This is an excellent hotel, with some of the best beds I have ever stayed in (Jensen). However, the best event was to meet the absolutely marvellous gentleman handling the breakfast buffet - charming but not intrusive, and you could see that he made all guests feel very much at home.

The hotel is alltogether really nice. Great rooms and very nice design of the hotel all together. I recommend the standard room, best colours. One of the best presentations of the breakfast I have seen in all my travels.

My 3rd visit to Grims Grenke and always feel extremely comfortable there and love the Scandinavian Snow Forest room. Very smart and amazing breakfast. Centrally located off Karl Johan Gata in a quiet street.

Subtly sexy! My wife and I stayed 3 nights. The room was a nice size for a European hotel, the bed amazingly comfortable, and there was plenty of storage space. If you are shy, beware: it is easy to peek into the bathroom through the “windows”! Extremely generous breakfast with world-class lox, tasty pancakes & jams, and loads of other... More

Grims Grenka is a secret in Oslo, also in the winter period. Excellent service, a real good bar man and the best breakfast in town.The spring will make it even better with the roofgarden. Lovely place to share a jolter or two... We will gladly come back.

We spent 3 night at the hotel for NYE. The hotel is very centrally located. It has clean rooms. Helpful and friendly staff. Very nice breakfast. No gym at the hotel. A typical 4 star hotel, nothing extraordinary, but for the price (being in OSLO) a good deal.

We stayed here towards the end of November 2014. We had a two night stay in Oslo, which we enjoyed immensely. Check-in and service was all fine, if not above average. The room itself, perhaps a little on the dark side (nb. note, a significant number of rooms here have no outward facing windows/natural light) was very clean, modern and... More

Good location, my room was comfortable (great bed with nice bedding, and cool lighting...). Service is good, and the breakfast buffet is pretty awesome. The ONLY think missing was a bar of soap in the bathroom ...there was "only" shower gel (and I prefer soap).

You find this hotel with a rather fanciful name in the centre of Oslo, a five minute walk from the central station and close to shopping restaurants and whatever your heart might desire. The hotel is a modern boutique hotel with nice and well appointed rooms. The reception is friendly and helpful. I was 30 min early for breakfast, but... More
