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

Stayed for three wonderful nights. The hotel is perfectly located and the staff is amazing. The rooms are spacious, quiet and beautifully decorated. Dont miss the breakfast. Be sure to splurge at the Theatercafeen restaurant attached to the hotel. Rated by the New York Times as one of the world's ten most celebrated and I can confirm it is superb!... More

Given the rating of the hotel on TA I am rather surprised and disappointed to be writing this review. Let us start with the basics. I wasn't in a cheap room by any means but even in a cheap room this would be unacceptable for a five star. The rooms on one side of the hotel are right next to... More

If you are looking for modernism and minimalist Nordic design, this place is not for you. But if you want old fashioned quality hospitality and surroundings in downtown Oslo, Continental could be just the place. I especially like the ambience in the ground floor lobby café where it feels like time has been standing still for 50-60 years (however, wifi... More

We stayed four days in this hotel in May 2013 while on an ancestral journey tracing where my great grandmother Olava Olsen was born,and baptised. This hotel gave great service with wonderful breakfast and dinner menues and a very comfortable room. The staff were courteous, helpful and well presented. A short walk to the 12th century Old Aker Church where... More

One of the worst hotels I have ever been. Not worth the expensive rate of approx. EUR 500 per night. If you decide to stay in this place bring sleeping pills as there is loud music all night long. Reception unfriendly not prepared to help. Going somewhere else if you want to sleep - there are many better and cheaper... More

I stayed for two nights and there was nothing I could complain about. The room was beautiful, we got an upgrade and had a suite. Breakfast was delicious with fresh exotic juices, fresh bread, rolls, eggs and ham, bacon, cheese, home made marmalade, chocolate croissants and everything else one can ask for. Service was excellent. Hotel is right in the... More

This first visit experience was highly anticipated but was in the end tarnished ........... Firstly I was warned when I booked the hotel that renovations would be in progress in July. The warning stated that 'The renovation will take place in one of the buildings, while the rest of the hotel is open for business as usual.'. I was not... More
