Hotel Continental is a beautiful, welcoming, charming place to stay in the middle of Oslo. We stayed there for a total of 3 nights and when I come back to Oslo, it’s where I will stay.

The flush mechanism for the toilet is covered entirely when the toilet seat is raised. Whichever engineer or designer was responsible for this idiocy deserves a fail. For an advertised as high-end hotel to feature such a moronic design is hard to excuse. Perhaps I simply drew the short-straw and got a crappy room as a result of a pre-paid reservation. Because the other feature of the room was ability to hear the thumping bass notes from whatever nearby music venue was playing, until well past midnight. Continental should fix both problems - perhaps by taking room 419 out of service entirely. Because the hotel location, ambience and service-orientation of the staff are all excellent.

Hotel in the center of town, very close to all.

Pros: Brilliant location very elegant.
Cons: Concierge staff information.
Location: Everything in Oslo is very close.
this hotel was very centrally located. The check in went smoothly and the room was quite nice and large for Europe. The windows opened over a side street but the fresh air was nice. The bath amenities were also very nice and the shower a bit hard to get in and out of, but it worked! The breakfast was very normal but nice and they offered nicely prepared Cappuccino even included in the breakfast buffet. the only thing I would say is that we asked about how to get to the hotel from the airport and were told to take a price fixed taxi which would cost well over $120 US. Lucky for us once we landed, we found the FLYTOGET express train for $25 US per person and when we got out at the National Theater station, the hotel was directly across the street from the exit to the station. I do not understand why the concierge did not tell us of this excellent and very easy quick and much less expensive way to get to the hotel. The other slight complaint, although not a reason to downgrade this from a 5 star hotel is that we asked the concierge for dinner recommendations and he gave us a few, we picked one, that was booked, we picked a second, that was booked, third also, so why keep offering us restaurants that are fully booked? It became quite frustrating trying to find anywhere to have seafood in Oslo. Not the hotels fault but would have wanted a better prepared concierge when staying at such a beautiful elegant and well respected hotel.

This is one of the classiest and historic hotels in northern Europe. I highly recommend it!

Pros: Close restaurants, spectacular service, great food and wine, suites are the best place to view 17 may parade
Cons: pricy, occasional outside noise issues
This is one of the classiest and historic hotels in northern Europe. Its staff and service levels approach perfection. I have spent almost 100 nights there. It is located in the heart of Oslo, within walking distance of all down town sites and such. It has a great array of high-quality restaurants and pubs...plus, what service!! I highly recommend it!
