This is a hotel with tons of charm and style without being pretentious. I first had a superior room that had not been renovated. During the second part of my stay, I had a standard room that clearly had been modernized. Both rooms were very clean and quiet. Excellent beds, and no floppy pillows that you will find in hotels...

The room is pretty standard by European standards. The actual bar has great service and ambiance. The restaurant was OK although the service was less than tremendous. The lobby bar is pathetic. Not only is there no host around, but the service is truly abysmal. Two days in a row there was no host. Even the front desk people tried...

Slightly old fashioned hotel which is just what we like, rooms however were modern with all as you would expect. Staff superb, nothing too much trouble. Had afternoon tea in lobby area which was great. Had two evening meals in the restaurant, and both were superb. Very clever cooking using good local ingredients producing delicious gourmet dishes, highly recommend.

A top-notch hotel in central Oslo. Check-in, concierge and restaurant staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. I had a single room on the 5th floor; quite a small room, but not a problem as I was only staying for one night. The fitness room and spa/sauna looked excellent although I didn't have time to try them out.

Oslo has 3 fourstar hotels. Bristol is one of them, and keep av flair of good old days, but stays also modern. The room I got, double as single, was big enough but the bathroom was tiny, just a shower and a wc. Smart gadget is the permanent contact for charging. How many times have you put your phone or...

I stayed a few times at Bristol. I like the atmosphere and good location. The rooms are nice even of they are not often spacious. Clean and well equipped. On a few occasions I have heard neighboring rooms, but more often its been very quiet. A hamburger in the library bar is well recommended.

Stayed two separate night here. What a gem of a classic 30s-40s hotel. Beautiful reception area, very popular with the locals as a meeting place. Rooms well appointed and clean. Breakfast was very good with a huge choice. You won't be dissapointed.

Stayed a Saturday with my wife and another couple to celebrate mutual anniversaries. The hotel looks anonymous from the outside but the inside is impressive and majestic. Classical English style with wood and ornaments etc. we were upgraded to a very nice Club Room on the 6th floor.
