Stayed here again after three years and still an all round excellent experience. Smooth check in even though we arrived at around mid day the room was already ready.

Hotel is as central as you would like to be, we got the train from the airport to Oslo Sentrum and walked about 300 metres up Karl Johans Gate to the hotel.

Would stay again if and when I am in Oslo

Room Tip: Get a room facing the square

Grand Hotel is, although old and a bit worn, pretty good. The building is historic, and little have been done to modernize it - if you like authenticity, thats a good thing, but it is so at the cost of more modern comforts. In conclusion, it feels luxurious but a bit old. If you're visiting Oslo as a tourist, the location is great. It's close to major attractions, such as the royal castle, Karl Johan street and great shopping areas. It's easily reachable on foot from the central station, and it's also close to subway stops such as Storinget (the parliament) and Nationaltheateret. While there are a lot of great hotels in Oslo that deserve consideration, going for Grand isn't likely to let you down.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback from the stay with us at Grand Hotel.

The hotel was built in 1874 and during the years we have tried to install equipment in some of our common areas and some rooms. In 2016 we just completed a major renovation including our rooms, suites, facilities, banquet venues and corridors. Personally I think our hotel has been modernized with a fresh look, and compared to how it was before, it certainly a different hotel on the inside.

We are glad to see that you enjoyed the location.

I hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back again.

Best Regards,
Espen H
Social Media Coordinator.

Title should said it all, the hotel is in great location, services were excellent with very attentive staffs. The room is really grand and very comfortable.
Food was great but not cheap (same as any food in Norway!).
The hotel spa on top floor added more pleasure to the evening after work as you can relax in the heated pool.

Room Tip: I have the room facing front street, the noise is not any issue as windows block all the street noise but it has great view of the park.

The Grand is a comfortable hotel in the heart of Oslo. The building and decoration are impressive. Lobby and rooms have recently been renovated and are spacious. After a long wait, The Grand Café will reopen in a few days completing the overall experience again with perfect breakfast and afternoon tea location.

Room was large as a deluxe king, but sparse. No dresser or drawers. Room smelled, they brought up an ozone generator which helped somewhat, but windows had to be kept open when we were there. Would rate 4 star if no smel, 5 star if place to put clothes. lBasically live out of suitcase. Location is superb and convenient to everything. 10min to trains, 5 min to docks.
