Not what I expected! A very rude check in, because cash is not good enough. Well not every body prefer credit cards. Renovations on the 3rd floor where my room was.Very noisy as I could hear what the next door occupants were talking about.Shower doors not properly sealed and I have to dry the floor every time after a shower....

Great looking old hotel from the out side and very central,the foyer looks amazing and the service at the reception was good. Our room was old and dated and inward facing so no real view,for the price you pay I expected better. Breakfast was good,but we had a dinner fuction in one of the rooms and the service was shocking... More

The Bristol is nicely located near the royal palace, several museums and the National Theater, and close to the harbor and other points of interest. Our room was lovely, if a bit small (albeit with a king size bed). Because of all the sources of heat - and good insulation - we had to open our window to get the... More

My Husband and I were in Oslo to see our only son for Christmas. We brought our mothers (81,82) with us as well. We had stayed at the Grand Hotel in the fall and found it to be a fancy lobby but very dated rooms and overpriced....NOT the Bristol. Even though the building has some history the lobby is gorgeous.....the... More

I stayed here for the past three nights on business and was pleasantly delighted. The hotel is older and obviously has taken over neighbouring properties over time. The lobby and meeting rooms and common rooms are very nicely appointed. The rooms themselves are typical for Scandinavian hotels. Two small beds put together and a small washroom. However, the room was... More

Terrible service and ignorant staff, wouldn't go back there for free! We had to be locked in and out by the staff when we was entering our room since the hotel was out of key cards, it's like a baker without bread on his counter.

This is a very elegant hotel with an excellent lunch and afternoon tea room. As a hotel at the center of Oslo it is a very comfortable and convenient. We stayed there over new year, great fireworks down at the harbor, 5 minutes walk from the hotel and very friendly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Bristol. The staff were lovely and helpful and the food was great (we only had breakfast at the hotel). There was a lively and Chirstmassy atmosphere in the hotel lobby and we loved sitting in the armchairs with a glass of wine. The location is also fantastic - perfectly placed in the city... More

We had a double and a junior suite and the rooms were modern (though furniture was traditional) and well maintained. The suite even had a dishwasher and microwave, although we didn't cook or eat in. The baths are impeccable. Front desk attention was excellent. The hotel was quite full over the New Year's holiday, but service did not suffer. Add... More
