I liked this hotel. It's actually in the older part of the Grand Central train station, so one can get to one's train from inside the hotel. Room had everything needed, with some pop art on the walls. Mine was very clean, with a nice modern bathroom. Rooms can be down some rather long hallways, with split levels. Breakfast was...

Room was very expensive and the room was dirty in particular the bathroom, they need to invest in new towels also. Low standard hotel for a high price, it was more like a hostel. The reception staff were very friendly and the location was good.

My wife and I spent the last night of our honeymoon in Oslo. Knowing we wouldn't be arriving into the city until around 7pm if we took the Flam railway, we knew we'd literally be looking for a place to put our heads down for the night when we were searching for a good central hotel online beforehand. The Comfort...

I always try and stay at the Comfort grand central when I'm on business in Oslo. Competitive pricing, friendly staff and perfect location. The breakfast is very good and when the weather is bad its nice to not have to leave the building to get to the train station

I stayed one night and I won't probably stay again. The rooms are very small and not very comfortable. The breakfast is good and the location great, but I felt a bit like staying at an hostel at a large converted factory. The service was good though

Hotel is literally inside the train station but far enough away to be quiet. Charming spot with good service and plenty ample breakfast. We had a small but adequate room right in the square so great people watching. Oslo is super expensive but the price was good for this. Would definitely stay again. Right across from the beautiful opera house

This is a hotel with a perfect location, it shares the central nature of the central train station because it is built into the upper floors of the oldest part of the station. It therefore shares its access to all the public transport as well. The rooms however are quite small, with an oddly generous ensuite bathroom. Having said that...

Steps away from all forms of transportation makes this a perfect location. We had a superior room to get a little more space and it was perfect for the two of us. Beautiful view of the Opera house and water. Nice to have a place to hang clothes and chairs to sit in and admire the view. Very clean, comfortable...

I traveled to Oslo on a full week business trip, and was staying at Comfort Hotel Grand Central. The room was at the 3/4 floor, facing inwards towards Oslo Central Station, and was completely isolated from the noise and stress of the City itself. Big room with good air, comfortable bed and a nice bathroom. The artstyle used throughout the...

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
