“M46 "wonderful no frills hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

I had a short stay and I was very pleased with the accommodations. It's a no frills hotel but the room was very clean and the breakfast buffet was varied and good. I would recommend it to others who need somewhere close to the airport for an early morning checkout and departure..
I want to add, though, that the receptionist on duty the afternoon of May 8 was much was very helpful and pleasant as opposed to her counterpart on duty the evening of the 9th.

Because the Thon Hotel Gardermoen is labelled a "budget" airport hotel, my expectations were low. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Rooms were clean and quiet, staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffet was varied and delicious. The hotel does not have a lot of extra frills, but for an overnight stay is just fine. The breakfast buffet included cereals, muesli (nuts, seeds, bran), fresh fruit, milk, yoghurt, kefir, and a selection of breads, jams, cheeses, meats, and vegetables (tomatoes, cucumbers, etc), some warm options (scrambled eggs and sausages), and a selection of loose teas, bag teas, coffee, and juices. We arrived for our flight on time, well rested, and very well fed - more than I can say for many airport hotels!

The hotel is a 15-20 minute shuttle ride from the airport (70 NOK). The location is not convenient if you want to explore Oslo city, but just fine if you're just staying overnight and catching a flight.

This is a hotel meant as a waiting room for the plane, and nothing more. It gives you a bed and a breakfast in the middle of nowhere, and to get to the airport do you have to follow the shuttle bus at a prise probably not far from what you will pay for the train from OSLO S to Oslo Airport, Gardermoen. If you have to get up really, really early to catch your flight could it be a good idea to stay the night here (or to you might as well consider spending the night waiting in a chair at the airport). If you have got a little more time in the evening, or the next day before your flight, is it far better to look at one of the hotels in the city, for example Thon Hotel Astoria from the same hotel group. It is in walking distance from the main railway station Oslo S. And there you have the shops and restaurants around you, there is nothing of that in the industrial area around Thon Hotel Gardermoen.

Det er et overnatting hotel med god beliggenhet, enkel service og rimelige priser. No pretence, just delivery on promise, no less, no more. The staff is friendly, diligent and efficient. Didn't get chance to have a breakfast there due to the very early checkout. Keep up the good work! Thank you very much:)

We knew this is a no frills hotel but since we had to take our flight early in the morning, we'd rather stay here than spend the night in Oslo city. We didn't expect much but were pleasantly surprised by the overall condition and ambience of this hotel. Staff are great, room is much cleaner and bigger than many of those we had paid high price for and best of all ... the superb breakfast that came free. It was a generous spread of different meats, bread, cereals etc. I would definitely come again. A warning here - please give ample time if you are taking the shuttle to the airport. The shuttle didn't come at the expected time and when it came 20 minutes later, it was already packed and we had to wait for the next round. We literally ran all the way to the departure gate!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

We stayed two nights on two separate occasions. First in room 303, then room 505 all on the first floor. Overall checkin and checkout was fine. There are 2 Thon hotels so you have to be sure which one you are going to. The bus between airport and hotel is easy and our hotel was the 2nd stop.

Breakfast is normal Scandanavian fare and the food is ok; but there is a McDonalds about 500m away. The hotel does not serve dinner or lunch but the other Thon Airport Hotel does. You can order 'room service' which consists of a local pizza delivery service.

Beds are small single ones. There is a small flat screen TV with 1 English channel--CNN. There are 3 chairs, two without backs, a desk and phone. There is no hair dryer, no tissues, no safe, no frig. The free wifi works well as do 2 PCs in the breakfast area. The bathroom floor is heated! Lighting is good and the closet has 5 hangars. Nice shower without any soap. Only shampoo from a mounted squeeze bottle, but no conditioner. The electronic door key card took 2 tries normally to get it to open.

Not a bad hotel compared to other more rural properties.

Room Tip: Ask for a 'quiet room'.

Although the hotel was the cheapest in the area, it is very overpriced for what you get. The receptionists were friendly enough, while the breakfast attendant was not very friendly at all. The TV in the room was not working properly as we could not adjust the volume with ease. The TV resolution was also very poor and there was constant "snow" on the screen. There were also no mini-bar which is very inconvenient especially in regards to the fact that there is no food available for sale in the hotel itself, and storing your own food gets hard without a mini-bar. Will probably stay away from this hotel in the future.
