The lobby is so inviting, I didn't want to leave the Library Bar - it was really cool. The hallway freaked me out at first since it reminded me of The Shining but when I went into my room, I was transported to a different vintage era. The bathroom was the largest I've seen in Oslo with a nice size... More

This is a beautiful charming hotel in a fantastic location for sightseeing and walking about the city. We took a cab to the hotel from the train station due to the snow and messy roads and thought lugging suitcases not a good idea. The cab ride was short and worth the Norwegian kroner. Our room was big, bright and beautifully... More

The staff were all so friendly and incredibly helpful. I trusted them and they were kind. The breakfast service was amazing. The hotel itself is beautiful and a great historic relic. It was so fun to walk around and peek in all the beautiful spaces! The room may have been on the smaller side, but it was suitable. It was... More

Hotel Bristol is well located in central Oslo. It is about a 20 minute walk from Oslo Central Station or a 5-10 minute cab ride. We stayed 2 nights, one at the start and one at the end of our Norway trip and each night was fantastic. The hotel was very accommodating and allowed us to check in early both... More

The hotel was in very central location and the entrance looks lovely. Very disappointed with the room - very small without facility to make a cup of tea or coffeee and not even allow to use the fridge. The temperature of the room was very hot and not able to lower temperature and had to leave window open all night.... More

The Bristol Hotel is a traditionally-styled hotel in Oslo. The rooms are well decorated and adequate in size. When I went I had a hard time finding the right spot for wifi in my room, but it was ok. The breakfast was very good, with any amount of options in the buffet. It is very well situated, just a few... More

Our first night in Norway was restful. This was a good hotel. The staff were kind and helpful. Breakfast was provided but we had to leave early so the staff packed us some items to take with us. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel was beautiful. A pianist played in the lobby and you could order food there... More

Business and leisure trip to Olso, and the Hotel Bristol came up trumps for both. Old school historical hotel very well located in Central Oslo near theatres, restuarants, metro system stations, and pretty much everything you need. Oslo is not a big city but the Hotel Bristol is very well situated Small rooms, very old classic style hotel that appeared... More

Hotel Bristol is a great, old-fashioned, hotel with all of the facets of durable service. The lobby area is pleasing and vibrant, the restaurant is all oak panelling and everybody is very willing and helpful. The service is great. However, there is a disco Friday and Saturday nights in the adjacent building on Sehesteds gate which, literally, vibrated us out... More

When we have functions like this, we try to place you in rooms that are not affected by exterior noise. In this regard we have failed to do so, and we sincerely apologize on behalf of Hotel... More

If you want to explore the streets of Oslo and still have a quiet place to sleep and enjoy a great norwegian breakfast, the Bristol Hotel is the right choice for you. Many reviewers say that you won't be able to sleep at night because of the noise from the street, but we were there at one of the busiest... More

Dear “Lilian P”, Thank you for taking the time to give us a great review on Tripadvisor. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed our great breakfast and that you had a good night sleep while you stayed here with us.
