Excellent staff and wonderful location. The Bar staff were just amazing and made my time there special.

This hotel has an excellent location with quick access to the waterfront and the train station as well as the bus and tram lines. The Grand Cafe serves an excellent breakfast.

Beautiful hotel right in the middle of Oslo we bought an Oslo pass but I didn’t think that was a good value

We stayed one night, in transit from Bergen to our flight to the US. The hotel was first rate. Within walking distance of the train station. A high quality facility.

We dropped into Norway on National Day! We will never forget our time in Oslo! Thank you Hotel Grand!

Superb location, service, and accommodation. Stay there if you can.

The hotel is now the crown jewel of Oslo. Gorgeous rooms and common areas.

Definitely stay here if you're coming for the holidays. It is an awesome location and the people are nice. However, I asked for a superior room for weekend of New Years. Booked it way in advance and asked for a room with a view. When we got there, the gal at the front desk politely told me they only had one room available. It was in a far flung part of the hotel over looking a construction site and looked out on to other rooms also in a hole.She did move us from the 4th to the 7th floor. The 4th would've been even more of a hole view I imagine. They have great view rooms by the way. We aren't rowdy, just an old lady mom and 1 quiet kid. Maids dumped laundry bags near our room and left them there all day. A service cart was parked in front of our room for 2 days. I felt like we were in a dungeon all week. They did say maybe they could give me a view of something else for 134 Krone extra per night. Definitely ensure you aren't shuffled off to one of these rooms. No other guests seemed to be in this area all 6 days but us. Creepy.

Loved the hotel and staff. Room was spacious and lovely. Closer was odd however and could not really hold much because there was a wall in it. More importantly the bathroom was very unsafe. Tub was very slippery and there was no mat to guard against falls. And one has to climb into and out of the tub with no rail to hold on to. The tub is high off the floor. Finally there was a terrible smell coming from the drain in the floor which we had to ask the hotel to fix immediately. There was definitely something wrong with the drainage. Our room was on the 6th floor of the hotel.

This is a first class hotel. The staff was extremely helpful in orienting us in Oslo. The receptionist greeted us warmly. If you are driving make sure to see the garage attendant's classic 1960s Ford.

I had a business trip in December. This hotel is very conveniently located.
