In general unfriendly staff, slow service and it was obvious they hated their job and were obviously unmotived to do it well. In particular: Not very clean: E.g. there was so much garbabe in the luggage room, including a half eaten banana that was rotting away for days and most likely is still in there, carpets that hadn't been shampooed...

You can't beat the location of this hotel, but that was the only good thing about it. The rooms are very small, my shower had no soap (dispenser was empty), the beds sag, the rooms have no plug outlets, my door looked like a brawl took place in the doorframe, and a kleenex would have made a better pillow.

Our family of 4 spent a wonderful and quiet night at Thon Spectrum in the middle of Oslo Sentrum. We were able to walk while hauling our suitcases from Oslo S, which was very convenient. The room was good size and clean. The extra beds for the kids were made up and ready when we got there. The breakfast was... More

Good location if you travel by bus or train as the hotel is located about 10 minutes walk from terminals. Not far from the town center. Standard hotel rooms, clean with good beds. Normal nordic breakfast, staff fills in regularly.

This hotel is very central, although a bit hidden from the others. But it has all you need in clean room, and a good breakfast and 5 min walk from the central station. Also a bit away from both traffic and crowded areas its a quiet place to get a rest :)

The hotel is located in Down town of Oslo, near Storgata and Oslo Central Station and Bus Terminal. Brugata has no cars, but some shops. 24/365 7 Eleven and Rema 1000 supermarket. Hotel has one elevator. Better try the stairs. Breakfast is OK.

Very nice staff and good value regarding the quality of the rooms. But be sure to ask for a room NOT facing the street. This was noisy! Lots of screaming, loud music and early "beeping" from delivery trucks. No need for a wake up call. But good beds. Rooms differ in size. We got a tiny, tiny room for 2,... More
