“Great hotel in a great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2010

I have recently spent four nights at the hotel Bristol with my 13-year-old daughter. I lived in Oslo for two years ten years ago so I knew what location I wanted. The hotel itself has an old-world charm that greets you the second you enter the building. The service was excellent; reception couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast buffet had a good selection of dishes both hot and cold. The room was simple compared to the rest of the hotel but very comfortable. Overall, we had a great experience staying at the Bristol

Congratulation to the entire team including Chef, cooks, service staff - I highly appreciated the excellent dinner served in your historic rooms. I am looking forward to my next visit a couple of days ahead, only.

I like this hotel a lot. The reception staff are helpful, and the piano bar nice to spend time in with friends and colleagues. The rooms are comfortable and with enough space. Beds are nice, and the minibar well equiped. I've also attended several meetings and conferenences in this hotel, and it has been great every time.
The breakfast bufet is very tasteful, with lots of different types of breakfasts to choose from.
It's simply a good hotel experience. And I may regret writing this review, since I worry it will be fully booked so I won't gete a room.

Location good for train from Oslo airport - just 5 min walk from National Theatre station. Hotel provides great service, facilities excellent and breakfast a real plus. My room was very spacious. Only negative is that it does tend to stay very warm but you can open two windows which cools the room nicely.
Only negative for me is that the hotel, although excellent, feels a wee bit old fashioned for my tastes. Not a criticism in terms of the quality of stay but rather the aesthetics.
Would definitely stay in again and recommend.

Do not waste your money on this hotel. It is noisy if your room is facing the street. 50 Dollar each day for parking is expensive. Anyway: The rooms are nice and cozy, and also the food. Several people in the staff should consider changing their jobs.

Beautifully appointed, well located - walking distance to most everything. Helpful staff. Very expensive, however, for the size room.

This hotel was wonderful - very friendly and helpful reception staff, beautiful decor. The breakfast was a HUGE buffet with every possible item available. The service was overall really great, and went out of their way to meet our needs. Fantastic, central location within very close walking distance of the port and town centre. Expect to spend a lot on food and drink (enormous amount, actually) but this is NOT a Bristol hotel issue exclusively, this is Norway! There was a cute little gym and sauna on site. The room we had on the 8th floor overlooked a pub, so a bit noisy but not too bad.
