This was my family's second stay at Hotel Bristol in three years. We love the location - convenient to all the major sights in Oslo and an easy walk to restaurants and night life. We appreciated the inclusion of breakfast in the room price and found the breakfast to be very nice (enough food choices for everyone in our family... More

So the hotel is all what other reviews say. Old charm place with beautiful lobby. The rooms were quite nice as well and the location is great. Breakfast despite all the other reviews was a let down. There is certainly big choice of foods but the cooked breakfast is a big dissapointment if you are one of the people who... More

This is a very nice hotel, located in a great location; central to everything in downtown Olso. The national museum is just a block or two away and the Nobel Peace Center just a few minutes walk. (The express airport bus departs less than 100 meters from the hotel.) The rooms are large, comfortable, and quiet. The options at the... More

Location is fantastic. Walk to Parliament. Royal Palace, National Gallery... Walk to the Open Tour stop. Walk a bit more and you are at the waterfront. Hotel is old style, it has a special charm. Breakfast is really good and the breakfast room big enough to fit all guests. Good staff atention at front desk. The bus to the airport... More

Excellent hotel (services, breakfast, cleaning, wifi, location etc.) but rooms are hot and the hotel has a lot of basic noise. Windows open are no option due to location in city center. But i will easily return here cause of all the good aspects.

Positives: a great location. Really friendly and helpful staff. A very good breakfast: only one criticism of that: why put a few slices of bacon all over the fried eggs? Firstly it would ruin the eggs for vegetarians (not me), and secondly, as nearly everyone likes bacon the small amount disappears almost immediately leaving a big tray of eggs with... More

Great location and ambience and friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable and spacious room for a 5 night stay (pay for 4 deal) and good place to stay for solo traveller. The breakfast was very good. Would prefer refrigerator for personal use and coffee/tea making facilities in room.

We chose this hotel for the location, then we were blown away by the gorgeous decor and fabulous breakfasts. It was close to all the downtown shopping and restaurants, as well as Oslo's excellent subway, which we rode out to the Vigeland Sculpture Park. The desk people were cheerful and helpful, and we even had nice encounters with the cleaning... More

The ground floor library bar and lounge have a certain wow factor: we arrived in the evening to live piano music and a party dining by candlelight in the far corner. Thereafter, it was like any other large, impersonal city-centre hotel. Reception cool but courteous, friendlier on our departure! Not a lot of room for manouevre in the bedroom but... More

This hotel has a great location that is in easy walking distance for any sightseeing you want to do. Royal Palace, Nobel Museum, Resistance Museum, ferry to Viking Museum and many others. The rooms are very comfortable and quite charming. The lobby has the flare of the olden times yet the conveniences of today. I highly recommend this hotel.
