Because of it's location, it was a nice stay. Close to the city center, shopping and a few of the sites. The rooms are quite small, but after a couple of days I got use to that. The bed was EXTREMELY comfortable. The staff was wonderfully friendly and accommodating.
If you ask for some specifics with your reservation when booking via Expedia, you might double check before arriving. I was there for almost 2 weeks, and had asked for an upper level room. I guess they did not see this on my expedia request, as I was put on the second floor, right above the entrance. Not a huge deal, the street below could be quite noisy, but due to the jet lag I slept through much of the noise. The rooms are very sound proof.
The advantage of the small rooms, you're encouraged to leave and stay gone for the day. This was marvelous, as I do tend to hang out in my hotel room probably too much. Check in and out was very quick. Also as an American I love having ice available. No ice machines, but the staff provided crushed ice whenever I asked.
Now that I've stayed I would stay again for short visits, but not for long extended trips. My preference.
Great ambiance, very helpful and friendly staff, incredible breakfast, and terrific location. We had a very enjoyable stay! Beds were comfortable and room was nice, but the bathroom was a little outdated. We were so happy to have stayed at The Bristol and will stay there again, the next time we are in Oslo.

I used this hotel for my weekend trip to Oslo. It's conveniently located in the centre, and if you want to see some of the museums you can just walk everywhere within 20'. Fantastic staff, very helpful and friendly.
The hotel was very practical, everything was self-service and the breakfast was lovely.

It is right next to all public transport including central station and bus terminal if you're trying to do a tight timeframe type of trip. It has supermarkets and shopping within 2 minutes walk as well. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great and the room is clean as well. Our electricity in the room, remote of the TV and the key card to the room had some fault but they fixed them very quickly without us wasting too much time of them. We're a family of four so we have a double bed and a bunk bed provided. The room is small but if you're only doing sightseeing it doesn't matter anyway.
