So good it's hard to know what to single out.
If I have to choose what to feature, maybe it would be the sumptuous and delicious breakfast, served by staff who seemed genuinely happy in their work. Or the gorgeous, grand hotel-style turn-of the-century decor with many original furnishings and paintings. Or the little details like l'Occitane toiletries. This was a luxury hotel in every way.

Will Always stay here in Oslo
This was the second time at The Bristol. The staff is fabulous and the accommodations excellent. Highly recommend. Will be staying there again.
Mary Johnson, us3 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Hotel Bristol is in a great location for tourists visiting Oslo. Walking distance or public transport nearby to all major attractions. The hotel looks as it was recently refurbished so it is stylish and with all modern amenities. Breakfast was very good. We were on a higher floor and had a view overlooking the roofs on the castle! Minor minuses: - they did not have a less warm blanket on the premisess, only very warm winter kin, so my husband could not sleep well; - when checking out the night before the check out day (we did not want to lose time in the morning) they did not charge us for the last night, so we did not save any time and if we were on a tighter schedule, we could miss the train to the airport. All in all, very happy with our stay and would stay there again.

The best
Such a nice hotel! We have stayed many times at this classic hotel and I will be happy to return. This is a uniquely classy experience for Norway.

Very good 8.0
I liked the hotel generally and thought it was beautiful! BUT the bed linen was stained which was disappointing and my allergies flared up in the room which didn’t give me a good impression of either the carpets or the vents. If it wasn’t wife those two things it would be close to 5 star
