    Entrance, breakfast and swimming facilities are excellent. Located centrally, easy connection to airport.

    Small room in a narrow corridor. No view at all from the window.

    Great location and lobby however the rooms were slightly better than average.... as the price was well above average (perhaps that's just Norway?) it's not really a value for money option.

    Central location, smoking rooms available, close to business partners,good sortiment of food for breakfast, nice rooms, pleasant staff.

    Located in the heart of the city, excellent breakfast, and cafe. The hotel and the hotel staff make a terrible impression and does not correspond to the category of 4 stars. Interior design and rooms look like decaying and decrepit. This room is not safe. Did not work the lock on the door, the light in the room blinked as a signal from a police car. Draining the water in the sink and bathtub almost did not work. Especially need to ask for bathrobes and slippers. Staff indifferent. Dirty, cramped and dusty, fitness center, there is no soap in the shower. The overall impression is very bad.

  • Group of friends

    The location of the hotel is superb. We enjoyed the grandure of the historical aspect of the hotel's origins. The decoration in the main areas was very grand and eye catching. The Grand Cafe was a lovely setting for breakfast which offered excellent variety and high quality. Our bedroom was a good size with a balcony and a good aspect.

    The room was however, a bit tired in it's finishings. The hotel refurbishment work was disturbing when hammering, drills and deliveries of wood etc made significant noise at 7.00am each morning. This was a disapponting aspect. Staff made no enquiry as to how we enjoyed our stay which would have given the opportunity to give immediate feedback. Enjoyable overall.

    Wonderful location with historical atmosphere cozy and classygreat place to pamper yourself

    Room 207 curtains were so thin and light was coming in

  • Older travelers

    Receptionists were very busy, so we had to wait a while to check in / check out. Inadequate lighting in the bathroom, and there were several light bulbs in the suite that did not work.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    For that price range the room was very Basic. Bathroom shower tiles were very moldy and unpleasant looking.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    The rooms are very small. Check-in takes a lot of time. When I came to my room in the afternoon, the door wasn't closed, it was opened. Possible, housekeeping didn't close it after cleaning the room.

  • Family with children

    Excellent breakfast served on the ground floor with a view to the main parade street in Oslo - Karl Johan.The location is excellent, wether yiu want to go shopping or sightseeing.

    As an old hotel it needs redecoration, and that is done, but in some of the rooms I have stayed in it does not seem quite finished. E.g a cupboard has been moved, and holes left and not painted, or tiles are left with holes because a peg or something has been removed. If ot had been my home, it would not have been like that, it seems the handyman has left without finishing the redecoration.

  • Single

    Helpfulness of staff and location.

    My "superior" room was not as nice to what I usually get at The Grand. Two small double beds instead of a queen size; bathroom was not as nice; the room seemed worn.

  • Family with children
    4.2

    The location

    there has gone a lot of things wrong for us at the grand hotel unfortunately. there has not been room cleaning the whole weekend. the video system dind't work proper and this could not be solved. the spa we couldn't make use of with our 2 1/2 year old, because he should be 3 years. unfortunately they could only inform us about this after we were dressed in our bading suits. the hotel staff wasn't very cooperating.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    They were accommodating and very helpful in making out stay memorable...

  • Family with children
    9.6

    We had a newly remodeled comfortable room with a fabulous view onto the main square. The breakfast buffet was amazing.

    Our teenagers had a second room that had not been remodeled. It was tired and worn although still comfortable, with a terrible view onto a side street.
