We booked this hotel as a pre-cruise stay in Oslo. The location was absolutely perfect: a 5 minute walk from the National Theatre train station (a 25 minute train ride from the airport), a 5 minute walk to the center of activity on Karl Johans Gate, and a 10 minute walk to the Akershus Fortress where the cruise ship terminal...

We stayed here twice recently: once with a group and second on our own several days later. It's an ideal location for whatever you might want to do in Oslo. The rooms were comfortable, especially the upgraded room on the 7th floor in which we stayed on our own. The breakfast buffet was the best we encountered anywhere in our... More

We stayed here for 1 night last month and were very happy. Room was a nice size and beds were very comfortable. Bathroom was clean and modern. I had requested a room with windows facing outsides rather than the atrium and the hotel was able to accommodate my request. The room was still quiet and we did not hear any... More

I don't know how much I can expand on the headline but I'll try... You're about 100 meters from the parliament building square and an easy walk, ferry or tram ride to every site in Oslo you'd want to see in a two or three day trip. The hotel is very clean, with a nice bathroom, and very fast internet.... More

Thon Hotel Cecil is located centrally in a pretty area in Oslo. It is a short walk to the Central Park area with beautiful buildings, commercial and government. It is also a short walk to the beautiful harbor and public transportation. Staff was always friendly and helpful, and breakfast was delicious! The room is small but appropriate for city and... More

Room was quite and clean with comfortable bed, although a bit small. Breakfast was very nice with quiet many selection of food. Location is close to the center of the city. However, not all their staff were friendly.

Dear Jun Z Thank you for taking the time to write a few lines regarding your stay at our hotel. I am so happy to read that you enjoyed our quiet rooms. Because we are an atrium hotel most of our rooms are facing away for the steet and the natural sounds of the city centre. This means that our... More

The front desk staff were very nice and extremely helpful. They gave me directions to the red bus tour, and recommended a really great restaurant for dinner. We had to leave super early to catch a train,so they reserved a cab for us, and made sure that the breakfast staff knew we would be eating as soon as they opened.... More
