We stayed here during a trip last week. Outside our window the second night was a crane working, apparently on the ventilation system, until 3 in the morning. Unless this was an actual emergency, there is no reason anyone should be working this late outside a hotel window. We got absolutely no sleep due to an early flight out the... More

We stayed at the Grand for a holiday weekend in Oslo, and it was grand. It has a great location right on the main square on Karl Johanns gata, about ten minutes walk from the train station. There's an authentically grand reception, staffed by really charming staff. Our room, which we paid a ridiculously low rate for on a secret... More

I booked this hotel in January for a 2 night stay in September. This is only my second trip to Europe and its difficult to plan everything when we use a different date and calendar format. I booked what I thought would be a really nice hotel where we could stay 2 nights. After booking I realized my flights where... More

Dear Mickey M, Thank you for your feedback here on Tripadvisor. As we don't have details about how you booked the hotel room it is difficult to provide a very specific answer. It is unfortunate that this situation took place during your extensive travel to Europe. However, we have to inform that we are unable to refund on prepaid reservation.... More

Excellent location on Karl Johan Gate. Friendly, professional and helpful staff. Lovely room with Tea/Coffee making facilities. Breakfast was fantastic with a great selection to choose from. Within walking distance of all the main attractions and only 5 minute walk from National Theatre where you can get the express train to the Airport

I checked into this beautiful hotel last night and paid extra to get a "special" drool overlooking the square. Indeed a beautiful room. However if you want a good nights sleep this is not the hotel for you,at least whilst they are renovating lifts! At 10pm I called reception due to "drilling noises" . I asked what this was and...

My daughter and I stayed here for my 45th birthday on the weekend of the 28 Feb. We were informed by hotel staff upon our very late check in that the hotel was in the middle of changing ownership.

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

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
