The Thon Spectrum is placed in The middel of Oslo centrum. Being a budget hotel it gives great value for money. I lived here a lot on business trips and used to have around 75 nights a year for 5 years and had never a complaint to give. Nice staff, clean and central.

It is cheap but good hotel located very close to the Central Station. Breakfast was excellent! They did not changed the bedsheets of the bed even after I asked for it. The streets are very noisy at late night and you can hear it from your room. I could see and hear the brawls in the street below my window... More

There is usually no end to my bragging about Thon hotels, including budget ones. The standard, the breakfast, the service and the pricing and in the end the experience. However Thon Spectrum is not quite there, it feels more like a Best Western or a First Hotel and not really like a Thon. I hope this is not the direction... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in June. In a weird location on the edge of the main city centre & a shabby residential area. The Politi (police) riot van parked on the street outside day & night concerned us somewhat..! Lots of bistros, bars, cafés & restaurants nearby & a mini supermarket at the end of the street, so plenty... More

When I arrived this hotel after staying at a paradise hotel in Bergen, I blamed my friend why she picked this one. However, after settled down I found this hotel is still ok with everything that I needed. The shower is hot and powerful. The floor of the bathroom is heated. The room has coffee maker though the sockets are... More

Close to the train station with a good, rich breakfast. Room are all different in size. Most are very small with attached bathroom and water heater. Rooms to the main street are quite noisy, the rooms to the inner side, quite but you can smell the kitchen and cigarette smoke in the early morning. Overall modern and minimalistic design of... More

Great location. Great breakfast with a large variety of food. Smiley and helpful staff. Rooms are a bit dated and simple but spacious. Clean and quiet. Very close to Folketeatret,the railway station and Oslo city.

Because Oslo, and Norway in general, is so expensive, I decided to only look for budget hotels for our one-night stay in Oslo, and found Thon Hotel Spectrum. It was decent value, considering the location close to Oslo city centre, and central station; the room is more than big enough for a couple, and the breakfast was a buffet with... More

A good base to explore Oslo. Average hotel with clean rooms and a comfortable bed. Nothing fancy just Plain and indistinguishable but still alright. Accommodations aren't cheap in Oslo and this is value for what you pay for.

As the name indicates the hotel is right by the Oslo Spektrum concert venue. The rooms are small and plain, but clean. There is however a lot of noice surrounding this hotel. The price is reasonable though.
