Reviewed February 4, 2014

The hotel gives off an online impression of being modern and so in time. I ordered a "superior" room, which would have robes and slippers included. I thought the term "superior" used to mean something. But no. The room was plain. Small TV, ok bed, small desk. Very small mini-bar. The sink was in the room and the shower was the smallest room created in mans memory. The toilet had to share space with the shower, as a result - the whole bath got wet during one shower.
It felt simple. It did not feel superior.
As I told the receptionist, all he said it was urban modern. If it is urban modern to have cheap small rooms, you are my guest. I am not any more.
I will not recomend this hotel to anyone.
Besides, the street outside the hotel is an open work site.
I give it 2 stars due to good internet.
Should you stay or go away: Go away!

Dear guest,

We are sorry to read that you did not enjoy your stay with us, due to the fact that your expectations to the booked superior room where not met. That is a pity.

In our presentation of our hotel and the room categories we inform about what our guests can expect of our different room types. We inform about our minimalistic, Scandinavian design and the bathroom solution which is a little outside the ordinary, with glass or frosted glass and the wash basin placed in the living room, designed to create light and a sense of space.

The superior room is presented as "A comfortable room with extra chair, sofa and space for relaxing or work. Private bathroom, with shower, hairdryer and toiletries. Phone, mini-bar, and flat screen TV with a variety of channels, as well as movies, and free wireless internet access. In addition to our standard amenities, we also include; a richer selections of toiletries, travelers magazine and bathrobe and slippers." It is a pity that you expected a big minibar, a big flat screen TV and a large bathroom, none of that is promised by our presentation of our rooms.

We will take your feedback with us anyhow and are happy the internet connection helped to make your stay a bit more comfortable. The construction of the pavement opposite to the hotel will be finished in a matter of days and we are looking forward to present the new Bogstadveien bit by bit.

My team and I thank you for your feedback and review and we hope you can reevaluate your opinion about our hotel and we would be happy to welcoming you again as our guest!

Best regards,
Susanne Petzold, General Manager

I usually do not stay in hotels in Oslo that often, but when I do - I stay at one of the Thon Hotels.

This one is a simple, but quite nice hotel - it is located in Bogstadveien, so if you are looking for some good shopping, this area have quite a pick. Nothing luxurious, the room was standard size, the bed was surprisingly good and a nice bath.

I did not have time for breakfast.

I have visited this hotel several times, both in connection with work and girls-weekend in Oslo. (Zara is next door and good for shopping in Bogstadveien) The single rooms are very small, but new and nice. Good breakfast. A very good 3 to 4 stars hotel.

Sparseness of the reception area may put you off but the rooms are very nice, comfortable beds, extremely clean and good value for money when you consider how expensive Oslo can be. There is no bar or restaurant, apart from breakfast room which is very good, but there are plenty of local bars and restaurants close by.

Room Tip: Broker bar within 50m worth a visit.

I stayed for 4 nights on a business trip and it was quite pleasant. The room was nice and clean, of minimal design and practical. It was quiet inside/outside (I asked for a room at the back and on a high floor because of the constructions on the high street and they happily offered one which also had a nice view outside). The breakfast was generous for all habits (English, French, continental, Scandinavian plus fruits, smoothies etc, all available from a buffet). The hotel staff was helpful and polite. I took the express from the airport to the National Theater and from there the metro to Majorstuen station. From that station it is a 5-10 minutes walk straight line on a shopping high street.

Good place if you simply need a good bed centrally placed. Easy to get to, whether from train or events. Since 200 words are needed, I keep writing ... and writing .... and writing.. and writing .... and writing

this hotel for business men is nothing more and nothing less than a hotel for business. some details however could be improved: the handle of my windows was broken and hidden behind a curtains, sign of not so keen cleanness. the working is table is tiny, the room is aseptic and not so functional (sink is outside the toilet room). On the other hand, it is very well located in the city center, and it offers a very generous and various breakfast buffet.
Constructions on the hotel's street (that is one of the main shopping street in Oslo) do not help to create a nice atmosphere in the hotel surroundings

Dear guest,

thank you for taking the time to share your experience of being guest at Thon Hotel Gyldenløve with us and others. It is nice to see that you were very happy with the service offered of the whole team!
When it comes to room facilities all our rooms are furbished in a Scandinavian, minimalistic stile. The bathroom solution is a little outside the ordinary and meant to create light and a sense of space. I am sorry that there was a problem with the handle for the window in your room, please feel free to contact us while being our guest, thus we have the chance to fix the problem and you get a so comfortable stay as possible with us!
Regarding the construction of Bogstadveien so is this work carried out strictly at daytime and a good night sleep guaranteed due to no car or tram traffic at all. The work is planned to be read by the middle of November 2013 and we are looking forward to welcoming you again and being able to present one of Oslo’s nicest shopping streets in a new and modern outfit! Welcome back to Thon Hotel Gyldenløve!

Best regards,
Susanne Petzold, General Manager
