This hotel offered a great location, helpful staff and an excellent breakfast. It's a 5-minute walk from the National Theater metro stop. There's a pretty park (Spikersuppa) at the first intersection and the neighborhood appears to be safe at all hours. It's centrally located - reasonable walking distance from the ferry, other sights and many restaurants. One of the harder... More

The Thon Cecil took my wife and I into the hotel as a deal with the First Millennium hotel in Oslo. Their review is another story. The Thon Cecil were asked to accommodate us and we were forced to change hotels at 1am. We were delayed coming back on a train from Bergen. We followed all appropriate procedures re notifying...

We really liked this hotel - it delivered a very convenient location, clean, fresh rooms, and a great breakfast. Great reception staff on both checkin and checkout. Oslo was the end of our "Norway In A Nutshell" trip, and we'd had our larger pieces of luggage delivered from Bergen a couple of days before (porterservice.no), and the Hotel staff happily... More

Hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay here. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Good selection of food for breakfast, although some days the cooked selection could have been hotter. Overall, great central location for sight-seeing and good value as we had discount for staying 4 nights or more.

Had 3 in a room and paid extra for that. Room was so small I place to walk. Had to step over suitcases. Food was great!First day didn't clean room until evening. Got conditioner bottles but no shampoo. Would look at other places first before booking again. Location was fabulous!

Our first time visiting Oslo. Really, our family's only issue was finding the hotel the first day. Everything shows the address as Stortingsgata 8, but we couldn't find the hotel anywhere on that street. Finally spotted it around the corner on Rosenkrantz gate! Maybe we just don't understand their system of addresses? The hotel was about a 10 minute walk... More

Thon Cecil Hotel is the perfect centrally located Oslo hotel. It's located less than a block off of the main square in Oslo. You're within a block of Parliament, less than five blocks to the National Theatre, Culture Museum, City Hall, waterfront and more. Public transportation is close by (bus or metro) and most things are an easy walk to... More

Great location in Oslo...close to everything "touristy"you will want to do. Try to get a room overlooking the breakfast atrium. Street side can get noisy on weekends. If you're driving call ahead to reserve a parking spot. Otherwise somewhat small rooms but manageable and clean. Very nice staff. The breakfasts are well above average. Overall reasonable value in a very... More
