Basically close to everything, and so handy when travelling by rail. Very friendly service, great breakfast. All rooms are spacey, tidy and silent. A hotel with a great character - built in an old railway hall. Several restaurants just next to hotel, no need to even go outside.

I stayed at the Comfort Grand Central while in Oslo at the two ends of the Sognefjord in a Nutshell tour. The hotel was kind enough to store my luggage for the five days that I was away. I was in a standard single room each time (Rooms #472 & #326.) The hotel was at the western end of the...

If you are arriving in Oslo by train this is the perfect hotel for you as you can reach the reception area through an undercover arcade with attractive shops and eateries. My room was very comfortable with a spacious bathroom. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Very clean hotel close to every transport option in Oslo. The only problem was finding the hotel in the railway station complex. There was no signage anywhere and no information on the Hotel website. Overall a good stay.

The location could not be better, being placed at the Central Station itself. You do not need to go outside wether you want to use train, subway, bus, taxi or plane (via airport express), and the tram is only 50 m away. In need for an instant tourist atraction and only 15 minutes to spare? Cross the road and have...

Oslo decided to rain the whole time we were there. How delightful to arrive by train, walk through areas of the station to get to the hotel, stay there with all of Oslo's shopping under roof, and leave via train to the airport. The staff was gracious and helpful, the rooms were interesting for their construction within a heritage building,...

Overall, we enjoyed a two night stay in the Comfort Grand Central but there were some negatives. The hotel is a conversion of part of the late 19c train terminal and just a short indoor walk from the present one, so it has an excellent central location. It was raining when we arrived at the airport (not unusual in Oslo!)...

We stayed here on a recent visit to Oslo. Our express train from the airport took us literally to the hotel, which is in the old train station that is connected to the current train station. We had a very comfortable room overlooking the square. Yet, it was completely quiet. Wonderfully insulated and blackout curtains. The staff was always responsive...

This hotel is located within the central station at Oslo so it's perfect if you're travelling by train. The rooms are very small but clean and tidy with a good sized bathroom. The breakfast was excellent but I would like a toaster for bread. Good staff made it a very pleasant stay!

You can't beat the location of this hotel being that is within the train station. The staff are very friendly. The rooms are very clean. The bathroom was spacious with a good shower. The bed is very comfortable. There's free tea and coffee in the reception area and ice machines by the lifts. I loved visiting Oslo and I would...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. Our training suite is compact, but very well equipped. And it's open 24/7,so you can go at it whenever you like.We tell our guests that they save an hour by staying so close to the airport express. That's an hour you can spend however you like. A workout? A beer with an old friend? Or perhaps you'll make an earlier plane so that you can kiss your children goodnight. It's up to you.If you are looking for elegant and efficient hotel, Comfort Hotel Grand Central is the easy choice. ... more   less
