“Nice location central to town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

We enjoyed our stay and it was centrally located close to transportation and sights. Breakfast was good as well. Staff were efficient and friendly. Rooms were basic but clean. I would stay there again.

Booked this to stay with my 2 children as it was close to the centre of town. The staff were great with the children and made a real effort with them. There was a well equipped children's room too. The breakfast spread was superb!! The room was clean and quite large, 3rd bed for 2nd child was a sofa bed, which was so comfortable that I slept on it.

The only downside was the view from the back of the hotel, it's a dodgy area and they were obvious signs of drug taking. However walking out of the from the front of the hotel you were in easy walking distance of the main shopping street, the centre of the city and the Oslo fjord.

Overall a great stay.

Located five minute walk from Oslo central station, and within very easy reach of museum, park ect. Spacious and clean room, great buffet breakfast (spoiled for choice). Staff are friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: we were on the last floor, very quiet and with a beautiful view, despite the dormer window

I stayed three nights between business meetings in June. Reception doesn't look like much but the rest of the experience was great. Very comfortable and spacious room, good breakfast, and best of all, excellent free coffee available in reception all day and night. You don't get that in a five star hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Very good location too close to central station. Great
at value in a city that can be very expensive.

Located less than 5 minutes walk from Oslo Central Station, very handy for those early starts. Rooms are basic and clean, with TV, shower and simple décor. I was in an internal room with window opening into the central area above the restaurant, the room got quite stuffy. It is great value, staff are helpful. If you are starting a trip around Norway, consider some of the deals Thon hotels offer. They are a massive chain and the more nights you stay the more discount you get. Even if you stay in different cities. There is even a Thon hotel on Spitsbergen. If you are doing the Norway in a Nutshell tour between Oslo and Bergen, the train leaves soon after 8am, so this hotel is ideal.

Room Tip: A room with an external window

Thon hotels are everywhere in Oslo and they are similar to a Travel Lodge but with a bit more Scandinavian class. The good bits are that the Terminus version of this hotel chain is located within 4 minutes walk of the central station and bus terminal. The area is busy but as soon as you step in to the hotel the noise does go away. Reception staff were helpful and answered e-mails quickly. They also answered questions locally with knowledgable answers. The bedrooms are basic but very functional and clean. The breakfast was amazing - I've stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels that don't have the variety this hotel puts out. Everything was fresh and they even catered for my genetically fussy gluten intolerant girlfriend.

The bad parts, of which there were few but may ruin your holiday if you are of a delicate nature.
If you use the hotel car park (the one under the hotel) then be prepared to dice with damaging your car, its tight...very tight - Knowing what I know now I'd just use the one across the road and pay a little extra. Parking is expensive in Oslo - No way round it.
If you have an internal room as we did then they are dark and the only view is of the air up and the restaurant down...or another persons curtains. We were only in the room to sleep so that was ok.
Watch out for the cheap kettles in the room. The switches leak steam on to your thumb when you pour. True story!
As I say, none of this bothered us and we found the hotel to be very pleasant and good value for money (when you can get the discounted rate off their website). Would definitely stay again if only for the breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for an external room. I would guess the higher the better.
