This is a slightly strange hotel, possibly made worse by it being really hot and no air conditioning. There was a fan but really did not help. So, good points - easy to find, short walk to a few restaurants that were OK, breakfast OK, staff friendly and helpful. Band points - room was small, no parking, building a little... More

I most probably had one of the best rooms of the hotel (not facing the street). Super breakfast, super room. A very clean hotel with friendly stuff, very efficient - it feels like family being around! They even prepared a breakfast basket for me as I had to catch my early flight early! Many beautiful reading posts, stylish hotel bar.... More

I stayed one night at this hotel, which is placed near the train station and the harbour area. It is an average hotel, with quite a dark reception area. It seems the hotel has been decorated in a faux "grand" way. I got a double room, with a view of the tracks. The room was clean and comfortable but not... More

Average hotel. Not top good service. Very crowded bar with only one person to serve. The room was ok, but the breakfast was below expectation with fried eggs that looked like they were prepared yeasterday.

Old and historical hotel with atmosphere. Friendly staff, small hotel.Standard Scandinavian breakfast buffet. Given a rather small and boxy room with some disturbance from the street on a Saturday night. Noise carried easily from the other rooms and from the street (old building). The staff, though very friendly, didn't honor any of the perks for holding a best western diamond... More

We discovered there is limited parking at the hotel - along the street. It is free from 1800 - 0900 each night. We parked between those times so we did not have to pay for parking. The front desk clerk was very friendly and helpful, answering all of our questions.. He mentioned that there was a small dinner being served... More

This time in Halden we wanted to try Grand Hotel. We booked a deluxe room. The photos were promising, but when you arrive at a hotel, the reality is often a bit more dull and faded than the photos. But not at Grand Hotel! We entered a lovely reception area where a young guy greeted us welcome. The common rooms... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For centuries Halden has been the gateway to Norway. The Grand Hotel has a long tradition as Halden’s central hotel, and we wish all guests welcome to enjoy our excellent service and homey atmosphere. Grand Hotel is situated in downtown Halden, less than two minutes from the railway station, bus depot, the town market square and guest harbour. Within easy walking distance you will also find the cultural centre and a number of shops and restaurants. The Grand, with 33 rooms, all with shower, bathroom, cable TV, telephone and wireless internet, has undergone a complete renovation in 2010. With its ideal location, the Grand Hotel is the perfect place for meetings and conferences for small or large groups. We have excellent rooms for all types of private parties and have some quite unique rooms to offer. What about an evening in the old gunpowder storeroom from 1720? You should also try our cosy Grand Bar that has a comfortable pub style. ... more   less
