Hotel Bristol lies just one block away from the main Oslo promenade of Karl Johan street. It still maintains the atmosphere of a bygone era with its Old English style "library" bar/cafeteria off the reception; the pianist playing evergreens while one enjoys a luxurious (open) sandwich or a drink. Rooms vary in size and furnishings. I enjoy the ones that... More

We have checked in today at this "classic" hotel today. But after a day of tour, when we returned to our room at 5pm, we found that the air ventilation is not working. The repairman came and checked and said it's not working. Thus, we asked to change the room as this is our first night after our long haul... More

Stayed here for 3 nights from 22nd - 25 th Aug. 2015. Decided on the Bristol after reading the earlier reviews and can only say good things about the hotel, service and staff. We stayed in a club room - spacious with all amenities one would expect. One of the best breakfast spreads I have had in Europe. Very centrally... More

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely old hotel. It had the charm and elegance that suited the clientele that were noticed in the main areas of the building. Our room was very nice, comfortable and very clean. All the facilities worked and the servicing was done professionally. Workmen were carrying out an update of various rooms in an unobtrusive...

The Bristol is an elegant hotel on a nice street in a nice city. I had a good room (with one weird feature -- the shower in the bathroom had no curtain or enclosure, like some hospital showers -- just a hole in the tile floor for the water to drain out). But who cares? The Bristol has a fine... More

My wife and I met a friend here for afternoon tea recently. The friend lived locally and had wanted to try the afternoon tea here as she usually met friends at the Christiania Cafe, and we were happy to oblige. The afternoon tea is reasonably priced, the food was good, as were the teas, and from this perspective I am... More

Upon entering you are transported to the 1940's with a large lobby sitting area/bar filled with tables, over stuffed leather chairs, and large statues. There is often someone at the piano quietly playing tunes to relax the weary traveler. Now - as most European hotel rooms are concerned - the rooms are small and without AC. We had a room... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel because of it's very convenient location. You can practically walk to every attraction you want to go to, with plenty of restaurants and bars around the area to choose from. The hotel is a bit old but still with a very classy ambience. The room was clean and spacious with a safe and... More

Location, location, location. What a great find. Our business room was large and clean, plus we had a good size TV with many english speaking shows. It is an older hotel, but well maintained. The room was a little warm, but when we notified the front desk a gentleman arrived, opened a panel in the ceiling, and all of a... More
