The Grand Hotel Oslo (@grandhoteloslo) is Norway’s most iconic hotel, which opened over 145 years ago, in 1874. Throughout its existence, the hotel has reeled in international guests, celebrities, and Nobel Peace Prize laureates. The resplendent place of accommodation hosts 283 rooms, including 54 suites, which have been renovated with a modern classic design, while providing unmatched Nordic hospitality with its above-and-beyond services. When checking in, travelers will be beguiled by the lobby, structured with high ceilings, a lavish chandelier, gently pink walls, and glistening floors. Guests looking for tip-top accommodations will love the Tower Suite. It features a four-poster bed, wardrobe area, lounge, and dining table with three terraces on its highest floor, which peer out to Oslo’s parliament building.
For libations, guests can lounge in the Othilia Lobby Bar — named after the hotel’s illustrious 19th and 20th-century guests — for spirits and snacks. The next day, they can reserve a table at The Palmen restaurant. Adorned with a draping brown glass chandelier, spooling floral centerpieces, marble walls and eye-catching paintings, it’s the perfect place for an ambrosial lunch, afternoon tea, or ritzy dinner.
Centrally located within Oslo, the hotel is a 5-minute walk from the National Museum of Art and an 11-minute walk from the Royal Palace.
