“Best hotel in Oslo”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Great hotel in all respects. Great food, great atmosphere, nice room, comfortable bed, quiet and very good location. I would gladly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Oslo. The price is marginally higher than the cheap hotels, but here you actually get good value for money. Not the regular rip off that you usually get in Norway, where we tend to over price everything.

Nice hotel, lobby is full of dark leather furniture really ornate feel. A pastry station is on one side.
Breakfast here was best we had all over Denmark and Norway. Service is in equally richly carved wood, old style elegance.
Room was first rate.
Bathroom has the high step over common all over Scandanavia but well done.

Room Tip: Street rooms have views

If you like charles dickens christmas stories, you found your spot to sleep. Chandeliers, brass ornaments, wood panneling, antiques, its all there....
In oriental classic style decorated hotel in centre of Oslo. All mayor attractions in walking distance.
Rooms are surprisingly comfortable and maintained. However the shower/bath room is a slam in your face. The L'Occitaine showergel, handwash and shampoo compromise this fact a very little bit.
Breakfast is extended, how ever its ikea style; which means take everything your self. You do not have to screw the table together but for the rest of it, you are busy scrambeling everything together. In a hotel like this, one would expect a higher level of service.

If you are going to this hotel, you are choosing atmosphere!

Room Tip: The cheepest rooms are not well decorated, go for the level above or higher.

Nice people, nice rooms, nice atmosphere.... GREAT place!!
If you are in Oslo, do make a stop here, even if its just for the bar or restaurant in the hotel.
Loved it, plain and simple.
The people here made me feel right at home, the relaxed atmosphere made me want to stay longer, i wish i had. :)

From the moment you enter this hotel you know are in THE classic grand hotel of Oslo. The lobby, bar and restaurant are so stylish. Great place for a drink, dinner or a high tea. Rooms are of an average size. Classic furniture but well maintained and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast is great and offers lots of fresh products like homemade smoothies and vitamine shots. Location right in the heart of Oslo.

This was my first time to Oslo and the Bristol was a great place to stay. My meetings were right across the street in mid-town Oslo so it was prefect for that. Over and above that, the Bristol is a good location for enjoying this walkable city. From here, I walked to the financial district, the pier, City Hall and numeorus restaraunts that are located close by. This hotel offers all the services including dependable internet, English TV, responsive room and laundry service. The Lobby bar is very enjoyable, warm and inviting. The grill is very good as well. Th breakfast included in the room fee was outstanding and the service personnel were very responsive and friendly. Only disappointment was the gym. It is a bit small with very little in the way of work-out gear. That aside, I would defenitely stay here again next time I'm in Oslo.

Hotel Bristol is a great hotel located right in the center of the city. Decoration of the hotel is impressive. It feels like you are entering a different decade, back in the 20s! Rooms are very comfortable. Service is very good. Not to forget that breakfast is very rich!!
Hotel Bristol is a right choice for your staying in Oslo :)
