Now we were informed that the hotel is under renovation, having stayed here several times before, as this used to be good. Imagine my surprise when a jackhammer started in the adjacent room on a weekend afternoon. Surprise number two came when reception informed me that they would stop within 15 minutes. An hour later the builders were still there...... More

Now before anyone goes.... why so happy when there were renos going on (firstly... i was never there when the actual... More

Leading Hotels of the World...really? Very disappointing. Currently undergoing renovation. No gym. Got a tiny court facing room. Worn towels and bedding. Feels like a ghost town- guess others got the message before me. Only saving grace was the breakfast which was decent. Won't be returning.

Hotel's location is very good, just a few hundred meters from the central station. All the staff were very friendly. The room was large and clean. The breakfast was good. Overall the experience and the feeling at the hotel was luxurious!

I do not know how the criteria Stars are awarded in Norway but this hotel is definitely not up to the 5 stars advertised. Lack of heating in the room (heating blowing noisy added extra) wooden double glazed windows but not soundproof, (impossible to sleep before 3am held account of the situation of the hotel) and especially not waterproof in...

I recently stayed here on business, the Grand is under renovation, so I expected some issues. However the room was too hot, the hot water though took quite some time to run hot, the breakfast seems to have less choice now, and for some reason my mini bar was emptied without informing me, so in the middle of the night...

We where there from Monday to Thursday. We got a nice big room, the bathroom was small, but had just been refurbished. Excellent breakfast. Good location. The cleaning of the room could have been better.
