"Classic top 20 world class hotel... Best in Oslo.."
World class. Makes the Waldorf Astoria seem lacking. Everyone should do it once. In Oslo, no other worth it...

"Life is Grand in Oslo"
Great location in downtown Oslo, with a fabulous breakfast buffet, and service that lives up to the hotel's name. It's about four blocks from the National Theater railway station, which makes it convenient for getting to/from the airport via Flytoget, the airport express train.

"Great hotel, wonderful staff and good neighborhood"
Elegant, well maintained hotel with history in city center. Food in restaurant and bistro very good, including the buffet breakfast. Staff and particularly concierge friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. There is a city park directly across the street, so if there are special events, especially in June and July with the midnight sun, expect noise until midnight if your room is on that side of the hotel. I had a large room on the inside overlooking the skylight roof of the restaurant, and it was very nice and quiet.

"Friendly helpful staff and concierge. Great hotel"
I was in an upgraded room facing the inner atrium above the roof of the restaurant. The room was spacious, elegant and comfortable. The bed was as comfortable as any bed I've ever slept on, and my son and his partner said the same about their bed. Their room was directly facing the street in front of the hotel, and there was a very loud gay pride celebration in the park across the street every night until exactly midnight. I could not hear any of the noise from the partying in the park. A really well-kept, old school grand hotel. I highly recommend it.

"Grand Hotel, but..."
The Grand is truly grand: location, staff and amenities fit the bill. Note for CPAP users--if you book the Ladies Floor, ask for an extension cord in advance as the only way to turn off all lights is with the master switch which also kills power to every outlet in the room except the TV. This also impacts charging your digital devices. On the weekend, the bars close at 3 AM. Also note that bars open their storefronts in warmer weather allowing the noise from concert-volume rock bands to bounce off the beautiful stone streets and buildings. No one sleeps in the city center until the bars close their doors for the night. Great for partiers; not so great for hotel guests. Too bad, as the Grand is outstanding.

Dear Jim R, Thank you for your kind and detailed feedback from your stay here at The Grand Hotel. I am truly pleased to see that you found the location and the staff as perfect. Your comments in regards to the noise from bars in the weekend are true. Therefore, we are now in close dialogs with our neighbours around the building to achieve a better sleeping sound level in the weekends for our guests. This is unfortunately one of the downsides of having such as central location in downtown Oslo. We are looking forward to host you again here at The Grand, and thank you again for your 5-star rating Jim! All the best, Christoffer N, Social Media Coordinator

"Historic hotel - nice rooms - incredible breakfast"
Spent 3 nights in January. An old historic hotel, but room was totally updated and very nice. In the process of updating elevators, but didn't seem to be a problem. I had a "Superior" room on the top floor, which had a small balcony on the side street. I could see the royal palace above the hotel across the street, but I'm sure lower floors didn't really have a view other than that building. Great location in the heart of the city, central to everything. Top notch extensive breakfast buffet, even had extras like waffles and crepes with all the toppings in their huge main restaurant. Very possibly the best hotel breakfast I've ever had, and included in the room price. All in all, very impressive and a fun place to stay.

"Great hotel with old infrastructure?"
Generally a nice hotel, probably the nicest location in Oslo of all of the hotels. A historical hotel, though it is slightly dated. Spa was awesome as well (one of the few hotels in Oslo that has one). My main issue with the hotel was the wifi which was free but extremely slow and disconnecting from time to time so not the most productive hotel to be in from that point.

"Great location, good hotel."
Hotel is in a great location on KarlJohanns, it can be a little noisy at night due to the bars nearby. The room was comfortable and you can tell it is an older hotel. Can hear the groaning noises from the plumbing when the people used the shower in the room above ours. Also the bathroom is outdated and needs a modern upgrade. The shower is cramped and there is no door to prevent water from soaking your entire bathroom floor. Also there was noticeable mold on the tile grout. The breakfast buffet at the Grand Cafe is included and it is outstanding! Great room and great food. I would stay again and ask to make sure I have a more modern bathroom if possible.

"Majestic hotel in the heart of the bustling Oslo"
Loved the grand feel of this hotel. The room for my family of 4 was the most spacious in our 2 weeks across Norway. It was perfect and we did not want to leave. As for being Americans, we loved the breakfast inclusion of fresh made omelets, waffles and pancakes since we had grown sick of traditional Norwegian breads and smorgasbords every other morning. The location is also great - right on Karl Johann street with a great sidewalk café for dining and across the street from a park where you can sit and people watch for hours. Location is also only about a 5 block walk to harbor area which is so beautiful and renovated to be completely modern and with fabulous dining options....very trendy and chic.

The hotel is old, and not in a charming way, in a run-down sort of way. It could really use some new carpet, a fresh coat of paint, and a more user friendly layout. The bed, on the other hand, was comfortable and the breakfast was fine. The location was great.

The Grand Hotel is an apt description for the hotel. Everything about it was delightful, although it is a little past its prime which actually adds to its charm. The only complaint we had was that we had an inside room the first night which had an unappealing view; we changed rooms for the second night to an outside room, and the view was much better even though the room was a bit noisier. The breakfast was great as was the breakfast/dining room.

"A Perfect Ending"
Oslo was the final stop on a fantastic trip through Scandinavia. And our stay at The Grand Hotel was the perfect place to end it. The hotel exuded European charm and efficiency. Even while undergoing renovations, they have managed to do so without any inconvenience to their guests. We had a spotless, newly and tastefully renovated, balcony room facing Karl Johansgate, Oslo's main street. This is a perfect location and walking distance to all of the cities attractions. The help was courteous and efficient with particular kudo's to Thomas who assisted us with luggage, directions and other matters in a professional, warm and friendly manner. He is a gem! The breakfast was lovely as were the meals in other dining areas. I recommend this hotel highly. A wonderful stay!

Third time to Oslo-2d time at the Grand.What a great hotel right in the middle of the best of Oslo.We had asked for a room with a view when we reserved the room several months ago and they fulfilled our request with a room (604) with a great view. The check-in was flawless and the hotel staff was very helpful and pleasant.Of particular note-we had asked for an early (05:30) wake up to get to the airport. The wake up call to the room occurred on time but also the desk attendant personally came to our room to make sure we were up. Now, that shows the kind of service a 5* hotel provides..If in Oslo again we will stay there.

"The Edvard Munch's choice in Oslo"
It's been there a while (Edvard Munch patronized the cafe) and it's been modernized. It's also central. The Fly Busen from Gardermoen airport stops at the back of the hotel and the tram to the Viking Ship Museum (go!) is across the park in front. Like many Norwegian Hotels it's expensive. It is claimed that Munch was inspired to paint "The Scream"in 1893 when he got the bill at the hotel cafe.

"Grand is the name, Good is as good as it gets"
This is the perfectly placed hotel in the heart of Oslo. Former haunt of Ibsen and other people of note. The food venues are very good, and the rooftop bar a winner, but the rooms could use some Grand-ness restored. typical of an old hotel, 20+ coats of paint on the trim, the former grand trimmings, now tin. A very nice place to stay, but the name is more impressive than the experience. Still, somehow I try to stay there every time I'm in Oslo. the location is just Grand.

"Tired -- needs renovation. Great staff/location"
I stayed in two different rooms over the course of a week and while the hotel was in a great location with friendly staff, helpful concierge, and an impressive breakfast, the hotel clearly needs a full renovation to maintain a 4 star (or above) rating. Rooms have lots of physical wear and tear, dated bathrooms, and overwhelming amount of dust and dirt in areas like bathroom ceiling, curtains, and beneath headboard. Hallways are musty.

"Central to all major attractions"
Check-in was fast, efficient, friendly and professional. The hotel is starting to look a little dated, especially the bathroom, but overall it is very clean. There is very little closet space for one, let alone for 2. No iron and ironing board in the room. Not sure if one is available if housekeeping was called. Bathroom amenities were by L'Occitane but limited only to lotion, shampoo, conditioner, bath gel and soap. Wifi was free, fast and easy to access. Room was a little on the small side. The bed was not a U.S. standard double. It was called a double but was a Queen. Hotel is a 5 min walk from the Airport Express Train station. An airport bus also stops nearby (about a 5 min walk too). The rate includes free breakfast, which was fresh, with a large selection, made to order eggs and delicious. However, the selection doesn't change so it can be a little tired if you stay for more than 3 days. Ate dinner at the Grand Cafe, which was delicious but pricy, as everything else in Oslo. Hotel close to shopping, coffee shops, convenient stores, public transportation, theaters, and other tourist spots. Would stay here again.

"Disappointed"
We booked a superior room with the anticipation of our first night in Oslo being a pleasant one at one of the most historic hotels and cafes in Norway. When we arrived in the room, ready for a much needed night of rest after our overseas travel, the music from the bar across the street was booming with loud music. We were moved to a nearby room that was an upgrade and very pleasant. However, we were not told that we would have to move again the next night! Therefore, when we tried the key to the door ready to retire for the night after a long day of seeing the sights on foot, the door would not open. Back to the desk we went again. This time we were moved into a nearby specially decorated room on the "ladies' wing" decorated by a decorator whose aim it must have been to achieve the ugliest and most offensive colors, furnishings, and art imaginable in such a hotel! We literally were sickened by the feel of the room. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful while working with an impossible situation beyond their control. After much waiting, we were moved to another room that was pleasant and quiet. Loved the convenient location, but it goes without saying that we would not recommend it.

This is where the Nobel Peace Prize winners stay and I was excited to stay here! It's right on Karl Johans Gate which is a very-happening street for eating, people-watching, touring and just relaxing. Buses, trams and rail stations are close by. The rooms were big, clean and the beds were nice. Breakfast was really good and they had a large variety of delicious selections. If you get a room that's on the inside (facing the hotel center, remember to draw your curtains. The glass windows are huge, and the one time I opened my room curtains, I saw some private stuff going on in the room facing mine. So be mindful!
