Literally walk out of the train station and the hotel is there.
Very convenient for late arrivals or early departures.
Staff is very helpful. They went above and beyond.
Rooms are fine. Nice showers.
Breakfast is good.

Stayed two night at Hotel Thon Opera, terrific location right next to central station and within easy reach of buses, trams, main attractions etc. Lovely rooms, clean, quite, spacious, well equipped. Nice lobby to lounge around in with bar attached. Breakfast is another one of those great Nordic feasts and not to be missed. All staff are very courteous, friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: You have choice of city or water views, the rooms are the same so it depends what you want to look o...

Very nice hotel in a great location. and right beside the station for the express train to the airport. Staff were lovely; polite, helpful and efficient. Room was well equipped, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was very good too. Would stay at the Thon Opera again and definitely recommend it anyone visiting Oslo.

We stayed here for a weekend. The hotel is extremely close to the central station of Oslo only 200 meters. Its thus also very close to the train that takes you to and from the airport. The Opera house is also very close right in front of the hotel. We had a room in the newer wing. It was bright and large in a nice modern design. Bathroom had shower no bathtub and was very clean. Wifi is free and worked fine, there is a minibar and a large flat TV. The hotel has a nice bar in the lounge area and a restaurant on third floor where the breakfast is served. Breakfast was a large buffet with all you can ask for. Omelettes, scrambeld eggs, fried eggs, boiled eggs, bacon, sausages, american pancakes, home made muesli and different kinds of yoghurt. Smoothies, nespresso machines for coffee of your choice. I have hardly seen such a large variety of things at a hotel breakfast in Scandinavia. Also the staff were amazing keeping all tables clean. We got a very good deal on the room and so it was an excellent value for the money. Strongly recommend this hotel specially if you arrive by domestic train or by airport train. Its also an excellent choice if you are to visit the Opera for a performance. Some constructions going on round the hotel but they didnt disturb.

The best thing about Thon Hotel Opera in Oslo is the location right besides the central station in the heart of Oslo. The rooms are modern och clean. A little bistro and a bar is situated in the ground floor. Another good thing about the hotel is the breakfast. Its has an wide variety who satisfy every customers taste. The staff is friendly och gives good service.

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.
