We have used the Spectrum a number of times and it always fits the bill. Not the cheapest place to stay but good rooms and an excellent breakfast in a very convenient location. Staff are friendly and the ability to use the luggage room is very valuable when going on a trip. Set in a cosmopolitan area which we find... More

This hotel is very centrally located. Public transport is minutes away as are many shopping malls. Friendly service and very dedicated staff. Immaculately clean throughout. The staff seems to take pride in their work.

I stayed one night at the Thon Hotel and booked it because of it's close location to not only the central train station but also the concert venue I was going to see a gig at. When I arrived, they were able to get me into a room right away despite it only being about 11:30am. They were also helpful... More

This was my first hotel on my Scandinavian trip. It was a bit hard to find the hotel and it took some asking. I actually had to go into another Thon Hotel to get the directions of Thon Spectrum. The room was small, spartan and old. There was hole in the wall that was probably caused by the bathroom door... More

Well located only a short walk, or one stop on the T-bane (metro) from Oslo's Sentral Stasjon. A plain, but very comfortable hotel. Warm rooms, comfortable beds and an excellent buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. Very quiet in spite of the central location. Within easy reach of most of the attractions of Oslo by public transport with an Oslo... More

Pros- close to attractions and places to eat. Rooms are extremely clean and tidy. Underfloor heating in bathroom is really nice and the heating in... More

Really can't fault this Hotel - close to Oslo Central station and within easy walking distance of restaurants, bars shops and sights. All the staff were happy and welcoming. The room (on the 5th floor) was quiet, very comfortable bed and good shower - and the underfloor heating in the bathroom was a welcome indulgence! Wireless internet fast and reliable.... More

We spent 4 nights and we really enjoyed Oslo! Rooms are big, cleaned and all provided one private bathroom with shower. Breakfast is amazing: buffet service with nice bread, butter and red jam. Prices are cheaper than other hotels for the same services. Good wi-fi network in. Totally agreed.

I spent 4 nights here to attend a conference at the Raddison Blu across the way. The hotel was in a very convenient location- easy to walk to many of the sights, and only a short walk from the train station (took the fast train from the airport). Know what you are getting into at this hotel, and you'll be... More

A fine hotel if you want to stay in Oslo for one or two nights. Located near the central station. It is a budget hotel, and for that the service is good. The rooms are very different, mine was fine. The bathroom was a bit outdated with some broken tiles, but is was clean. Room with view on the street... More

Our rooms have been redecorated over a few years starting in 2003 and finishing in 2011. The rooms are therefore quite different in style. We will fix the broken tiles in the bathroom in the... More
