The Grand Central is located in the heart of Oslo. Just outside the hotel you have all the oportunities you need. Either you are looking for a restaurant or if you have to go somwhere. The prices are low and the breakfast gives you a perfect start of the day!

Stayed at this hotel two weeks ago on our 5 day trip to Oslo. Chose this hotel because of the great reviews and the great price….we opted for the pre payment option and saved even more money on each night which was a bonus and made checking in even faster. We arrived at around 10am and check in was not until 3pm…we wanted to have a shower and start exploring the city so we paid 100krone to go to the room straight away…so glad we did, well worth it! Our room was in the roof and we had a quite small room with a slanted ceiling but it was cosy clean and warm which is all we wanted. There was not much of a view from the room just the station but it is surprisingly quiet….we didn't hear any noise at all at night which we expected to considering its central location. Breakfast is great just help yourself to as much food and drinks as you like. The jam is delicious!!! Great lobby area actually a nice place to sit in and help yourself to the tea and coffee in nice take away cups so you can grab one just before you head out! Doesn't take long to get anywhere we just left our room walked less than 5 minutes to get on the train and head out anywhere you can be sledding the korketrekkeren in not much more than half an hour. Amazing!
Lovely hotel and lovely city. I would definitely recommend and will really hope to be returning again one day soon!!!!

Thank you Jennifer! And thank you both for your 5 night stay with us at the Comfort Hotel Grand Central and your top 5/5 rating! I’m sure your detailed feedback is highly appreciated by new readers. Sharing is caring!

Wasn’t the “korketrekkeren “ a crazy experience?! Sledding in the city of Oslo is kind of cool.

I look forward welcoming you both back to my hotel soon as possible. All the best from Oslo.

Best location for hotell if you are by train to/from airport, all public transport right at your feet. Very good breakfast, friendly and attentive personal, great gym and nice rooms. Only one wish, that the lightning could be a bit better.

Location , Breakfast and beds are wonderful. Quiet and peaceful hotel, centrally located. Should have been a little more heat in bathroom. Service-set staff. Recommended for both adults and children. :-)

Since I didn’t have much time in Oslo, I stayed at the Comfort Central Station Hotel ($258) which is right at the train station, so it was an easy decision to take the express train from the airport directly to the Central Station. It took 19 mins and was 170NOK. The train station is undergoing a major renovation so the entrance to the Comfort CS Hotel from the station itself is closed now but they had lots of huge, obvious signage so I went outside the station, around the corner, down some steps and there it was.

Room was fine - good lighting, big armchair, big flat-screen TV, and comfy bed. Big window overlooking the square but didn't hear any street noise. Opened the window initially for fresh air but room wasn't super hot so closed the window for sleeping. Breakfast was in their ground floor restaurant and was fine (no porridge though!) Check in/out was super quick and pleasant.

Thank you for staying with us. I hope you`d a efficient hours in Oslo and a pleasant stay with us.
Good idea, thank you. I`ll consider serving you porridge in the future, meanwhile you still can start your day with homemade scrambled eggs or my favorite, the homemade jam, all served for breakfast from 6am. All customized for you to have a good and efficient hotel stay, in the heart of Oslo. Hope we you again here at the Comfort Hotel Grand Central, in Oslo. Welcome!

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
