Stayed in a lot of Thorn hotels sometimes the rooms are small but comfy beds, nice location, would recommend the Chinese restaurant called Dinner that are close by. Breakfast included
and clean and tidy.

I really enjoyed my stay at Thon Hotel Cecil. The hotel is in a prime location, a few steps away from the ferry, shopping, and many other attractions. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. I was relieved that the hotel sells a European plug adapter at a reasonable price (150 Norwegian Kronor) after I lost mine on the overnight cruise to Oslo. The breakfast, served in the atrium, is fantastic. Rooms are very clean and beds are comfortable. I wish the sitting area in the lobby was a bit more spacious, but I suppose the breakfast area in the atrium makes up for it. I would definitely stay here again if I return to Oslo!

Hi Faiza4!
Thank you very much for your wonderful review and for staying with us. There are few hotels that can beat our location in Oslo. Many of our regular guests call Thon Hotel Cecil “home” and our staff is marvelous with a strong focus on service and quality and they take their pride in their work. We also wish for a more spacious sitting area in the lobby but unfortunately there is no space and our large breakfast area makes up for it. We truly hope to see you and all of your friends at Thon Hotel Cecil.

I spent one night at the Thon Hotel Cecil and very much enjoyed its central location at walking distance from all main attractions in the center of Oslo, friendly service (including tips on where to park our car on the street cheaper than in the hotel's garage), and plentiful breakfast buffet in a bright and sunny covered inner court. The room itself was simple and small-ish, but clean, nicely fitted, quiet and furnished with all amenities. Definitely going there again on my next stop in Oslo!

Very nice botique hotel right in the middle of what ever you want to walk to in downtown Oslo. Easy walk to the downtown shopping, restaurants and the waterfront to catch the boat tours to the Kon Tiki and Viking measums. Great staff. Fantastic breakfast buffet. Quiet location. Clean rooms. Couldn't ask for more. Easy walk to the central rail station.

Just completing a two night stay here. Very clean hotel with nice rooms. Very nice breakfast served in the atrium. Hotel's two greatest assets are its location in the center of Oslo (walking distance to lots of attractions, the harbor and public transportation if you want to go further out) and its pleasant staff.

The hotel is situated near Karl Johan. Walking distance to tourist attractions and shopping. The room we had was small but clean and well kept. There is a nespresse coffemaker in the reception with free coffee. There are plenty of bars and resturants near the hotell. The breakfast was good.
We had a pleasant stay.

Stayed one night in May. Found hotel without to much trouble. Parked in garage under hotel, this was booked in advance and cost extra. Staff was very friendly. Room small but fine and clean. Hotel is situated in the middle of central Oslo, only short walk from main street Karl Johan. No noise, quiet hotel. Breakfast buffet was very good, lots to choose from. You could even make your own waffle. Will stay here next time we go to Oslo. Very affordable hotel, good location, helpful staff.
