Nice enough hotel, just a shame about the surrounding area and increasing number of immigrants sleeping on the streets outside. Can also be noisy due to the bars down the street. Hotel itself is nice, clean and great breakfast items in the morning.

I used this hotel some years ago, and that time I was more than happy with it because of the central location and small, but new and modern rooms. The hotell is still near the railway station and city center, and the rooms are also still ok. But two things have changed that made me not enjoy my stay. There... More

Had a reward night at this hotel. Got a nice quiet room with window towards the backyard. I understand that the rooms facing the other way have big noise problems. Stay away from the streets outside at night. To many bad people there at thus area of Oslo. Room was fine for a budget hotel.

A short walk from the central station I found this hotel to have reasonable sized, clean rooms. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was much better than I expected at this price point with a great range of options. Good value for money and better than I was expecting.

Close to the city train, bus and airport express train - this is a simple, clean hotel for the cheap business men. Yes, it's close to the lower down town - but that's it. No good restaurants, no friendly nightlife, not even got shopping. Lots of prostitutes, druggies and other scary types, and you can, I promise, only take taxi... More

Very central hotel close to Oslo S. Some noise at night, but that's what you have to expect staying at a hotel in the city center. Bring ear plugs. Rooms were comfortable & clean, though the maids could have washed the bottom of the walls (black shoe marks etc.) to make a better impression. Doors to the working rooms (where... More

A good location in a middle of city center. Good connections with public transportation and to the Airport. Breakfast included in price was good and versatile. We got an attic room with roof windows. Nice view, but it was pretty hot weather in Oslo and the room was very warm. A fan had been useful especially at night. A little... More

We picked this hotel based on the price and location near the Oslo central station. However, I would not say I felt the safest while walking to this hotel. While coming in and out of this hotel, I always noticed that there were cops hanging around the nearby streets, which I'm unsure if I think this is good or bad.... More

We stayed just one night to catch the train to stockholm. I'm glad we weren't staying longer. The hotel is well located for an overnighter and access to a range of affordable cafés. The hotel is a budget one but with the standard of the Thon chain. So far so good. The down side is the noise at night and... More

Location is one of the main factors when I choose a place to stay and Thon Spectrum has a good location close to Oslo City and the train\bus stations. The hotel must have been renovated not long ago because it appears very modern. We got a nice, quiet room with good space. The price is excellent in what is considered... More
