Had heard that Grims Grenka was some kind of a Boutique hotel in Oslo. I am a bit disappointed because the x factor was missing. Garbage box not emptied from the previous guest.. Delicious breakfast though.

A family of 4 (with kids 7 and 10), we spent 3 nights at this hotel in late December/early January. Like many other reviewers, we found a lot to like about the hotel.

Very fancy and modern hotel, and nice and friendly staff! The room was amazing+ great breakfast. I think this is my new favorite hotel in Oslo, definitly coming back. Great location, near 'everything' in the city. Its a very fashionable hotel, but without the uptight athmosphere.

While this hotel gives a good first impression, the room was a disappointment as opposed to what the online information and pictures suggested. The room looked like a studio for adult videos. Everything else was nice, but the room obviously matters. Cool light controls and motorized bed.

This was our first trip to Oslo and we were quite excited going just two weeks before Christmas. The hotel is easy to find just a 10 minute walk from the central station. The entrance is accessed via steps into a revolving glass doorway. The steps make it difficult lifting your luggage and no doorman to help, we did not... More

Me and my fiancée love this hotel. It's dark and comfortable, and with just the right touches of fancy details. The personell at the reception and in the restaurant is both very forthcoming. The breakfast includes all the things you could want.

We decided to book our stay here based on LP recommendation as a top choice. We arrived on a Sunday at 3 pm, and there was absolutely no one there to help us with our luggage.

I have lived a quite a lot of hotel in the capitol of Norway. This is now the only hotel I use. The hotel is located in the center of Oslo.

We had a good stay hadn't it been for very bad cleaning of the room. Seems that only thing done, was the bed, and trashcans. We didn't get offered a new room, but asked to clean it ourselves. Which we thought was very strange.
