4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed two nights at this hotel and was very happy with the staff and the breakfast. It was exceptionally hot during our stay and with no AC we had to keep the windows open. Being on the second floor corner room was very noisy as the trolly cars went by. Other then that it was a great hotel.

We stayed during a heat wave (+85F) so the east facing room was hot. But the hotel provided fans, and as we did not opt to stay in a fancy hotel with AC, we managed. The staff were very helpful, providing ice, offering to make dinner reservations, and answering other questions. Location near Flybussen stop, tram stop, and easy walk... More

The Hotel was nice and centralized. The room was good but not very big. I found the bed a bit small in size. Breakfast was nice. The main plus point of this Hotel is the convenience for travelling to places around you.

Oslo has very few warm days during the summer. But if you get there during this period beware some hotels do not have air conditioning. Thon Hotel Europa is one of these. Good location near the Palace. Really small room, I mean really small, and bathrooms that could not possibly be smaller. Oslo has many, many hotels in the city... More

The hotel is just a short walk from the airport bus terminus and is well placed for the Royal Palace, several museums and a short stroll into the centre or waterfront. We stayed for 5 nights and got a good discount. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was average size and comfortable with coffee making... More
