Courteous Front Desk Staff and great breakfast choices! this is the only hotel in my 5 countries trip in Scandinavia Region, that has no phone inside the room and fly in the bathroom. Disappointed but the front desk helps out to compensate for the bad experience. The housekeeping of the hotel and below par.

We were sad to only spend one night here, but the room was great. There were 2 beds each with their own bathroom which was perfect for our family. The roof top deck was incredible with terrific views and great drinks. Very easy check in/check out. The location is in the heart of it all!

It's true that the Grand is well situated in Oslo, a short walk to the harbour and the new National Museum. It looks very shiny as you enter but there it ends. Our room was tiny with very little space to put anything (a problem as we were just back from a cruise) The ensuite was similarly cramped. We decided to eat there the first night - bad decision. The menu was tiny - though this seems to be a common feature of Oslo restaurants. Despite having only 3 items for starters they managed to serve me the wrong one and I had to wait some considerable time to get the correct one. We ordered burgers which were so soggy and disgusting that they were sent back after a few mouthfuls (though not charge for thankfully). Breakfast takes place in the rather beautiful old cafe attached though this is not open in the evening. Staff were unhelpful and at a premium. For example, we ordered coffee from one and it never materialised so we got it ourselves. The buffet was average in quality.

Beautiful hotel in the heart of Oslo. Shops and restaurants right outside doorstep, and most attractions in walking distance. Besides being in an excellent location, the hotel is very clean, our room was spacious (we had a superior king with sleep sofa), the staff friendly and helpful and they offered nice amenities. Lastly, the breakfast buffet is wonderful-I’d have to say the best I have ever had!! I look forward to returning.

One of the best managed hotels we've ever stayed at. Staff amazingly courteous and efficient. Great location within Oslo. It is not an inexpensive property, but the value is excellent. We would return in a heartbeat.

As the header says, I have never in my life had such a good breakfast. A lot of choices and all so good. I had some friends with my who was super happy about the breakfast as well. The hotel it self, fantastic, absolutely something else than what the hotel chain normally offer. The service this hotel offer is absolutely the highest a Scandic hotel can reach.
