We stayed 3 nights in the hotel and are able to recommend it totally. From the moment we entered the reception area until the day we departed we were cordially treated by friendly, courteous and helpful staff. The hotel was very clean in the restaurants, in the arrival area and also in our bedroom. The daily breakfast choice is fresh... More

I like being a guest in this hotel. very friendly and they make you feel welcome. ask for the refurbished rooms since the hotel is partly renovated. the bar also is visited by external people due to the great atmosphere.

I was looking forward to staying three nights in this Oslo hotel and enjoying restaurant. Yes, the location is great. Short walk from the flytoget airport train. Pleasant, if small lobby and check in. I asked if my room was renovated and was told all renovations were complete. But during the 18 hours I was at the hotel, I saw... More

Dear "csmith190". Thank you for your nice words regarding location, design, service and food. However I am sorry about the problems you met regarding adjustment for disability. Unfortunately we had no information about your special needs before your arrival, and therefore our possibilities for adjustments were reduced. We do have specially designed rooms for disabled, and as I understand different... More

We stayed at the Continental for two nights at the end of our trip. Our room was beautiful, the view of the harbor was exceptional. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I will say the bed was not too comfortable and the breakfast not as good as others in the City.

The very mixed reviews at the time (late 2013) of my research for this trip was confusing, until I finally figured out that it depended on whether the reviewer had stayed in the renovated or un-renovated part of the hotel. I booked a renovated deluxe king room (far from the most expensive). It was enormous and comfortable and, for around... More

We booked the Hotel Continental following Trip Advisor recommendations and we can only concur with all the good comments made about this fine grand dame of Oslo. We discovered that it is very centrally situated. Next to tram and busways and just across the road from the underground and rail station. The latter is a stop for the Flytoget train... More

We loved our stay! Service was excellent. Not only at the hotel but also at the hotel's restaurant, Theatercafeen. We got one of the newly renovated rooms and it was beautiful and elegant with a good sized balcony overlooking the National Theater. We were a little concerned about noise since the hotel is located right in the middle of the... More

Stayed at the hotel during Oslo Maraton. Due to lack of available rooms, we, me and my wife, were offered what was told to be a single room, with a only a queen size bed. We were anything but disappointed! The room was better than expected, the bed turned out to be very good to sore and aching legs. The... More

I usually do not post reviews but my experience here was very disappointing. Let me start by saying that this is a classic hotel located in an exceptionally convenient area for touring Oslo. It has great potential for a wonderful stay. However, I was extremely disappointed in the hotel's lack of customer service. Having read many reviews about problems with... More
