We stayed in this hotel within 2 weeks of it opening. Because it was so new, our cab driver couldn't find it, and when he did, we were very disappointed. It feels very isolated, and there's not much you can walk to from it. There is a metro supposedly nearby, but it didn't sound very convenient to us.
We arrived at the hotel at 1:30 a.m. after a long flight and bus drive. We were told at Reception that the computer was updating and that they wouldn't be able to check us in. Needless to say, I wasn't happy about that, and the man finally stopped the updating to get us checked in. The room was modern and clean, but the Free Wifi that was supposed to be available in the hotel did not work in our room. They suggested we use it in the lobby, but it's very loud and uncomfortable in there so that didn't seem like a good option.
We requested to be transferred to another Thon Hotel that could provide us with Wifi in our room like we paid for. The woman in Reception told us she was trying to find us something, but then proceeded to do nothing until we finally asked her again 40 minutes later if she had made any progress. Only then did she make some calls and find us another room.
For one of the first guests, we were sorely disappointed in this hotel. The service and location were terrible. Public transport in Oslo is very expensive, so spend a little bit more money and get somewhere closer to the center of the city. And if you do decide to stay here, call and confirm that the Wifi is working before you book.
