Reviewed 22 February 2014

The hotel was clean with helpful, friendly staff. Although the rooms were not in a particular style of decor, it was very large. The dining area was bright and modern with a great choice of food for the breakfast buffet. Best of all, the hotel is ideally located near the train station, the Opera House and other sites. At the time of my visit, the front entrance of the hotel was being renovated.

The hotel is conveniently located between the Opera House and the railway station and despite the dull rather off-putting exterior, the inside is modern and clean. Our room was overlooking the square next to the railway station and more than met our expectations. A good buffet breakfast set us up for the day. Tea & coffee-making facilities were in the room along with a mini-bar. There was an ice machine along the corridor, and for those wanting to keep fit, there was a small gym. To sum up, a comfortable hotel and although nothing special, we would definitely be happy to stay there again.

We stayed here for a romantic weekend in a superior room with a double bed, sofa and two chairs. The room also has a veranda, but we satyed in winter so we did not use it. Beautiful view of the opera house. Large bathroom, but you can tell the room needs some renovation.
Very nice brekfast buffet.

Very well placed, near everything. The design of the lobby is very interesting (even if you don't sleep in the lobby ...). Talking about sleeping, rooms are nice and well equipped (lots of plugs), clean, but not very large. But you're in Scandinavia, rooms never are large ... Furnitures of the room doesn't fit with the design of the lobby. Given the size of the room, it could be more design-orientated, minimalist but comfortable would be great.
Last but not least, extra point for the heating floor in the bathroom, and the breakfast is absolutely amazing.
Great place. I'll come back, for sure.

An excellent hotel which will have stunning views over Oslo fjord, once the building work outside is finished. Handy for the central station, metro and shopping areas. Good sized rooms, reasonable bar and excellent restaurant that does a substantial breakfast in the mornings.

Upon arrival in Oslo, we took the Flytoget directly from the airport into the main train station of Oslo (Oslosentralstajon). The Thon Hotel Opera was located right next to the train station, making it very easy to get to with all of our luggage.

As soon you walk in, you can tell the hotel is very modern, but with a classic feel. The lobby is beautiful and it has different areas that are perfect for bringing in quick-to-eat food or just sitting down and relaxing to play cards.

Each morning, a complimentary, full buffet breakfast is served and this was by far the highest quality breakfast we received during our time in Norway. The baked pancakes were especially unique and delicious, as well as the freshly squeezed orange juice.

The staff was quite helpful whenever we had any questions about the hotel or Oslo. At one point we found our room to be a little bit cold and within 2 minutes they had a portable space heater brought up to our room.

Our room was quite spacious, especially for European standards and the bed was very comfortable. The room also had an excellent wi-fi connection.

Overall, this hotel was an excellent choice for the quality of the room, the service of the staff and the location inside of Oslo and we'd recommend it to all visitors to Norway's capitol city.

Stayed in Thon Opera during a week visit while attending a conference. The location is just in–front of Opera house and accessible though overhead walking bridge. The hotel has very friendly front desk staff. I enjoyed the breakfast with variety of options that encompasses vegetarian. Commutation is very easy as hotel is situated next to Oslo central. Overall, I enjoyed my stay.
