gallery HOTEL REVIEW: Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Oslo

Hey lovelies,

I went to Oslo for my birthday weekend and one of the hotels I have stayed in is the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Oslo! This beautiful 4 star hotel is in the midst of the center of Oslo and definitely worth visiting! Oslo is such a great city to visit because there is so much to see and to do and if you are looking for the perfect place to stay, a place with beautiful rooms, fantastic views, a sauna and a pool and oh wait, your own SKYBAR, The Oslo Plaza is definitely the place for you!

LOCATION + HOW TO GET THERE
When you arrive at Gardermoen Airport you can take a train to Oslo city center. You have the standard train and the fast train that will go to “Oslo Sentralstasjon”. The hotel is located in the city center of Oslo and very conveniently almost directly next to the Central Station of Oslo as you can see in the map below. From the Central Station it is just a 5 minute walk and therefor very easy to reach. Schermafbeelding 2015-11-15 om 21.53.11The hotel is located in a nice area and also a 5 minute walk away from a shopping mall!
The Oslo City Mall is definitely worth visiting and if you are there, go to the Froyo Shop on the first floor for some delish Froyo!

MY ROOM ON THE 27TH FLOOR!

I had the pleasure of staying on the 27th floor so you can imagine how great my view was.
I could see all over Oslo and it was just magnificent.  I stayed in room 2703 and I have to say, the room was quite spacious.Schermafbeelding 2015-11-15 om 22.32.38A closer look to what I was actually seeing: Schermafbeelding 2015-11-15 om 22.32.49
SO HOW DOES THE ROOM LOOK YOU MIGHT ASK? – let me try to paint you a picture:
When you enter the room you will see some cabinets at your left side where you can place your luggage and hang your coats. There is also a full-size mirror which is great if you want to do a last minute outfit check before leaving the room. On the right side you have a door that will lead you to your bathroom. My bathroom also came with a bathtub which was great.

Directly next to the bathroom door on the left side you had your ‘working corner’ where you could easily sit with your laptop at the desk provided working on your website like I did, or just on some other business.

Next to your ‘office’ area you will find the bed. The amazingly comfy bed! The room also has a big screen T.V if you decide to have a nice night in. On the left side of the bed, directly next to window you have a nice sofa where you can relax and enjoy the magnificent view!

The room also has a minibar filled with a lot of goodies:

A big plus, there is a mini coffee making machine so before heading down to breakfast you can already make your own coffee in your room. For me this is such a luxury because I honestly can not function without a cup of coffee in the morning. Haha!

SAUNA + POOL

The hotel also comes with its own sauna and pool. A perfect way to start your day is to swim and enjoy some quality time in the sauna. The Oslo Plaza offers both. What I thought was really cool is that in the sauna you will again have an magnificent view. Even in the sauna it’s self you have this small window that ables you to look outside and enjoy the beauty of Oslo- if that is not amazing I do not know what is.

Also in both the sauna area as in the pool area the entire space is been surrounded by big windows so where ever you go, you can enjoy the gorgeousness of Oslo by just peeking out of your window!

BREAKFAST:OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs a foodlover the breakfast for me is very important. Also, the breakfast is your most important meal of the day so I always take extra notice when I do these reviews on what hotels are actually offering. They offered several pastries like croissants and chocolate buns but also normal bread.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhat really stood out for me was the different kind of fish they served at breakfast. I think eating fish at breakfast is a typically Norwegian thing. Even though I love fish it is not for me in the morning, however a little bit of smoked salmon could never hurt so I sticked with the salmon and some blue cheese.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
