Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Oslo

Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Oslo Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel is Oslo's most prominent hotel in the most literal sense: The 37-story skyscraper is the tallest building in Norway, and towers above the other buildings in the city skyline. With 676 rooms, it's also Norway's largest hotel -- and as part of the luxurious Radisson Blu chain, it's definitely one of the highest profile picks in Oslo. Rooms are contemporary, if chain-like, and Business Class Rooms come with added extras such as free movie channels and Nespresso machines. The ultra-decadent specialty suites have hosted numerous celebrities. The hotel's features, as one might expect for a property of this size, are many -- a restaurant with jaw-dropping views, an airy fitness center, and even a lap pool -- but there is no spa. Some may find the size impersonal, and visitors should expect some serious crowds in the sprawling lobby.

Carlton Oslo Hotel Guldsmeden

Carlton Oslo Hotel Guldsmeden Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 50-room boutique hotel is notable for two reasons: Its charming Norway-meets-Bali decor, and its eco-friendly philosophy. Some rooms and bathrooms are tiny, and the location is a tad removed from the heart of the action (though the Royal Palace and Aker Brygge are within walking distance). But features such as rustic-chic four-poster beds with fur throws; 27-inch iMacs in the rooms in lieu of TVs; a free organic breakfast; and a small spa area with a sauna make this an attractive, intimate option.

Saga Hotel Oslo

Saga Hotel Oslo Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This trendy 47-room boutique hotel is located in the quiet residential neighborhood of Majorstuen, to the northeast of the Royal Palace Park. It re-opened in spring 2011 after major renovations, and now features stylish contemporary decor throughout. The building housing the hotel dates to the late 19th century, and the hotel honors Oslo's past with subtle decor details; for example, historic photographs of the city are emblazoned on the elevator doors and on decorative pillows. Rooms blend traditional elegance with modern style, and come with flat-screen TVs, minibars, and walk-in showers. The hotel offers a free breakfast buffet and cozy lobby bar, but no other features. The location is a bit removed from the heart of the action, and it's worth comparing rates with the slightly more central Carlton Hotel Guldsmeden.

Hotel Continental

Hotel Continental Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Opened in 1900, Hotel Continental is one of Oslo's two grand dames, with its main competitor -- Grand Hotel -- sitting just across the plaza. Stepping into the lobby is to step back in time, which makes this luxurious hotel a great option for history buffs. The rooms in the hotel's original portion have been gorgeously renovated, though the rooms in the hotel's other two sections are a bit more standard, and some are even dowdy. The location can't be beat, with the majority of Oslo's sights just outside the door. Don't forget to admire the hotel's impressive collection of Edvard Munch prints that line the lobby bar.

Scandic Vulkan

Scandic Vulkan Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 149-room Scandic Vulkan is a contemporary, upper-middle-range boutique hotel outside of the city center. Rooms are stylish, with blue walls and bed throws, bright accent pillows, eye-catching graphic art of industrial beams on the walls behind the beds, wood floors, and handy storage cubes. But there few frills -- no real closets (instead, there's a closet rod attached to the wall) and no luggage racks; bathrobes, coffee/tea facilities, and bath products are only available in Superior Extra Rooms and above. The hotel was part of a city revitalization project that also involved a second hotel and the Oslo Food Hall (located right out the front door), and the shops and restaurants of Grunerlokka are within walking distance. An excellent free breakfast, a trendy restaurant and bar, and a small gym are upsides.

Rica Hotel G20

Rica Hotel G20 Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This small, stylish hotel doesn’t have many amenities to offer, but its location just steps from most of Oslo’s main attractions make it a great jumping off point for travelers looking to explore. It’s part of a chain that’s popular across Norway and Sweden (there are eight in Oslo alone), and has a spacious restaurant (open for breakfast only) and a small wine bar with quirky art -- though don’t expect to find much else. Rooms are quite small but they all have floor-to-ceiling windows and clean design. Free bike rentals are a thoughtful touch.

Comfort Hotel Grand Central

Comfort Hotel Grand Central Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This hotel, connected to the city's main train station, is a juxtaposition that works splendidly: The building is from 1854 and was Oslo's first train station, and in spring 2012 opened a stylish, tech-savvy boutique hotel decorated with funky, colorful motifs -- while still preserving some original details. High-tech features abound, and guests can check in on computers in the lobby, use their smartphones as a room key, and store their luggage in a personal lockbox. There's an Italian restaurant on-site, and the hotel's adjacency to the train station makes it as convenient to transportation as it gets (for both within Oslo and outward). Still, it's relatively far from most of the city's sights, and there aren't many features besides the restaurant and a small fitness center.

Clarion Collection Hotel Folketeateret

Clarion Collection Hotel Folketeateret Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This 160-room Clarion Collection Hotel, just a few blocks from Central Station, succeeds at combining style and function. Its rooms and decor are decidedly hip, and most rooms feature a unique wall unit with a TV, mounted mini-fridge, and hidden pull-down desk (though bright red velour and black bathrooms may not appeal to everyone). But there's substance, too: a fitness center, strong free Wi-Fi, an attractive restaurant right next door, free nightly dinner, and one of the city's best free breakfasts. Several of the Signature Suites (each one is different) make for great meeting spaces. Popular attractions are within walking distance, but just barely; other hotels are more centrally located for sightseeing.

Thon Hotel Oslo Panorama

Thon Hotel Oslo Panorama Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This 118-room mid-range chain hotel doesn't have many features to offer, but apartment-style rooms, a friendly, helpful staff, and a convenient-enough location make it a good option for travelers who just need a home base. While not in the heart of the action, Thon Panorama is right near the waterfront (called Oslofjord), the eye-catching Oslo Opera House, and Oslo Central Station; it's also a reasonable walk to most of the city's main sights. Not much makes this hotel particularly business-friendly, but the two spacious, eclectic penthouse suites -- both with gorgeous views -- can be used as meeting spaces. Despite its name, only some rooms have views worth writing home about (many face into a courtyard).
