Radisson Blu Scandinavia
Located in the heart of Oslo
, the Radisson Blu Scandinavia is within walking distance of most major attractions, including the Royal Palace, the National Theater, and the National Gallery, as well as smaller points of interest like the Ibsen museum. But guests who stay at this sleek glass tower may find it difficult to leave thanks to the hotel’s large swimming pool and sauna and two restaurants, as well as the shopping arcade that sits beneath the property. The 499 rooms are warmly decorated with patterned carpets, colorful artwork, and Scandi-mod furnishings, plus free high-speed Internet and LCD TVs, and public areas have an open, airy feel. After a day spent seeing the sights, head back to the hotel for akevitt
