“Nice hotel for working traveller”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

I usually stay at this hotel when on working trip in Oslo. It's well located, just behind Oslo City, a big shopping center. Also short distance to buses, tram & local train. Not too fancy, but very nice and comfortable - also pricewise.

Room Tip: Rooms not facing the street are nice. Otherwise the traffic noise might distract those who don't...

On arrival we were given a room, which on inspection had the smallest double bed ever! After speaking to the reception staff, who were very pleasant and helpful, we were given an alternative room which was better appointed and had a bigger bed. The shower room was tiny.
The hotel is within walking distance from the railway station, however, the directions - through a shopping centre- are most confusing and it is easier to walk outside (less than 5 minutes).
We stayed on a Friday night and were told that breakfast did not start until 8am - this is much too late for many travellers. We were catching a train which departed at 8.11 so we had to miss this meal. This was very annoying considering the cost of food in Norway. We went to look in the breakfast room at 7.30 and there were a number of guests all trying to find something to eat.
We ate at the Italian next to the hotel and it was excellent.
If you want to see the sights in Oslo, definitely get the Oslo pass as it covers all public transport and entrance into a large number of attractions.

I largely enjoyed my stay here, although the lack of any temperature control for the room was a real shame as it was far too hotel so I did not sleep very well. This was a shame as otherwise this is a good hotel with helpful staff and large, clean and well furnished rooms. The breakfast was good too.

First I have to tell about bad side - only one for few Thon's hotels I visited before- never take single standard room - it's too small ( only for hobbits maybe:) ). But this small room was very functional, free WiFi was fast. There wasn't normal shower cabin , but warm floors excused everything. Tea's set is quite nice after walk in around snowing Oslo. Breakfast area was very cosy, the breakfast tastey and for any taste. It's a pity that hotel doesn't offer vaffels during weekend.
Location is very good - just 5 minutes through shopping center from train-station ( so weather isn't so important when you come there). The biggest bus stop is very close - just 150 meters. You can buy here Olso pass for one day that's very comfortable: most of museums are free, transsport is free, some good offer in caffees and restaurants..there's only one problem how to find so much time to visit and see everything in Oslo for one weekend:-)

There a many different Hotel Thons in Oslo so please make sure that you book the right one. I actually didn't end up at the one I expected (Hotel Thon Opera which is the one that is visible from the Central train station), but fortunately I ended up at the Hotel Thon Terminus across the street.

Hotel Thon Terminus is a nice functional hotel that is well located in central Oslo. Free WiFi and buffet breakfast.

Rooms are small, but functional. Clean. Tiny bathroom for one (like on a ship), but the foor was heated - very nice in December when I was there. One twin bed that was a bit too soft for my liking. Not cheap, but most alternatives in Oslo are just as/more expensive, so it does offer decent relative value in this expensive city.

We stayed at this hotel June 20 to 27, 2011. Aware of the street noise, we had a nice, quiet room on the 6th floor overlooking the breakfast room. The location could not be better any better. Minutes from Central Station, close the central bus station, short walk to Opera, close to downtown... The hotel was very clean and almost all the staff was very pleasant, helpful, and accommodating. They offer coffee/tea all day long in their reception area. Free Wi-Fi in rooms and a computer in the lobby for guests to use. Unfortunately, they don't do the dinner buffet I read about in some reviews during the summer months, but the breakfast they served was really good and saved us a lot of money. The only bad experience we had was the day before we checked out. We had to be at the airport by 7:00 a.m. and asked if there was any chance of getting something (anything) either the day/night before or around 6:00 a.m. when we had to check out. The answer was flat “no”. Was it because it was the receptionist we were not that fond of, or the hotel policy? Not sure. But it was pretty upsetting at 6:00 a.m. seeing the 150 NOK (about $50) charge added to our bill for a breakfast that started at 7:00, so we could not possibly have any of it. That was the only thing that ticked us off. Other than that, really good experience.

Room Tip: To avoid street noise, ask for a room overlooking the breakfast room. We called ahead, stressed we w...
