Very nice hotel with excellent location at the city center. Just a few minutes walk from a National Theater train / metro station. It's also very close to major attractions and museums as well as major shopping area. Rooms are clean and big. Front desk is very helpful. Breakfast buffet offered good variety of food. I'd definitely recommend this hotel... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Bristol. The historic nature of the building has been preserved and it has a very comfortable ambience. The bar and restaurant are great for those evenings you don't want to wander out. Breakfast is plentiful with an enormous range of choices.

Comfortable, albeit very formal room in central location, perfect for all main attractions. Piano player in bar in late evening. Masses of choice at breakfast, although ambience slightly marred by excessive speed and surfeit of waiting staff at breakfast! Found myself dodging waiters with plateful of food in my hand. Scrambled egg very solid, no mushrooms. Would benefit from classical... More

I stayed two nights. My room had a small balcony and a lovely view of Parliament. The hotel is old and somewhat dark, which gives it a charm enhanced by stuffed reindeer heads in the dining room. The location was very convenient to sights such as town center and the opera house. It is also only several blocks away from... More

Good location one street off the main street that runs through city center to the Royal Palace. Walking distance to all attractions in downtown area. Elegant hotel with comfortable rooms, decent breakfast buffet.

Lovely hotel situated right in the centre of Oslo. Check-in was fast and informative. Huge room, tastefully decorated - l loved it! The bar near reception was quiet with lovely decor, as was the bar next to the restaurant. Breakfast items were nice and fresh with an impressive menu. I will definately come here again - one of the nicest... More

I haven't been Oslo for about 4 years and was coming back for a 2 day business trip. I do travel extensively in the Nordic region and do always try to avoid what I call the stark Nordic norm you can easily find (very functional but without character and bot skyways as trendy as imagined) when searching for hotels in...

We were extremely happy with our room, we had booked the business room, so it was larger and more luxurious and well worth the extra money. A very sizeable room with comfortable beds and great linen. The main living area has timber floors, which are for us a bonus rather than worrying about how clean the carpet is!!! The bathroom... More

The hotel is located on a corner within walking distance to many sights, restaurants, and the newly renovated wharf district. The entry hall and reception reminded me off many, older "classic" hotels of yester-years. Unfortunately, the rooms and bathrooms were quite small for this caliber of hotel - there was barely enough room on either side of the bed for... More

Forecast for today 7 to 14 c. No heating in the room. Water in the shower just warm, not hot. You sink in mattress. Very small bath area for two people. All the bath gets flooded after taking a shower. And this is because i paid an upgrade to the club rooms. If you get a regular room in the... More
