A slice of Morocco – in the centre of Oslo
The Hotel Bristol was designed by Finn Rahn (1879–1936), the architect, noted in particular for the design of what was known as ‘the Moorish Hall’ – Vinterhaven & Bibliotekbaren you see today. Rahn drew his inspiration from Morocco, where he spent every winter. Even though the rooms have been refurbished, the Moorish style and characteristic interiors have been well-preserved. In other words, you can enjoy good food and drink in historic Moroccan surroundings!
The historic centrepiece
Musicians, politicians, writers and actors have drawn inspiration here since 1920. The hotel’s house pianist Frank Sarközi sets the tone nowadays, whilst our classic menu provides the very best in food and drink.
Experience our British traditional Afternoon Tea.
The Bristol sound
In the middle of Vinterhaven, surrounded by palms, chandeliers and Moorish columns, stands a grand piano. Our house pianist usually sits here to set the tone for the visit and create a completely unique atmosphere for our guests.
Finely cut sandwiches
One of the highlights of Vinterhaven & Bibliotekbaren is the wonderful tall sandwiches. Here you can pick and choose from several delicious sandwiches, topped with everything from shrimp and roast beef, to plaice and smoked salmon. A delight for both eye and palate!
Best cocoa in town
