I got a night at Grand Hotel, in Oslo, as a birthday gift. The room 361, is a ok room. I've had better rooms in the past. clean and tidy as usual. The most upsetting was the sound from the subway or trams, which ended past midnight, and started early in the morning. Since my live-in is not that experienced,...

I'm not sure what The Grand Hotel looked like prior to its renovation but it is VERY nice now. The location is good, right on Karl Johan's Gate across the street from the Norwegian Parliament building, the Stortinget. Check in was quick, the rooms nicely appointed and that rooftop bar and spa is pretty spectacular. The hotel is also within...

That the Grand is ideally located and beautiful is undeniable. The service from the front desk and bellhops was excellent. We were concerned, having read reviews, that our room might be small but the superior king (room 379) is, in fact, quite spacious. The downsides: the thermostat is set to 80 F with no instructions for how to reset it,...

Excellent location with opulent structure and decorative lobby. Nice breakfast at Grand cafe. Ever smiling and courteous staff at the reception and concierge are enhancing the image of the property. But the management should look into the maintenance of bathroom fittings, doors and mattresses.

The hotel is in the middle of shopping and dining and not far from the water. Our suite was spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast in the cafe was extensive and wonderful. I think this is the best place to stay in town.

I much prefer hotels with character, and the newly-refurbished Grand, situated right in the centre of the city, has plenty. However a 5 star hotel charging very high rates needs more than just character and also must take care of the details. I was in an upgraded room which was huge, but had a really tiny bathroom, with only a...

Good standard rooms and in a luxurious setting. Everything was good. Great breakfast too. Only minor complaint there was be that the tomatoes were uneatable. They tasted unfresh and like fridge so I assume they been in one too long.

Regrettably we were only able to spend one night at this beautifully remodeled hotel. Our room was nice good size.
