Worst experience ever! Even before we arrived, staff was rude on the phone and tried to change our hotel room previously booked through booking.com. First morning staff walked in while I was standing naked and didn’t even bother to close the door. Staff completely lacked respect of visitors and even had the audacity to insinuate I was lying about the “walking in on me naked” episode. Regardless of the episode mentioned, this is by far the worst experience I’ve ever encountered in my 1000 hotel stays across the world. Would never recommend even my worst enemy!

Dear guest, Throwing people out of the hotel is an absolute last resort for us, and we are always sorry when such actions must be taken. During my years in the hotel business, I have rarely had to takes such measures. However, to ensure the welfare of our staff and other guests we saw no other choice when it came to you. You were aggressive towards our reception, and your gestures and acts on our property, in sight of other guests, were simply unacceptable. I do not care if this was your first or 1000th stay at a hotel, your behavior was none the less intolerable. The hotel and everyone working here prides ourselves on always being respectful to our guests and offering the best service possible. I do not understand why you would choose to write these lies, but I hope we can agree on one thing: You will not be visiting Thon Hotel Cecil again. Best regards Torje

I stayed for 3 nights at this very good hotel, located in the center of Oslo. The room (a superior room located in the newly rennovated wing of the building) was clean and spacious. The location could not be better... in walking distance to the many tourist attractions in the surrounding area. Staff went beyond my expectations and were always ready to respond to all my needs. Breakfast was also amazing, with lots of choices, from sweet to salty foods. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Dear Magenta, Thank you for your stay at Thon Hotel Cecil, and thank you for your lovely review! There is nothing we value higher than our guests experience at the hotel, and we greatly appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback. We are thrilled to see you enjoyed your stay with us. We, like you describe it, feel the hotel is neatly situated right in the middle of Oslo city center, and our superior rooms are a great value. The perfect upgrade for anyone looking to get an extra bit of space, that can be hard to come by in the middle of a city center. We genuinly hope you follow up on your wish to stay here again, so that we get the pleasure of welcoming you back at the hotel soon! Everyone at Thon Hotel Cecil thanks you for visit, and wish you a faboulous fall! Best regards Torje Thoresen
