Amy Adejokun Section editor

This hotel, in the centre of town, is a popular destination for businessmen between September and June and for holidaymakers in July and August. It is comfortable and stylishly decorated, but rather lacking in charm and its imposing size doesn't lend it a particularly warm atmosphere. Indeed, the shear size of the place with its 503 rooms make it the biggest hotel in Norway! We cannot blame it, therefore, for trying to attract families in the summer, but still, there is some room for progress...

    Location 8.97 /10

    In the heart of Oslo, some 300 ft away from the central station and shopping centres, you can't miss this impressive 14-floor building.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    There are 14 floors with 503 rooms, so finding your way in this hotel is like walking through a maze! The biggest disadvantage is that the view from half of the rooms looks out onto the restaurant! Despite the fact that the restaurant is inside a glass structure, the view from these rooms does not tell you what the weather is like, nor does it make it possible to let fresh air into the room. As far as comfort is concerned, nothing is lacking in the rooms (television, minibar, mirror, trouser press, etc.) and in terms of their interior decoration, a contemporary style has once again been favoured. There are also numerous lighting fixtures providing good visibility, if needed, which can be dimmed when the evening draws to an end. However, not everything is perfect, the wall-to-wall carpet, for example, is in a rather poor shape. This tarnishes the look of the rooms which seem well-kept at first glance. As for the bathrooms, all have a bathtub and a towel-warmer, which is much appreciated in a city of sub-zero temperatures. The marble fixtures are also abundant, but, on closer observation, they are far from perfect. In terms of comfort, every floor has an ice maker, an ironing board and a shoe-polishing machine: apart from the ice maker, that's almost everything you need to be impeccably dressed for work!

    Overview 9.20 /10

    It recently underwent renovation works which aimed to create a stylish atmosphere in the place: photos of dancers cover the walls of the reception area which is overlooked by an open mezzanine with a modern bar. However, the area where guest are welcomed, with its modern furniture, its bright colours and high ceiling, is in sharp contrast with the outside of the building which is rather outdated. In front of the reception desk, for example, there are large white leather seats that actually get you hoping that the wait will be long. Nearby, there are four transparent, suppository-shaped lifts (not a good idea for those who are afraid of heights), an escalator and an area with a 100ft high glass structure that houses the restaurant. It creates a shaft of light that shines into the restaurant but unfortunately there is no terrace for warm summer days.
    As far as the entertainment facilities are concerned, there is a small round swimming-pool that is ideal to relax in after a hard day's work. You can also burn off some steam on the running machines or by pumping iron on the machines that surround the pool. Finally, if you're feeling a bit lazy and require some pampering, you can book a session in one of the two available massage parlours.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    The restaurant, situated inside a 100ft tall glass structure, is spacious and stylishly decorated. However, it is not the friendliest of places and the food is good but not really up to the standards of the establishment. The buffet breakfast is varied and plentiful, but as for the lunch menu, it is a bit lightweight and lacks in finesse. For dinner, there is a buffet in the summer with a fairly impressive choice, and the price-list reflects the diversity of the dishes on offer. In order to attract families in the summer, there is also a children's dinner menu.

    To know

    In the summer, there is entertainment and children's menus to make the establishment a little more family-friendly.
    The hotel is the biggest hotel in Norway!

      The convivial atmosphere, welcome and level of comfort of this hotel, located bang in the city centre, helps explain why its guests keep coming back. It offers exactly what you'd expect of a town hotel: comfort, family cuisine and no unnecessary frills!

      The Grand is a real institution in the Norwegian capital. Housed in a charming city-centre residence and offering a modern yet authentic ambience, it is often the first port of call for any celebrities visiting the city. Its women-only services also make it the only hotel of this kind in the world.

      This modern city-centre tower housing a hotel aimed mainly at business men and women is none other than the Radisson Plaza. In addition to the luxurious comfort of the rooms, the hotel has a gym, a sauna, a swimming pool and a gourmet restaurant, all of which can be enjoyed with spectacular views of the city of Oslo and its fjord.

      This unique and stylish city-centre hotel, Oslo's new kid on the block (opened in 2008), will have you under no illusions as to what sort of establishment it is. Indeed, contemporary art-lovers will feel right at home here, whereas others may find the atmosphere of the place a little cold. As for the rooms, everyone will be disappointed in this department; in our opinion, the hotel is not yet worthy of its 5-star rating.

      This is an elegant and cosy establishment and the perfect example of a hotel where you will feel at home; the only difference being that it's cleaner and tidier and the interior is rather more classic. However, its perfect location at a short distance from the harbour and town centre is overshadowed by a three-lane street that runs past the hotel. You will have to wait until 2012 to see it disappear!

Add to all this a little bit of history and you have one charming hotel, certainly one of the city's best in terms of value for money and location.

      This is the sort of hotel that you feel really at ease in. It is comfortable, calm, relaxed and intimate, just like home really! Every room is different; the restaurant is out of this world; the lounge area is very pleasant, the staff are welcoming and the setting is original! There is nearly nothing bad to say about this establishment... but then one always manages to find something.

Indeed, if you are looking for a strategically-located hotel with comfort guaranteed by a hotel chain with sound values, then this is the place for you.
