The hotel is very nice, clean and conveniently located. Sights, food and shopping were within walking distance. Public and/or sightseeing transport was very easy to get.The staff is very sincere and helpful. The breakfast buffet is excellent. I would go there again.

Breakfast buffet was huge and delicious. Staff sold us Oslo Pass and Airport Express train tickets and even packed us a breakfast to go as we left before the... More

Booked the room for 2 nights together with a double room 3 month before arrival, asked after reading reviews for... More

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.

The morning buffet was excellent and the staff again helpful and friendly. Great value and well located within walking distance of the main landmarks and attractions in Oslo. We will come... More
