The staff and atmosphere at the Continental are just lovely. It is both classy and cosy. The breakfast is great and the location extremely convenient for trains and the sights of Oslo central. I thoroughly recommend.

Hotel is centrally located in Oslo not far from the Royal Palace and Aker Brygge. The staff were all very polite, welcoming and helpful. The room was fantastic, spotlessly clean and very modern; all the public areas were also very well kept and clean. If you are staying in Oslo I would definitely recommend this Hotel.

If you are looking for a nice, centrally located hotel in Oslo, look no further. This hotel is located in the heart of everything, within (a short) walking distance to the Royal Palace, National Theater, Arkehus Fortress, shopping, restaurants, bars and other attractions. It is also across the street from the subway/train station so, easy access to everything (including OSL... More

Stayed one night in a single room on 4th floor, got a newly renovated one. It was very nice! Superclean, modern, really nice bathroom with bathrobe. Only thing missing was a full body mirror in the hallway. Room faced busy Friday night street with nightclubs and bars so took a while to fall asleep. Breakfast was great, good selection and...

No quibbles - everything excellent. Very high standard - part of a 3 city tour Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo - 3 nights in each - best hotel by far. Position very good - easy access from Main station. Right in city centre but quiet. Oslo card good value (senior rate for us). Public transport right at hand and works well. Viking... More

The hotel is very well located on the down town city center of Oslo. The breakfast is very good and the restaurant is fantastic. The rooms are ok and totally equipped with a good decoration. One negative thing is the fact that the wifi is free of charge but doesn't work very well.

Another very nice stay at my by far favorite hotel in Norway.. The location of the hotel is unique and you can check in less than 30 minutes after the airport train leaves OSL. Most of Oslo’s sightseeing worthy places is in a walking distance. They have a very good mixture of the classic international high en hotels (reminds me... More

The hotel is located at the centre of the city where you can easily access the train/metro/airport express train/ buses/ trams. Also it is just next to the first stop of the city hop in hop off bus. The breakfast is great and staff are very friendly as the case with all Norwegian people.

Continental is one of the best hotels in Oslo (if not THE best). It's located in the center of Oslo, Karl Johans Gate, National Theatre, Kings castle, City Hall, Aker Brygge - all within couple of hundred meters reach. From the airport you can take the Airport Express to National Theatre station - this is located 50m from the hotel.... More
