"Love this place!"
We've stayed here many times and our latest stay was just as good as the others. This "grand old hotel" brings you back to a different time. And of course, it's in the center of town, close to everything. Our experience is that each room is "quirky." This time, the room was somewhat narrow, in an "L" shape with another bed around the corner. Each time we go we get a different and unique room. They have done some renovations to the lobby and I'm not sure Iike it. Putting a modern spin on something historic doesn't work for me. I prefer keeping the old, crusty "whatever it was" and throwing another coat of paint on it. Only a minor irritation though, not something that would prevent me from staying there again. The staff is great too. Crisp, formal, and accommodating. And very tolerant of English speaking guests who know little or no Norwegian. The food is great as they have the normal Norwegian "delicacies" (which I don't care for) as well as other selections. Just one reminder. If you come in on the Express train from Gardemoen airport to Oslo South, get off at the National Theatre station. The walk isn't bad. If you get off at Oslo S, take a cab. The walk from Oslo S is doable but their are cobblestones almost the whole way.
"Grand in all aspects"
I have stayed here a few times on business trips, and it has always been a plessure. I have no complaints at all. But I praise the beds, the best hotel beds ever. I would like to have one like this at home as well. And the pool was cool as well. :)
"Grand Hotel-Superb Service-Great Location"
Certainly a Grand hotel, in the heart of the city center. If you are taking public transportation from the airport, bus or train, it is about a two block walk to the hotel. The hotel is grand and beautiful with a gourmet restaurant, cafe and rooftop bar. The service was excellent to five star standards. The only downside were the rooms, which were very small with windows facing more walls. We had double rooms but I suppose if you were to book a deluxe double or suite it would be more spacious.
I stayed one night at Grand recently. Loved it. Great rooms, nice and soft beds, nice and friendly staff. Great breakfast and lunch at the hotel. I can highly recommend it. A very luxury hotel. I would love to go back.
"what a location!"
the hotel is excellent! the location is specially good! you can take a train right from the airport and drop off at about 100m from the hotel. The staff is friendly, there are restaurants everywhere near it and shopping centers and all kinds of stores. I had been to Oslo once before and hadn't had a good impression. Now, thanks to this exquisit location, beautifull building and accomodation in general, I totally would go back several times to Oslo. It was my husband's birthday and I secretly asked the concierge for a cake in our room early on his birthday, what a beautifull cake and , my gosh, could they be better' Loved it!
