I got a night stay with spa as a gift for my husband. He made sure when he booked the room that it should be very quiet since I needed a good night sleep. I got a room right next to a club/concert hall and did not sleep at all that night. When I commented on it I could barely... More

Just returned from 5 nights at the Grand Hotel. Had a great stay, the staff were lovely, breakfast great, pool wonderful, location could not be better. The only thing that was slightly disappointing was the room which was ok and would have been good for two of us but not huge for a family but that was our choice for... More

We must have been unlucky, but we had a series of poor service experiences at the Grand Hotel that were only corrected after some serious intervention.When we arrived after a long drive, we wanted to get our car parked, but were told that the hotel does not offer valet parking, but we should park our car ourselves in the hotel...

This is as near as Oslo gets to real service. The room was comfortable and spacious with a reasonably equipped bathroom. However the whole place is somewhat impersonal certainly in comparison with London or even Paris. Is it a personality thing? There is a bar on the roof with a wonderful view. The prices are ridiculous but it does not... More

This is not just another hotel, it is the hotel in Oslo. Built in 1874 it has seen the capital of Norway going through changes, and the cafe were you eat your breakfast, Grand cafe, has been the hotbed for norwegian culture life through ages. The cafe was the tight spot for personalities like dramatist Henrik Ibsen, the explorer Fridtjof... More

We had a marvelous stay at the Grand. We were lucky to have a suite on the second floor, down the hall from the Nobel Peace Suite. If you can afford to stay in one of these suites, you will not be disappointed. Two balconies overlooking the central square in Oslo. Luxurious bathroom and large room with living area. Exquisitely... More

Stayed one Friday night. The rooms are nice, but nothing special. Excellent beds, so slept well. After the party sounds had stopped. Too poor sound protection to the outside. The breakfast was delicious.

I took my wife here for a surprise-romantic-weekend. Check in was quick and smooth. Nice room, GREAT bed with fantastic bedding and a lovely bathroom with an actual bath in stead of just a shower. The only downside was breakfast. I've never experienced having to wait in a queue to get into a hotel restaurant. If this is an ongoing... More

I was visiting Oslo for business and had actually not looked up the hotel in beforehand so didn't have very high expectations. On my way there the cab driver claimed it to be the second best hotel of Oslo. The hotel is located at the very heart of Oslo, right next to Stortinget and you can see the Royal Palace... More

We spent 6 nights at The Grand as a family with grandparents and two boys ages 8 and 11. We had one deluxe room and one superior room both of which had been renovated. The rooms were fine, comfortable beds, wooden floors, nice TVs and enough space for us. The hotel is located in a perfect location completely central to... More
