We stayed one night at Thon Slottsparken and considered it overall a very good hotel, although some things could be improved. We arrived a few hours before the official check-in time and were told that check in was at 3pm. We got the impression that they seem to have a rule not to let guests check in earlier at all,...

Located next to the park where the Palace is, this hotel is within walking distance of most sites. Rooms are typical Scandanavian. However, hotel parking is limited to six spots so don't count on that. Luckily, meter parking is free after 5-6 p.m.

Many newly renovated rooms and renovated reception. The absolute plus is the central location with walking distance to most Oslo sightseeing attractions. Serviceminded and friendly staff throughout the hotel. Remember to ask for a renovated room as some rooms are still not upgraded. Outdoor hotel parking available for a fee and some street parking with meters in the area.

First I have to say, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and the location is practical. The breakfast is also very good,. However, the room we have is a "Superior" room, which is an overstatement. The first room we got looked like it had just survived a hard night of partying (it was at least clean). Lamp shades askew,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, and really liked it. It has good amenities and is reasonably priced. The location is good, across the street from the Castle Park in a quiet area away from the touristy part of Oslo.

Stayed for one night. The hotel is a five minute walk from the station at National Theatre, and right beside the Royal Palace. Stayed in a room on 6th floor - very quiet, plenty of space, and a kitchenette. Had breakfast in hotel - plenty of choice.
