Thon Hotel Opera
Ranked #7 of 102 Hotels in Oslo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 June 2012

This hotel is very well located allowing guests to walk to most major attractions and especially good for access to the central train station in Oslo which is so close to the hotel you don't need to cross one street. Even if you are not going to any other cities in Norway there is an excellent train service from the airport which is the quickest, cheapest,and most comfortable way to get into central Oslo. The service is called Fly-to Get. One other advantage of the train station is that there is a grocery store in the lower level. The new Opera House is directly across the street from the hotel and the central pedestrian only street begins just one block away.
The room we had was a good size with a view of the city and the hills and partial view of the harbor. The front desk staff were always pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was excellent. The hotel is rather modern and as such does not have a great deal of character but it is very functional.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor to get a better view.

Spent one night there on a business trip and i had a very pleasant stay: rooms are well designed in a very modern fashion, most of them got a view over the opera theater ( a must visit) and the bay behind it. Breakfast is good with plenty of choice and the staff is always very kind and service oriented. Finally, great location right by the central station, that is: you take the fast train from the airport and in less than 30 min you are in your room in downtown oslo!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new wing

We were in Oslo just 2 nights between locations and the Thon Oprea was great. We walked to it from the airport train stop at the central station (1 minute) and then back to the train station when catching the train to Bergen. Our room on the 9th floor was very quiet, though it was the weekend so no construction was being done. Fabulous buffet breakfast is included.

Room Tip: Request a quiet room.

The Thon Hotel Opera is next door to Oslo Central Station (Oslo S.) and the terminal for the airport express train. With regard to transport, a hotel can't be more central than that! And like the name says, the Oslo Opera House is nearby. The single room I stayed in was quite small, but with all necessary facilities. The breakfast was decent. Will come back.

Straight ahead of the pretty Oslo Opera in the Oslo Harbour, this hotel offers a splendid view, if you get a room with the view in the right direction... The hotel is quite big, which is obvious in the breakfast room in the morning, where you almost need to reserve a table the night before. The room was clean, and ok furnitured, but the shower had almost British standard => total lack of power. Location is very convenient if you come by train, but driving here is a mess, due to all the road constructions.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view to the harbour if you can.

Expensive standard quality. Nothing wrong, but nothing very good either.

Room Tip: Good view from high floors

This hotel is located 2 minutes (if that) from Oslo Central train station - take the South exit and walk across the taxi ranks, and the entrance is on the other side of the road.

The reception staff are all very pleasant, and breakfast was good, with a wide range of options. Oslo is expensive, and my company paid 1395NOK (about £150) B&B for a tiny single room. It was well equipped, with free wifi, a shower room and a desk, but the room was very small - nowhere to store clothes other than 2 hooks on the wall.

However, if you're in Oslo on business by yourself, it is a good option and very conveniently located.

Stayed: April 2012
