        Stodgy overstuffed old Briston”

        This is not going to be your cheapest alternative in Oslo, but the breakfast is fine, the old fashioned decor and fixtures (not in the rooms, of course) are charming, the expensive-even-for-Oslo restaurant downstairs is totally respectable, and the locals like to be invited here if you know what I mean. It's 100% old snobby Oslo, the hotel of the publishing establishment for example, and a lot less snotty about its snob appeal than Grand or Continental, and out of the way of the Karl Johan riffraff.

        The Hotel Bristol was great. They had a fantastic buffet breakfast, with a huge selection. The rooms were warm & stylish. It is in a great location and within an easy walk to all major sights. The National Gallery is only 3 mins away and walk to the Palace only 10 mins. The lobby bar is very grand & luxuruous and worth a visit. Reception staff were very efficient and helpful. Would recommend.

        Location, helpful staff, comfort

        We spent 3 nights in a standard double room. Bed was comfortable, no view from the room but it didn't matter for our stay. Good clean bathroom with bath and shower, lovely hot water with plenty of shower gel and shampoo. Room with TV and mini bar which we didn't use. Would have preferred tea making facilities in the room, but maybe because we are english! Staff pleasant and helpful. Waiter in the dining room remembered which tea we liked. Food was good, breakfast particularly good and varied choice. Excellent quality. Would definitely stay again when visiting Oslo.

        Location, Service and beautiful Hotel

        When I walked into the Bristol, I was amazed at the decor. It is almost old English Manor decor with plenty of wood panelling and very high ceilings. BEAUTIFUL!! A historic building! I loved my room, the staff is genuinely friendly and service is excellent. The only exception would be Room Service: they didn't quite understand English too well and what was brought did not match up to the description of what I ordered. But I could live without the missing Onion Rings and so I didn't inquire. All in all, the hotel is in a fantastic location. Oslo central is very small and the hotel is well placed. I really enjoyed staying at the hotel! Fantastic experience.

        Central to everything and exceptional service

        from the outside the bristol looks a bit like dracula's castle, but when i entered reception i felt like i'd walked into a study or library from another era; it was enchanting. wonderfully warm and inviting spaces with lots of character, cosy lighting and dark wood desks/panelling. location was great, very central. bedrooms were a decent size and comfortable - only negative was that the bathroom was very warm due to the ducted-heating in the floor. don't know if you could turn it down but it didn't kill the experience for me. the service was exceptional, helpful and cheery and they helped me with my mobile phone woes. here for 3 nights and thought it was good for the price, especially as the breakfast offering was really plentiful and good quality. only thing i'd suggest would be free tea/coffee in rooms or in the lobby. very happy with my choice for oslo.

        The location couldn't be better. Very close to Karl Johan (absolute center) but also in walking distance from the alternative nightlife in Grünerløkka with all its cafés, clubs and music places. The hotel has a relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, and pleasant traditional feel. The rooms are definately ok and will not disappoint you. We needed help from the staff and they did everything with a smile. Definately recommended hotel in the medium price categori.

        Nice stay at a classic centre hotel”

        Got a good price at Agoda, spacious room, free wifi, quiet room

        Stay was made pleasent by friendly staff and I presume the value for money was good because of the free upgrade (from single room to double). Otherwise, the rooms need refurbishing and the bed comfort is far below the standard I'm used to when travelling to the US (Marriott for instance). But having tried a few different hotels in Oslo it's not bad compared to other centre hotels. Location is great, just one block from the main street and close everything.

        I was extremely happy with my experience at the Thon Bristol Hotel. The single room they gave me faced away from the street, so it was very quiet even in a busy downtown neighborhood. Everything was very clean, there was plenty of space in the room to work, and free internet. I would definitely go back.

        Noisy on weekends

        Very ornate and baroque hotel with old world charm. It is located right of the main drag between the parliament and the palace. Sumptous breakfast is generally included in the room rate. Around the hotel theirs tons of shopping cafes and shopping but Norway is a very expensive country so shopping ??? the only negative is that the hotel can be noisy on weekends if there is a private party on. Pastries in the coffee shop are excellent!!
