“Amazing value in an expensive city!”
Reviewed 10 January 2012

Stayed for two nights at the Thon Hotel Oslo Panorama. Booked last minute and got some great rates on their own website - including breakfast. Checked in and walked into our room to find it more like a suite than a hotel room. TV, sofa, coffee table, desk and chair in one area...bathroom...and separate bedroom with wardrobe and TV. Staff were very helpful and full of information - they obviously have a passion for their city which is great to see and hear. Breakfast was superb - if I listed everything they had I'd be here all day...a great way to set yourself up for the day. Would definitely recommend the Oslo Pass from the tourist office - great way to get around and see lots of different things without spending too much in one of the most expensive cities in the world. Enjoy!

I have become a regular guest at this hotel, and there are three important reasons for this.
1) The staff is ALWAYS very helpful and friendly - you always get a smile and the best possible service. What about the handwritten message I use to find in the room welcoming me personaly back, and wishing me all the best for this stay? And along with the message, a small chockolade or other snacks? One evening I even got an upgrade to the penthouse suite and could enjoy eenie meenie to select which of the three bedroms would be best!
2) The rooms are large and comfy and with a "home" feeling that is great when you travel a lot. The furniture is of good quality and designware. The bath is warm and the shower is great. The views from the top floors are really great!
3) The location is perfect with walking distance to the airport express train and Oslo center.

My best regards to the staff at this hotel, the do a great job!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the upper floors.

VERY friendly reception. Room large, but the bedroom area had very little light: only lights were from reading lights. TV had no English speaking channels. No exercise room. Breakfast had nice selection, but the food was luke warm at best (cold eggs!).

The elevators (2) have one button to signal up or down. Meaning, I'm on the 5th floor and want to go down: an elevator appears that is going up, so I wait until the doors shut, and hit the button again; now the second elevator appears, only going up, so I do the same thing. And what happens? The first elevator appears again, and again going up! Solution: get on the first elevator that appears, even if it's going up! What a waste of time and inconvenience.

The heat is very difficult to control, meaning it's either too hot or too cold.

The bathroom sink has no room for toiletries.

The shower is actually one of the best I've found in Europe.

The sitting area is very nice and comfortable.

While there is no closet to hang clothes, the two hooks that are provided are sufficient.

There is no dressing table to store clothes, but there are drawers by the refrigerator, which work okay.

The refrigerator is large and roomy.

It could be much better than it is.

Room Tip: Hard to; the negatives are such that I probably won't return to this hotel.

Thank you very much for taking yourself time to comment on your stay with us. We are delighted to hear that our staff was perceived as service minded as we strive to make every guest feel at home here with us.

We are sorry that your stay with us did not quite reach your expectations, but despite your impression of our hotel we hope that you will reconsider your opinions and give us another chance or try our sister hotel Thon Hotel Opera the next time you are in Oslo. Please feel free to contact me, and I will see to your reservation personally.

This hotel is well situated, the interior is quite modern and rooms are great. We had a superior room with a view over the harbour and opera house, plenty of space and a nice balcony. The breakfast was excellent and a good starter for the day, which was also a real moneysaver giving the absurd food pricing in Oslo. The location was good, only a few minutes walk from major attractions. The staff was friendly and service minded.
I cannot think of anything negative about this hotel...except for the slow elevator maybe :-)
