1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Traveling with friends, but staying in a room for one person, I was stunned at the difference in room quality. We paid the same price, but I was put in a very small room with one twin bed stuck into a corner. When I asked for a room similar to my friends, I was given the same small room, but... More

Comfortable hotel but a little tired (tiles were falling off in our bathroom and the shower was in the bath which was all a bit cramped). Central location and airport bus stop just across the road. We were there on a very hot day and one of our 2 rooms (516) was very hot - there is no air conditioning... More

Hotel Bristol's brunch had a great variety of dishes to please everyone's taste and needs. The room was really good, the shower powerful. Personnel were very professional and when we had questions, the Service staff handled it well. Location is simply the best. Within walking distance to the Royal Palace, the City Hall, Nobel Peace Center, downtown, 3 different shopping... More

My wife and I stayed here twice on a recent trip to Norway. After landing from the US, we stayed overnight before leaving on a train and at the end of our trip, we stayed here two nights. Both nights were very good. We took the Flytoget train from and to the airport. It was an easy 15 minute walk... More

There is only one thing to say about this hotel. Amazing! The breakfast is more than what you can expect, and the service is great. Especially the guys in the front desk deserve attention for the great service. We will be back!

We'd checked into several Thon hotels in Oslo before settling on the Bristol, and it was a good choice. It has an "old world" feel and is centrally located, easy walking distance from the Oslo central train station or the National Theater station (on either side of the Bristol; the National Theater is slightly closer). We reserved a "Business Room"... More

The Hotel Bristol was a perfect choice for our three night stay in Oslo. When I called ahead, they suggested we take the Flybus from the Airport. It let us off less than a block away. With heavier bags than I should ever travel with, the bus was a perfect choice and much more convenient than the train and less... More

Just returned home after a most enjoyable stay at this hotel. The "old style" with all modern amenities makes this hotel particular for me. Big and most quiet room (spotless and well equiped, soft and comfortable large bed!). The buffet breakfast was wonderful with lot of choice, it's not available directly but the hot chocolate is outstanding, just ask the... More

The Bristol Hotel is well situated for visiting Oslo as it is close to everything in the centre. No more than a 10min stroll to the harbour, train station, the Palace etc. The hotel is absolutely stunning inside, beautiful sumptuous furnishings, top class service on reception and whilst dining. No complaints at all! Our room on the forth floor was... More

Hotel Bristol has old world charm with all the modern things that travelers want. The rooms are large and this includes the bathroom. Large tub with good water pressure, double sinks, etc. Safe in room, wifi, and television with English channels. Great location can walk to all the tourist places.
