I took a friend to the new opened wine-bar in the cellar of the hotel as it has received a lot of coverage in local Oslo media. A lot of good stories on the atmosphere, the wine selection, the selection by glass etc. I am sorry to say that this is the biggest disappointment I have had in a very...

Just stayed one night here. Room was a decent size with bath and shower. It was just before Christmas and the Christmas market was across the road. The bar was full by 19:30 and appered to be the place to be seen. The location of the hotel is a straight walk from the train station used to connect to the...

The newly refurnished Grand Hotel brings a much needed feeling of continental Europe to Oslo. Nice lobby bar, a lavish lounge perfect for afternoon tea, the newly reopened Grand Cafe restaurant next door (were they also serve a fabulous breakfast) and a great spa on the top floor complete with swimming pool, sauna and steam bath. The spacious superior rooms...

I'm very satisfied about the room, the room service, the cleaning, the desk service and the staff. I'm not satisfied about the spa, I have booked my reservation also in relation of that but when I asked it was full of reservation and the 1st of January was closed

Stayed for 2 days just after Christmas, it's a great location and a lovely hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the bedrooms and beds comfortable, the only downside to our room was the view over the central part of the hotel looking at ducts and other hotel windows. Breakfast was good, there were lots of options.

Location is perfect, outside of hotel is beautiful. Nice reception, friendly staff, helped with bags. Theresa at the front desk was very helpful getting us the room we requested. However, it was clear that no one had bothered to check our request before we came. No one responded to the emails I had sent either. First room we had was...

A luxurious building with less than luxurious service. The spa facilities closed early 30/31st and all day on 1st. All had to be pre-booked - even the swimming pool sessions. We were not warned of any of this despite emailing in advance asking about spa treatment sessions. The restaurant, roof top bar and wine cellar closed 31st evening and the...

My husband and I booked 3 nights here as a sort of mini moon. The concierge were very helpful as were all the staff members. They have luggage storage (free) which we made use of on our final day in Oslo so we could explore. The breakfast was great and seems good value for money in Oslo and everything was...
