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

We loved this hotel. Very easy to reach - you'll see it on the right when you exit the National Theatre train station. And very accessible to good restaurants on the wharf, the Royal Palace and many other landmarks. Many rooms have been recently been renovated and they are lovely. Large, well appointed. It was the service though that was... More

I am staying at the Hotel Continental. Very close to the waterfront. Good pubs and restaurants nearby. Room is excellent and bed is comfortable. Pricey but everything here is. I would definitely stay here again. We had business meetings and conference area was small but very comfortable.

We stayed three nights and absolutely loved everything about this hotel. Our room was spacious and even had a balcony that looked out over the National Theater. The bathroom was very large and filled with wonderful amenities. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful, advising us of activities and restaurants, and arranging both for us. The breakfast... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely old hotel next door to the National Theatre. It is ideally located opposite the train station, especially if one is taking the train from the airport. The hotel is clean, quiet and very comfortable. The staff are very helpful and friendly. I strongly recommend you dine in the lovely old Art Deco... More
