Location is great for many purposes. The breakfast was ample and good as well. Our room was not in the main older part of the hotel. On one hand was clean, crisp and modern, but on the other was a two elevator ride from the lobby and a bit confusion, even after a couple of days. For coming in and...

I use this hotel relatively frequently for business travel ...roughly about 6 times year. I recently had a nightmare trip...and I mean nightmare...I was interrupted on my first day of the trip with a medical condition and was confined to the room (unable to move...I know right!) - Part of the time I felt like a bit of a burden...

We were given a room that was a loft. You had to walk up steel staggered uneven steps to get to the bed upstairs. The bathroom was downstairs so if you had to get up in the middle of the night it was dangerous. We changed our room. The hotel is located in a separate part of the train station....

Room with a view over the square and the main shopping, pedestrian street Karl Johan's gate. Surprisingly quiet. Great breakfast with lots of choices, even gluten free choices. If you arrive by express train from airport, head toward the Opera exit but don't exit. Head right down the escalators and then proceed straight ahead almost to he ground floor exit....

Location is this hotel's main attribute. It is adjacent to the central train/bus station in downtown Oslo. The building is old and decrepit, and the room was hardly big enough to walk around the bed. The prices are incredible even for Norway. We did enjoy a good breakfast.

The hotel is in a great location-near opera house and the train station-buses too! Receptionists are helpful and the breakfast is excellent. Room is adequate enough to meet basic needs. Beds are comfortable. Shower only, no tub. Television is large and stations work well. Internet works well. Travel information center is just across the train station terminal where there is...

This is not your typical hotel but frankly, it suited me to a T! What a great location--right in the train station although I entered it from outside and to the left of the station. I booked it because my train arrived at 10:30 pm and was not interested in finding my hotel at that hour. Initially I was skeptical...

The hotel is located in the center of Oslo, next to the rail way station. You can actually walk straight from the train station into the reception desk. The rooms are very clean and have all basic functionalities, they are not very large. The breakfast is very good with a large variety.

Excellent location, easy to reach by train from the airport and you can walk indoors from the railway station to the hotel, clean rooms. No safe or closetd in room. Staff helpful, very good breakfast. Many good restaurants downstairs, two big malls and the famous shopping street next to the hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What is your time worth? If you know the answer, you'll choose Comfort Hotel Grand Central. We are Oslo's most centrally located hotel. Just three minutes to the airport express – and three minutes to Oslo's main shopping district.We are challenging the traditional model for a business hotel. Ourlocation is outstanding, our cutting-edge facilities are housed in an historic railway building and our prices are excellent.Once in your room the only sound you will hear will be the faint hum of the airconditioning. We have 170 rooms. And 113 of these are unique. Many enjoy views of the opera house or Oslo's bustling main shopping district. Some are inspired by the compact studio apartments of Brooklyn, while others have protected historical significance and many a story to tell. (Norway's first railway track started right at this station.) Interior designer Lars Helling describes the look he has created as "industrial shabby chic". We'll treat you to a free breakfast in our restaurant where you can enjoy our homemade strawberry jam and fresh bread. The man in charge of our restaurant is celebrity chef Ole Johnny Eikefjord, of Eik Annen Etage fame. He dishes up what may be the best bolognese in Oslo – andgives you the right Barbera to go with it. And if you're only after a quick business lunch, you are welcome to order a half portion. But if you have more time, feel free to compose your own three-course menu.Enjoy the food while you imagine the bustling railway concourse in 1854: travelers hugging their loved ones, children smiling and laughing from the trainwindows, and steam trains snorting into life.Whether it's early in the morning or later in the day, many of our guests enjoy working out. Our training suite is compact, but very well equipped. And it's open 24/7,so you can go at it whenever you like.We tell our guests that they save an hour by staying so close to the airport express. That's an hour you can spend however you like. A workout? A beer with an old friend? Or perhaps you'll make an earlier plane so that you can kiss your children goodnight. It's up to you.If you are looking for elegant and efficient hotel, Comfort Hotel Grand Central is the easy choice. ... more   less
