“A fantastic hotel in the centre of Oslo”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

I Went on a two-day trip to Oslo to attend the graduation of a former colleague. 10 ex colleagues travelled from Göteborg to attend the ceremony and dinner with family and friends to celebrate the occasion. We were recommended to stay at Thon Hotel Opera, Close to the bus, Railway and underground stations. I had booked a one-bed room and it was inexpensive, very good standard, Clean and perfect in every way. We arrived 10.30 already, but our rooms were available for check-in. The staff was very, very polite and eager to assist. A few of my travel mates had joined together and shared a double room with a sofa bed which was very spacy, and had a small balcony too. The view of the opera house and the waterfront was stunning. One more thing which deserves mentioning: The breakfast, included in the rate, was the most fantastic hotel breakfast I have ever experienced. The widest variety of Everything, so make sure you have penty of time to enjoy.

A large hotel directly opposite the central station, within easy walking distance of the centre of Oslo and its attractions. The area around the hotel is mostly a building site but it does have a nice view over Oslo Fjord, albeit now obscured by the new opera house.

The rooms are an average size but clean and comfortable with a good TV, basic tea & coffee facilities and a well-stocked minibar. There's free wifi which seems to have good coverage and was generally fast.

The breakfast buffet has a decent selection and good coffee. It can be a bit chaotic at busy times because tables are a free-for-all.

Overall the rooms are good and you can't beat the location for a central hotel.

This is very good hotel for the business trip. It is next to the railway station and you can go by train FlyToGet from the airport. And it is close to the main street so you can walk and choose from many restaurants in the evening. They have very good breakfast.

This hotel is VERY central, right near the train station and looking onto the main shopping street in central Oslo. The breakfast buffet was absolutely delicious... by far my favorite meal of the day. The room was typically but very comfortable and clean. Highly recommend!

This is the perfect location when you have to take the Airport Express Train at 5.20 a.m. on a cold winter morning. It's out the hotel door, across a court yard (busy taxi stand by day) and you're in the train station, all within 2 minutes. It's also close to trams, buses and a lot of shopping.

I stayed in a business room. For Oslo, it was a pretty decent room and the bathroom was lovely by any standard. The room had a balcony with chairs and a beautiful view of the Oslo Opera House. I didn't go to the free breakfast, but the paid lunch buffet was fresh and tasty though a little limited in variety. Internet worked very well. Lot's of construction going on at what appears to be the hotel's main entrance but you don't notice as its so quiet inside. Overall it was a very good hotel to stay at.

We stayed here on a Great Rail Journey from Norway to Lapland and this hotel is in a great position. it's right opposite the station ( a short walk). It's also very close to buses and trams, just a short walk away also. Near to the marina, which at the moment has a lot of building work going on. We had a lovely "old" fashioned looking room overlooking the sea on the 6th Floor, (don't go any lower), the bathroom was spotless like the bedding, lovely!! The restaurant was spotless and dinner very good, also the breakfast, there was so much to choose from it was lovely!
The reception staff were very friendly and always there to help with information around Oslo center, and the "sights" to see.

Room Tip: Don't go on the lower floors for your rooms, noisy and if you go higher and ask for a room overl...

This hotel is in a great location right next to the station whose forecourt it shares. But it does not feel like a typical station hotel being pretty quiet and with no frenetic activity. Access by road is not over easy due to enormous road re-organisation all around. These works do not however hinder the rail or foot passenger.
The public areas are overlarge - in particular the check-in desk is in a massive atrium with little to alleviate the starkness of it. Typically of modern hotels in Norway, the room corridors are very wide to accommodate the outward opening doors. This means that the rooms are correspondingly smaller. Having said that our room was nicely and warmly furnished with everything we needed there. The bathroom was fine and towels and bed linen new and spotless.
We were travelling with a group and were given a group meal in the large restaurant. This was only OK - a little short on quantity and missing refinement (some form of sauce on the roast duck would have been welcome). But, the breakfast buffet was excellent, enormous variety and kept topped up.
All in all we were pretty well satisfied. I would just suggest that you go out to have dinner
