“Stylish, well located, comfortable. The only "but": no dinner service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

If you like classic hotels, check this one! Beautiful lobby, beautiful furniture, and very kind service.
It is very well located for tourists (walking distance from the airport bus stop, and the city center). Definitely, we recommend it. The only improvement I can suggest: to offer dinner service.

I stayed here for 2 x nights while visiting Oslo for business.
The Hotel is located in a good location just around the corner from The National Theatre.
The lobby is decorated in classic style with dark wood chairs and large paintings on the walls.
There is a coffee shop towards the back of the lobby and also a bar area.
The room allocated was very nice, although a little on the small side it was big enough for a single and a short stay. The room was decorated in modern styles and had all mod cons. The Bathroom was very modern and had all facilities you expect in a major city centre hotel.
Overall I would recommend this hotel for a short stay in Oslo.

This was a great hotel. Close to museums, train station, shopping areas. It's a little pricey, but it is Norway, and everything is pricey. The breakfast buffet was fabulous. The service was good, room really comfortable and clean. I'd stay there again in a heat beat.

I must have stayed in the Bristol about ten times; once or twice on my own and the rest with my wife. And every time something really irritating happens. This time it took twelve hours for the plumbing to be put right in the bathroom and we were victims of phantom reserved signs in the library.

But is doesn't matter because it is the Bristol and by far the best place to stay in Oslo so we will undoubtedly be back next time. Try it yourself and see.

Room Tip: Nobody will take any notice but make a fuss.

Stayed in Oslo for one night and chose this hotel based on location. Fabulous location as you can walk to all the attractions Oslo has to offer and you are very close to many fabulous restaurants. The room was stylish and well appointed with a very comfortable bed. Bathroom good size but strangely lacking is some amenities... Shampoo but no conditioner.. Breakfast was good... Great variety to choose from... It just can get a little busy as the area is not very big. I loved the decor... Very old style with so much charm. The staff were very friendly and very informative. Also handy that they offer valet parking as not many hotels offer this. Overall a great stay and would choose to stay there again.

This was our first visit to Oslo and decided on this hotel based on reviews on the Internet. My wife and I arrived late in the evening. The check in was done very quick. As there was no hotel staff to bring our luggage to our room, the check in person was very kind to assist us. This was the first sign of the high quality of service at this hotel. The room was nice and comfortable. There was a good spread of food at breakfast and they provided gluten free bread upon request. The service was very good. The hotel is well located, not too far from the tourist information office, the ferry stations, the train station and subway station. It was a good base to explore Oslo.
On check out, one of the hotel staff helped us carry our luggage to the SAS Airport Bus station. I really appreciated this gesture.

Feels like a grand old european hotel , even though is part of a chain . Very pleasant interior , great breakfast . Room a decent size & ok bathroom , to be critical the hotel will need some work soon to avoid moving from old world charm to shabby. The gym/fitness centre is laughably small..in this day & age & with the space the hotel has I'm surprised they havent upgraded this . Nice location , good distance away from the miserable part of Oslo by the train station.Will stay again.
