Rooms have been upgraded in he last few years. Staff very efficient/ friendly. In two weeks of European travel the best breakfast. Wonderful lobby lounge, bookcases, cubby holes. Just a pleasant place to have a drink with friends or rad a book. Well known to local residents.

The hotel is old and elegant and in a perfect location to do almost anything in Olso. The airport bus drops you directly in front of the hotel, which is extremely welcome if you've been travelling through 10 time zones for the last 24 hours and have a ton of baggage. In our case, we had no baggage since it... More

This hotel kept the Old charm like travelling back in time to the Old english salongs. Beutiful location inside, excellent staff all over from check in, cleaninglady, breakfast, bartenders and pianist in the lobby. Strongly recommend a stay here and close to everything, 10 minuter from Oslo Central and train to airport.

Stayed here for a couple of nights with my son, Hotel is well located close to the palace and walkable to the waterfront and opera house and other attractions. Checkin was easy and efficient. The rooms were nice and clean and reasonably sized. The breakfast was good. The building is a traditional older building and quite interesting.

This hotel was such a pleasure because of the excellent location, wonderful helpful staff, and superb breakfast. The shower may be the best shower I've had anywhere--hot, lots of pressure and water that lasts. A wonderful guilt-free change after conserving water in CA and NC. Bathroom down a short hall separated by a door from the bedroom. Large sink and... More

Very old fashioned looking but modern hotel very near Karl Johans Gade. Very good room, superb breakfast, magnificent supper. The reseption was helpful and spoke good English. I recimmend to all adults, maybe not good for families with smalla kids.

I am often staying in Oslo for business, and if Hotel Bristol is available, it is one of my top choices. It is one of the oldest, still-existing hotels in Oslo and still has an aura from early 20th century. The rooms are very traditional, clean and nice, and the staff is extremely professional and service-minded. The location is fantastic,... More

We stayed one night at Hotel Bristol (we're from Oslo but needed a short break), and had a good stay. They took care of our bicycles in the luggage room, and the reception staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms are decent sizes, but two twin beds put together doesn't count as a double bed - it slipped apart during the... More

Going to attend conference, so staying in same hotel, was the smartest thing to do. The hotel was great in nice old style, like late 18th style. Bathroom was with heated floor. That is very nice in cold mornings
