The location is great, a huge central park is in front, most sights are nearby or close, the central station is walking distance. The hotel is huge, so do not expect personal treatment or rooms for your personal preference. My grand deluxe double room faced an inner courtyard, not very big either, on a lower floor, it could have been...

We only stayed one night in the Grand Hotel so we didn't have time to explore all the amenities the hotel had to offer, but based on our limited exposure to one of the best hotels in Oslo I can safely say that we will absolutely come back again! The location of the hotel couldn't be better. Located on Karl...

We had two rooms, one overlooking the square at the front which was more traditional and quite noisy. The second was at the back facing a nondescript courtyard which had contemporary furnishing and was very quiet. Both were deluxe rooms and had Nespresso machines and a seating area. Service in the hotel is very good and is perfectly located for...

How can I start ? As soon as I stepped in I realize I was somewhere specially historic where significant moments took place. The name is appropriate: Grand. Nonetheless it is not only that; The Grand is sophisticated in a warm way that will make you relax and forget about the world outside. There is so much art everywhere. Note...

This hotel really lives up to its name! Right in the heart of Oslo, you literally walk out of the front door right onto Karl Johan's Gate and easy walking distance of most of the sights and the main shopping area. The hotel looks newly refurbished and the rooms are well appointed with pleasing decor and soft furnishings. The lobby...

Nice hotel. Very good service. The hotel room was clean and nicely decorated. It is in the heart of Oslo with the absolute best address. We tried the spa and the restaurant and we had a great time. We will absolutely visit the hotel again.

The attention to detail, historic pictures and memorabilia, and location in the heart of Oslo make staying here an unforgettable experience. If you can't stay, at least have a meal in the dining room where you can see pictures of the presidents, celebrities, and historic figures who have stayed here. The breakfast buffet provided a wide variety of choices for...

Excellent location, just in the front of the park, 5 minute walk from national teathre station to come from airport, nice warm spa, steam and dry sauna well working, small friendly pool. Fantastic breakfast, little old fashion but clean and quiet rooms. WiFi on 80%. Friendly staff. Will come again!

A very smart hotel - comfortable inside and grand outside. My room was very nice and I liked being to open the window. Good view of the square at the front. Bed was good as were bathroom facilities. Staff friendly.
