We had a remodeled larger room, which we found very nice. There is a good coffee machine in the room and a very comfortable bed. The room has s very quiet.
Breakfast is very good with a good range of foods. But, we struggled to get service in the cafe downstairs.
Nice hotel in center of Oslo. Close to National Theater. Interior of the hotel is old style. The building is quite old with long corridors and staircases sometimes with not any logic 😄 The room was big and nicely furnished and in good shape. Complimentary coffee, tea and water in the room. Safe box and equipment for ironing in the room. Breakfast was rich and tasty. I can recommend.
Hotel Bristol used to be the very best Oslo had to offer, and it's one of those hotels that merits words like honourable, institution, grand and so on. One of very few in Oslo, I might add.
Nestled right behind it's bigger cousin, Grand Hotel, Hotel Bristol used to be famous for its restaurant, it's serving of afternoon tea, and it's somewhat labyrinthine design. That, and being one of a select few hotels that insisted on keeping the old, continental design, with wall to wall carpeting and so on...
It still does all that, but modernization has reached even this old institution, and the service is simply one step above everything else there is to compare it with. The breakfast is lavish, the rooms all differ and thus comes with personality, and did I mention the staff?
The Bristol isn't cheap, it isn't hip and it isn't "cool". It's something else. It's traditional, in all the RIGHT ways. Traditions becomes just that, because they work and become desired. You will desire another stay at Bristol long after you've left.
