I have stayed at Thon Cecil many times. And again this time it was nice to get here. The location couldn't be better and the breakfast is awesome. Also it's nice that they call before arrival to ask for arrival time - sometimes I might forget that I should ask for later arrival. The rooms are nice and clean and... More

The Thon Hotel Cecil in Oslo is a perfectly located hotel for the tourist who wants to see the important sight seeing attractions in Oslo. The Parliament is close to the hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend trip. It's centrally located, yet quiet at night (we were at 703). The complimentary breakfast is nice consisting of yoghurt, fruits, cereal, bread and croissants, ham, cheese, jam, salmon and herring, different types of eggs, bacon, beans and DYI waffles. Unfortunately, the breakfast room has too low capacity when the hotel is... More

Some of the rooms have a view INSIDE the hotel, so no view but you can see people having their breakfast. Hence, the light in those rooms is minimal. So choose carefully when booking, and ask for a room with a view other than this one !

Less pricey than other hotels in the area.

Stayed at this hotel for a business trip and to give it it's credit it is in a central location with lots of restaurants close by, as well as fairly near the train that takes you from the airport.
