I wanted to try the famous Cafe and the reception from first to last was rude, bordering on hostile. The waiter informed me that you cannot order just coffee before noon. I asked him if I could see the lunch menu and he hemmed and hawed and pretended as if it didn't exist. A manager asked if he could help... More

We arrived late at night (11pm) after a long day doing the Norway in a Nutshell trip from Bergen. Check in was faultless and we were upgraded to a Junior Suite which was just amazing. Throughout our stay the staff were superb, without exception. Well done. Breakfast was a feast. Easy to use safe in the room. There is a... More

The first time you go anywhere is special. My first time in Oslo included a stay at the Grand Hotel. I was greeted with "We're so sorry, but all we have is the female room". I am familiar with gender when it comes to languages, but a female room!? When I got there I found the only thing different about... More

I stayed here for two weeks and got to see a lot. The Rolling Stones, and many other big names stayed here while I was here. This is a "grand" hotel, centrally located, but the wear shows in the hallways and in the rooms. Lots of tall paintings and chandeliers throughout the Grand, which brings you back to times of...

The plusses: great breakfast, central location, old world grandeur The minuses: dark interior, depressing 'view', maze-like corridors, poor service at times, no safe in room It all depends on your preferences. Some don't care about the view, and give preference to location or food. In my case, I found the view from the room depressing: overlooking an internal space surrounded... More

As part of our Pre-Baltic cruise , we spent 5 days in Norway including a night in Oslo. Our hotel was centrally located within walking distance of excellent restaurants and cafés. The room was clean and comfortable. Buffet breakfast was excellent . Highly recommended.?

Perfect location right in the city center, on the main shopping boulevard in Olso - Karl Johans Gate. The parliament house is right in front, lot of eat-out options close by. The hotel rooms are based on mediaval architecture, helpful staff and nice breakfast. Stayed there for 2 night and simply enjoyed my stay.

We bought a 3 night package on Luxury Link which included a Jr. Suite, breakfast, chilled sparkling wine, fresh flowers and chocolates on arrival, and 10% off spa services. The room was huge, spotless and beautifully-furnished, a sofa, chairs and bar in the living room area and a separate bedroom area. Both had large tvs and french doors which opened... More

My husband and I enjoyed a romantic three day break in Oslo and had a wonderful time staying at the Grand Hotel. I'd recommend filling up in the morning with the tasty buffet breakfast - you won't need to eat again for the rest of the day! Staff were very friendly and had a good level of English. Pool was...
