Very central downtown. Good value. Do not stay in a room at the front, they are small, very (traffic) noisy and the beds are small. It was no problem to change to a better room at the back.
Parking only in expensive public garage. Breakfast is great!

Room Tip: do not stay in a room facing the street

We stayed at this hotel on our first night in Norway. It was such an easy walk from rail station. We had a very small - even odd shaped - room and then on our last night we were on 4th floor....much
Better. However this super cheap, very well located hotel was soooo clean, bed very comfortable,
Very peaceful and to top it all off..., breakfast was brilliant!

Room Tip: If possible, not on top floor!

The hotel was nice, very friendly and helpful staff.
The room itself was of an average size, clean and nice beds.
But the bathroom was much too small, the water from the shower was running out, under the toilet and almost into the room. The bathroom was not as well cleaned as the room.
The breakfast was OK, it was enough but the scrambled eggs were oversalted and there were no buns.

Room Tip: There is no restaurant in the hotel, only a breakfast room. But in the same building there is a Turk...

Everybody warned us that Norway is expensive and they were right. This hotel is an excellent value. It is very clean and the breakfast was really good. Our room widow opened above the Indian restaurant next door so it is a good thing that we like curry because you can smell the cooking as well as hear it until 10 ish. We ate mostly fast food and kebabs because it was at the end of our trip and the sticker shock of eating out was getting to be a bit much.

This property is just a short walk away from the Central Station. The rooms are small, but clean, and the bathrooms tend to be a bit small -- but I've seen smaller!
The staff was very attentive and helpful. The breakfast afforded a good selection of items. My room was on the second floor, right above a service entrance, so I was occasionally disturbed by cigarette smoke wafting it's way up. It was warm at night, so I had to sleep with the window open. The noise of the Turkish band playing in the restaurant in the adjacent building didn't help my sleeping.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street may be quieter here.

We stayed at the Thon Astoria for one night at the beginning of our Norway trip and another night at the end. Both times, we were greeted by friendly and helpful service at the front desk and provided with a clean room. The bathrooms are a bit claustrophobic, but the living area was spacious enough for us to move around comfortably. The breakfast each day was awesome, as well. The location is also a plus, as this hotel is a short walk from the train station. We would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at Thon Hotel Astoria for just one night, but I was actually sad that I shouldn't stay longer. It is a really nice, comfortable, clean and good hotel. I enjoyed my double room very much, and I think that the staff provided very good service whenever I asked them questions and at check in and check out. They were smiling and welcoming.

The hotel is situated in the very center of Oslo, very-very close to the main pedestrian road, Karl Johan. Anyway, it wasn't noisy at night, and I slept very well in my nice bed. The breakfast wasn't amazing, but the wifi was great, and I really have nothing to complain about.

Oh, btw, just a tip - everything is SOOO expensive in Oslo, also foodwise. But there's a great little Thai restaurant right next to the hotel, called "Thaibollen" or something like that. The food is excellent - and cheap compared to Norwegian standards - enjoy!
