Beautiful hotel, phenomenal central location

Posted Mar 20, 2017
This was our first trip to Oslo, and The Grand Hotel did not disappoint. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and our superior double was cosy and clean with a great balcony and ginormous bed. This hotel looks great after its refurbishment, and any hesitation you might have based on the old dowdy photos should be swept away: it's modern and impressive. The 8th floor roof bar doesn't quite live up to expectations, but the lobby bar/restaurant more than makes up for it. Whilst the city is expensive, the hotel itself deserves nothing less than 5*s.

Location was great, decoration was beautiful

Posted Mar 10, 2017
The location was great, decoration was beautiful, but the heater of the room wasnt working at all so they gave us portable heaters which you dont expect for a five star hotel. The breakfast buffet was delicious though.

Comfort in a great location

Posted Feb 27, 2017
Pros: Convenient location, delicious breakfast, comfortable and quiet room, excellent staff
Cons: The internet was fine but could be faster, especially in lobby / library area
Location: The hotel is on the downtown park, near a pedestrian shopping street and famous sites. We walked to the opera house, castle, and Nobel museum.
I traveled with a colleague for work. Since we didn't book directly through the hotel, I actually had low expectations – I figured they'd put us in small rooms. However, the rooms were very comfortable: mine had a queen bed, sitting area with TV, small desk, and ample bathroom. No view outside, but it was quiet and comfortable. The staff was always helpful, and the breakfast in the morning was INCREDIBLE! Breakfast was not included with our room, but it's well worth paying extra. And the hotel location is fantastic, convenient to sites, shopping, trams, and rail. I would highly recommend.

Beautiful hotel - probably best in Oslo

Posted Feb 10, 2017
Stunning decor (art deco - marble, gold and velvet everywhere). Staff couldn't be sweeter and more helpful. Gym and spa are brilliant (seriously, better than my gym at home and the spa was gorgeous). Bars - both main bar and rooftop bar - were awesome. Also a great location, super central and easy to find your way around if you're a first-time visitor to Oslo, as we were. I don't think we could have picked better!

Classic elegance and great location

Posted Dec 20, 2016
We stayed here for 3 nights in Dec 16. The hotel staff was outstanding, and very helpful. The breakfast buffet was pricey (as all meals are in Scandinavia), but, boy, was it good. The hotel is conveniently located to a metro stop, and the public transportation is good - if you're there for any length of time, be sure to buy a pass that lets you use the metro and buses throughout the city.
