The breakfast buffet was great, fantastic food and absolutely lovely personnel. People at the reception not doing their best as much as in the restaurant. The room must have been really very nice a few years ago, but the interior is no longer what it used to be. All in all a bit too expensive for what you get.

This hotel pretends to be modern and well designed. But it not a nice place to stay. The room I stayed in was not cleaned properly, the interior felt tired and the hotel just feels like a standard boring hotel chain.

I loved the cozy lobby and the modern room. The breakfast buffet was awesome - love the Norwegian waffles especially. The bathroom was small but had a heated floor and great toiletries - and a rain shower. The bed was really great and the lighting was nice. The hotel had a cool rooftop bar - not open during the winter...

Stayed here for 2 nights just before Christmas. The staff were fine, the breakfast was fine but the layout of the room was weird, with no outside window. The place is a little shabby and could do with a refurb. The location is good, and the price was pretty competitive for such an expensive destination.

Nice, quiet hotel with very good location. Clean rooms. Delicious and various breakfast. Good bar on the top of the roof with barbecue. Nice staff. The perfect city hotel for exploring the attractions in Oslo. Only 10 minutes by walk to the main street.

For the rate of the room, there were some fundamental necessities that were non existent. In the incredibly tight bathroom, there was no place to hang your towel nor was there an accessible mirror. The only mirror that we could access was the small shaving mirror. The black out curtains were split up into three and did not span the...

Grims Grenka is a design hotel with a very nice structure and building. My stay was pleasant. However, I would have appreciated a sauna, a bar (no bar tender during my stay), and a restaurant. In general, the hotel needs more attention to details.

You cannot fault this hotel on its location. Very close to the Castle and only a short walk into the shops and restaurants near the harbour. Friendly and helpful staff and cosy beds. However it let itself down on the details. We booked there as we were travelling in winter and wanted a restaurant on site. However despite the website...
