Good for conferences, quick train to Oslo city centre which a short distance from Lillestrom station. Hotel and room were clean and functional. Breakfast was excellent and the provision of good Ceylon tea skimmed milk and fresh orange juice. The only drop down was the lunch at the restaurant, the quality and quantity of food weren’t as other luxuries hotel.

Good business hotel, walking distance from Lillestrom station, short train ride to Oslo or airport. Clean and functional, but really let down by poor wifi. Most business hotels have a wifi connection per floor but staff told me there was only one for the whole hotel. I was unable to connect to home or work as the connection kept dropping... More

Location: short walk from Lillestrom train station and bus terminal/bus stops, one stop away from Oslo S (if you take the express train lines). Amenities within walking distance Rema1000 supermarket, Big Horn Steakhouse (sells Western food eg steaks, fish, etc), Mirchi Indian Kitchen. More economical options: a burger place in the train station, a café a few steps from the... More

Short Business trip in October. This hotel has a perfect location with a nice atmosphere. Really easy to take the train into Oslo center. I would say that this hotel is sutiable/perfect for business and conferences.

This hotel lacks atmosphere, it is not at all cozy. For business and conferences, on the other hand, it is superb. Situated in Lillestrøm within walking distance from the airport shuttle train station, it counts as an airport hotel - but much better located. The food is good, and the hotel sports a swimming pool and saunas. Service I would... More

I was in Oslo on business for 4 days and stayed at the Thon Hotel Arena. Some of my colleagues were staying at the Thon Hotel Lillestrom. The Thon Hotel Arena was by far the nicer hotel with an excellent breakfast. The rooms were cleaner, nicer, and larger. The staff was very cordial and helpful. We were so happy with... More

As all hotels that cater to the sort of clients who attend exhibitions the Thon Arena style of business is centered towards the occasional guest. Double Rooms are adequate in size and amenities, single rooms being really very compact and reduced in living space. Breakfast is excellent and of high quality. Cleaning service of rooms inadequate. Dinner facilities nonexisting on... More

The hotel is located next to Norges Varemesse (fair centre), which was our reason to stay here. A bit expensive hotel but you will get value for your money at least on breakfast! There is parking places outside and some also in garage. Parking can be paid by Easypark system too, very handy since we have it in our home... More

I like this hotell very much. Good and standarized rooms. The business room is spacious and makes a couple of nights durable when on biz.travel. Great lunch and dinner. Friendly and efficient staff. Why not visit the best infian i Norway at the same time? It's called Mirchi and is only a 2 min walk from hotell.
