Having stayed at this hotel for a conference several years ago, I expected standards to be high and was not disappointed. The hotel is immaculate, staff in reception and restaurant were excellent. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was one of the best I have had in regular business trips.

Very basic rooms (business hotel). The spa/pool is ok and there is a little fitness room with a few cardio machines and some free weights. Staff i very friendly and the breakfast is above average. Rooms are quite but my room was very warm (no chance to turn the heat down) so I had to sleep with my window open... More

When to Thon Arena for the second time due to work at Norges Varemesse. We had in total 4 rooms, and they were fine, but nothing over the normal. The check in was a nightmare. I had to be there for each person to check in, and everytime they couldn't find out that I had to pay for all rooms... More

Very nice, big, modern hotel, 4 min walk from the train station. Had a double room which was good size, clean and nicely decorated. Sometimes it felt a bit chilly in the room. I think the heating it's not on all the time. The bathroom was clean but there are no toiletries, just hair-body gel in one. The breakfast was... More

The Thon Hotel Arena is ideal for visitors using the train service being just a few easy minutes walk from Lillestrøm station, with services to Oslo airport in just 12 minutes and Oslo equally easy to get into the centre of Oslo. The hotel itself is very spacious, lots of room for relaxing and reasonable size, modern bedrooms. The staff... More

I stayed here as i was taking part in an exhibition at the Arena next door. The staff were helpful and the room was average size but clean and adequate. The only thing was that they did not provide toiletries like shower cap, hand cream etc. The breakfast buffet was quite large with a wide selection for all tastes. I... More

We had a very good time. The hotel is fairly new. Room and toilet were comfortable, clean and well maintained. Breakfast choice and quality was... More

Nice hotel, pleasant staff. Very comfortable if rather small room, good modern bathroom, the room was warm and cosy with excellent thick quilt. The bed very comfortable. The room next door held a loud party on the second night, I complained to the reception and received a satisfactory resolution to the problem, after losing a full nights sleep. Excellent buffet...

This could have been a very good experience, as we were upgraded to a suite and the rooms were nice and spacious. Unfortunately the rooms were freezing cold! We called the reception, and someone came up to help us turn on the heaters which had been disconnected and turned off. After having waited an hour they were still not more... More
