“warm and great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I ama staying this hotel. You can get there form airport without Thé train it is onla 3 stop. Takes about 1/2 hour. Whenever you get off Thé train in Thé national theater stop it is very closed 2 minutes.
8 if you ara staying 2 rhan rooms May be a little bit small. Great location you can reach to sea as well as shopping places.. Breakfast is great.. So Much food as well as fresh juice is just great.. I highly recommended this hotel

The bed in my room was so terrific that I overslept. Everything was excellent except for the fact that the taxis blocked the hotel entrance so that my taxi had to drop me off further away so I had to carry 4 bags myself down the street to the hotel.

classic business 4 star - comfortable bed and efficient staff - helped book a restaurant very nice. Design is classic and location is truly perfect. Breakfast was pretty basic as often in The region. Great for business but there are cosier places in Oslo if you are on holiday. This is all i can really say and not much more to come up with 200 words. I would say that continental is not a place to party. Really not much more to say, sorry.

I stay 10 days and I'll go back to this excellent location, service, restaurant.
Continental hotel is in walking distance from Modern art museum, Nobel museum, National theatre, Parliament. Underground train station in front of the hotel.

Room Tip: all are large rooms with view to the city

The hotel has very nice and cozy ambience. Service was good and front desk was always helpful and polite. Great location with walking distance to several good little restaurants and bars. Directly opposite a train station for convenience and a theatre for culture. It was my first visit to Norway and i was very pleasantly surprised.

The hotel is 50m from where the airport train stops. It's so central - opposite the National Theater, 15 mins walk to the Opera House etc. Terrific staff. Courtyard rooms (inwards facing) are as quiet as any city rooms I have ever stayed in (almost pin drop level!) Not cheap - but then nothing in Oslo is! Great breakfast spread (fruit, meats, cheese, hot dishes - nothing is too much trouble).
The only criticism I have is that the rooms have been designed to look good rather than to be functional. There were no drawers and the wardrobe is TINY. We were 2 people for 3 nights with a small case between us and we were draping clothes over the sofa.

Room Tip: If you like quiet - ask for the courtyard rooms (as they call them) - the inward facing ones. And as...

I want to preface this review by saying Oslo is the most expensive city I have ever been to. If you look at my travel map, I have been to a decent amount of places. This hotel is not cheap, as I paid 2,600 NOK ( $400 ) for one night including breakfast. This is where I would stay next time I visit Oslo.

Location: The hotel has a fantastic location. If you take the airport train to the National Theatre station it is 20 minutes and 170 NOK ( $25). The hotel is located directly across from the station entrance and National Theatre. Taxis are so incredibly expensive that I would not recommend them. Oslo is not a large city and everything was walking distance from the Hotel Continental. The waterfront is a 5 minute walk and we were able to walk to restaurants, museums etc.

Staff: The staff is very polite and proper. Val at the front desk was lovely and super helpful. I had no qualms here. Everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel.

Rooms: The room was clean and modern. We had two twin beds which are close together. The bathroom is modern with a great rain shower. I was very satisfied with the room.

Internet: Included in the room rate and worked just fine.

Food: Didn't eat at the hotel but it has a great looking restaurant. Breakfast was included in our rate but we did not wake up in time as we were out late night.

Overall: Great place to stay in central Oslo. The hotel is also part of the American Express Fine Hotels program. You can't go wrong with this hotel. Just remember it is expensive.
