Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Roomswith comfortable beds and flat-screen TVs
  • Business Class rooms come with slippers, robes, and free premium channels
  • Lovely modern bathrooms with walk-in showers; some have soaking tubs
  • Large indoor pool, whirlpool, and sauna
  • Spa offering full range of treatments
  • Healthy buffet food at Harlequin
  • Excellent gourmet cuisine at EatRoyal Restaurant
  • 5 meeting rooms with audio-visual equipment; catering service; and on-site meeting coordinator
  • Family-friendly, with connecting rooms, kids' menus, Nintendo Wii lounge, and play room
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Room decor is bland
  • Some rooms face the atrium and aren't as private

Bottom Line

This 204-room, business-oriented hotel lives up to the Radisson Blu chain's reputation, delivering upscale rooms with nice amenities, lots of meeting space, and extensive features -- the large indoor pool, in particular, is a rarity for Norway (it's the only hotel pool in Stavanger). Harlequin serves buffet food with a healthy focus in a bright atrium setting, and the excellent Eatroyal Restaurant & Bar, serving gourmet Norwegian cuisine using local ingredients, deserves to be a destination in its own right. Decor is relatively bland, however, for a luxry hotel; fresher, trendier decor can be found at the nearby Comfort Hotel Square, but this is still one of Stavanger's best options.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the city center, within walking distance of Old Town

Radisson Blu Royal Hotel isn't right in the heart of the city center, but it's still within walking distance of popular sights.

Stavanger is a small city with charm to spare. Old Town is one of the most appealing historic areas in all of Norway, with cobbled streets, quaint white wooden houses, and flowering gardens. The city also has the advantage of being close to both beaches and skiing: In fact, it's possible to drive to the slopes in the morning and hit up the beaches in the afternoon. Boat trips to the Lysefjord depart right from the harbor; though the Lysefjord is not as famous as the Sognefjord, it's still very beautiful and access is more convenient. For cultural attractions, Stavanger offers several interesting museums, including the Canning Museum and the Petroleum Museum. (Stavanger is a hub for businesspeople in the oil industry.)

  • 7-minute walk to departure point on the harbor for Lysefjord cruises
  • 7-minute walk to Old Town (Gamle Stavanger)
  • 8-minute walk to the Norwegian Canning Museum
  • 12-minute walk to the Norwegian Petroleum Museum
  • 8-minute drive to Godalen Beach
  • 24-minute drive to Sola Beach
  • 55-minute drive to Brusand Beach (considered Norway's best beach)
  • 1-hour-30-minute drive to skiing at Sirdal

 Bottom Line

This 204-room, business-oriented hotel lives up to the Radisson Blu chain's reputation, delivering upscale rooms with nice amenities, lots of meeting space, and extensive features -- the large indoor pool, in particular, is a rarity for Norway (it's the only hotel pool in Stavanger). Harlequin serves buffet food with a healthy focus in a bright atrium setting, and the excellent Eatroyal Restaurant & Bar, serving gourmet Norwegian cuisine using local ingredients, deserves to be a destination in its own right.
