“Good choice near station in Oslo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

This is a very conveniently located hotel if you are travelling to and from Oslo central station. It is in the heart of Oslo with restaurants and bars nearby, but rooms are quiet. For a stay of several days, we used the Thon budget hotel, but this one was very nice for a one day stop between train rides. It has the wonderful breakfast, included in the price, of all Thon hotels and rooms are clean, comfortable but basic.

We were not very satisfied during our visit. The receptionist was busy and didn't pay a lot of attention, we had the same with a womana at the reception. The rooms were okay, but small. Because of the good starting point for excursions we booked here. Unfortunately we will not come back here, although breakfast was okay.

The only good things are its location, but take into account it is a location surrounded by clubs and strip clubs, and the service from front desk. My local friends said not to walk around the area at night so that says it all. This is below budget. The noise from outside and inside is constantly disrupting your sleep and the room and amenities are woeful. No aircon, no room, bathroom terrible on space and basic quality - the shower leaks constantly so we left it on the floor of the shower where we found it, basically, try fitting a bathroom into a linen cupboard and you get the idea of space - seriously. I'm not sure what rooms they show in the pictures but it is not what a standard double actually is. I've missed breakfast now as I'm trying to get some more sleep but the slamming fire exit door from someone repeatedly (including through the night) using the stairs and not the elevator has put an end to that.

Excellent location near (but not too near) Oslo central station and main street Karl Johans gate. An easy walk to many attractions and to the harbour for the Fram museum etc. reasonably priced (for Oslo). Small room with no wardrobe, but clean and comfortable. OK for a 1or 2 night stay. Some construction work nearby so noisy quite early. Good breakfast, good service.

Located right by the main street Karl Johan and within walking distance from Oslo central station, the hotel definitely has got a great location. The rooms are average sized and rather simple, as well as clean. Has been staying here twice and ironically ended up in the same room both times. Ok prizing for such a central location. Please mind that it tend to get a bit noizy outside which may interfere with your sleeping.

Thon Astoria is located in central Oslo, just a short walk from the central train station (Oslo S). Many sites are within walking distance, and public transportation is also close. The hotel offers the basics: clean, small rooms, good breakfast, helpful staff. Good price for the great location.

Room Tip: My room viewed the courtyard. Ask if you want a street view.

was a reasonable price for this standard, which is right in the center of the city. but the noise(disco- like Music base) during night might be a drawn back..! room is small, then again what else do one need if only to sleep over. overalll clean and easy.
