The hotel is located right in the city center, within walking distance of many attractions and 5 minutes walk from Nationaltheatret station, which makes using the public transport very easy too (also to and from Gardermoen Airport). Room was clean, bed was great, breakfast was delicious, price was reasonable and the service was very friendly, so we were extremely happy... More

Dear KeldonCZ! Thank you very much for your positive feedback despite the cold room. We have had the most wonderful and warm summer. The temperature dropped fast because of weather changes. When we experience rapid changes it takes some time for the temperature to adjust and also the building. We hope to welcome you back at Thon Hotel Cecil and... More

This hotel is in a great location right in the centre of Oslo - very close to everywhere you need/want to go. The facility seems very modern and new and is very comfortable. The greatest thing is the breakfast - simply amazing! So much variety and is simply delicious. Not what one expects given the traditional continental breakfasts in northern... More

Business hotel located downtown Oslo with walking distance to main street Karl Johans gate, underground and trains. Friendly reception and excellent breakfast. My room could benefit from a makeover, but it was clean, well equipped and had a comfortable bed. No traffic noise or disturbances.

Centrally located, clean modern rooms with showers, and best of all, a great breakfast with not only the usual staples but also make your own waffles, fruit smoothies, yogurt parfaits with granola and smoked salmon. Many rooms faced toward an inner courtroom, so very quiet.

This is a nice modern hotel about a block from Karl Johann gate and near the Parliament building. The rooms were clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. The bedroom was a nice size with complimentary toiletries. Check in was very easy and the front desk clerk was very helpful with supplying a city map for me on which he mapped out... More

Good amount of room for a European hotel. The bathroom was still small though. Breakfast was the best part, lots of options and scrambled eggs! Great location in the heart of it all, not far from the train station either. Neat way to advertise by letting you use their umbrellas. Still expensive for what you get, but all of Scandinavia...

When we booked our stay in Cecil hotel, we were not aware that the room we booked had no outside window. On arrival, it appeared that almost all rooms faced on the atrium, which gets very hot in the summer, especially on the higher floors. There was no facility for individual adjustment of the airco. The room further had a... More
