Somehow Grand Hotel Oslo is able to give you a feeling of being their special guest, even when passing through as an ordinary business traveler. In spite of its classic façade and lobby, Grand offers all the modern facilities you need. My room – somewhat upgraded – was spacious, quiet and with an excellent bed. The breakfast at Grand Café...

I stayed here with my partner for a long weekend a couple of weeks ago. We had seen a few negative comments on Trip Advisor about the general state of repair of the hotel which had made us a little wary of staying, but we needn't have worried! We had a standard room on the third floor which was a... More

A fabulously located hotel that has been host to many well known figures of culture, art and government. The rooms are pleasant, and the general feel of the hotel is grand. The location is really the bragging point regarding this hotel near all tourist attractions. The spa is a real nice touch offering rooftop views and relaxation

i stay here a couple of times a year probably, on business trips to Oslo. this is a typical "grand old lady" hotel of a long gone era. Right on the Karl Johan street, across Parliament.

I loved this hotel - it was refreshing to stay somewhere that hasn't been modernised (i.e. glass, metal and no character). It was great to step back in time, it felt like I was staying in the Grand Budapest Hotel or some similar type of hotel in the 1960s. The hotel oozed charm and character. It was also very quiet...

I have stayed at this hotel several times for business. It is a traditional hotel in a good location on Karl Johans gate a short walk from Aker Brygge. Being older, the quality and size of the rooms can be variable, but I enjoy the character of the building and breakfast in the Grand Cafe. My tip for breakfast is... More

The rom was poor for a Family by four person.The room was not enabled for a family of four. The hotel adjournment ekstras beds in a room for two people. One bed was a folding cot where my children could not sleep. A bad night for one of the children is a bad night for the whole family.

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.
