Excellent location. Our renovated room was spacious (by European standards) and nicely done with high quality amenities. Great selection at breakfast and helpful staff. I left my jacket behind and upon calling the concierge was able to locate the jacket and mail it to our next destination. Renovation was in the process of being completed so the elevator only stopped... More

A lovely hotel in walking distance to nearly all tourist sites. Renovation is in progress but was isolated so well that you did not hear or notice anything. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff is extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel Continental Oslo is located right in the main street in the middle of everything. We stayed a week in this hotel and had a double de luxe. Very comfortable real king bed. The room was spacious, comfortable and the temperature was perfect. I didn't have to fiddle with the aircon controls as I do in many places. Exceptionally good... More

Great location and close to city centre. Staff are very helpful and the concierge desk is one of the best we have encountered. Breakfast was great and the room very comfortable. Would certainly recommend hotel to anyone planning a visit to Oslo

We spent only 2 nights at the Continental last summer and our stay was very nice. The hotel is very well located, close to many restaurants, shops and landmarks. You are also a 5-10 minute walk to the beautiful Pier, crowded of people from afternoon to evening, where you'll find many bars with music and restaurants too, very nice!! This... More

We stayed here on two separate occasions. It is conveniently located near the harbor and the fantastic City Hall. And the hotel just minutes away from the National Theater Train Station. Since there was no A/C and our room was getting warm and stuffy, we opened the window. But there are no screens so be prepared to swat some flies.... More

My daughter and I stayed at Hotel Continental earlier this week and had a wonderful time. The location is absolutely perfect - a 2 min walk to the Palace., the main Street and the harbour as well as being across the road from Nationaltheatret station which is a stop for the airport train. The staff were all very helpful, friendly... More

Our group of six hit the Hotel Continental in June 2014. The negatives first: First, I think in central Oslo it is wise if you adjust two settings mentally -- a "five star" hotel would be a "three star" hotel in Asia; second, these old world hotels are extremely expensive. Finally, the Hotel Continental is undergoing renovations. We had renovation... More

I stayed here for two nights on a business trip and while I found the hotel much nicer (modern, cleaner) than the Grand, it was less desirable. They had better TV, nicer lobby bar, quieter rooms, newer (refreshed) rooms--but much smaller, no spa, smaller workout room, and a very snooty staff. Not personable at all. Other than the rooms being... More

Due to a plain that was horribly late, I arrived in the middle of a cold Oslo night. My bad mood quickly improved when I was met by a smiling and efficient staff at the front desk of Hotel Continental. The single room I was given, was both modern and delicate. More importantly, it was easy to access the free... More
