Reviewed yesterday NEW

the hotel was very nice. it was more than worth the money. the location was in the heart of downtown and during the winter when we went there was a great little christmas village type setup with little shops and a ice rink right in front of here.

Elegant and nice location.Hotell staff is quite polite.The sad part is that such a huge and "established" hotell doesn't seem to have space for people with allergies.Not only they could not provide allergy-friendly alternatives,nor vegetarian alternatives either When asked,kitchen staff was not even aware of what the food was made of.2 out of 3 staff members didn't seem to have...

Of course, location is centered where surrounded with cultural events, shopping outlets and entertainments. We had 2 nights stay at the hotel with breakfast included. We highly recommended you included breakfast for your booking. The breakfast is great and... More

Great hotel with a very nice bar. Breakfast was awesome and the rooms very comfortable. Nevertheless at first it seemed all very old style, which is not mine, but all (rooms, bar, restaurant,cafe) have many modern elements and makes it a very nice place to be.

After redecorating, the place look fabulous. One of the grand old hotels of Oslo. Good service, nice room, excellent breakfast. In my opinion the higher room are less noisy. Very centrally located, all the usual extras. Would I stay again, definitely.

I'm laying in my bed at the Grand in Oslo and it's basically the most comfortable bed EVER! This place is a real treat. Dinner in the restaurant last night was superb, and breakfast is excellent. I feel very happy right now!
