“Great experience - Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Decided to pay extra for a larger room for our three day visit, which turned out to be money well spent. Our room was on the 11th floor with a view of the city and fjord from the balcony and was clean and spacious. Room had cooking facilities (microwave and hob) available but strangely no plates/knives or forks (no biggy as no intention of cooking) and also a fridge which we did use. Only thing missing was a corkscrew and the only fault (minor) I can say was that reception could not locate one in the hotel when we asked. Apart from that reception staff from arrival to departure were always pleasant and helpful. Excellent choice of hot and cold food for breakfast and free coffee (very good quality) available all day. If you could give it 4.5 out of five I would.

Room Tip: Higher the better if you want rooms with a view, go for the room upgrade.

Dear adey666,
Thank you so much for your comprehensive review. I'm delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found upgrading to a business room money well spent. It's correct that not all the rooms that has a kitchen (the majority of our rooms do) are equipped with knives, plates and so forth, but we do have rooms with fully equipped kitchens available for those who wants to do some cooking in the room. Also we should of course have been able to provide you with a corkscrew, so I apologize for us running out of those. I really hope that you'll choose us again on your next visit to Oslo. Welcome back!

Booked and payed on internet. I chose not the cheapest rooms, but a large nice one costing more. When I arrived early afternoon there was a line of people outside trying to get in - the electric doors wouldn't open. With only 1 young man on duty in the reception (only staff present?) it took some time to fix it. Got a room with a view - but my view was a grim dark view to a gray cement wall 3 meters away that with no sunlight coming down. Stayed there many times before, but the boy in the reception hadn't the guts to give me another one with some light coming in. Be aware of those rooms with no view, not even a backyard. Bed ok, room other ways ok, breakfast ok, location ok.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with NOT a view to a gray wall.

Dear Arvid Munthe J,
First of all, thank you for sharing your thoughts on your recent stay with us. Your feedback is very valuable to us and I have shared your comments with the rest of the staff so that we can use it in our constant strive for improvement.
In this case you had booked a standard room and I'm sorry to hear that you found it to be too dark. We were fully booked at the time and therefore wouldn't have been able to move you to a different room. Should you choose to return I would recommend that you book a superior or business room (these rooms are on the highest floors) or specify in the booking that you want a room higher up or facing the street. I hope that we can welcome you back on another occasion and that we will be able to offer you a better experience then.

Large clean and spacious rooms. Excellent location - 5 minutes to waterfront or downtown. walking distance to train station. Breakfast selection is excellent - food for allergic people (gluten. lactose, etc) Espresso machine in lobby was a great bonus given that a cup of espresso costs $4! Service at reception was also friendly and helpful. While not a real problem, improved mattress quality could make this hotel better. Overall. great value. Will come back.

It might not be the truth that all rooms have a nice view, however I have always stayed in rooms from the 8th floor and up.

The room is spacious and with nice furniture. There is even a kitchenette in some of the rooms.

The breakfast is a vast buffet with many different choices, always fresh and tempting.

I first stayed at the hotel in 2009, and it is still as good as back then.

Only had one night in Oslo and really enjoyed the stay at Thon. The location is really central and handy for the station. Our room was up on the 12th floor and we had a great view over to the opera house from the balcony. We had a mini-suite with a small bedroom, shower room, and living area with kitchen facilities. The only thing missing from the room was a hairdryer. Only other minor point is that the shower door doesn't do a good job of stopping the water cover the floor. Breakfast was fantastic - great choice, lovely bread and free tea and coffee available all the time. Wi-Fi was free and worked well. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room up near the top for a great view.

Dear Pijg,
Thank you very much for your excellent review. We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Regarding the hairdryer I can only apologize for there not being one in your room, there should normally be one in every room. We also keep some extra ones at the front desk, just in case. Finally we really appreciate that you took the time to provide us and the TripAdvisor community with your feedback and I hope that we can welcome you back the next time you're in Oslo.

I have often stayed at Thon hotels whilst on business travel, and appeared to have accrued a fair number of their points (including some points from places I am sure I have never visited - so "thanks" to whoever gave my Thon number in error). We decided to use some of these points for a "free" stay in Oslo.

This hotel turned out to be a good choice. Some of the floors have small apartments rather than conventional rooms, which offered us the flexibility we wanted, whilst the hotel also provided the good breakfasts that I have come to expect from this chain. Being on level 8 we had views across the Oslo rooftops, and the location is very handy for the central station, the main shopping area, several museums and a good range of restaurants.

Room Tip: For a room that actually offers a "panorama" you need to be on at least the 8th floor, pre...
