The hotel was clean and comfortable. The room furnishings had a few dents and chips, but nothing to interfere with comfort. Staff was friendly, efficient and helpful. The Thon breakfast buffet was superb with cold meats, cheeses, salads, fruits, smoke fish and hot egg dishes, waffles and Norwegian breakfast accompaniments (beans, fish cakes, sausages, potatoes, etc.). Location is close to... More

The hotel has everything you need, it is excellently located; very accessible. The shuttle bus to the airport stops next door. Its most impressive feature is that the staff is extraordinarily friendly and helpful. Breakfast is splendid, and the internet works very well. Still, it is a bit surprising that the is not carpet on which you can step after... More

A small hotel that made my conveniece easier in winter Oslo. Some minutes walk away from city center, clean and hospitable. Some stuff of the hotel seemed old and some easy-thought comforts were lacking, like more electric supplies in the room at approachable spots. Brilliant personnel. Rasmus' and Tajime's smiles should be on tourist guides globally. Thank you guys for... More

While the location of the hotel is great and the staff were friendly, I would not say that it is a family friendly hotel. Our room, there was myself and my partner and our daughter, was small - there was a couch bed set out for our daughter and two single beds for us, there was very little storage wardrobe... More

Dear Dave, Thank you for positive review. First of all let me express my apologies that you found the room to be a little inadequate for a family stay. Unfortunately our bathrooms are on the smaller side for a family so i really understand that. We do however have some bigger rooms than the one you were given. I do... More

Arrived and had a great welcome by the reception staff.. Helpful and smiling. Great room, big and spacious. Good bed, but maybe a little soft. TV is a bit small but the minibar is full and even have some wine. A bit noisy in the night from the disco/bar under the hotel. Breakfast is great with lots of good stuff... More

We stated at the Thon Europa over a weekend in November 2014. We arrived early evening on a Friday and stayed until Sunday. The check-in was very efficient and the check-in agent was very pleasant and helpful. The rooms in this hotel are relatively small but not uncomfortably so. The bedroom was fine however the bathroom is very small and... More

Stayed at the Thon for 2 nights Sept 13-14 2014. Within walking distance of the train station and very centrally located. Room was very small by US standards, but beds were comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful, the people behind the desk were very helpful. I would stay here again.
