Mid August 2021: NO VOUCHERS - DOUBLE PAID Hotel nights + FULL Hotel BILL taken off TWICE of my CreditCard: Still NO Refund! Really frustratiing service for a hotel which should one of the best addresses in Oslo! I absolutely cannot recommend - was my worst experience during my 3 weeks Norway vacation. Almost 2 months of communication and still no solution of my e-mails! Grand Hotel ignores my e-mails - no reaction taken: Background: I booked based on Scandic vouchers issued of 2 hotel nights which I payed in Feb 2020 and could not use due to Corona. - Grand Hotel mentioned they cannot use the hotel vouchers. So I payed the nights again - Grand Hotel Oslo did not even return the vouchers (valid till Dec 2022); got lost at the reception - Grand Hotel Oslo debited my credit card twice with the full hotel bill including breakfast and roof top bar

We had a wonderful afternoon, night and morning at Grand hotel. From we came into the hotel and until we left next day was perfect. Service minded and smiling personell all over, the doorman, in the reception, the rubbermaid, in the bar and the breakfast personell. Our room (Superior Plus) was big, clean and nicely decorated. The bed was huge! Grand is in the middle of Oslo, easy to walk, directly in the shopping area, lots of restaurants and close to train, bus and underground. If you want to stay in a nice hotel in Oslo, stay at Grand.

I love this gem of a hotel in the centre of Oslo city. Great rooms, great staff, sumptuous cocktails and just wonderful old fashion charm! The spa and pool are a welcome retreat! Always a warm welcome awaits! I have a thing for historical hotels and this one ticks the box big time! So if you’re looking for somewhere with a bit of luxury and charm combined this is the place for you! 😊
