Near bus station and train. Connections to Oslo and Göteborg. Lovely park and strolling street nearby, small town aura. Charming. Friendly people, No language problems for Scandinavians. Fortress on hill.

It is a very old hotel with some great paintings hung about the place (I loved the attic fighting soldiers in the restaurant). The beds are the usual Scandinavian thin mattress style, the room itself is big enough and the shower was great. You do get some noise from the nearby train station but it never bothered me, so I...

If you like historic buildings, then you will like this place. The hotel is placed in a old building. I personally don't like squeaky wooden floors with less wall-outlets to charge my pc and phone. The hotel is situated bang opposite the station. This means it is very accessible. However, this also means that you get to hear trains passing-by....

Great hotel with excellent location in the middle of Halden. This is an old style hotel but with most of the modern hotels perks. Rooms good, personell fine but one of them somewhat lacking in language skills. Great breakfast. And location makes it easy to reach resturants etc in the citycentre. Trainstation 10 m away so perfect for guests travelling...

The hotel was interesting...the interior kind of funky. It was clean and spacious for a family of four. As a family of four it is tough to get one large room when traveling in Europe. This was a good sized room with an adjoining bedroom...one bath. The staff here was very nice and it was good in terms of its...

This is a slightly strange hotel, possibly made worse by it being really hot and no air conditioning. There was a fan but really did not help. So, good points - easy to find, short walk to a few restaurants that were OK, breakfast OK, staff friendly and helpful. Band points - room was small, no parking, building a little...

I most probably had one of the best rooms of the hotel (not facing the street). Super breakfast, super room. A very clean hotel with friendly stuff, very efficient - it feels like family being around! They even prepared a breakfast basket for me as I had to catch my early flight early! Many beautiful reading posts, stylish hotel bar....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For centuries Halden has been the gateway to Norway. The Grand Hotel has a long tradition as Halden’s central hotel, and we wish all guests welcome to enjoy our excellent service and homey atmosphere. Grand Hotel is situated in downtown Halden, less than two minutes from the railway station, bus depot, the town market square and guest harbour. Within easy walking distance you will also find the cultural centre and a number of shops and restaurants. The Grand, with 33 rooms, all with shower, bathroom, cable TV, telephone and wireless internet, has undergone a complete renovation in 2010. With its ideal location, the Grand Hotel is the perfect place for meetings and conferences for small or large groups. We have excellent rooms for all types of private parties and have some quite unique rooms to offer. What about an evening in the old gunpowder storeroom from 1720? You should also try our cosy Grand Bar that has a comfortable pub style. ... more   less
