The hotel is still being renovated, so it's difficult to comment... Breakfast was great, overall the service was excellent. The room decor was a bit odd, otherwise a lovely stay

Two stays in two weeks

Would recommend Mon, Aug 24, 2015
Loved the location and history of this Grand Hotel. The stay harkens back to an earlier era. My first stay was two nights and I had a standard double which looked onto an interior courtyard with view of dumpsters down below. Prior to my return visit I asked if I could upgrade to a junior suite which was worth every penny - juliet balcony overlooking the main square in the front of the hotel, very roomy and spacious. Loved the cafe, over 140 years old, but was sad to learn that it was slated to close in the the near future unless a preservation or similar group steps in to save it. Breakfast can get very busy and was surprised one morning to find a line stretching all the way to the lobby to wait for a table. I had a wonderful massage in the spa, but couldn't use the pool due to a filter being out - it was working on my second visit but I didn't have time in the day to return. The gym was small but practical. Overall, I loved the location and the history.

Would recommend Thu, Aug 29, 2013
Excellent location , ideal for sightseeing in Oslo, the room was well furnished You have to ring the hotel in advance to ensure they have a parking slot for the car I did this but when I arrived the garage attendant didn`t have my name on the list. He still managed to accommodate our car. Entry to the car park was scary steep , but thankfully my car hire was a small A1 Great breakfast

Would recommend Thu, May 19, 2011
Great breakfast and good location. Train to airport is about 30min. Very nice rooms and unique lounge on the roof overlooking the city. If Mick Jagger liked it I'm sure you will too.

Nightlife hint

Great local pubs and piano bars. be prepared to pay for drinks though
