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

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.
Super nice but very farPosted Sep 18, 2012 on Hotels.com
Ok, I didn't realize how far this hotel really is from downtown Oslo. It is very nice, super modern ( and if you don't mind being around people who are sick and receiving treatment), it is great. However, it is a really long way, and the directions to the public transportation were poor. We just started taking taxis, which is extremely expensive in Oslo. For the amount of money you might spend on taxis back and forth, you are probably better off staying downtown.
Fab hotel for holidaymakers!Posted Aug 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
brilliant breakfast. vclean bedroom vmodern and vsafe and the most comfortable beds. downside is paying for films but realistically in comparison to prices in the rest of Oslo paying E3 for recent released films isn't t bad! the staff are fantastic and have terrific English and are incredibly helpful from check in to check out!! hot drinks and fresh fruit free all day which is a lovely extra! Location of the hotel is very handy- ONCE you find it for any travellers using public transport get the 6 T-Bane(train) to montebello from the center and it is sign posted from there a 5 min walk tops! only 10 mins on the t-bane to central and the trains are v regular- 10 min wait max! in a very safe area Ideal if you are travelling for leisure and intend on sightseeing as there isn't many extra facilities in the hotel but oslo has so much to offer having a safe comfortable modern hotel available to you makes such a difference it is not a spa hotel or resort but it serves you with a private contemporary comfortable bedroom with large bathroom big shower toiletries big wardrobes plenty of lights and lamps comfortable big beds good black out curtains flat screen tv and a fridge which is great in their hot summers for drinks! Sincere thanks to all the staff!
