4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here for 3 nights last week with my husband and 11 year old daughter. We found the staff to be extremely pleasant and helpful. We stayed in a superior family room which was updated, and it was nice to have some closet space which seems to be rare. I do agree with some of the reviewers who said... More

We stayed here in a junior suite at our wedding day, and it was a great experience. We had a beautiful suite facing the Parliament and Karl Johan street. The staff was very attentive, the service was great and we got roses in the room in the evening. It was also really nice with champagne and strawberries when we got... More

From start to finish this hotel was great. The reception staff were extremely helpful as was the concierge. The rooms were nicely furnished; new but completely timeless. The gym was also well equipped, however I didn't get a chance to check out the spa area. Breakfast was great. There was plenty of variety and I really enjoyed the DIY muesli... More

This is a fabulous old building brimming with history. It's perfectly located between the Royal Palace and Central Station, and opposite the Parliament building on Oslo's main street. The superior family room we were given was adequate, but perhaps a little dated, and being in the centre of the hotel, had no view and was difficult to keep cool with... More

other than its location and attentive doorman, I have a very poor experience at this 5 star hotel. I stayed a night with my hubby and 2 other friends on 11th Feb 2015 and we were given rooms on the 7th floor. I was surprised there was no hot water and thought I must have overlooked some hidden switch somewhere.... More

Breakfast excellent, fantastic location. scaffolding outside our window, noise from bars on side street, noisy demonstration in front of parliament, one lift not working, no doorman at entrance, water did not drain from bath, internet very good, no safe, nice view from roof bar. Ice available in corridor, tea/coffee in room.

Was excited to stay here after seeing all the awards and titles, as Norway's leading hotel, but was pretty disappointed. First, rooms: we had asked for a twin, not sure whether the rooms don't have a proper twin designation, but we were given a room right at the end of the corridor on the 7th floor, in a kind of...

Had a nice stay on a business trip. Mixture of old world. 1990s roof bar, great NYC style breakfast bar area. Corridors had a1960's vibe and the rooms were 2000's - overall it was good clean and nice and the rooms were well appointed, clean,. comfortable and warm. It has great staff. It is in a great location. Book it... More

Stayed here for 3 nights for a special occasion in one of the junior suites. The room seemed to have been recently renovated and faced the main road - despite that there really was minimal noise. Everything was very clean and the decor has been re-done in good taste. What little service we experienced on check in/out and during breakfast... More

I enjoyed my stay for 6 nights at the Grand Hotel in late January-early February. I was booked into a standard room, which was somewhat small (only about one foot between side of the bed and the chairs by the window), but the bathroom was spacious, closet and storage space plentiful (much more so than many other Oslo hotels), and...
