Having travelled Europe for the last month, Thon Hotel Cecil was by far the best place I stayed in. - Good value and perfect location - the hotels near Sentrum were pricer but all the trains going there stop at Nationaltheatret anyway. It was also just down the road from the Christmas market and perfect to quickly run home and... More

Dear Diti27 It is lovely to read that you had such a good time whilst staying at our hotel on your journey through Europe. Our location is as you described quite perfect, in the middle of city centre. Just outside our door you may find shops, pubs, attractions and good links to public transport. If you arrive from the airport... More

Stayed one night in November. Nice room, a little on the cold side. Thermostat broken. About 5 minutes walk to Nationaltheatret station and right by Karl Johan, so nice and central location. Not sure why but room pricier than other Thon hotels close by; would probably choose other hotel next time. Breakfast average, croissants stale and juice from concentrate. Also,... More

This was our first trip to Oslo and we really didn't know what to expect from the city or the hotel - we left very satisfied on both counts. Regarding the hotel...fantastic location near just about everything (including the Christmas Market which had just gotten underway); very convenient to the flytoget train to/from the airport among other transit options; the...

This was our first stay at a Thon Hotel. Because we are moving onto Tromso and Longyearbyen, our budget for a short-stay in Oslo means we searched for something that is about 3.5 to 4 star just like Thon Hotel Cecil. The location is central, within walking distance to all the landmarks like the Parliament, the Grand Hotel, Hard Rock... More

Let me start with the good things about this hotel: 1. An extremely comfortable bed with clean lining. 2- Underfloor heating in the bathroom. 3-Central hotel location. Nothing else I am afraid! This hotel was an utter disappointment from the moment I arrived: although it was almost 1 a.m. and the trainee at the reception must have realised that the... More

The great location of this hotel made it easy to walk to a number of tourist sites. While the room was not exactly large, there was room for our luggage to remain out during our stay. We were on an upper floor and appreciated the security requirement that room cards are required to operate the elevator. The breakfast buffet was... More

We were there for three nights. The hotel has optimal location, close to almost everything. The rooms are right, with everything you need. The breakfast is great, with a very large assortisment of products and in a very nice hall under a crystal roof. The price was also great, as we booked using Bargain option.

Great hotel in middle of Oslo. Hotel staff are very friendly and the rooms are clean and quite. the rooms are small, but that is expected in Norway and is quite common. Breakfast is great with lots of selection. Have stayed twice and will stay again - no complaints - awesome hotel!
