4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We only had the chance to stay here one night during our recent break. The hotel is grand, but it's a little old in many places. Our room had clearly been refurbished recently. Comfortable bed, good shower and quiet once the downstairs party had finished. It is all you need during a city break. Location is good. It is an... More

Stayed here with my husband on the first night of our vacation last summer, an ocean cruise preceded by a day touring in Oslo. It was clear that this hotel has been around for many years - in a good way. From the richly appointed reception, lobby, and lounge areas (lots and lots of well aged wood), to the extremely... More

There is a safe and good wifi. The room is amply sized and has good lighting. The frills do not completely overcome the limitations. Though the facial tissues are frilled in the bathroom, there are only a few in the box and we quickly exhaust the supply. The shower is nice and the soaps supplied are uniquely scented, the temperature... More

We were not guests, but called a day in advance to book a table. You should do this as it is a very popular event. The brunch itself is extravagant. Loads of options both for breakfast, dinner and dessert. We tried as much as possible and didnt really find anything that wasnt good. They have a chevice bar, a risotto... More

This hotel is centrally situated and not far from the main railway station. It was comfortable, well appointed and welcoming. The bedroom was large although the bathroom was ridiculously small. The breakfast provided an excellent range of options including gluten free. Not everyone enjoys sharing breakfast tables with strangers though. Staff were helpful. This chain (Thon) has never let me... More

Nice located hotel with an old fashioned flair in its interior until you get to your room. The rooms are modern and confortable not missing anything you might need. Having tea and a nice cake at the Library bar is quite a nice experience when is raining outside. This hotel is within walking distance of many landmarks in Oslo

Only stayed in Oslo for the first time for 2 nights but found the Bristol to be a comfortable surprise. The hotel is a little dated but beds were cozy, room efficient and breakfast top notch. The hotel quickly grows on you like your favourite charming scotch swirling aunt. The staff, location and service were all worthy components of their... More

This is a very nice and clean hotel, situated very centrally and a short walk from the seafront and other Oslo landmarks. I stayed in a single room - which is exactly that - with a 1.5 size bed, which is more than enough, very comfortable, and although the space of the room is limited, it is very well laid... More

Classic hotel in the centre of Oslo- if you're coming from the airport, the bus which leaves from stop 11, just outside departures will take you to the door. The rooms are spacious with a good sized bathroom. Nice big flat screen TV with good, free wifi. Comfortable bed, L'Occitan cosmetics in the bathroom- all in all - one nice... More

My wife and I booked last minute so ended up in one of the standard room. To our good surprise, while the room was a bit old fashioned and could benefit from some refurbishment, it was actually quite comfortable and very clean. While the room was extremely quiet on weekdays, it was very noisy on Friday and Saturday nights as... More
