GOOD VALUEPosted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: THE BREAKFAST WAS VERY GOOD ROOMS ARE VERY LARGE AND HOTEL IS IN A VERY QUIET AREA
Cons: AN EARLIER BREAKFAST, 7:30 IS QUITE A LATE START FOR BREAKFAST ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE TRAINS/SUBWAYS TO CATCH!!! YOU PAY FOR TV CHANNELS, 4 ARE FREE
Location: WOULD RECOMMEND BUYING A SUBWAY CARD AT THE TOURIST INFORMATION CENTRE (LOCATED OUTSIDE THE TRAIN STATION). YOU "ADD" AMOUNTS TO THE CARD.
WE STAYED FOR SEVERAL NIGHTS HERE, OVERALL EXPERIENCE WAS VERY GOOD!!! WE DID TAKE A TAXI FROM TRAIN STATION (VERY EXPENSIVE) YOU CAN TAKE THE SUBWAY AND GET OFF AT MONTEBELLO FOR 30 KRONA AND WALK 10 MINUTES FOLLOWING THE SIGNS TO RADIUM HOSPITAL IT IS IN A VERY QUIET AREA (DIFFICULT TO FIND INITIALLY), BREAKFAST VERY GOOD/PLENTIFUL NORWAY IS VERY EXPENSIVE, SO STARTING THE DAY WITH A GOOD BREAKFAST IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED YOU WILL HAVE TO FACTOR IN COST OF TRAVELLING BY SUBWAY 30 KRONA ($5-6 CAN/USA) ONE WAY, TAKES 15-20 MINUTES TO CENTRE OF OSLO, STILL WORTH IT THOUGH ROOMS ARE VERY LARGE AND WELL MAINTAINED

Nice hotelPosted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: big and clean room, very nice staff
Cons: manager respond as client requested
Hotel charged extra money 30 nok for internet, and also charged another 30 nok for TV or Tv-internet, which I never used. I leave a message for manager and ask him to contact me by email, but never get back from him

Nothing IncludedPosted Jun 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel strips down all possible amenities for your stay. If you want to watch something on tv, you get about 8 minutes of programming before it asks you to pay more. If you want internet, that is also going to cost you. If you want breakfast, that normally will cost you as well, however it was included with our stay for some reason. Also be warned there is nothing around this location, maybe some houses a hospital and a 711. Its a very odd place and I would highly recommend to look elsewhere for a hotel if you need to stay in Oslo. However for all my complaining the rooms were very nice, and very well kept. The reception staff was very nice and breakfast was good as well.

ComfortablePosted Sep 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
On arriving at the hotel I was surprised to find there was no reception on entering. There were lots of signs, all in Norwegian only in a corridor with two lifts. Peering through a large internal glass window, I saw doctors, nurses and patients milling about two floors below. As they were the only people in sight, and there was no reception, I went down and asked one of the nurses where reception was. It turned out to be two floors up - you take the lift and reception is to be found near them. The top two floors of the building are a hotel, with apparently 70% of guests being family of patients receving radiotherapy at the Radiumhospitalet. I found this quite strange but soon got used to it - there is no hospital smell, paraphernalia etc. to be encountered anywhere in the hotel. The room was very comfortable, with a good-sized TV, armchair, desk and desk chair, and a comfy bed. The windows were huge and double glazed, the floor wood. I could see the main fjord from my window which was lovely, and it wasn't overlooked. The bathroom had a great, powerful hot shower and the whole room was immaculate. Very comfortable.

This hotel leaves a good after-tastePosted Jun 18, 2013
Pros: Friedly staff, great service, generous size bathroom.
Cons: On top of a cancer hospital, it´s not the ideal location, but once inside, you wouldn´t notice.
Location: On a hillside in Montebello, north-west of the city, overlooking the harbour, the back rooms face straight into the hillside, so get a front room.
Very friendly and helpful staff, great service, included buffet breakfast very good, especially considering how extremely expensive Norwegian prices are. The bathroom is quite big in comparison to other Oslo hotels. The hotel is only a short walk to the Metro station and the suburb is only a ten minute train ride from the city centre, within public transport zone one (cheap ticket). If I make it to Oslo again, I´ll undoubtedly go back to Hotell Montebello.

Too far from townPosted Jun 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
Not suitable for business travel as the hotel is too far from Oslo city centre. Also you are in a hospital so the overall feel of the place is a little depressing. Rooms were clean, bright and quiet though.

Great place...with a couple caveatsPosted Oct 9, 2012
Pros: Very clean room/premises and friendly staff
Cons: The location can be challenging without your own vehicle
Location: Lovely, quiet suburb but limited public transporation options and no stores/restaurants nearby
There is a lot to like about the Radiumhospitalet--if you're aware of the location's shortcomings. My room was extremely clean and had the most comfortable bed I had during my month in Norway. The staff were very friendly and helpful, though there was some miscommunication about WiFi. I thought it was optional for purchase but they told me I couldn't get it at all in my room. Instead they let me borrow the key to a library on the fifth floor, where the staff showed me how to get a 24-hour password. It worked out in the end, but was not as convenient as expected. I booked it for a Friday-Monday stay after looking at the map and deciding it was near enough to walk to things I wanted to see, such as the museums on the Bygdoy peninsula. Upon arrival I discovered it was further out than I'd thought and that area of the city is not really set up for walking. I would have had to take a circuitous route of several miles to get to Bygdoy, for example. Public transportation is expensive and fairly limited at the location. Even with the unlimited travel pass I bought, it was still difficult to get around outside work day hours or off the main metro route. My flight left Oslo early Monday morning, which meant getting a $$$ cab to the nearest Flybus stop (the metro was not running at that hour). Also, there are no stores or restaurants (other than the limited hospital cafe) anywhere near the place. If you've got your own car, not a problem, but on foot it's something to keep in mind.

We loved this Hotel & the receptionist, who we were surprised to discover was from England! We had booked are tickets months before fan's of Morten Harket, but had booked the hotel one week before with a 20% off there full price I was very happy. We have friends in Oslo so be very happy to stay there again. Very colourful that's cought my eye too!

Positive experience.Posted Sep 26, 2012
Pros: Quiet location, good food.
Very quiet hotel. Easy to find (coming from Oslo center on the metro, go over the bridge at the station and down the hill, where it is signposted turn right ) , it's not far. Good breakfasts.
