Staff is not helpful and does not try to help you if you have issues. Rooms are old, at least the one we had and needs renovation. It is very noisy so you if you want a good sleep and do not want to hear what people are doing in the neighbour room this is not the place for you.... More

Hotel Bristol is a beautifully maintained character hotel located one block off the Main Street, Karl Johan's Gate, in Oslo. The rooms are quiet, comfortable and very clean. The breakfast buffet which was included in our room price was abundant and delicious, with fresh fruit, local foods and many options. The front desk staff was very helpful, providing maps and...

It is many years since I stayed at Hotel Bristol. But still they are tops. Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms clean and tidy - like we wanted it to be. Breakfast very good. Reception staff helpful and gave good advise. We'll be back! Regards M. A. Peck, Stavanger

A nice change from your typical chain hotels. Old world elegance with good service. Centrally located, close to museums, the Pier. Easily accessible from Oslo airport via SAS Flybussen. Nice breakfast, Great Nesspresso Coffee.

We stayed at the Bristol for a week in May. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included which is a bonus as Norway can be very expensive. If you have time to explore the city, you can purchase an Oslo card from the hotel reception, this gives you unlimited use of the public transport system and free or... More

The best thing about hotel Bristol was the easy access to the centre of Oslo ie restaurants, sights, trams etc. We had a standard double room which was very nice, beds were comfortable. It was quiet and we had a good nights sleep. The shower was at best ok not great. The breakfast was a typical buffet for this kind... More

I stayed at Hotel Bristol with my family. We needed two rooms and when booking our hotel I requested quiet rooms preferably with a connecting doors. We got rooms next to each other but unfortunately facing to the street with couple of bars on the street level. The "happy" party animals made it sure that our night sleeps were not... More

Very nice hotel. Took my mom for her birthday to afternoon tea there. It was excellent. Staff very nice and well positioned close to main areas in Oslo. We spent 2 days in the hotel. Breakfast was very good. Our Insight celebration dinner for the end of the tour, prepared by the hotel was terrible though.

Wifi great. Breakfast pretty good selection. Rooms are clean and comfortable. A little on the old side, some construction going on which was not disclosed when reservation was made but shouldn't be a bother except for some cords, paint, etc.

First to last this was a great place to stay. Easy to walk to from the airport train, conveniently located, friendly helpful staff, great breakfast, plenty of old world charm, neat and clean throughout, great price. On our way out they even offered to call a taxi or any other assistance we might want.
