“Central Location Adjacent to Train Station”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

Location, Convenience , Value & Helpful staff are 4 reasons we enjoyed our 4 night stay. Rooms could use a little more storage space,AC .. Noise level higher on side of Hotel overlooking main square ( "Tiger Square") people noise at nigh /early ,morning or current construction noises. Good bang-for-your -buck ( NOK) Breakfast buffetis good & has many choices. Walking distance to stunningly new, Opera House ,, Royal Palace, Museum and national gallery , shopping and Oslo Cathedral.

Main train station is adjacent.You can also get the Express Airport train here.We would stay here again..Skol!

Room Tip: Upper rooms away from Main Square which can be noise at night/early morning.NO AC so windows need to...

It might be the Scandinavian frugality that made the previous reviews decided to give it 4 and 5 stars, I guess. I mean the hotel is okay but nothing to rave about. Agreed, the location is great, staff is chirpy and helpful and the rooms are clean. But the breakfast was modest, the rooms are so too. And I fail to understand why there is no shower mat provided in most of the Scandinavian hotels.Be extra careful when you lock the door. Ours would need extra efforts and pull to make sure the latch is locked.

We were very pleased with this hotel. It has an urban, modern vibe, and the staff was super friendly and helpful. The room was quite small but adequately appointed, and the Wifi worked beautifully. It is very conveniently located to the train station and the opera house, as well as for walking to downtown attractions. Breakfast was amazing, and they let us come in to breakfast late when we first arrived at Oslo at 9:30 am, so really we were able to eat breakfast twice. Also, they checked us in early so we were able to stash our gear in the room and head out to see the town. I would definitely consider this hotel again, especially when you are planning to leave from the train station in the am. It cannot be more convenient.

Room Tip: Askf or a room with a view of the city - ours faced a wall.

I'm very happy with the Comfort Hotel Grand Central. The location couldn't have been more convenient, the rooms were simple but comfortable, and the breakfast and free wifi is a great deal. I'd recommend it to anyone. The only downside was that at 7am on a Monday morning I was awoken by construction work inside the hotel which wasn't great but other than that I can't complain.

I stayed in this hotel with my friend for the long weekend. The hotel is great and here are some observations and tips for you about this hotel:
1. Staff can speak fluent english and very helpful
2. Good wifi
3. Good selection of breakfast with fresh smoke salmon and caviar...yum!
4. Great location but right by Oslo central station and the national Oslo opera house. If you want food, can go into the central station after finish watching an opera. Also close to the main shopping strip - karl johans gate.
5. Hotel with modern decor, clean and spacious and also we got an upgrade as we came to the hotel a bit earlier than the check in time 3.30pm
6. Bathroom is very big with 2 showers and a bath tub...

These are some tips about the hotel:
1. If you want your room to be cleaned, dont expect they clean before you come back. We left the room at 10am and we came back in the afternoon only to find the room was not cleaned. However hotel staff was very helpful and quickly gave us clean towels ans cleared the rubbish.

2. Also check in time on line say 3pm...got there around 3pm and told room was not ready yet. Then when we came back again, the room was still not ready so they gave us an upgrade.

3. There is a supermarket inside the central station. Come out to exit north or utgang nord and turn right and thats where the hotel is.

4. No fridge inside the room so dont buy too much food that require refrigerating...

5. If you need to check in earlier, make sure you let the staff know directly before you arrive.

6. No mini bar in the room but you can get free tea and free coffee downstairs next to the reception.

Hope you find the tips useful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
What is your time worth? If you know the answer, you'll choose Comfort Hotel Grand Central. We are Oslo's most centrally located hotel. Just three minutes to the airport express – and three minutes to Oslo's main shopping district.We are challenging the traditional model for a business hotel. Ourlocation is outstanding, our cutting-edge facilities are housed in an historic railway building and our prices are excellent.Once in your room the only sound you will hear will be the faint hum of the airconditioning. We have 170 rooms. And 113 of these are unique. Many enjoy views of the opera house or Oslo's bustling main shopping district. Some are inspired by the compact studio apartments of Brooklyn, while others have protected historical significance and many a story to tell. (Norway's first railway track started right at this station.) Interior designer Lars Helling describes the look he has created as "industrial shabby chic". We'll treat you to a free breakfast in our restaurant where you can enjoy our homemade strawberry jam and fresh bread. The man in charge of our restaurant is celebrity chef Ole Johnny Eikefjord, of Eik Annen Etage fame. He dishes up what may be the best bolognese in Oslo – andgives you the right Barbera to go with it. And if you're only after a quick business lunch, you are welcome to order a half portion. But if you have more time, feel free to compose your own three-course menu.Enjoy the food while you imagine the bustling railway concourse in 1854: travelers hugging their loved ones, children smiling and laughing from the trainwindows, and steam trains snorting into life.Whether it's early in the morning or later in the day, many of our guests enjoy working out. Our training suite is compact, but very well equipped. And it's open 24/7,so you can go at it whenever you like.We tell our guests that they save an hour by staying so close to the airport express. That's an hour you can spend however you like. A workout? A beer with an old friend? Or perhaps you'll make an earlier plane so that you can kiss your children goodnight. It's up to you.If you are looking for elegant and efficient hotel, Comfort Hotel Grand Central is the easy choice. ... more   less
