Really friendly and efficient reception staff - just as hotels used to be. Room good quality and restaurant food splendid, with an excellent Maître D'. A very convenient location for the theatre and only a short walk from the harbour and boats.

The bar/cafe area was nice with a good selection of snacks and cakes and a relaxing place to sit and people watch. The hotel location is good...

Old style hotel, but thoroughly renovated. The room is somewhat smaller than expected, has walk-out balcony. When we stayed there in late April/May, the rooms was hot and dry and it was somewhat difficult to regulate room temperature. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is a nice breakfast with lot of choices. The location is perfect to do a...

This is an older hotel with updates. Provided a included buffet breakfast. All of the hotel staff spoke clear English which was important to me. I am not sure how they would handle any other langauges.

Very nice hotel. The room was spatious, clean and I really liked the interior decoration. The breakfast and the overall service was good. Central location. Never visited the bar but looked very promising.

Cosy, charming, clean, superb location, and reasonably priced - this hotel has it all. I was on business travel, but took the family along. The location was great - near museums, the harbor, coffee shops, restaurants, etc. Our room was fairly large with a good view. And breakfast was included in the rate - superb. If I ever return to...

My favourite in Oslo. This classic hotel in there center of Oslo offers great value for your money. Excellent breakfast and good rooms. I enjoy the bar in the evenings, easy place for a solo traveller to meet some people.

The Hotel Bristol still retains a bit of the old classic hotel charm, even though it has been acquired by one of the major hotel chains in Norway. The regular rooms are nothing out of the ordinary, aside from sticking to the old fashioned interior design elements of velvet and dark wood. It's the common areas of this hotel that...

We were looking for a hotel that was romantic, and full of European character as we were visiting Oslo for a long weekend from the US. This hotel exceeded my expectations! It was grand and stunning and the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We were greeted with a warm smile as we checked in. We had to ask for...

I have stayed in Bristol 4 times now whilst working in Oslo. Its a charming hotel, well situated in the city and the staff is service minded. I would really recomend the coctail bar on the hotel grounds. Great classical coctails and superb service from the bartenders. Best 4 star hotel in Oslo by a mile.
