We had two nights here and overLl our experience was great. The only downside was the gym. No treadmill, two bikes and a cross trainer jammed up against each other, with no towels and no water. Not.a particularly pleasant experience. But apart from that the hotel is very old, has a great breakfast and is in an excellent locAtion, right... More

This is a very nice hotel located in walking distance from the City Hall, the Central train station and lots of nice spots worth visiting. I was there for business just for a couple nights, enough to experience the kindness of the personnel, the large room and the awesomeness of breakfast! Not a cheapo, but maybe that's because of the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bristol. It is a classy "old style" hotel but extremely clean and well maintained. The lobby bar and "restaurant" is something to be experienced. Food was excellent and the service superb. Our room was tastefully and elegantly furnished although a bit on the small side. Great city centre location. The breakfast buffet was... More

The lobby is always full of business people. They serve in the same lobby a light lunch and brunch. The rooms are ok. The hotel has some years, but is still ok. The rooms have a wierd key system. When you leave the room, you have to insert the key card with the oposite side to lock the room. Otherwise... More

This hotel has a lot of charm and is really well located. It's clean and comfortable with a fabulous breakfast. So why am I rating my two-night stay so low? As a solo traveler, I've seen some small rooms. The bathroom here needs to come with a person-sized shoe horn! For the average person, it is literally impossible to stand... More

This majestic old hotel is currently under going room refurbishments, hence if you intend sleeping late to enjoy the Oslo nightlife you may wish to readjust your plans. We were lucky however and had a refurbished large room. Couple of points off for no blackout curtains, no clothesline in the room, no tea coffee facilities. Positives service was good as... More

Enjoyed staying at this hotel. The room was big and clean. Had beautiful bathroom. Furniture outdated but went with the hotel theme. Located in a great location. Was able to walk to some areas and the metro system is very close to go to further areas. They have the best breakfast. It is not the traditional continental breakfast I expected.... More

I attended a conference here in June 2015. The facilities were excellent and we were delighted with the elegance of our surroundings. Some of the rooms have an air of such old-fashioned opulence that you feel transported to another time! Some additional signage to direct guests to other parts of the building would have been appreciated though.
