“A good stay ...”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We spent four nights in this hotel and had two rooms for three of us - a double de-luxe and a standard single, which had a double bed. Both rooms were spacious, comfortable and the temperature was perfect - I didn't have to fiddle with the aircon controls as I do in many places.

The breakfast was excellent, but I'd have liked a few more days there to try the full range.

Friendly and courteous staff - the only problem I had (some of the sockets didn't work) was quickly resolved by showing me a shoulder-height switch that needed turning on - not very obvious!

The Oslo Continental is a stylish modern last century hotel with excellent service.
This is my second stay and I will defiantly be coming back again even if it is quite expensive.
The food is of good quality in a price level that is to most of us find expensive but compared to restaurants in Norway really good value! The breakfast is up to the high expectations of the five star hotel visitor.
Oslo is full of glass and steel so this romantic old style but modern is the perfect getaway for a weekend or business.

We stayed four nights in junior suite 815, on the top (8th) floor facing Olav V Gate (street) at the corner of Stortinggate. This room has a large balcony with table and two chairs, very nice in the afternoon sun. Really a nice room with a door between the bedroom and the sitting room which has lots of comfortable furniture. Lots of lights everywhere. Bathroom very nice, modern with a non-leaking shower door (a rarity on Europe). Very comfortable real king bed (not two twins). Exceptionally good service. Good breakfast, i.e., average for a nice hotel.

Not quite 5 star, mainly due to very worn upholstery which badly needs replacement, and tired carpet. Hallways recently attractively refurbished.

Hotel location superb, right in the main street in the middle of everything. Excellent café in the hotel and great restaurants just down the street. Try "Dinner', a curiously named absolutely top-notch Chinese restaurant; we've never had a better Chinese meal any place in the world - but you need to book well ahead.

This is a very comfortable hotel. The location is perfect for business and leisure trips.

The building is oddly shaped so the room configuration one gets is always a surprise but over a few stays I have always found the rooms to be well configured. The beds are comfortable and large (for Scandinavia) and the bedding is soft and comfortable. Down pillows are provided.

In the bathroom, many many towels are provided along with robes and slippers. I have had rooms with a bathtub or just a shower. The tub, when included, is huge and good for soaking. Sometimes the bathroom also has a window which provides nice ambient light.

The free Wifi is very good. There are plenty of conveniently placed electrical outlets around the desk making it easy to do work.

The breakfast is good with hot and cold food.

My favourite hotel in Oslo.
Through the years they maintained a good high standard.
Perfect location in city centre and walking distance to Karl Johan and Aker Brygge.
The rooms are all good but vary in size. Some are quite small.
Breakfast is Norwegian standard. Dinner in traditional Theatre Cafe is nice to try at least once.
Many good restaurants and bars in nearby Aker Brygge.
You will not be disappointed here.

It is a great hotel with a very friendly and welcoming staff. The rooms are spacious, newly made, and in a tasteful design. Likewise the bathrooms. The corridors needs a makeover though. The breakfast room and "Teatercafeen" is definitely worth a visit.

We stayed there for 3 nights and we really enjoyed it. Rooms are nice ( nothing amazing though). Molton Brown amenities. Service is really good. What we liked the most was the location : you are really in the center of the city and can walk to a lot of places. Very good choice.
