Very dated rooms but breakfast was decent
Posted Sep 19, 2016 on Hotels
When we checked in we were given a room on the 4th floor facing the front of the hotel, the room was very, very dated, the bathtub was tiny, hairdryer was decades old, furniture was bamboo/wicker and kitted out for a single person not a couple (one set of glasses and towels). I asked reception for a new room, which was given to me almost straight away (I got the impression that they get this alot) and thenew room was still very dated but much better in comparison, still not what you would expect of a Radisson Blu and not quite worth the money but Norway is an expensive country! The room was quite hot and so we had to leave the air con on which was very loud and got in the way of a good night's sleep. The shower was okay but not very hot, and the towels were minuscule! Bed was comfy though, although we only had one extra pillow in the 'wardrobe'. No tea/coffee facilities in the room and we had to pull the bed out to plug in the lamps which had been left unplugged. TV was nice and big and had a USB port so we could watch our own things. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was good, a nice selection of food and very well thought out, although the same was provided each morning. Come dinner time we decided the food was too expensive (340 NOK for a burger!) so got food at the supermarket across the road (they cooked some frozen pizzas for us!) and asked for plates and cutlery from the hotel, which they happily provided. All in all a good hotel with room for improvement!
