In the most expensive city in the world, this hotel, which is well situated in downtown, is a great value. The rooms are simple, clean and comfortable. The price includes breakfast which includes Scandinavian and American style. What a surprise, I had to leave at 4am to catch a train and they provided a simple boxed breakfast!

My family visited Norway in May 2014. A great experience. So we made reservations in advance at the Thon Hotel Cecil which ran a bit high, $150 a night USD. This we found to be reasonable by Norwegian standards. However we didn't make advanced reservations for the end of our trip as we were unsure where we would be. Ended... More

Just arriving home after a mini break in Oslo, Norway, in Thon Hotel Cecil and i´m just allready missing the city and the hotel. For a 3* hotel it seemed to me and to my wife, just wonderful!

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.

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 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!

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
