I was looking for a new hotel to constantly come back to as I visit Oslo often, so I decided to go with this hotel after filtering the best hotels on a booking site. Upon arrival I was greeted by a friendly receptionist who booked me into my room and everything at first was smooth. I booked my dinner at the grill restaurant and the food was good and the waiter who was serving me (Leo) was exceptionally amazing! He deserves 5 stars all the way. However, things took a very ugly turn as I went back to my room which was located near the laundry room and they left the door open as the towels were getting dried. Few minutes later after the drying stopped and after a long day at work all I wanted was a good night sleep, but to my surprise there was this loud humming generator noise from the outside of my window, and it kept going on and on all night long. It was nearly midnight and I had already unpacked, so to call the staff and ask them to change my room was useless because I am staying in for one night; they did give me ear plugs but they didn’t cancel the loud noise. I slept at 4 am after feeling exhausted and It was honestly a horrible experience. The hotel overall has a very nice look and aesthetically beautiful. Spacious rooms and friendly staff (Especially the night shift team). But unfortunately they either have to put sound proof windows or simply avoid checking in people in that particular spot where they know it’s loud.

Dear abrahamziadhughes, Thank you very much for taking the time to write us a review, we truly appreciate the feedback. First of all I am pleased to see that you found our staff friendly and helpful, they strive to provide top service every day. It is a shame to see you did not have a good experience with the noise in the room at night. My apologies that the proposal about changing the room was not satisfying. I can assure you that we will take this further to find out what the reason for the noise was. I do hope we get the pleasure of welcoming you back to Hotel Bristol in the future. If you do decide to visit us again please email me at live.lorck@bristol.no so that I can make sure you will have a better experience with us. Best regards, Live Lorck Front Desk Manager Hotel Bristol

If in Oslo some time, stay at Bristol. It is an upper class experience in return for no more than just mid range expenses. Centrally located in the midst of Oslo town, they offer a nice and professionally spotless service. You are likely to afford it. You are surely to enjoy it. The best stay in town.

We booked our high tea via the website. It was my first time and it was great. Enough tea. A good alternative for lunch or afternoon activity. The waiter was friendly and service was quick. You get what you pay for. It is worth every euro. We enjoyed it!!
