Thisis one of those hotels that provide a "traditional" hotel experience. Right from the check-in, you are warmly welcomed and made at home. The rooms have all modern conveniences, but also all the charm of a Grand Hotel of Yesteryear. White marbled bathroom with quality brand-name toiletries; a perfect bed with lots of pillows and a perfectly sound-proofed room to...

We had a great weekend experiance at this hotel, but this time we got a very small room - så small that we did not think it was possible at this hotel :-) But Oslo this weekend including Cup-final in football was a very pleasent experiance.

Firstly the doors to the rooms open outwards into the hallway! If anyone knows why please respond? The bathroom was tiny, needed to manoeuvre the bathroom door in order to get into the room. The room is well equipped and they sent up a kettle when needed. The bed was not comfortable and the windows are dangerous as they open...

Your stay in Oslo will definetly benefit from visiting Continental. Excellent and service minded staff, nice rooms, central location etc. There is also Theatercafeen, a cafeteria rich on tradition. I missed a coffe machine or a water boiler in my room but that´s the only minus thing I could find at this top notch hotel.

Located right outside the National Theater train station, it is very easily accessible. They were nice enough to give me an early check in and a late check out. The room was small, but sufficient for a single traveler and very well appointed. The room had a great view of the busy street below as well as the national theater....

Nice hotel in the centre of Oslo, with a good location. Here on a business trip. My room was small and a bit basic, although it had a very comfortable bed! Last time I stayed here my room was amazing - bright, airy and felt more luxurious. Speak to reception and ask for a refurbished room!

Dear PJ Jain. Thank you for your nice feedback regarding Hotel Continental and our good location. A lot of our guest really appreciate how easy it is to get around from our hotel.
