Can someone please recommend an airport hotel for me next weekend near to or at Oslo airport. I have a night stop with an early morning departure following morning.23 Aug 2015
I’ve stayed in this one personally and it is okay for a single night, also very close to the airport (quick cab ride, 5 mins, 2-3 kms.)

one additional question, for the return, is Oslo a ‘go through the system on landing airport’ or is it possible to get off and wait at the top of the airbridge… (this is for my return)..?24 Aug 2015
You need to go through the system. There are detailed threads on Flyertalk. There is a dedicated non-schengen transfer desk on the LHS of passport control, but it isn’t always manned, so sometimes you need to go through passport control, halfway towards the main terminal to the schengen transfer desk (and hope that it is open, otherwise you’ll need to clear customs right back in the main terminal too – BA doesn’t participate in Fast Track at OSL)
Personally I think Oslo is risky for a back-to-back (you don’t want to arrive behind a couple of Gulf long haul arrivals)
If you’re on one of those BA fares, you’re better off starting from Stavanger or Bergen, where you just get off, wait at the top of the airbridge and get back on again
As for a night in OSL, personally I’d take a train into town and stay there instead – cheaper, nicer, and you’re not reliant on shuttle buses…24 Aug 2015
Just finished this trip.
1. Radisson was great hotel and as for the breakfast… wow.. and all for under £100
2. The return (back to back) Oslo flights. LHR-OSLO flight was 30 minutes late meaning there was no way I could go through the system as there was a good chance I wouldn’t be allowed to go back to airside, due to the timings.
However, British Airways found a solution.. many thanks indeed. All done and completed with absolute ease and no stress at all..7 Sep 2015
