Yes..a mini bar beer for about 2,5 dollar The restaurant is luxurious, rooms are good, free coffee beans provided, restaurant is good, breakfast is also good and plenty, but a mini bar that isn't a ripoff... A first for me. An example for all hotels. People will buy a lot more if you don't charge them ridiculous prices.

Radisson Blu is not bad a hotel to relax. Staff are willing to offer assistance. Food is ok and other services except the restricted wifi. I think downloading can be included in the internet service. Thank you
