Stayed for three nights 26th to 28th June. Hotel was well situated for the city of Oslo with the harbourside only a 10 minute walk, my favorite area. All hotel facilities were good and the breakfast was well plentiful, cereals, fruit, meats, chesse, jams, eggs, bacon etc. Make sure you get your fill it could save a midday meal and... More

Our family of two adults and two children stayed at the Bristol for two nights at the beginning of our stay in Norway and one evening at the end of the trip. I could not have asked for more. The staff was extremely accomodating and friendly...really the most helpful in every way. We arrived very late our first night and... More

The Bristol Hotel has one of the most beautiful lobby/bar areas I've ever seen. My single room was tiny, but nicely decorated and comfortable. They have in-room high-speed internet access for a fee. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and tasty, though the breakfast room was overcrowded and I had trouble finding a seat. The Bristol's location is perfect, right in... More

Although the Bristol is a good hotel, and in an excellent location in Oslo, I think a couple of negative points are worth mentioning: Heated floors are comfortable for cold feet, but unfortunately they do tend to heat the room too - ours (quiet, high up with an oblique view of the Royal Palace) was unfortunately unbearably hot to sleep...

I'd definitely recommend this hotel - just couldn't fault it! Great location, beautiful place, great rooms, nice staff, yummy breakfast.. We did have rooms facing the street and yes, the place did come to life at about midnight, but I can't say that the noise was so bad it was a problem. Definitely bring your own alcohol as a round...

Very close to the city center. The hotel is placed in a quite street, but very close to the bus or tube station (5 minutes walk). The breakfast is excellent and propose a lot of choice. The first rate room are small but very nice with every thing you need for a stay. People are nice and very helpful to... More

We stayed in the Bristol Hotel last week for three nights and would be very happy to recommend it to other visitors to Oslo. In a city where everything is frighteningly expensive, the Bristol gave us a great room in a central location with absolutely everything we needed, including the very nice young man from room service, who opened the...

The Bristol is the smaller sister of Oslo's three Grande Dames or historic hotels; the Grand, the Continental and the Bristol. While maybe not as snooty and refined as Grand or Continental, it is still a place to be seen in Olso. In fact, one morning while enjoying coffee in Bristol Lounge we were seated next to Norway's former prime... More
