For an average hotel, this is clean and comfortable. Good location. With the expectation of it being clean, comfortable and average I would stay again. Bathroom and bedroom is small and the shower design ensures water covers 75% of the floor by the time you are finished. Breakfast is average. You need to pay a suppliment for TV. In line... More

I got a nice big room with a comfortable bed. The breakfast however is really bad with watery scrambled eggs, watery meatballs and few healthy options. The service in the reception is ok, but I didn't get todays paper or water even though I am a Thon member (and you're suppose to receive that when you're a member). I will... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3 days in late June off the back of a 5 week stint in SEA, the result of which was something we called "Asia Hangover" (with all possible due respect) To come to a place so quiet and calm as Oslo was a appreciable difference. Oslo is a quaint and condensed little city,... More

Good choice of hotel if location is important to you. Less than a 5 minute walk from transport (National Theatre metro station, #11 Tram line and airport bus "Flybussen") and attractions (Royal Palace and Historic Museum), 15 minute walk to waterfront district (Aker Brygee). Hotel amenities such as complimentary tea/coffee from nespresso machine in lobby, free wi-fi and included buffet... More

As you start your adventure to your room the hallways are in need of repair and look worn. Open your door and the room was dirty and needed repair. For example there were divots in the wall that had been patched but not painted. The base around the walls was dirty and the last occupant's hair was still on the... More

This is a city hotel. Nice and comfortable rooms. Lots to choose for breakfast, meat, cheeses, fish but also several warm dishes. And you can make your own waffles. The distance to the city centre is about 500 meters. It is not a fancy hotel, but a good and clean city break hotel.

The hotel is centrally located and easy to find. Level of service is good, and both front desk and breakfast waiters did a good job. Breakfast was ok. No x-factor to it, but you get what you need. Rooms are well equipped with a typical Thon Hotel design => modern and slightly boring. WIFI was fast and easy to access... More

We stayed here last year on our trip to Oslo. It was close to attractions we wanted to go to, staff is very friendly and accommodating.
