We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. Our room was on the 6th floor and was a standard room. Size is reasonable for 2 people. The decor is old style but all modern. The cooling system did not work well but windows open. It was likely unusually warm when we were there so not really an issue. The breakfast was... More

It was extremely enjoyable to stay in this elegant hotel perfectly situated in the heart of Oslo. All the staff were efficient and helpful, the refurbished public rooms beautiful ,only one restaurant operating due to upgrading but it produced excellent breakfast and light meals. Loved our stay there.

Stayed at the Grand for a week in mid June 2016. Had a room on the 6th floor facing one of the adjacent streets. The room was large and the bed was comfortable. The window opened and turned into a door to a small balcony. Particularly liked the pool and sauna on the roof top. If you wear the bath... More

Try their bar as it is actually cheaper than the bars along the street. The breakfast is good and worth booking in advance. Olso airport is a fare distance out of town but fast... More

Rooms were large, modern, comfortable and immaculate. This is a class hotel with a wonderful breakfast buffet. In the center of all that is Oslo with walking distance to all attractions and restaurants. Concierge was especially helpful. Would love to stay at this property again!

Very surprised it had not been checked before hand. Construction was going on outside our room.Also, coffee capsules in room were... More

We stayed 2 nights prior to a cruise and this hotel was chosen by the tour operator. We chose a different hotel (Savoy) on our return leg as we planned that part of the trip. We liked the Savoy better. They are undergoing renovations which meant we had to walk through some construction to get to our room. Not cool.... More

Beautiful hotel, but still going through renovations despite what web site says. Exceptional staff, polite and accomodating. Breakfast very good with enough variety, and great fresh squeezed orange juice daily. They even had an early bird breakfast for those travelers that left before the regular breakfast was served. Table servers attentive and willing to bring special requests. Renovations are going... More
