The central Oslo location of this hotel helped us maximize our exploration of some of the city's most interesting historic and cultural venues since many were within easy walking distance.
Check in and out were quickly and efficiently handled by friendly professional staff which is of benefit especially in old hotels with small desk and lobby areas where crowds can gather quite quickly. Off the lobby are two large and inviting sitting areas, one of which with views outside of the daily hustle and bustle of downtown Oslo. The restaurant is a large, comfortable and beautiful example of old world elegance.
Our charming room, located on the 5th floor overlooking the train station and park surrounding the National Theater, was quite large by Scandinavian standards. We were happy to be able to leave the window open at night and pleasantly surprised that street noise was a non issue at least until early the next morning when the pedestrian crosswalk chirpers started going off.
For us the room was perfect however two things to be aware of for those with mobility concerns 1) the tripping hazard transitioning from the bathroom to the bedroom and 2) the wall height of the classic tub/shower.
For an intensive exploration of the essence of Oslo I highly recommend the Continental.
