Radisson RED has opened Radisson RED Oslo Økern, a sustainable design hotel in Oslo, Norway.
Claimed to be music, art, design, and fashion inspired, the hotel offers a rooftop experience complete with a bar, outdoor terrace, and city views.
Located in the new sustainable community of Økern Portal, it is only 15 minutes from Oslo Central Station.
Radisson RED Oslo Økern forms a part of a large sustainability-focused business area, which includes a rooftop garden where herbs and vegetables are grown and used by the hotel and restaurants in the wider area.
It is certified with an excellent rating from BREEAM.
The hotel features 204 guest rooms with artistic details depicting a playful twist on the conventional through its design concept.
Radisson RED Oslo Økern has an interesting sculpture that takes the form of a tiger, recognising the city’s nickname Tigerstaden (Tiger City), which was said to be coined by poet Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson.
The statue is also placed on the rooftop terrace as well as outside the main entrance.
The 12th floor features RED Rooftop bar, and outdoor terrace, where guests can enjoy panoramic view of Oslo.
The hotel has 13 meeting rooms, with the largest room having a capacity to accommodate 120 guests.
Radisson Hotel Group area senior vice president for Northern & Western Europe Tom Flanagan Karttunen said: “This is the perfect location for our second Radisson RED property in Norway, following the opening of Radisson RED Oslo Airport earlier this year. Radisson RED’s creative approach works in harmony with Økern Portal’s green spaces and sustainable initiatives, and offers the best city views from its rooftop bar and outdoor terrace.”
Radisson RED Oslo Økern general manager Jørgen Holte said: “I am proud to open this exciting new hotel concept in Oslo. We know sustainability is a key focus for travellers today and we are always looking to develop innovative hotel experiences. Radisson RED Oslo Økern combines sustainability initiatives, Radisson Hotel Group’s Yes I Can! Service, and Radisson RED’s playful twist on the conventional, which we are sure guests will enjoy.”
To ensure guest safety, the hotel is implementing the cleanliness and disinfection protocols programme, called Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol, which has been developed in partnership with SGS, an inspection, verification, testing and certification company.
