Reviewed 10 December 2017

The hotel was fabulous as well as the wonderful staff. The restaurant, Bristol Grill was absolutely fantastic. Very friendly atmosphere, comfertable beds, excellent breakfast and spacy quiet room. Only some minutes walk to Carl Johan street, shopping, restaurants etc. The room was not properly cleaned, the floors and the bathroom were dirty - terrible..

Room Tip: Ask for 5 th floor with balcony and wiev the Norwegian castle.

Were here on seminar. Facilities and service very good, snacks, fruits, smoothies and more all day long.

All very well. But what really stood out was the enormous lunch-buffet. I have been to many, but this one stood out. All, and then some! With Norwegian x-mas specials, seafood, meats, salads +++. And the sweets! We (10 of us) were all so stuffed, we could hardly go on with the seminar. And everyone praising this place.

And the service was just superb, with no exceptions.I don't remember last I saw this kind of personnel, always there, helpful, kind and always a smile. The chefs looking in to see that everything was in order, and just a wink and they helped you in an instant.One of them ran and got me a plate as he noticed I didn't find one at first.

Not often I give top score or use big words like this, but it was just a joy.

Treat yourself to a long lunch here, you will truly not regret it.

The toilet still had marks from previous guests which you wouldn’t expect from a 4* Hotel. It’s got an old British style that appeals to certain people but cleanliness, a basic requirement is certainly overlooked.
