I stayed at the Comfort Hotel Grand Central for 2 nights in March. The hotel is located in the station and at first was difficult to find. But if you go to the ground level and head towards the exit, it's on the left (walk through the italian restaurant) and you'll find the lobby. McDonalds is on the right. The italian restaurant is also were breakfast is served. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The hotel is situated literally within a 2 minute walk of the Opera House and is in easy walk of the major attractions in Oslo. My room was clean and comfortable. There was a lounge area, desk and large screen tv located on the lower floor along with the bathroom (with a shower only). THe bathroom was modern and clean with heated floors. The bedroom was located upstairs in the loft area with another large screen tv. The stairs may prove problematic for some as they are quite steep and made of steel. The bed was comfortable. The first night I became concerned as I could smell smoke through the air vent in the bedroom. I contacted reception who immediately checked out the surrounding area and even came into my room to ensure everything was ok. They assured me nothing was wrong. I could still smell it the next night but not as strong. Breakfast was good with the usual european selection. Being in the train station is very handy and I felt pretty safe there even with the usual beggars inside and out.

- What is your time worth? If you know the answer, you'll choose Comfort Hotel Grand Central. We are Oslo's most centrally located hotel. Just three minutes to the airport express – and three minutes to Oslo's main shopping district.We are challenging the traditional model for a business hotel. Ourlocation is outstanding, our cutting-edge facilities are housed in an historic railway building and our prices are excellent.Once in your room the only sound you will hear will be the faint hum of the airconditioning. We have 170 rooms. And 113 of these are unique. Many enjoy views of the opera house or Oslo's bustling main shopping district. Some are inspired by the compact studio apartments of Brooklyn, while others have protected historical significance and many a story to tell. (Norway's first railway track started right at this station.) Interior designer Lars Helling describes the look he has created as "industrial shabby chic". We'll treat you to a free breakfast in our restaurant where you can enjoy our homemade strawberry jam and fresh bread. The man in charge of our restaurant is celebrity chef Ole Johnny Eikefjord, of Eik Annen Etage fame. He dishes up what may be the best bolognese in Oslo – andgives you the right Barbera to go with it. And if you're only after a quick business lunch, you are welcome to order a half portion. But if you have more time, feel free to compose your own three-course menu.Enjoy the food while you imagine the bustling railway concourse in 1854: travelers hugging their loved ones, children smiling and laughing from the trainwindows, and steam trains snorting into life.Whether it's early in the morning or later in the day, many of our guests enjoy working out.
