Just checked in so probably not the best time to write a review but I am impressed The check in system was down - but I got my room key anyway. Great check in experience...fantastic room....currently having lunch in the restaurant and it's clear that service is superb at this slightly old worldly but dignified hotel.

In a superb location at the very centre of Oslo (a beautiful city, especially with good weather), offering a superior overall service, a good and pleasant restaurant, a large and elegant room (deluxe), Hotel Continental was a key factor for a wonderful stay.

I stayed here for two nights this week. Having stayed at many Hotels in Oslo over the last 20 years, this was my first stay at the Continental. I can say that it was the most comfortable stay that I have had in the city. I had a Standard single room, which was larger than I expected, and nicely furnished,...

I stayed at The Continental for two nights whilst in Oslo for business meetings. I selected this hotel because of the very central and highly convenient location (a brief walk from just about everything including the Nationaltheatret station and direct trains to and from the airport (tip - download the flytoget app in advance to buy and download train tickets...

Really loved this property. Recently refurbished. Great character, history and excellent location. Loved the decor - a fantastic mix of traditional modern - works so well. Looks and feels great. Beds are like clouds. Views vary - worth paying a bit more for a balcony. The restaurant and cafe were both excellent, with great food, wine and excellent service. All...

We stayed for 3 nights to visit friends and explore the city. We came on a weekend when a lot of hotel staff were on strike although this hotel was unaffected.
