“Top Rooms Next to Express Train to Gardermoen Airport”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

The rooms were excellent. they were recently remodeled and have musical, opera and dance motifs. My wife was impressed with the musical score pillowcases. The beds were first rate as were the bathroom facilities. Location of the hotel is very good for visiting the city center and next to the central rail station and the new splendid opera house. The breakfast buffet is also first rate. Service at the reception desk was not particularly helpful when asking for directions, however.

Room Tip: I gather all rooms are very good.

Just next to the Oslo train station and the Oslo opera, this hotel is conveniently located for both. The rooms are small but serviceable. There is a pot for heating water for tea or coffee. Breakfast is very good.

The window treatment does not exclude all light during the summer solstice.

Located just a hop,skip and jump away from the central station, overlooking the beautiful Oslo Fjord and Opera house. Welcoming staff and good sized clean rooms awaited us. The highlight for us though was the fabulous buffet style breakfast. A huge selection of great quality foods to choose from. A combination of local specialities and more traditional breakfast items.

Despite being close to the station, there was no noise pollution.

Oslo is quite a small city, and has a good network of public transport so it is easy to find the local attractions.

I would love to go back to Oslo, and would deffinately stay at the Thon Hotel Opera again. Highly recommended.

I know Norway is expensive but honestly..the room was a JOKE. Tiny..a berth not a room, and this in a prestigeous location overlooking Opera. Very underwhelmed..go somewhere else cheaper and better and where you could swing a cat.

Room Tip: Get two and knock them into one

Stayed here while on a weekend break for 3 nights, great prices and clean modern rooms. Right next to the station so is easy to get to from the airport. Easy walking distance to everything in the city centre.
The staff were very welcoming and happy to help with our enquiries of what to do while in the city

The Thon Hotel Opera was the perfect spot to launch our vacation in beautiful Norway. The express train to Oslo Central (S) was perfect and landed us just steps from the Thon Opera. That night we had dinner at the Thon and it was perfect. Try the tastes of the Sea dish. It has a variety of delicious seafood with white wine sauce that you will not forget!! The breakfast buffet was just as good with a terrific selection of cereals, eggs as you want it, bread, coffee, fish, various hams, coffee, tea etc.!!!
Service was impeccable and very friendly.
This is a must stop if traveling through or visiting Oslo. Look for our review of the trip by train to Myrdal/Flam. Again, hopped on the train just steps from the hotel and off we went.

Thon Hotel Opera is conveniently situated next to the "Flytoget" (train to the plane), the Central Station and, as you would have guessed, the magnificent Opera in Oslo, Norway. The main shopping area of Oslo City - Karl Johan - is a short walk away as well.

I stayed there for 1 night in conjunction with a Customer Experience Conference in Oslo.

Check-in was quick and professional and a small hick-up in the booking was managed well.

Pros:
- room 808 was decent with coffee/tea maker
- lightning fast and free internet throughout the property
- the breakfast on the 3rd floor was plentiful and a good experience
- the hotel listens on social media (you may not know the implication of that, however to me that means that they do care about helping customers the best way they can)

Cons:
- NOK 44 for a bottle of minibar water is simply way off the mark
- construction going on outside (June 2013)

Overall I enjoyed my short stay there, and will come back - mainly because of the convenience of the location. And if memory serves me right, I have had a pleasant experience with other hotels in the Thon chain of hotels as well.

Room Tip: Choose a room on 8th or 9th floor for a magnificent view of Oslo
