This is a gorgeous hotel! I felt like I was staying in a palace, it just felt so grand! Chandeliers, red carpet, gold lining, it was wonderful. The staff were very helpful with suggestions and tips for the local area. There was a huge selection of food at breakfast, my husband was very impressed ;) I would recommend this hotel.

Very elegant hotel based near the centre, easy access to transport, museums, harbour etc. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast alone is worth coming for.

This is a beautiful hotel. You wouldn't know it from the outside, as it is rather nondescript. The inside however, is resplendent in classic decor. The staff were extremely helpful and spoke excellent english. The rooms were beautiful, clean and pleasant. The rooms we had did not have much of a view to speak of. We had rooms on the... More

This was a classic hotel. The rooms were quiet comfortable and clean with modern bathrooms. A large varied breakfast buffet with odd hours not suitable for those who have mid morning international flights. Resteraunt and bar service was very good. All staff spoke excellent English. Booking reception service was polite but despite pre booking and pre paying for accomodation questioned... More

After check-in to business room (level below suite) on 3rd floor we stood like "is this reality?" But it was just begining... We had to have 2 interconnected rooms and the normal one wasn't ready but it was 11am so no problem. The outdated interior of 350 was horrible and from 6/86 hotels in Oslo You just expect something completely... More

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights from December 28th to January 1st. From the moment on when we walked in, we were mesmerised by the beauty and elegancy. The hotel has an old, charming "high-class" feel to it. The atmosphere was great, people were sitting in the main hall and enjoying themselves. Then there was a piano player,... More

We stayed at the Bristol for three nights during our Oslo visit. I selected the Bristol based on TA reviews and travel book recommendations. We were not disappointed and had a lovely stay at the Bristol. The hotel is centrally located and easy walks to the main Oslo town attractions and the port area. Our room was very large, comfortable,... More

If you love old world charm, this is the place. The 1st floor lobby area is beautiful and the ambience is warm and upscale. The front desk staff is extremely professional and helpful. They are the high point of this house in my opinion. The rooms are clean and the breakfast is first rate. If you are traveling from another... More
