A well maintained hotel with a very nice atmosphere. I am a business traveler and really like the more personal hotels, this is that. Good location, nice interior, very nice staff and a bar with a pub feeling. I really like that.

Its really a old building but well maintained. The staffs are excellent and very co-operative. Clean room and bathroom. Excellent toiletries provided. The breakfast is really good. And they offer packed breakfast if you are checking out early

As someone who thoroughly enjoys historical buildings, I loved this hotel. The rooms were modern and comfortable but the hotel boasts lovely historical decor. The breakfast was incredible, so much variety. The hot chocolate in the cafe at the hotel is apparently the best in Oslo. The location is great with everything in walking distance. We also had dinner at...

Nice and quiet room. Clean room, and sympathic personal at the hotel. When I was there it was restauration of the breakfest salon. But anyway, breakfast was excellent on the first floor also. It was also very easy to get taxi nearby the hotel entrance.

Situated one block away from the main street Karl Johan, it is very centrally located, but still on a relatively quiet street. A friendly welcome from the reception staff. The room was nice sized, nice bed, but a slightly soft mattress (at least for me). The chairs in the room are old style, looks nice, but not the best to...

We loved this hotel for its ambience (very old world charm), service and rooms. It's also in a great location - 15 minutes walk from the station and the dock area. The rooms are spacious, belle epoch decor with a modern bathroom. We ate in the restaurant with great food and service. Yes, it is expensive but that's Norway. And...

It's not the first time here but it looks that it's better and better. A newly renovated room this time with all you need. The hotel has that old stylish feeling but the rooms are very good. Localisation is great in a quiet area. Breakfast is great. Loved the orange juice machine.

Classical and comfortable. Good service and great athmosphere. 4 waterholes just whitin 10 m radius. Rooms are well equipt whit good beds, smart tv with access so Netflix and whatever your needs are. Cocaine and ganja is to get just around the corner. A weekend in Oslo might just as well start here as enywhere else.

If you prefer classic hotels in old styles, then Hotel Bristol is for you. You get the grand lobby with the piano bar, lots of heavy carpets and grand staircases. I am a fan of the clean, Scandinavian style that is the complete contrast to Hotel Bristol. But admittedly you can argue that Hotel Bristol has more "soul" than the...
