The hotel has a great location, and it is hard to beat. The builiding is an old traditional building in the middle of where it happens. Unfortunatly the hotell has taken the opportunity to take too many shortcuts, and there are plenty of incovnenience in the rooms, in the ironing room, the gym, and the reception seems give the impression...

The hotel was in a very central location and transportation hub. The rooms were clean and quiet providing excellent sleep quality. The breakfasts lacked the range and diversity found in the other Norwegian hotels visited.

Hotel is fine - even though it is a bit worn down. Especially in the corridors of the hotel. Rooms are small, but they have what you need for a short stay. Breakfast good with a wide selection of different things. Location is excellent and was the reason for me to choose this hotel - It is right in the...

Centrally located next to the train station and in the heart of the city. Friendly staff and a various spread for breakfast. Although rooms are cramped, it is clean and updated and everything you need for a short stay.

This hotel is in the remodelled head building of the old Oslo central train station. The new train station is right next door - you don't even have to go outside to reach the hotel from the train, although the route is a bit hard to figure out the first time. You walk right through a restaurant in the old...

Nice atmosphere beside the central station in Oslo. The employees have a very positive attitude and you really feel welcome to interact with them. I recommend and would definitively return, if I had a chance.

Great location (right in / by the central station). We were doing the 'Norway in a nutshell' train journey and fjord trip leaving at 6.25am so this hotel was perfect. Easy from the airport too - the train takes about 20 mins and then 2 mins walk to the hotel. Rooms quite small, but clean, great shower. All you need....

The best thing about the hotel is its location right next to the main railway station in Oslo. The rooms were very clean but pretty basic and the décor gave a bit of an impression of a prison. It sounds worse that it is. The staff were very good.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What is your time worth? If you know the answer, you'll choose Comfort Hotel Grand Central. We are Oslo's most centrally located hotel. Just three minutes to the airport express – and three minutes to Oslo's main shopping district.We are challenging the traditional model for a business hotel. Ourlocation is outstanding, our cutting-edge facilities are housed in an historic railway building and our prices are excellent.Once in your room the only sound you will hear will be the faint hum of the airconditioning. We have 170 rooms. And 113 of these are unique. Many enjoy views of the opera house or Oslo's bustling main shopping district. Some are inspired by the compact studio apartments of Brooklyn, while others have protected historical significance and many a story to tell. (Norway's first railway track started right at this station.) Interior designer Lars Helling describes the look he has created as "industrial shabby chic". We'll treat you to a free breakfast in our restaurant where you can enjoy our homemade strawberry jam and fresh bread. The man in charge of our restaurant is celebrity chef Ole Johnny Eikefjord, of Eik Annen Etage fame. He dishes up what may be the best bolognese in Oslo – andgives you the right Barbera to go with it. And if you're only after a quick business lunch, you are welcome to order a half portion. But if you have more time, feel free to compose your own three-course menu.Enjoy the food while you imagine the bustling railway concourse in 1854: travelers hugging their loved ones, children smiling and laughing from the trainwindows, and steam trains snorting into life.Whether it's early in the morning or later in the day, many of our guests enjoy working out. Our training suite is compact, but very well equipped. And it's open 24/7,so you can go at it whenever you like.We tell our guests that they save an hour by staying so close to the airport express. That's an hour you can spend however you like. A workout? A beer with an old friend? Or perhaps you'll make an earlier plane so that you can kiss your children goodnight. It's up to you.If you are looking for elegant and efficient hotel, Comfort Hotel Grand Central is the easy choice. ... more   less
