This hotel firstly lacks staff, one person runs reception and everything it is just a joke. Rooms are dark and have a lighting system that is impossible to understand. On arrival we were told it was holidays and the restaurant was closed. It did open for breakfast which was acceptable. Oslo is not a city that welcomes tourists. Last orders... More

Stayed there for a weekend. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was very nice! Good breakfast with nice selection of hot and cold food. I did not have dinner at the restaurant, but it looked like a nice place.

First time in Oslo I wanted to be close to the center but didn't want to stay in the center or in a big hotel. This was perfect! Walking distance to the opera, the cathedral and the national gallery but it is located in a nice quite street. Staff was SUPER nice and helpful. Rooms as small but that is... More

I booked this hotel after finding a deal online. I was looking for a hotel in the city centre that was close to some of the attractions of Oslo (as we're were only here for the weekend). Grims Grenka is a very modern hotel, with a very stylish interior. The rooms are very clean and again, very stylish. My only... More

When we arrived, we were really disappointed by the view of the room -- we could only see the inside of the building, and people with a room at the same level could see in ours. We asked the reception staff for another room, but the hotel was "full". When we got to bed, we realized the AC was broken... More

We stayed at Grims Grenka 3 nights in August 2014. The view in the first room we had was very disappointing -- we only could see the inside of the building, and people with a room at the same level could see in ours. We asked the reception for another room but the hotel was "full". When we got to... More

All the hotel staff with whom we came into contact were incredibly helpful, friendly and efficient; I would score them 11/10! However, I do not feel the web description is truly accurate and for me the rooms were too dark and the style was not to my taste. A certain amount of continuing maintenance / service was clearly needed. A... More

Me and a friend stayed here on a weekend break. The hotel is typical Scandinavian style, minimalistic, modern, spot lights and wooden floors etc. The bathroom was a glass cube within the bedroom which we thought was novel but being British we used the loos serving the roof top terrace. Breakfast was a very nice buffet assortment of hot and... More

Reception staff are unfriendly, screwed up my dinner reservation, and always seemed bothered to help. The room I stayed in had 8 broken lightbulbs so the room was very dark. Walls need to be repainted.

Our winter room may have been ok for a single, but was poorly planned for a couple. Bathroom painfully small with high step over. Night stand on only one side of bed. TV sticking awkwardly from wall, making access from far side of bed nearly impossible. Carpet quite dirty, and strange stains on bedding under sheets. Dark and gloomy even... More
