Good hotel close to all aspects of Oslo. Rooms a little small but very functional. Bed very comfortable. Even though sits on top of the train station the rooms are very quiet. Great breakfast and friendly staff.

This hotel couldn't be much more central, positioned literally right next to the main railway station and a stroll to the Opera House. The rooms though are very small, very few have any real view / direct outside light which the hotel seeks to offset with funky wall art etc. Service is good and the hotel clean.

The location can't be beat. The airport train took me right from the terminal building to the hotel in Oslo Central Station. The city trains are right outside, but I didn't need them because hotel is within walking distance to mostly everything, particularly the shops and restaurants at Karl Johans Gate. The hotel's free breakfast is fantastic. The room was...

Price range: High, even for Oslo. Location: Good. Room: Very small and cramped. Room temperature was hot, but even with thermostat turned alle the way down it did not help. The ventilation system could not have been working properly due to heavy and low circulating air. Window could not be opened. Bathroom window did not have any curtains or screens,...

We stayed here our first night in Norway and again on our last night. The location cannot be beat! We took the Flytoget from the airport and found the hotel quickly. We arrived early in the morning, and while they didn't have rooms available yet, they were happy to store our luggage so we could get out and start exploring...

Just stayed at this hotel, not too impressed with the rooms. The hallways are long and confusing and my single room was small and with a broken temperature regulator. I didn't alert the staff since I got to the hotel so late, just put on some more clothes and slept.The breakfast was ok, nothing too fancy. I like that you...

This is not a good place to stay. No tea and coffee in the room, internet intermittent. Tea and coffee only at reception, and no decaf coffee, nor any milk at 21:00 hours. No sign outside our room stating the room card required to lock the door. However girl at reception desk was very nice!

The room was a nice size. The location connected to central station was ideal plus it's right in the heart of downtown. The breakfast was good. Excellent by american hotel standards. Some of my colleagues stayed at a slightly cheaper hotel and their rooms were half the size. I plan on staying here again.

Very small, cold room,not enough towels,poor toiletries, no mini bar and of course no room service. Small bed in the corner very unconfotable. Is a unite busy hotel and at breakfast time is quite estrefull as the area is small.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What is your time worth? If you know the answer, you'll choose Comfort Hotel Grand Central. We are Oslo's most centrally located hotel. Just three minutes to the airport express – and three minutes to Oslo's main shopping district.We are challenging the traditional model for a business hotel. Ourlocation is outstanding, our cutting-edge facilities are housed in an historic railway building and our prices are excellent.Once in your room the only sound you will hear will be the faint hum of the airconditioning. We have 170 rooms. And 113 of these are unique. Many enjoy views of the opera house or Oslo's bustling main shopping district. Some are inspired by the compact studio apartments of Brooklyn, while others have protected historical significance and many a story to tell. (Norway's first railway track started right at this station.) Interior designer Lars Helling describes the look he has created as "industrial shabby chic". We'll treat you to a free breakfast in our restaurant where you can enjoy our homemade strawberry jam and fresh bread. The man in charge of our restaurant is celebrity chef Ole Johnny Eikefjord, of Eik Annen Etage fame. He dishes up what may be the best bolognese in Oslo – andgives you the right Barbera to go with it. And if you're only after a quick business lunch, you are welcome to order a half portion. But if you have more time, feel free to compose your own three-course menu.Enjoy the food while you imagine the bustling railway concourse in 1854: travelers hugging their loved ones, children smiling and laughing from the trainwindows, and steam trains snorting into life.Whether it's early in the morning or later in the day, many of our guests enjoy working out. Our training suite is compact, but very well equipped. And it's open 24/7,so you can go at it whenever you like.We tell our guests that they save an hour by staying so close to the airport express. That's an hour you can spend however you like. A workout? A beer with an old friend? Or perhaps you'll make an earlier plane so that you can kiss your children goodnight. It's up to you.If you are looking for elegant and efficient hotel, Comfort Hotel Grand Central is the easy choice. ... more   less
