This hotel met all our expectations, we arrived very early in the morning and checked in with ease. The staff were very friendly and accommodating from the moment we arrived, checking us into a room early so we could drop our bags and get ready for a day of sightseeing. The hotel has not been updated since the 1920's and... More

I had a great stay at the Hotel Bristol. After reading a review by a solo traveller about ending up in a tiny single room, I made sure that I had booked a standard double room. The room was very spacious and looked like the pictures on the website. I faced into the courtyard so it was very quiet. The... More

We stayed at the Hotel Bristol in Oslo, Norway in July 2014. We were part of a tour group on the move covering Sweden, Denmark and Norway in about 15 days. Our favorite hotel on our trip was the Hotel Bristol. The lobby, dining rooms and bedrooms and bathrooms were all updated and elegant. All of Scandinavia was experiencing a... More

Our second stay at this hotel which has a wonderful location. Arrived at 01:00 am and no one to assist with my baggage. At the age of 76 this is a hassle. The hotel has not changed and retains its charm. Breakfast was good. The problem was with the position of the shower in our room. I am not tall... More

We have stayed at the Bristol on three different visits to Olso, this year for four nights in August. The Bristol is a grand old hotel in the heart of Oslo. The Bristol has the air of grandeur, and one of our joys each afternoon or evening has been enjoying coffee or a drink in the lounge. Our rooms each... More

We stayed here towards the end of our stay in Norway, we were not disappointed. The hotel is in a great location, has good access to food, sites, tour buses and parks as well as shopping! The hotel itself had a really lovely atmosphere, a traditional feel to it from the low lighting to the extensive and comfortable seating area... More

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

We just stayed 2x1 night at the Bristol, one night in a standard room and one in a business room so this is a review in two parts. In general, the hotel is very nice, decorated in that traditional old European style, the location is perfect: right in the center of town, 10 minutes walk to the waterfront or the... 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
