Hotel Review: Park Inn Oslo

Oslo has its fair share of places to stay - most can be quite expensive, but I was able to find a reasonable two-night deal at the Park Inn.  This is a Radisson property located within a short distance from the main train station and in the center of many sites to see in central Oslo.

Property specs

  • 118 guest rooms
  • Breakfast buffet in the breakfast restaurant
  • Non-smoking property
  • Free High Speed Internet
When traveling overseas, I'm always looking for a nice place to stay that includes some type of reasonable internet option - just so that it's easier to access maps and look up possible places to eat.

This property did not disappoint - our walk from the train station took about 10 minutes, and then we were there - check in was fast and efficient, and because I had booked through Hotels.com all of my charges were already taken care of. 

Our room was small and comfortable - just enough space for the two of us, and still there was room for a desk and decent bathroom.  The shower was a bit of a disappointment - I still haven't figured out why Europeans love the "half" glass wall that opens at the back and lets all the water run everywhere.  Had the same problem at the Holiday Inn in Bilbao.  No matter...the room was clean and service impeccable - dad seemed to enjoy it!

Daily excursions and fun restaurants are only a short distance away.  We didn't even bother with the main tram/train system - we walked everywhere.  Karl Johan's Gate is only a 10 minute walk and many good Norwegian restaurants can be found all around.

Can't recommend staying here enough on your next trip - give them a try, you won't be disappointed!
