistake? We did not make a fuss since we were only staying for a night. The bathroom was disappointing as well. The toilet did not flush properly, the bathtub drain was clogged, and the shower curtain only spanned half of the tub, which seemed sadly comical. In the morning, the room smelled faintly of gas fumes, probably from the jetliners.

Unlike other airport hotels with internal walkways, one has to walk out of the airport into the cold air of Oslo, and walk a few hundred meters before reaching the hotel's doors.

On the positive side, the staff were very friendly and helpful, answering all our questions with a smile. Also, the hotel provides free internet, which is highly appreciated.

Stayed here for one night so was very handy for flight next day.Room was clean and bright and warm-useful as was -15 outside.The room was basic but functional for the one night-the door opening out instead of in was a bit strange!!
Breakfast was beautiful-plenty of choice both hot and cold and loads of fresh bread,crackers etc.
Service was ok and staff polite.

Was there one night for conference. It is in walking distance from gates, which make it very suitable if you have an early flight next day. Or else you go there for a business conference. I cant think of any other reason to stay there.

The rooms are well isolated for noise from the airport, but now and then we smelled airfuel in our room. The room was also cold, and took several hours to heat until pleasent temperature, even when heat was set to maximum. Outside temperature was -20C which is cold, but not very unusual in the region during winter. The room was a little dusty, so we think it had not been used for a while.

Food, breakfast and dinner, was ok. Some was good, other a little strange. They have a food concept with healtier food, expect fish and healthier grains. Some dishes was served and meant to be cold, including bolied potatoes and cod, which i am only used to eat as warm dish. I would prefere warm.

Ca 200 ml coca cola with ice and a little lemon slice in the bar will cost you 49 kr = 6,6€ = 8,9 $ . No need to say moore.

Used service once. The previous guest had locked the room safe and left. When we notified the hotel, they fixed it in minutes. Internet is wifi and good here.

There is nothing to do here at night. Express train to Oslo is about 20 minutes, but does not run very late if you want a night on the town. And a taxi back vill be VERY expencive. Want to see Oslo, book in centrum, got an early flight, its ok, but check when breakfast is served.

A good choice for early departures, with just 5-10 minutes from the room to the gate. The berakfast is not very special, but the rooms are convenient. The atmosphere can also not compete with other Radissons.
