Good location walking distance from trainstation - clean and okay rooms - good breakfast lots to choose from - 2 boring things the bed was to soft and the toilette paper was of poor quality. So if you don't mid the soft bed its an excellent choice

I slept two weekends here while on a business trip and I was as happy with it both times. It is a great place to stay just in the middle of everything. If you are a light sleeper it might be difficult when the clubs close as there is a bit of noise, but if you close your window it... More

Mayby I was unlucky, but this was not good. The room was clean, but with much wear and tear and location is not very attractive either. Breakfast was OK. I had room against the back yard and the car park. Perhaps the worst possible. If you are able to find other accommodation for the same price, go for that.

Excellent value for money, and close to station and Oslo Spektrum but not a particularly good part of town and can be noisy. Free wifi is very good, and the breakfast very substantial. All in all pretty good.

The Thon Hotel Spectrum is a budget class Thon hotel. It is within walking distance to the main Oslo railway station (Oslo S) and can also be reached by metro/t-bane (Grønland station). The hotel has some interesting room facing the pedestrian street of Brugata. There are many interesting restaurants and shops in the area; along Brugata, Torggata and a short... More

A walking distance from the central station and the bus terminal. Rooms are quite spacious and clean. I especially enjoyed the big screen TV. Usually you get a small television so far from the bed that the remote barely works. In this hotel, the TV is big and close enough to the bed so after a hard days work it... More

Impressing breakfast buffet with two chefs serving warm dishes.New constructions rules(?) forbids opening of windows! so you have to ask for a key to open it one inch.

Good location quite near to the cental station. Although the previous reviews were right, there are lots of "suspicious" people hanging around in the neighbourhood... The room on the 6th floor was nice, it was a bit cold in the beginning (energy saving..???), but the radiator did its job after I adjusted it. I was really happy with the breakfast,... More

The hotel is average. Not too fancy, but OK and at a reasonable price in a city with so big prices. The rooms are clean and breakfast is OK. The problem is that the rooms facing the main street are very noisy especially in weekends and the rooms in the back are facing a interior courtyard and a multistory car... More
