“Good price for a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Thon hotels are everywhere in Oslo and they are similar to a Travel Lodge but with a bit more Scandinavian class. The good bits are that the Terminus version of this hotel chain is located within 4 minutes walk of the central station and bus terminal. The area is busy but as soon as you step in to the hotel the noise does go away. Reception staff were helpful and answered e-mails quickly. They also answered questions locally with knowledgable answers. The bedrooms are basic but very functional and clean. The breakfast was amazing - I've stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels that don't have the variety this hotel puts out. Everything was fresh and they even catered for my genetically fussy gluten intolerant girlfriend.

The bad parts, of which there were few but may ruin your holiday if you are of a delicate nature.
If you use the hotel car park (the one under the hotel) then be prepared to dice with damaging your car, its tight...very tight - Knowing what I know now I'd just use the one across the road and pay a little extra. Parking is expensive in Oslo - No way round it.
If you have an internal room as we did then they are dark and the only view is of the air up and the restaurant down...or another persons curtains. We were only in the room to sleep so that was ok.
Watch out for the cheap kettles in the room. The switches leak steam on to your thumb when you pour. True story!
As I say, none of this bothered us and we found the hotel to be very pleasant and good value for money (when you can get the discounted rate off their website). Would definitely stay again if only for the breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for an external room. I would guess the higher the better.

It is very close to central station and very convenient. Though you might say everything in Central Oslo is walking distance. Good rooms but if you are light sleeper do not take road facing room. Excellent spread for breakfast. But once again you find shower cubicle bit cramped. We did land up early from DFDS ferry from copenhagen but were bit disappointed that we did not get room till 3 pm!

Room Tip: If you want quiet room do not select road facing one.

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay here, and that you appreciated the breakfast here at Thon Hotel Terminus.

A walking distance to the main train station Oslo S. A central location and several public transport to all areas of Oslo.
Friendly and professional staff, helpful and available when needed. I made my request for a quite room and was accommodated.

I booked this room per the suggestion of the university I was visiting in Majorstuen. I really enjoyed the central location of this hotel and the walk ability/incredible public transport of Oslo. The staff is exceedingly helpful and friendly. Only minus was the room size, by which, for most standards of European hotels, is probably average. I have been spoiled as an American. It was a lovely stay!

Room Tip: There is no fitness center or pool for the record. Great location!

Good enough service, and an enjoyable breakfast.

Rather small rooms, and a bit noisy surroundings.

Costs more then it tastes. But I guess they can charge whatever they feel like for the location. Close to the sentral hub.

I booked two nights here following a trip to northern Norway. The hotel is well located just 5 minutes walk from the main train station, which connects to the airport by a convenient train.

The staff could not have been friendlier, and spoke perfect English. Also the hotel location is perfect for the city's main highlights, I walked everywhere but its also near bus stops and you can get day cards which also include museum entrance fees.

Hotels in Oslo are expensive, the price here seemed about average for a modest hotel. The room was spotlessly clean and a comfortable bed, bathroom was typically small (most in Europe hotels are), but also spotless and a nice hot, albeit crammed, shower.

The hotel includes a nice breakfast buffet which is a good way to save a lot over local coffee shops. There was some street noise late at night, but not ridiculous or unexpected for a hotel right downtown. I also disagree with some of the revues that the area around the hotel and train station seems dodgy - yes, a lot of teenagers hang out there, but i walked all over at night by myself and never once felt nervous.

Room Tip: Higher from the street the better if you are a light sleeper.
