I have stayed at the Bristol Hotel several times over the years. It is a traditional kind of old-fashioned hotel in the centre of the city, just one block away from the main street Karl Johansgate. 5 minutes walk from the Nationaltheatret rail- and subway station. It has a great charm, and it has the Librarybar, which is linked to...

We stayed 4 nights in Hotel Bristol in early July and had a fantastic stay. Room was quiet and breakfast buffet was wonderful. Very well located to everything and a street or two off the hustle bustle of pedestrian corridor. Employees were pleasant and helpful. Easy walk to harbor area. Bus to airport about 50 yards down the street. Fast...

We stayed there with my wife ? 4 nights in May 2014 , for our honeymoon trip. The room was not very spacious but it was very elegant with antique furniture. The breakfast was amazing , staff was very helpful and polite and it's location is central. Amazing choice value for money for Norwegian data. Would strongly recommend it.

We recently took a 16-day family trip to Norway, and in the whole country, my favorite accomodation was the Hotel Bristol. The hotel is located within easy walking distance of many Oslo attractions; Akker Brigge (the wharf), the City Hall, Karl Johans Gate (the pedestrian shopping district) the palace, and Oslo Central Station. The rooms are spacious; they were able...

And very easy to reach. Take the fast train from the Oslo airport to the National Theater station and walk a little less than 10 minutes to get to this historic building. The rooms are quite comfortable for two people though the bathrooms are quite small. Sunday breakfast was extraordinary with a wide variety of traditional foods, fresh baked breads,...

This hotel met all our expectations, we arrived very early in the morning and checked in with ease. The staff were very friendly and accommodating from the moment we arrived, checking us into a room early so we could drop our bags and get ready for a day of sightseeing. The hotel has not been updated since the 1920's and...

I had a great stay at the Hotel Bristol. After reading a review by a solo traveller about ending up in a tiny single room, I made sure that I had booked a standard double room. The room was very spacious and looked like the pictures on the website. I faced into the courtyard so it was very quiet. The...
