Bristol hotel, Where shall I start. Great location, really pleasant and clean rooms, but the thing that makes this such a good place to stay are the staff. All of the people are incredibly helpful and generous with their time and advice. We celebrated our wedding, and even though wedding is a stressful time, the hotel made us relax. Decorations, food service everything was “perfect”! We got what we dreamt. The staff, where shall I start, they are the best! Especially Ponthus, who helped us with the wedding, he was so nice! We loved everything! Can’t wait to celebrate our anniversary here next year!

Bristol is, by far, the best hotel in Oslo. You would have to make another class to compare it with the others. You got high class, and on top of that you got Bristol. The staff are very friendly and proffesional.

Hotel Britol in Oslo offers an exstraordinary experience. It's a high quality hotel, providing everyting you expect as a guest, but it is the hotel crew that makes the magic happen! They are more than amazing. Not just how they provide service to the guests, but also how they interact with eachother.
