"Center of Oslo Hotel"
Clean & large rooms, very friendly staff .. conveniently located in the city center near the harbour and fjords .. very large choice for breakfast including wild norwegian smoked salmon .. 5 stars but 5 star priced
We loved our short visit to Oslo and this special property. The staff were extremely efficient and helpful. We had a beautiful junior suite on the fifth floor with a large terrace, which was a highlight. The attached Theater Café was lovely, and the food very good. It was also a wonderful quick stop for tea and dessert. Will visit again, and certainly return to Hotel Continental
"Overpriced and disappointing"
We checked into this hotel for over a week because it belongs to THE LEADING HOTELS OF THE WORLD hotel group which I am a paid up member. As a member we are supposed to get an upgrade (subject to availability) but no effort whatsoever was made by this hotel to offer an upgrade which is unusual for hotels which belong to LHW. Some of the short comings of this hotel are as follows 1. NO BOTTLED WATER IN ROOMS....I was told to drink water from the bathroom tap as no bottled water would be provided 2. NO TEA AND COFFEE FACILITIES....for the massive amount our room cost this should have been provided 3. BREAKFAST WAS VERY ORDINARY.......No baguettes and the rest was predictable and boring 4. The hotel is undergoing renovation, and the tiles in the shower are dangerously slippery when wet with soap or shampoo.....they need to instal a safety bar inside the shower . I put a towel on the shower floor to avoid an accident. 5. Many of the TV channels that were supposed to be available we're not including Foxtel. 6. Being a very old hotel but nicely renovated, the rooms are small by today's standards. 7. RECEPTION. We're extremely professional, polite, helpful and cheerful.....right up to the level of a High end 5 star international hotel. 8. LOCATION.....Opposite the National Theatre and walking distance to all the sites...very handy and convenient.
We stayed in in June and had dinner at the restaurant. Very accomodating staff personal, very nice and clean room and excellent food at the restaurant. We also had lunch at the Theatercaféen, where the food and atmosphere was great. We will definitely come back again soon
"Good business standard and location"
Friendly staff, good rooms (mostly), very good location. Good bar and restaurant. Excellent for business. Air condition in the rooms struggles to keep low temperature, hence it's too warm during night. Locaiton prevents open windows due to noice.
