Well located hotel in Oslo

Pros: We like the style of this hotel which is old but very comfortable. It is very popular with business, tourists and locals creating a great atmosphere.
Cons: The only small issue we had was that the mattress on our bed was too soft for our liking
Location: The location is very central and is very cloe to the Grand Hotel. It is only a short walk away from a Metro station which is very good.
We very much enjoyed 4 nights at The Bristol Hotel in Oslo. We had booked a Superior Room which was at the front of the hotel on the 4th floor. The bedroom was spacious and very comfortable with two armchairs, a desk, a modern large TV screen with an adequate range of channels. We were pleased to find a wadrobe with adequate hanging facilities and shelves for our clothes and an easy to operate safe. The bathroom was pleasant with a walk in shower room and a good selection of shampoos, creams etc. The towels etc. were changed daily and of a high standard. The double bed was plenty large enough for us and again the bed linen was of a good standard.

Friends sightseeing trip

A gorgeous hotel, with extremely helpful staff. The young man at reception came outside to show us where the airport bus stopped. Breakfast was super, with a wide range of foods to choose from. Our room was very clean, however it did tend to get very warm. The hotel's location is superb!

Quietest hotel ever!

We arrived on Saturday midnight when a party was in full swing, and could be heard in the stairwells and corridor. However, not a peep was heard in the room. The other guests were either all amazingly quiet and considerate of others (not talking in the corridor / flushing loos late etc.) we were also unable to hear them from our room. Beds were comfy and duvets hot - I would have liked a sheet and blanket being a hot sleeper. The only thing that made a noise was the air con which we could not turn completely off, although it didn't seem to run in the middle of the night anyway - 1-7am? Breakfasts were fantastic. Only small thing as Brits we would have liked some hot milk to go with the strong coffee. The hotel is lovely and central and near 2 tram stops (didn't get used to bus routes). Get an Oslo Pass! We saved hundreds of kroners on the 72 hour pass!!!

Hyvä sijainti keskustassa!

Hieno hotelli hyvällä sijainnilla! Helppo kävely tärkeimpiin nähtävyyksiin! Hotelli tyylikäs ja hienosti sisustettu. Huoneet ovat siistit ja erityisen hyvät sängyt! Aamupala oli hyvä, runsaasti erilaisia vaihtoehtoja. Henkilökunta oli ystävällistä.

Gut gelegen, schnell im Zentrum und in Restaurants

Pros: Es wurde auf den Zimmerwunsch (nicht zur Strasse hin) eingegangen. Das Zimmer lag sehr ruhig für ein solches Hotel, auch auf den Gängen war es ruhig.
Cons: Duschkabine war undicht (unten), dadurch läuft beim Duschen Wasser ins Badezimmer.
Location: Nahe beim Parlament und Palast, viele Restaurants und Hafen in Gehdistanz. Bahnhof ebenfalls zu Fuss erreichbar. Holmenkollen mit U-Bahn erreichbar.
Für einen Städtetrip gebucht. Aufgrund von Bewertungen, die wir im Internet gelesen haben, haben wir einige Wochen vorher per Mail angefragt, ob es möglich ist, ein ruhiges Zimmer zum Hinterhof zu erhalten, da gegenüber des Hotels eine laute Bar ist. Dieser Wunsch wurde erfüllt. Unser Zimmer hatte dadurch logischerweise keine Aussicht, was uns aber nicht störte. Im Zimmer befindet sich ein TV mit Internetzugang, eine regulierbare Lüftung (evtl. Klima, war nicht so warm, daher nicht beurteilbar) und ein sehr weiches Bett. Ich mag das, andere nicht, ist individuell. Leider verursacht auch kurzes Duschen eine kleine Überschwemmung im Bad, da die Türe der Dusche nicht richtig schliesst. Fön, Bügelbrett, Minibar und Safe sind im Zimmer installiert - wers braucht. Preise der Minibar sind astronomisch, wie üblich in Hotels. WLAN ist gratis und funktioniert sehr gut, das Frühstücksbuffet ist reichhaltig. Klassisches wie Brot, Aufschnitt und Käse, aber auch Speck, Ei und Lachs. Abends kann man an der Bar des integrierten Restaurants etwas trinken. Die Preise für Alkohol sind wie in Norwegen üblich wahnsinnig hoch. Die Bedienung ist (ebenfalls wie überall in Oslo) sehr freundlich aber relativ langsam. Der Eingangsbereich des Hotels ist als Bibliothek eingerichtet. Von der angeblich so lauten Bar gegenüber des Hotels haben wir übrigens auch draussen nichts mitbekommen, wir waren allerdings auch meist um Mitternacht im Bett, evtl. kommen die richtig lauten Partygänger erst später raus.

Für Paare top

Die Stadt ist von hier fußläufig zu erkunden. Sehr sauber, leider dürfen in der Minibar keine privaten Getränke gekühlt werden.

Mooie uitvalbasis voor citytrip

Ouder hotel, onder renovatie een beetje vergane glorie. Lekker en uitgebreid ontbijt- kamer klein en donker en badkamer verouderd. We hadden een prima deal, dus de prijs maakte veel goed.
