Essa viagem começou aos despedirmos da Paulinha e do Kid no aeroporto de Vitória e também ao despacharmos nossas malas direto para Oslo. Ai meu Deus! Será que chegaremos juntas????? Nosso voo até Paris é pela TAM, enquanto de Paris para Oslo iremos pela AirFrance.
O voo para Guarulhos foi tranquilo e chegou antes do …
Dia de conhecer Oslo!
Vigeland Park e Museu dos Vickings são atrações imperdíveis na cidade, mas antes precisamos de um farto café da manhã SEM PEIXE CRU. O café é muito bom, mas o salão fede a peixe. Que saudade do cheiro enjoativo de bacon e ovos mexidos que eu sempre reclamo …
Flight to Oslo was packed, we flew over Bergen and the fjords for the only part of the flight that was clear enough to see anything. We arrived in Oslo at 10am and our bags both arrived with us. Caught Airport express train to Oslo central station which we found to be fast, efficient and easy to use. After a few attempts got the right exit from the …
We arrived in Oslo on Monday, checked into the Radisson Plaza Hotel. Evidently this is the hotel of choice. Joseph and I didn't have confirmed reservations. It seemed all the hotels in town were filled. I don't think this was true; I think they were all holding out for Bill Clinton and Kofi Annan. I was given a room on the top floor (32nd) for one …
... night, culminating in me sticking headphones, my fingers and eventually wads of toilet paper in my ears (I couldn't find my earplugs; they're probably back in Brussels), and yet still I heard it. At one point, I thought there were two other people in the room, and then thought I'd been put in a male dorm by mistake. Let me get one thing clear: I know I snore. I know I snore because on occasion, I wake up wondering who is making so much noise, and then realize it's ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Oslo
Good & central business hotel
Very comfortable rooms, in the centre of downtown Oslo. Good breakfast and all business amenities.
Can definetly recommend it for business travellers, for private travellers I would choose a less central hotel.
Money well spent
Great hotel, staff helpfull. Breakfast very good. We stayed there in September during a very big weekend and have no complaint´s. Try Sonja Heinie room for a great dinner. Also beds unusually good and the location of the Plaza is great of course.
We have just returned from a three night break at this hotel. We had a great time and would recommend the hotel. It is centrally located and immediately opposite the central railway station, so very very convenient. The hotel itself is large, bright, modern and very warm !! The staff were helpful, breakfast was good and the rooms were very comfortable, but maybe a little small. There were some nice touches heated bathroom floors etc. All rooms had great views. As for thefts there are signs all over the hotel asking guests to not leave bags unattended and advising that there are pickpockets around. We experienced no problems and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We are fussy when it comes to accomodation but would definately stay here again. An excellent choice for a short stay in Oslo.
Beware of thieves!
One of my bags was stolen right in the lobby from beside my chair. It was a two-man job. While one man distracted my attention, the other grabbed my bag from the other direction. The security personnel were not particularly helpful and denied it was captured on their cameras. We learned later, it was indeed viewed on the cameras. They admitted "this happens all the time" and there is not much we can do. Several days later when we were checking out, we overheard a couple reporting the 'loss' of their passport and credit cards to the receptionist. Not a good recommendation for a supposed upscale hotel!
Unable to cope with it's own size
Stayed here in September 2004. Close to Central Station but not a very nice area. Extremely busy hotel. Facilities not sufficient for number of guests. Had to queue to check in, check out and even breakfast where it was difficult to find somewhere to sit. Recently refurbished but not quite finished. Light fittings not work properly and hole in wall in bathroom. Staff too busy to be helpful.
We stayed at the Radisson SAS Plaza for 3 nights in September of 2004. Very good experience. The hotel itself is very nice, the rooms well furnished. Great view from our standard room. I loved the sauna. It's near the top floor so you have a great view of the city from the sauna itself.
I stayed two nights in this hotel, and the view has been fantastic. The rooms are very decent, with little Scandinavian details that you don't find in every business hotel of this kind.
Was good but not what I expected
Nice hotel, good location. Easy access to the Central Station which makes life VERY easy. Very helpful staff. Early check-in without any problems at all.
The room was quite small and looks like we got one of the not-yet-refurbished rooms. So it was not what we expected.
Even though we stayed only for one night, they kept our luggage for us for 3 days so that we could travel around Norway easily.
I stayed in the Radisson Plaza for a week in February while attending a Trade Fair at Lillestrom, south of the city. The hotel is excellently located, connected to the Oslo " S"Central Train station and Jerbanetorget T-Bane (underground metro) stations by a skybridge. Frustratingly during the winter, the skybridge is open to the weather.
A very nice hotel
Very nice hotel with beautiful rooms. Go to the top bar it is very nice and the view is fantastic. This is the highest hotel in Scandinavia. Their breakfast is also very nice.
