“Breakfast Buffet”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Although a bit more than I usually spend on breakfast, the buffet here was very well set up with an excellent selection of food. Make your own coffee or take it from the machine ( even hot milk so your coffee does not cool), different teas, variety of flavoured yoghurt, want an omelet specially made ???? ....Cold cuts ( salmon), salad, YUMMY breads (even a rhubarb compote). I really like the orange juice machine that squeezes the fresh juice at the press of a button. Would definitely go here again. The staff are very professional and quick to please. My biggest complaint would be that one does not have ready access to washroom facilities if you do not have a swipe card (read- hotel guest) ....

Overall stay was good. Location is next to main Oslo station which is good if you are coming from the airport with luggage. Room was clean and large with a good bath and view facing the city. Although in the morning there was a bit of noise from the cleaners in the corridor and adjacent room. Checked in at the weekend and staff at reception were trainee and did not know all the information regarding the hotel benefits/loyalty points! Had to wait till Monday for manager to clarify things.

Room Tip: Good collection of breakfast.

One can't get to the hotel reception without going out of the Flytoget airport-train-station - it is only a short distance, but enough to get soaking wet in a pouring rain. So hold your horses and drink a nice cup of coffee in one of the many 7-eleven or Narvesen or other cafeteria inside the station building and wait for the rain to stop;-)
The breakfast-buffet is great and there is enough personnel to keep everything tip-top (even if there were plenty of barbarian-tourists to make a mess...) There is a cook frying eggs any which way you want AND they DO serve bacon, too. You just need to ask for it: the bacon is kept in an oven... mmm... crispy and hot.

The Thon Opera is a very good, modern hotel. The rooms are pretty much a standard size. The desk staff is helpful. It's convenient to several attractions. The ultra modern opera house is a very short walk away as is a square and a mains shopping street with lot's of shops and restaurants. At the moment, the only negative is that there is major street reconstruction going on in front of the hotel, so the view isn't pretty right now. The construction doesn't interfere with the use of the hotel nor is construction noise an issue. The breakfast buffet is top notch.

This hotel is right next door to Central station in Oslo, and just a hop skip and a jump from the fast airport train. The rooms are unremarkable but clean. Tea, coffee & Wi-Fi are included. The bathroom has no bench space and the shower is over the bath. Towels are thick but toiletries few. Beds are comfortable but rooms could do with thicker curtains to block out the late sun. Breakfast is wonderful with a wide variety of everything, including gluten free articles, whole fruit, cut fruit, lots of variety of yoghurt and breakfast breads. A great array of cheese and cold cuts and huge variety of hot dishes. It was a lot better than some 5 star breakfasts I have encountered. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Spent 1 night here. The reception is very Nice with an exclusive feel. The rooms Are average in their design, But clean and tidy.
Good location for tourists and business travellers, as the AirPort train is nearby.
The breakfast is amazing, make sure to try it!

Stayed as part of a group. Good location. Adequate room overlooking station. Quite hot. Breakfast good. Evening meal on arrival probably the worst meal I've ever been offered in a hotel ever! Thank goodness I found somewhere really good to eat the following evening.
