Very nice hotel. Great location. Room was large and quiet overlooking the inner section. Bed was large and very comfortable. Break fast was adequate, one morning there was very little left and the other morning was like a bun fight. Staff were very pleasant, room kept clean. Swimming pool was nice except for the heavy petting that went on on... More

We didn't expect to get a superior room when we did a 3 nights booking via booking.com but we would have expected an adequate family room (2 adults + 2 children) corresponding to the 5 star quality. What we got, tough, was really disappointing: a small room with low ceiling, hardly space to store your luggage and in front a... More

I stayed at the Grand for 2 nights during my recent business trip. This was my 2nd visit in 2 years and must admit that it was better than last time, or atleast much better than waht i was expecting. The pros: - the concierge and the check in team seemed a lost more friendlier and warm this time around.... More

Grand Hotel is a old traditional hotel which offers good food, great service and nice rooms. One of the best in oslo, located right in the centre of the main street. It's classy, and always enough staff. You'll enjoy the bars and the Grand Café which offers some superb food, and high sandwiches at lunch, and always great deserts and... More

Big room? Yes. Comfy bed? Yes. Well looked after? No. In need of an overhaul? Yes. The Grand is in no ways grand. It is tired and needs sorting. Staff are great, really good. The hotel though is worn-out. No way is this a Grand Hotel in the classic 'Grand' style unless it is 'Grand' in a fading old style... More

We stayed at the Grand Hotel for the first part of the Easter Weekend as as a party of 4 in a Corner Suite and adjoining Junior Suite.

We loved the Grand. It was steeped in history and very classy. The room (family suite) suited us perfectly with comfortable beds and a lovely bathroom. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, making sure we had everything possible to make our stay comfortable. The car parking (underground and linked to hotel) was an additional extra but given that we... More

My family (2 adults and 2 young teens) stayed in this hotel and we just loved it! The staff were courteous and helpful. Their family room is big and comfortable.

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. Excellent staff, and Erik at Reception deserves a medal for always going the extra mile. No charge for making use of spa facilities (even though I never had time to visit!). Great breakfasts in the beautiful breakfast room apparently frequented years ago by the famous author Ibsen. Very centrally situated and we... More

Stayed here for three nights during February. The hotel has a very classical feel with nice paintings and classical touches everywhere. The room was ok and the breakfast wonderful. Reaching it from the airport is very easy due to the airport-city train that stops in the central station, a 20 minute walk from the hotel. Grand Hotel is situated right... More
