I did not stay here, but my friends did. I did wait for my friends to arrive to this hotel from the comfort of the rather opulent Palmen. I enjoyed their afternoon tea with champaign and great assortment of sandwiches, cakes, macaroons, cookies, crackers, spreads, sugar, more sugar and really pretty sugar. By the time my friends showed up I was crashing on insulin from the intense sugar high. They let me in despite my camping/travel hobo beard and flip-flops. This is where you take your grandmother or have a tea party with your daughter. ($$$ for a tea party in a really lavish setting)

The Grand Hotel is a an institution in Oslo (probably Norway), it is like going to Paris and staying at the Ritz. The building is amazing with the original architecture very well preserved: high ceilings, chandeliers, wall paints and murals. I had been to the Grand Hotel a few times, for drinks at the Limelight bar, and English little gem that’s quite popular for small meet ups. But really wanted to come back to check their Rooftop Bar, which offers nice views of the palace and Karl Johans and the Grand Café, always packed with people; Ibsen’s table is still there. There is history everywhere… Obama stayed here once (and was actually the first one to use the newly renovated gym) and all Nobel Prize laureates stay in the hotel, so quite often you may bump into someone famous. The rooms are simply marvelous, the most luxurious I have seen in Oslo so far and their Spa is in my opinion probably the best one in Oslo. Staying at the Grand Hotel is surely to be an amazing experience, the service is first class and even if you are not the president of the USA you still fell like everyone’s priority is to make sure that your time there is unforgettable.
