"Nice staff, decent breakfast, weird rooms"
Stayed here for 2 nights just before Christmas. The staff were fine, the breakfast was fine but the layout of the room was weird, with no outside window. The place is a little shabby and could do with a refurb. The location is good, and the price was pretty competitive for such an expensive destination.
Nice view, really good beds. And funny with the bathtub in the room. We stayed one night. Wanted breakfast in the room, witch was diffucult for the receptionstaff to arrange. But it turner out fine after all.
"Very good hotel!"
Nice, quiet hotel with very good location. Clean rooms. Delicious and various breakfast. Good bar on the top of the roof with barbecue. Nice staff. The perfect city hotel for exploring the attractions in Oslo. Only 10 minutes by walk to the main street.
"Not up to Standard"
For the rate of the room, there were some fundamental necessities that were non existent. In the incredibly tight bathroom, there was no place to hang your towel nor was there an accessible mirror. The only mirror that we could access was the small shaving mirror. The black out curtains were split up into three and did not span the entire width of the window meaning light would stream into the room. The fountain shower head provides a heavy and narrow stream of water which is quite uncomfortable to stand under. Whilst an alternative was offered in the way of a hand held shower, it was very dirty around the nozzle heads which deterred me from using it. This in addition to the toilet having the remains of the last guest's deposits unflushed upon my check in would suggest not enough care is taken when cleaning the rooms. For a US$190 a night room, you would expect a lot better.
"Nice building, some facilities missing"
Grims Grenka is a design hotel with a very nice structure and building. My stay was pleasant. However, I would have appreciated a sauna, a bar (no bar tender during my stay), and a restaurant. In general, the hotel needs more attention to details.
