The Hotel Bristol gives you a warm welcome from the reception onwards. It is a very well run hotel with a good atmosphere.There is a good mix of public areas with quiet spots and also convivial areas. The bar is worth a visit

If you have a lunch meeting in Oslo, this is the place. You should not arrive before 11:30 and preferably not stay after 14:00. Thats when it is busy; and it can be fun.

Here sits the Norwegian public and eat tall sandwiches. Classic sandwiches. Smorgosbord. Smoked and cured salmon, beef patty, hand-peeled shrimp with high quality, seasonal sandwishes, and a separate al a carte menu. You order drinks and help Yourself.

I recommend the local apple juice with lots of ice. Perfect! And black coffee after the meal.
If you have room, I recommended the napoleon cake. OMG. perfect, but powerful.

Preferably, you should reserve a table. Good Luck!

Room Tip: Order a table - it can be very busy.

I have stayed at this historic and elegant hotel several times. The historic atmosphere of the entire hotel, the friendly staff and the extravagant breakfast buffet is at the top. My room at the last visit was large (see attached photo), clean and comfortable. The bathroom was small but ok.

The lobby is decorated in classic style with dark wood chairs (see attached photo) and large paintings on the walls. There is a coffee shop towards the back of the lobby and also a bar area. The grill is very good as well. The WiFi is free but limited to about 1 MB (you have to pay extra for higher speed).

The staff is always very friendly.

Regards
Svein-Magne Tunli from Norway

I spend two nights at Bristol Hotel. First impression is that the hotel was totally british-like, which I enjoyed a lot.Arriving from airport was quite easy using the Flybussen ( a stop is about 100 m from the hotel entrance). The rooms are decorated as well as a British flavour. toiletry Ammenities are basic ( soap, shampoo, gel wash). No supplies for coffee or tea. Mini Bar has automatic charge ( so no cheating with later replace the beverage you took). Breakfast buffet was really good. Specially enjoyed finding watermelon and also a chef preparing eggs a la carte!.a Lobby Very quiet in the morning.. really full at the evening - specially in a rainy Oslo. Staff kind and servicial. ( as I happen to find in all Norway). Centrally located, I could easily walked to some of the touristic spots. I really enjoyed it.

We stayed 4 nights (end of Feb) at the Bristol. It was a lovely hotel and full of warmth and charm. Our room was beautiful, clean and quite comfortable by US standards. The lobby is constantly busy with people having drinks and/or High Tea. The bar is also a fun place to hang out. Breakfast was both elaborate and delicious. There is a great beer pub/restaurant directly across the street which we highly recommend.
