The hotel is close to the water,ferries,and lots of good restaurants. Also a good hotel for families. The desk staff were all very helpful. Be aware the air conditioning is central ac,not controlled in your room.

Central location and great for exploring Oslo on foot. Hotel was clean and provided basic facilities for our short stay. Staff friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast was on the 2nd floor and gave the impression of sitting outside as it was under a glass atrium - plenty of food.

I recently spent 3 nights at Thon Cecil in Oslo after traveling around Norway for a month.....thus, I was feeling a bit poorer then before I left the US. I couldn't have enjoyed my stay at Thon more highly. I was able to walk everywhere, and where I couldn't, my Oslo pass got me there. The breakfast was very good... More

I am not your average grumpy traveller who are always complaining and whinging about the smallest things. I have slept in most dodgy places. In London I once slept in a hotel corridor. In China I've slept on the floor of a 2 room hotel. But all the places I've stayed have managed to provide me the minimum: a place... More

We had a nice, clean room and excellent service from the desk. The breakfast was huge and delicious. The rooms face into a courtyard that has the breakfast room below, but is covered above. The nice thing is that it gives light in the room, but it is easier to make the room dark at night during the summer. We... More

We spent 2 nights in the Cecil. It was an easy walk from train station. Easy access to metro made our visit to the Munch museum convenient. Room overlooked the courtyard and was quiet. Very ample breakfast.

Great downtown location steps from train station, subway, theatre, shops and harbour. Super friendly and helpful staff and an excellent breakfast. Room was typical ship inspired Scandinavian. Snug and nowhere to put clothes but that was a minor inconvenience. I would recommend this hotel and stay there again.

Very friendly staff and nice hotel. Only drawback is that there is no control of AC in the room. Very good breakfast and free coffee and tea in the reception and room. Highly recommended with a super central location. Also very close to the airport bus stop.

Situated in the dead center of town, next door to Stortinget. Inbetween bus stops, tube and train stations and in walkong distance to everything. Breakfast is very good and if you want a quiet room, ask for a room facing inwards.

Stayed here for two nights in connection with meetings in Oslo. The hotel is very centrally located, which is a great asset. There are lots of restaurants in the neighborhood and it's a short walk to the Nasjonalteater train station where you can take the train to/from the airport. The room was cozy but very small. The breakfast was really... More
