When you arrive in Oslo, you realise that none of the big hotel players are there - no Hilton, no Marriott, no Accor - except the home grown one, Raddisson. They have two big towers and some others around. Maybe it's the lack of competition, but this hotel doesn't cut it. The restaurant is amazingly expensive and, not surprisingly, empty every night we were there. And I mean empty. I had asked for a high room so was given one on the third floor. I asked for a higher room and was told that the one I had been given was 'refurbished' and I 'would not like a room that was not refurbished'. Probably true, since the refurbished room was very basic and very small. The staff though were great, just as well since they had to deal with a lot of complaints. There is a small lobby coffee shop which is good, although still very expensive. The bar on the 18th floor has a great view, but the rain was coming in (yes, I kid you not) and you cannot eat up there, only drink. I like Oslo, the new opera house is terrific, but the hotels...
