Stylish hotel

Posted Sep 19, 2017
Pros: The abundance of fresh fruit at breakfast each morning, the fresh decoration and the comfort of the room.
Cons: It got a bit busy at peak breakfast times so sometimes it was hard to find a free table. However, the breakfast room has a lovely feel to it.
Location: It is close to all the good shops, the Palace, theatre, cathedral, City Hall, waterfront and some good museums. Trams and underground also nearby.
The Grand Hotel has a great location and is only a short walk away from the railway station. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the staff were all friendly and helpful. Our room was a great size, nicely decorated and everything worked well. The housekeeping staff workedhard and kept the room and hotel clean and tidy. The breakfast options were great.

Central Oslo in Luxury

Posted Sep 17, 2017
Oslo is like no other city in Europe ... it offers a glimpse of Norwegians at work and play without pretense. So if you go there, stay here. The hotel is right in the heart ... close to the business, shopping and tourist attractions. We at the Grand for three lovely days and can't say enough about the staff's helpfulness and friendliness. Our room was spacious and comfortable (great bed). We enjoyed the Sky Bar (perhaps too much) where locals come to unwind after the day. View of the city is quite spectacular. Loved it and will return.

Best Hotel in Oslo

Posted Aug 31, 2017
Pros: classy yet modern, excellent staff and breakfast
Cons: none
Location: The harbor for a boat ride is close, lots of shopping. I enjoyed Heidi's Bier Bar for evening drinks and its a few blocks from hotel.
The Grand is the best hotel in Oslo. Classy yet modern. Perfect location on Karl Johans and easy walking distance to all the attractions and the harbor for a boat tour. The hotel is an easy walk from the National Theater train station so easy access to and from the airport train.

Comfort

Posted Aug 31, 2017
Pros: Luxury, Comfort, Friendliness
Cons: More shelf space or drawers. We did need to totally empty luggage and re pack for air travel.
Location: Walk along Karl Johans, window shop, see the parliament buildings, fountains, the national theater. Very safe to walk at night.
We were at the end of a 3 week vacation, and in need of comfort. The Grand Hotel Oslo was an elegant solution. It was easy to relax and unwind. The breakfast buffet was excellent and catered to special diet needs.

centrally located in Oslo city

Posted Aug 27, 2017
Pros: Professionalism and knowledge of staff. Location. Safety.
Cons: Mattresses that are firm, more friendly for the back.
Location: Walkable to Opera House, City Hall, Metro/Flytoget stations, etc.
A return visit after several business trips/stays at the Grand 1979-1983. Renovations are wonderful yet keep the original charm of hotel.

Classic Elegance and Style

Appropriately named, this hotel is beautifully styled with wonderful rooms and helpful staff. Extremely well located. Excellent (though pricey) breakfast. Lovely bar. Very good fitness room.
