The staff was welcoming from check-in and their courtesy continued throughout the remainder of our stay with excellent suggestions of where to go while assisting us in selecting the right trains and buses to get to our destinations. The breakfast served was our favorite during our 2 week stay in Norway, lots of variety and, like the hotel, respected the... More

A beautiful , relaxing place to stay. The furnishings give you something to contemplate while enjoying your coffee, high tea or meal, in very comfortable seating. A small selection of very attractive dishes are available in the lounge, or seating in the dinning area with table service. Reception staff are friendly and helpful. Our room was exceptionally clean and comfortable,... More

This hotel is elegant and nicely located in the Oslo tourist area- within walking distance to many things. The wifi works well, the breakfast buffet is open at 6:30 AM and has wonderful choices. The beds are comfortable with white linens that smell fresh and clean. It has a bar and small cafe in the lobby, as well as elegant... More

First the cons: the shower was poorly fitted over the bath so it leaked badly. My wife has arthritis so holding the button down to dry her hair was painful. The iron wasn't very effective. Why 4 star rating then? Pros: 5-10 minute walk to the waterfront/ royal palace/ trams/trains. Very helpful staff. Great choice for breakfast (best I've seen... More

My Norwegian friends suggested I stay here rather than on the main street. The hotel is quiet, elegant and provides comfortable rooms, excellent service and great food. I will stay here again on my next visit.

We had a Saturday night stay for a romantic evening and night and Bristol hotel delivers. If you want a romantic night you choose Bristol. Great breakfast as well and it's perfect not matter what you want to reach in Oslo. My favorite hotel in Oslo

You should really come here and order the afternoontea in the cafe. It's the best! It's a so nice place. Just like a museum! The food is so good! You can come here without sleep in the hotel. I love coming to the restaurant! It's very spesial and unique!

This hotel would seem to have a lot of history and is certainly grand in appearance in the lobby. My room was spacious; the staff were pleasant; and the breakfast offering was varied and delicious. The hotel was within a short walking distance of the main tourist attractions in Oslo and a great base for exploring the city.

Awesome hotel, super clean and (seriously) the most incredible breakfast buffet I've ever experienced! There was so much choice it was almost stressful! Rooms were great, very clean, comfortable. I also dropped my credit card and the staff at the front desk were super helpful and friendly helping me find it! Excellent experience at the Bristol and would stay here... More

Our room did overlook an inner courtyard but there was a plenty of daylight and no noise. The room itself was large and had been recently refurbished and overall was very comfortable. The disappointment was the fact the Bristol Grill has closed so the only restaurant was the bar which has a very restricted menu. The buffet breakfast was very... More
