We booked a last minute trip to Oslo and chose to stay at the Thon Europa. From the start the staff were very helpful and friendly. The room itself was comfortable with a decent size double, mini bar (useful for storing drinks bought at the airport!), seating area and a decent shower. Breakfast buffet was great, albeit sometimes busy, with... More

Nothing fancy. One of many Thon hotels in Oslo. This was a nice location up near the slottsparken (palace) and national theatre district. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast, as is typical in Scandinavia, was tasty and plentiful. Free nespresso coffee in the lobby anytime you wanted. Rooms were clean and not a bad size. Washrooms were good although... More

This hotel have the best service of all hotels i have been staying at in Oslo. Nothing is at any problem for the people working there. I highly reccomend this hotel for solo, pair and business. Its also an idea to get a room towards the back to avoid noise from the train.

This hotel is well situated. Not too far to walk to the waterfront (Aker Brygge), sights in town and Nationaltheatre train station. When you arrive from Gardermoen airport the stop Nationaltheatre brings you very close to the hotel (less than a 5 minute walk. Make sure you walk towards the Palace and try to locate the Radisson hotel. They are... More

We stayed here in August 2014 and were really happy with our stay. We had a huge bright room with separate sitting area and a balcony, overlooking the main street and with views to the Royal Palace gardens.

We stayed here for 3 nights and would recommend this hotel for a short break. The location is great, close to Main Street and attractions within walking distance. Rooms are cozy with comfy beds. Breakfast is a good selection of hot and cold options, there is also a free Nespresso machine in reception. The only minor niggles were the lifts... More

Great stay for one night. The crew were service minded. We came late night and were warmly welcomed by the receptionist. Clean and quiet room with a fine bathroom. The breakfast was excellent. WIFI was easy to connect to and functional.

The hotel is easily to get to by the airport train (that's how I arrived). It's just a short walk from the National Theatre and good manageable with one of these rolling suitcases, even in winter. The staff at the desk was more than welcoming and very helpful and my room was quiet, although it was facing the street. Some... More
