I really enjoyed staying in this hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Oslo. Near the centre and reasonably priced too (for Oslo). A lovely restaurant across the road from the hotel too.

Being used to corporate Marriott hotels, the Bristol was a most pleasnt surprise. Really good central location; 8 minutes walk from the train station, very near the Palace and surrounded by great restaurants. Breakfast is a real treat with smoothie shots (non alcoholic), real fruit juice, great selection of meats and cheeses, super fresh salmon. My son and i dropped... More

I had booked a single room, and was positively surprised by the spacious room (although the bathroom was a bit small). Friendly welcomming and efficient check inn, free internet, quiet room and a great breakfast. The breakfast was served in a spacious room in old styling (like the rest of the hotel), and the selection was very good. The freshly... More

Highly comfortable hotel right in the heart of the city. Friendly and welcoming, with a lovely lobby lounge, bar and restaurant + small exercise room with a few machines / sanua / sunbed. I look forward to returning.

Bristol is a classic hotel with both a nice lunch/afternoon tea spot, famous for its open sandwiches and classic atmosphere, and also the hotel boasts a stylish, old classic style library bar and restaurant for dinner. Rooms were nice, breakfast superb. The fitnesss room was disappointing, small and not well equipped, fx no thread mill. Professional staff, but thumbs down... More

Two nights in this lovely hotel was not long enough. The staff were amazing both front desk, main hall and breakfast, they could not have been more professional and helpful. The main hall was beautiful although busy as they served wonderful tea, cakes, and gorgeous open sandwiches in the afternoons. The rooms were clean and pleasant and traditional. Only disappointment... More

Good rooms, old styling but large enough to be very comfortable. It's not a Scandinavian Ikea style of decor and there is enough room to move around, store luggage without feeling cramped. All the staff were very professional and cheerful. Breakfast was comprehensive and had just about everything you could ask for, in some cases cooked fresh by the chef... More

We booked a business double for a special romantic weekend away over Valentines weekend - we booked a special 3 night deal with Thon Hotels direct & it was fantastic. My husband had stayed there 22 years ago on business & had always wanted to take me to Oslo as he had enjoyed it so much. I was concerned Oslo... More

Perfect place to visit inner Oslo. Walking distance of everything. Breakfast is impresive and also careful attention of the hotel service. Only a small disapointing about the main hall of the hotel that is very crowdy with people that goes for dinner from outside.

I've been working in Oslo on and off for the last two months, so have had the benefit of trying out a few of its hotels! And the Bristol was by far the best of the three hotels that I stayed at in the city. (The others were Clarion Folksteriat and Radisson Blu). The Bristol has a lovely bar and... More
