I have stayed in Oslo several times before over the years but never here.
Previously I've stayed in the Radisson Blu opposite if I wanted to have a hotel next to the station but , as its been a disappoinment previously, I thought I'd try the Thon Opera.
Overall it was good with just a few niggles
On the positive
1 Its incredibly close to the station. Turn left off of the Airport express train and its 50m walk away to the entrance.
On a cold Oslo day in December that makes a difference !
2 Check-in was quick and friendly.They also gave me a decent recommendation for Dinner locally.
3 Although small, the bed was comfortable and I slept well .
4 Wifi was free and fast.
5 I had my room at 1130 - I was grateful for that having arrived on the train.
Slight niggles were no in-room safe - a must surely in any decent hotel.Its such an old-fashioned practice to put your valuables in the 'Hotel safe' in reception.
Also the decor has that dark brown standard 80's motel/hotel furniture - so don't expect modern Nordic design !
As a room it really was a "single" room and I would have not have wanted to stay in it for more than 2 days. It must be the smallest room I have stayed in all year.
The iron and boards are also in the Gym entrance - which is more akin to a hostel than a modern hotel imho.
Niggles aside I would use it again for short trips into Oslo. Any longer than two days though and I'd head into town for another Hotel
