Dear guest. Thanks a lot for taking the time to review our hotel after your recent stay with us. We highly appreciate guest feedback, as this helps us to further develop & improve our hotel. Delighted to see that you have enjoyed your stay with us, and we are very thankful about your kind comments regarding the rooms, room features & beds. Also very pleased to see that you enjoyed our breakfast. We are currently constructing a new "open-style" kitchen, and a new part of our restaurant to increase the capacity, and to serve a even better breakfast. We plan to re-open the mentioned facilities mid/late February. During the spring of 2019, we will also launch 47 new guest rooms, a guest lounge with a amazing view over the city center of Oslo, and a well-equipped in-house gym. We are looking forward to welcome our guests to the "new" Thon Hotel Cecil later this year. Everybody that works here at Thon Hotel Cecil would once again like to thank you for your review, and even more importantly that you stayed at our hotel during your visit to Oslo. Welcome back! Kind Regards, Ole F. Eidslott General Manager

Dear guest. Thanks a lot for your review. Guest reviews & feedback is very much appreciated, and we do learn something from all guests that chose to give us their honest opinion. Thanks a lot for your kind comments regarding the design at our property, as well as our location. When it comes to windows and air quality, you are right when saying that not all windows can be opened. This is due to the fact that the hotel faces a atrium. However, as a lot of guests do like fresh air - we have during the renovation of our existing rooms, invested a lot of money in a new ventilation system. So far - the feedback have been absolutely fantastic regarding the air quality. In addition, we do also measure the air quality on a frequent level to ensure as good conditions as possible. All rooms, can for your information also individually set the temperature in the rooms between 18 C - 24 C. At Thon Hotel Cecil we also have a large range of different rooms, and do also have rooms facing the street with windows that can be opened. Should you come back to us as guest later, please ask the front desk for a room towards the street - and we would be happy to assist you on the matter, subject to availability. When it comes to the breakfast hall, we are currently re-constructing the breakfast hall and our kitchen. During this process we have build a temporary breakfast room. This breakfast room are - of course not as nice as the regular one - or have the logistic/design that we would prefer. However, we think that most of our guests appreciate the fact that we serve a full breakfast to our guests during the construction period. Sorry however that you found the breakfast hall unpleasant, and we are sorry for any inconvenience caused. We are - for your information - re-opening our breakfast hall and kitchen by the end of February, the latest. Everybody that works here at Thon Hotel Cecil would like to once again thank you for your review, and not at least for choosing our hotel during your stay in Oslo. We hope to see you again soon, and wish you welcome back. Kind Regards, Ole F. Eidslott General Manager.

Dear guest. Thanks for your message, and sorry for the delayed reply from us here at Thon Hotel Cecil. We can offer a underground parking space, but we do have a limited amount of parking spaces, so a reservation is needed. If you e-mail us directly to cecil@olavthon,no, we would be more that happy to help you to reserve a parking space. When it comes to security, the parking garage is quite safe, as the garage is only open for hotel guests and a few that is rented out on long-term agreements. We do hope that this answers your questions. Kind Regards, Ole F. EIdslott General Manager

What is best way to get to cruise port from Hotel Cecil?
Dear Nancy, I'm not sure which cruise port you are referring to, but as far as I know they do not have any direct public transportation to the area around the hotel. I would recommend taking a taxi to get the easiest way here.

Dear Jorge. Thank you for your questions. We do have Superior rooms at the hotel - and they have a comfortable sofa bed for 1 extra adult og 2 extra child in the room. The hotel unfortunately does not have a gym, and our air condition system is run centrally in the building, so there is no possibility for adjusting the temperature in the room. Hope you got your answers. Otherwise feel free to contact us again. Best regards, Andreas, Booking Manager
