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. Room was well equipped, very clean and comfortable and breakfast was food although the breakfast room does get full. The location was... More

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.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel. We were very happy with the location and we were given a quiet room at the back of the hotel, which we had requested. The room was a good size and clean. Although the bed was comfortable I have to say that the pillows were the worst I... More

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

Stayed in Thon Hotel for just an overnight stay but the double bed room was spacious, free wifi, great views and close to the city center. Staff very helpful. They helped us by saving a lot by taking the bus to the airport rather than the very pricey taxi. Because we had an early check out so they kindly prepared... More

I visited Oslo both privately and in business and found the Thon Hotel Europa a nice and centrally located hotel close to everything. The tram right outside the building and subway and commuter trains five minutes walk from the hotel. The room was comfortable and the breakfast completely fine with everything I needed fresh and tasty.
