Hi, the Raidisson Blu Scandinavia is a great hotel. It is in the heart of Oslo with all sites within walking distance. The hotel has been remoddeld and the lobby, restaurant etc. are all sparkling new. All personal is very attentive, speak perfect english and will help with everything, late checkout, umbrella, no problem at all. If you arrive at OSL gardemoen airport you can take the flybus express bus that ends in front of the hotel and takes about an hour. It leaves every 20 minutes.
Downside for us was the rooms. We had been upgraded to a higher floor room with a view of the oslo fjord (18th floor). The room was very outdated, in no way related to the pictures on the hotel website. Furnishings were old and broken. Bathroom was 1960's. The beds (altough we asked for a king we had doubles) were ok and i slept fine. It seemed they were remoddeling rooms since there was a sign at checkin that you could upgrade to a superiore redisigned room.
So if you visit the hotel and would like to have a nice room make sure you get something remoddeled. If these rooms are like the remoddeled lobby you will be fine. The old rooms are ok to sleep but nothing special!
Breakfast is ok, lots of choices and nice decor.
