We have stayed at the Grand Hotel 4 times as well as other hotels in Oslo. The Grand is the best. First time was 1978. The excellent quality & friendly service has not changed.

Whilst in one of the smaller rooms, there is a level of care and comfort that you would hope for. There is a conservative grandeur to this hotel, service to match. It is perfectly located. If there on business the WiFi is just about OK but patchy.

Located on Carl-Johans Gate, everything is close to the Grand, situated in a historic building. I did have better rooms in this hotel and not everything is in perfect condition. Anyhow, the house is charming, well decorated and staff always delivers good service. Entrance hall has recently been renovated and so did the Grand Café, which is worth a visit...
