                Very friendly helpful staff . Very comfortable room. Excellent location.

                Bookings .com website said that the hotel had an indoor swimming pool which is incorrect. This however did not take from the enjoyment of my stay.

                I will find it very difficult to say what I liked best when everything was so perfect! The beauty of the hotel, the unique designs, the attention to detail in every way. It is the most special hotel I have had the pleasure to stay in and I have stayed at the ritz! I really cannot praise the staff and the overall experience highly enough! 10/10 is not enough!!!!!

                Nothing!

                Location is absolutely excellent within walking distance of much of the historic parts of oslo as well as aker brygge, a waterside development which itself contains some good restaurants (druen, the edge). The serviceat the continental is excellent. Bedrooms are large and comfortable. The adjoining theater cafeen is historic, very popular and has excellent food and an excellent wine list. Highly recommended.

                The room was somewhat cold. Although a portable heater was supplied it tripped out a fuse/circuit breaker which took out some lights.

                Good breakfast and clean room. Comfy bed.

                I expected more classic style and design.

                The location was excellent (right opposite National Theatre metro, tram and Airport Express train stops) and a short walk from the harbour. The service was what you might expect at a top hotel, the room attractively furnished and the breakfast with free News Papers was very good.

                For a superior room, the bathroom was small and felt cramped. The radiator in my room did not work. I was given an additional heater immediately after I called to say I was cold. So not a problem in the end......but an inconvenience.

                At arrival I was upgraded from a deluxe room to a junior suite, however after arriving at room I realised it was a down grade. Spaciuos room but totallly out of date on standard. Definately not value for money

                Photos on a website essentially differ from a reality. Rooms should be repaired
