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 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...

We went to Oslo to celebrate our golden wedding as we honeymooned here 50 years ago and The Grand is indeed grand. The foyer, bar and restaurant is very impressive. With our best friends, we had booked two grand deluxe rooms which were at the front of the building overlooking the city. The rooms were nice but with a small...

This is an excellent hotel, synonymous with glamor and luxury. The best part of Oslo, near the center and most attractions. Prestigious building, large, colorful and luxurious rooms. Very polite and helpful staff, and breakfast is one of the best I've seen, offering literally everything and served in a beautiful room. It features an indoor pool, which unfortunately we did...

Grand Hotel was our base whilst we visited Oslo and what a great base it was. You are immediately presented with the stunning lobby area and bar which really sets the hotel apart. Upon arrival we were presented with complications with our booking, where a third party company had booked the wrong month! Martina on reception was absolutely brilliant, she...

I traveled with a colleague for work. Since we didn't book directly through the hotel, I actually had low expectations – I figured they'd put us in small rooms. However, the rooms were very comfortable: mine had a queen bed, sitting area with TV, small desk, and ample bathroom. No view outside, but it was quiet and comfortable. The staff...
