“typicsal norwegian hotel”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

i find most norwegian hotels are very similar.
ikea type rooms which seem basic but usually have everything you need.

i booked a superior room and asked for a quiet side.
5th floor room was ok - a couple of englisg tv channels, decent wifi which was free.
toiletries were body cream, shampoo and shower gel.
2 single beds, table and couch - basic but comfortable.

breakfast was decent with plenty of continental choice plus a chef for fried eggs , omeletes etc.

didnt eat in restuarant at night as i had time to walk around the town.
theres a few restaurants in the shopping center accross the road from the hotel - its bigger than you think at first so keep walking.

i also ate in a restaruant/ bar down at the river which was nice (once you get your head round norwegian prices)

theres not really much to see or do in the area and i imagine most visitors are here on business.

i think its the only hotel in the town so next time i may stay in oslo and get the train.

tip - get train from airport as taxi cost me £200!

Dear arky25Scotland,
We are happy you enjoyed your stay and reviewed our hotel.
If you come back may I suggest you visit the car free island next to the hotel, Kalvøya.
The island is excellent for jogging, volley ball or just walking along the fjord of Oslo.
Next to the hotel you find Scandinavia’s largest shopping center, and we are only 15 minutes’ drive from down town Oslo.

This was my first visit to this hotel for business and had been told it was of average standard by colleagues. I would agree with this sentiment, it is not of the standard I expect to find in a business hotel i.e. no ironing facilities (an ironing room was in the basement car park), no kettle unless you are in an executive room (which I was), even then the tea/coffee was not replenished frequently.
The staff are professional and courteous and the breakfast has a wide variety of choice but the evening restaurant is to be avoided in my opinion. There is little choice on the menu and the restaurant lacks ambience - I would suggest visiting the shopping centre for a wider choice of eateries at better value for money. The shuttle services to the local businesses and station are useful which I think contributes as to why they have the convenience factor over other hotels for the business people working in the Sandvika/Horvik/Billingstad area rather than staying in Central Oslo and commuting out to these areas daily.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the main highway side if possible my room was on the other side of the hotel and I did...

I have been a regular guest for years because of the proximity to my office and have seen the hotel and its services deteriorating steadily over time. After bringing this to the attention of the management, I have now seen a substantial improvement and can commend both the management and hotel's staff on their effort. A few amenities I was always missing in the room are now there and I was given my favourite room at request. Thon Hotels has now won me back as a customer.

Room Tip: Location is excellent for those of us who have offices nearby. There is also a largeshopping mall ri...

I spent a few nights at the Thon Hotel in Sandvika and it was a good one.
The hotel is ok, rooms are quite conformable although I had to ask to change mine since it was overlooking the highway and the noise was really strong. They changed it with no problem and I appreciated it.
some positive notes:
- There is free internet WIFI access, decent.
- The breakfast was surprisingly good and with a wide choice of food.
- There is a sport bar where you can have some beers while relaxing after a day of work

This was my second visit to the OsloFjord hotel, and although very convenient for my work location, I had trouble sleeping here again. The extractor fans in the toilet stay on constantly, and in my particular room it was very noisy, and kept me awake. There was also some other machinery noises throughout the night.

There is a complete lack of Atmosphere as mentioned before by another reviewer, breakfast buffet was poor and the mini bar prices are ridiculous (I only had a packet of crisps and bottle of water - 110KNOK !!

Dear Glenn_D123,
Thank you for post on Tripadvisor. All rooms are maintained carefully, and your feed-back helps us to resolve problems.The ventilation in the bath room should not make any noise.
There is a shop next to the hotel if you want a cheaper alternative to the mini-bar.
We hope to see you back in our hotel.

The hotel was nice for just having a place to sleep. The room was quite big, but you missed to be able to open a window and get some fresh air inside. The window at the room only had view to the hotel lobby. The breakfast buffet was quite nice as well
