I found the facilities at the Radisson Blue Caledonien Hotel to be quite satisfactory. Parking is easy, although I chose to use the Parko multi-storey car park, as stay is unlimited and you pay as you go. In the car park in front of the hotel there was a mandatory check-out after 48 hours. The food remains excellent at this...

If you stay here, request the "new" front section. Rear section is extremely outdated, ice machines broken and heat does not work well. Breakfast is pretty good. Location is excellent, many nice restaurants close by.
