“A little pricey, but worth it”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Basically, I came to stay here after running away from a hostel because it didn't feel safe (Sentrum Pensjonat...look it up, it was really something), and I thought it was great!
The lady at reception was lovely, really friendly and helpful, even though I came running in at 7pm (probably looking pretty ruffled and disreputable), and whilst it wasn't the cheapest, I thought just over £100 for an on-the-spot booking really wasn't that bad (especially not for Oslo).
Room was not huge (but not cramped), but clean and nicely designed. The free wifi was fast, the bedwas comfy and the shower was good. The breakfast was absolutely awesome.
Overall a really nice place :)

Perfect location. Very Nice staff. Rooms are wide and clean. The perfect option in Oslo. 2 minutes walking from the Opera and central station. Breakfast complete, varied and delicious. Do not miss the scrambled eggs and the bacon, both are superb! The Italian restaurant of the hotel is a very good option for dinner. I had a delicious pasta there. If I ever come back to Oslo this hotel will be with no doubt my option. It will not disappoint you.

The hotel has a great central location and serves a nice breakfast buffet but that's it. It goes downhill from there. Tiny 90-cm-wide beds. One pillow per bed - it's your problem if you need a second one! And no fridge in the rooms! That's for well over US$ 200 a night.

We chose this hotel because of its location, (right next to the railway station) and also very close to the harbour and city centre. It is certainly convenient if you are arriving and/or leaving by train. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was fine and quirkily decorated. The included breakfast is more than adequate. It represents quite good value in an expensive city.

Room Tip: The area to the East of the railway station, ie away from the Harbour, is quite seedy and probably b...

This hotel has the best location in Oslo and whilst it is undergoing some extensive renovations, the rooms were quiet and large. The included breakfast was extensive and good quality. The wifi was fast. The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. For Norwegian standards this hotel represents good value for money.

We were in Oslo for few days and would like to stay in a hotel that is of good location. Thus, we choose Comfort Hotel Grand Central.

The location is really good. Just right above the central train station. The hotel is located in the shopping area also. It is really very convenience.

The service of the hotel staff are very good too. Room is clean and bed is comfortable. The breakfast spread are good. They use organic ingredients.

I will stay in Comfort Hotel Grand Central again.

I loved that this hotel was next to the train station. Rode the train from the airport and walked around the corner to the hotel. Perfect. Front desk was super friendly...Had a good sized room (2 twins) over-looking the Opera House. Large bathroom had a shower and separate tub. It looked to me that these rooms were just refurbished. Breakfast was great. There is plenty of food to fill you up. Walked to the Palace grounds and City Hall. (20 min) Area is under construction and lots of transportation traffic, but that didn't bother us. Our room had double windows which muffled a lot of the noise.

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
