“Good hotel for a vacation in Oslo area with a car”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Hotel is clean, with very good standard. Friendly and helpful staff. Quite big room comparing with other hotels in Oslo. Enough place for car parking. Easy to drive anywhere starting from such as E18 and E16. (About 15 min walking to the train station Sandvika if you don't have a car.). Sandvika storesenter is the neighbor where you find a lot of shops and eating places. Or a few minutes walking to Sandvika center.

Room Tip: Rooms on E18 side may be not so quiet.

My company use this hotel a great deal being minutes from one of our Norwegian offices - the rooms are more than adequate, free wi fi as in all Thon Hotels.
The hotel has undergone some refurbishment - the reception now in a more usual place ie in fornt of the doors and the restaurant has also undergone a revamp - all in all a very much better place - well done Thon Hotel

Excellent service, good location. Interesting interior - open lobby and restaurant - it is very urban and at the same time cozy. Nice, smiled and helpful stuff. I really liked the idea of someone offering me cappucino and muffin while I have breakfast. We had very good dinner as well.

As Thon hotels go, this one is similar to the other hotels of this chain. It is OK for business, but I wouldn't pick it for a holiday except for a one day stop over. The name might make you think it has a view over the Oslofjord, it doesn't. The restaurant is not bad, but I have had awful service experience at times. When you have breakfast, don't forget they have a Nespresso machine for you, that almost compensates for the bad service in the restaurant.

I have stayed in this hotel 6 times over the last 6 months on business. The rooms are big and have all usual appliances but are quiet dated. The rooms at the centre of the hotel do not have any means of fresh air because the window overlooks the bar and lobby. The AC is very noisy and not very good in all rooms I have stayed in. The gym is very good and not usually very busy. The breakfast is excellent with a wide variety of hot and cold options and the breakfast staff are very helpful. The reception staff are very helpful and very nice. The hotel is very close to a huge shopping centre, bus stop and the train station is a 5min walk away. The hotel provide a free shuttle bus Mon to Fri to the local business areas which is a brilliant service. The worst thing a the hotel is definitely the restaurant for evening meals, I have tried it 4 times in the 50+ nights I have stayed there and every time it got worse and worse. The menu is very small, never changes, over priced and just very poor quality!!!! Thankful there is some lovely restaurants within a 5min walk of the hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room with an external window!!!!!!

Nice big room, but a little bit outdated. Service is good at the reception and in the restaurant. Excellent breakfast buffet - free coffee, tea, water during the day. Free shuttle bus to the office. Hotel is 10 min walk from the train station but is no real problem. The most of the walk you can use the shopping mall, nice for rainy days. Oslo-fjord is nearby, approximate 10 min walk.
