“Great base for Oslo visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I look for "relatively" inexpensive hotels a bit off the beaten path from which to explore new cities. The Thon Hotel Munch fit the bill. The hotel was located within walking distance from both the city center and (even more so) public transportation. The room was clean and big enough for two. We really enjoyed the enclosed shower as many of our stops through Norway had a simple curtain (or nothing) separating the shower from the rest of the bathroom. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious with a very good range of options. The staff was helpful with information and fixed a "to go" breakfast as we had to depart early on our last day. Overall, a very good experience!

The hotel is in 5 min walk from the main street of the city, all of the attractions are very close. The rooms are very clean, everything is new. Very helpful staff, very good rich breakfast. The shop 7/11 is just next to the hotel, also there are few supermarkets and restaurants around. Really, no complaints!

10 min walk to main street Karl Johan. Restaurants and food-store very near. Top staff, they are very helpful and clever, and they speak several languages. Much more than adequate breakfast for a budget-hotel. After having "googled" the hotel before arrival, I asked for a room with a view at check-in. I had seen pictures from such a room. They gave me room 901, which has a large balcony and a very nice view over Oslo. I loved it.

Room Tip: Room 901 has a nice balcony and a excellent view over rooftops and to Trefoldighetskirken

Nice hotel.. crowded and limited breakfast ... coffee was sad. hotel had bad internet wifi.. located quite centrally... next to a expensive car park that costs 240 NOK per day.. parked car in any many public parking that is free from 20-8 in the morning. best option when you dont want ot pay an arm and a leg. THIS means that this hotel has no parking of their own. but they give 20 % discount for using the expensive car park.

Hotel is 5 minutes walk to Karl Johan street - very central but quiet . The rooms were spotlessly clean and the breakfasts had plenty of choice and set you up for the day!!! Would recommend it to visitors to Oslo as a good central base. The staff were courteous and polite and always willing to help.

the location is very central and yet on a quiet street. The rooms have everything you need for a comfortable stay. Competent & hospitable staff, They packed us our breakfast the next day as we left early at 6 am for the fjord tour. A great budget hotel in Oslo.
a bonus: Free coffee and tea machine at entrance that works:)

Room Tip: rooms in the central part of the building have good wifi reception. Our room was right at the end of...

Online booking gave us a decent price for an Oslo hotel. The location is excellent, walking distance to the heart of Oslo, but on a quiet street. The room was clean, the beds comfortable and the breakfast was good-and the staff worked hard to keep everything replenished.
