The Grand Hotel is situated in the heart of Oslo, just 500 meters from the Royal Palace. It is a flagship hotel where people stay who are going to visit the Scandinavian capital.

The building outside is not attractive and the street (with steep slope) also draws much attention. However it is well located, close to downtown and within walking distance of the most interesting places of the city. I was only three days, for my job, but it gave me a little time to visit the city, the port, etc. It was also very close to the train-metro (spectacular, certainly modern in Norway and clean) "Nationaltheatrer" and Solli with an airport connection. The hotel is "sustainable" and "environmentally friendly" with organic materials and biological products. I tried were the breakfast ... mmm .. delicious .. nothing sanísimos and croissant filled colesterolazo, the only one thing, if you are not used do not take too much. The room was perfect, comfortable and modern - it had a pretty big apple screen with which you can connect to the Internet and work from bed, there was a mural-wall separating the bed from the small entry space with table and armchairs. They had a spa too that you can use throughout your stay. Super nice staff, perfect communication in English (as is the case throughout Scandinavia). Very friendly - I was flying back in the evening and let me stay at the spa "killing time" until my time to catch the metro - it was great. I did not take photos of the hotel or room, but seriously it is beautiful, do not be misled by the facade (horrible... in contrast to the good architecture they have there).

Considering how expensive Oslo is, it's nice to find a new, clean place, that is not overly expensive. You have free coffee and a microwave to not break your budget. Definitely more than you need, plus the hotel is centrally located and you can walk to the main street safely.
This was our last hotel in Norway - a large hotel, near the central railway station, and well-connected by all means of transport to the main attractions of the city and the airport, with trains running every 20-30 minutes. The reception was very efficient, with a friendly and helpful staff. The room was spacious, with large, comfortable beds and perfect soundproofing. The ensuite bathroom was big, with underfloor eating. There was no fridge in the room, but there was a safe. The wifi was free, and worked perfectly. Breakfast was quite good, although at peak time it got very busy, and was a bit chaotic.
Although this hostel is a bit far from the city, it can easily be reached by train or bus. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful, and it's clean and comfortable. There's a common kitchen on every floor, as well as an area with a television. One advantage of this hostel is that breakfast - with Norwegian food - is included. Unfortunately, it's only open in summer.

The Opera Hotel, as its name suggests, is very close to the spectacular new Oslo Opera House, in an area that is still under construction as the city expands with ultramodern buildings. It is a new, striking hotel with a huge but cozy lobby, and nice and spacious rooms. Mine was on the first floor, overlooking the train station, but the soundproofing was excellent. The wifi is free, but you'll have to ask for the login and password at reception. The coverage is great throughout the hotel. The breakfast buffet is very complete, with a Nespresso machine so you can get coffee to suit your taste. And the location is great, near the central station and close to the royal palace.

The number 17 tram will take you to the Heimgelsgate stop, a few metres away. We arrived late at night, and had to call a phone number to get the keys - this is not a hotel, and therefore had no reception desk. The apartment is very well-equipped. It's a studio with a bed, sofa, plasma TV, and kitchen with all the utensils, so you can save on food rather than going out to expensive Norwegian restaurants. There's a separate bathroom, and we were able to set up a crib for the baby. Everything is clean, the furniture is new, and it's very close to Oslo Cathedral.
