Cozy rooms, clean. A little small. Easy to access from Central Train station if you use Rick Steve's directions to follow to the hotel. There are many Thon Hotels in Oslo; when we got lost in other parts of town, we'd go into another Thon hotel to ask for help. All were helpful. Excellent breakfast at this one. Good value... More

Stayed at the Thon Spectrum (don't judge all Thon hotels in Oslo on this review, there's a lot of them in this city) for a business stay. It's not located at the best part of town, but it's certainly no pandemonium out there. Let's just say it's a reasonably priced place to stay in this very expensive city. The good... More

I walked to this hotel from Oslo station which should have taken no more than 10 minutes, however unlike the other Thorn hotels in Oslo, this one proved hard to find and was in a area of the city that I would rather have avoided late at night. The receptionist was very friendly and efficient and access to the room,... More

Really good location in city center. Well-trained and friendly staff on reception desk. Proper buffet breakfast. Ordinary rooms, but the window (from floor to ceiling) was really nice. Good value for the money (but, of course, Oslo is overpriced)

The location of the hotel is very good, although it is a rather noisy environment in the weekend. When you have a room in front of the hotel, you will have a lot of noise. Unfortunately, the room does not offer airco. During my stay, the weather was great, so airco would have come handy. Not everyone on the staff... More

Clean and no nonsence hotel with good location for my use. I mostly use this hotel when I need a bed in Oslo. Short distance to the railwaystation, and good restaurants nearby. Good shoppingfasilitys too.

It was a perfect room. Very good. Happynes for a visit in the Capital of Norway. We like it very much you see. I hope to visit this hotel some other time. It is very good for concerts at Spectrum and visit to the Opera area.

This is a budget hotel. Rooms are smallish, and if your room faces the street it can be a bit noicy. However the rooms are clean, the internet works well, the breakfast is good with a large variety of dishes to chose. The location close to the train station is great, althoug the surroundings close to the main entrance is... More

Nothing fancy. Small rooms which are very clean and decently furnished. Basic but good breakfast buffet. A bit noisy on weekends. No extra services on premises but the location is very central. Staff is friedly and helpful.

Stayed 2 nights in the weekend at a very favourable price. The hotel was quite busy, many families. The reception staff was friendly enough. My single room was quite small, but had everything I needed, except a cup (there was a hospitality tray for tea and coffee, but no cup). There is no minibar, as expected in a Thon Budget... More
