“central location, good price value relation”
Reviewed 28 June 2010

The Hotel is conveniently located next to Oslo Central Station which saves you Taxi cost. For nightlife activities, this hotel is not ideally located.
The double room offers a nice table for work but two single beds instead of a more comfortable double bed. The bathroom was clean and functional. I appeared late for breakfast (Monday at 8.30 am), so it was impossible to find a table. Breakfast itself consists of a buffet with oragne juice, tea, coffee, apple juice, water, various egg preparations, bread, chesse, sausages,... Nothing really to complain about.
My rate was 144 Euros/night which I think was good value for a city like Oslo.

We stayed for 2 nights, and would have loved to stay longer. There was a minor problem on our first night as we arrived after midnight due to a flight delay and our not finding the correct exit from the central station. They were overbooked because of conferences, a rock concert and it being a weekend and all we could get were two adjacent single rooms for the first night. For the second night they put us into a business suite (much better than the standard room we had paid for, and kindly added a dinner voucher to compensate us for our troubles. At all times their staff were courteous and attentive without being intrusive. We will head there when next in Oslo!

We needed a hotel close to the train station, and at a reasonable cost since Norway is so expensive. (Anything less would have been away from the center of town, and we wanted to be very central.) At NOK 1,295 (near $200) and 30 seconds away you couldn't ask for a better pick.

The location was good, and since we bought an Oslo Pass had free use of all transportation. There was one lapse of service where we had to ask twice to have an light bulb changed.

A very good breakfast and free Wi-Fi was included and the gym is basic but adequate.

Have stayed here on business a couple of times. Location good for transportation (next to Central Station) and the new opera house, even if area is somewhat unsavoury at night. Standard Norwegian breakfast, good service, but do avoid their economy rooms. Most new(ish) Norwegian hotels have only double rooms, i.e. a single is a double for single use, but not here. Their singles are not cheap, but are only half the size of standard rooms elsewhere in new Norwegian hotels

Like most of this chain, this hotel is very well thought out with high quality fittings, well soundproofed rooms and pleasant communal areas. Additional facilities (common on the continent but less so in the UK) such as ice machines on each floor (welcome if you've brought your duty free with you!) and a seating area by the lifts enable groups of people to relax away from the entrance foyer.
The location is as central as it gets, bang next to the main train station - this means that it is noisy around there and fresh air freaks may notice the train and traffic noise if they open the windows.
The bar is expensive, even by Oslo standards, but that's the norm in reasonably smart hotels.
Great buffet breakfast, covering a wide variety of food types.

Fantastic location right next to the station. Our room was comfortable and lovely heated floor in the bathroom. The sauna was a nice treat in the morning. Stock up at the buffet breakfast - there's a lot of choice and you can save on lunch by having a big breakfast. Staff very friendly and helpful (they lent us an adaptor as we'd forgotten ours, and helped us with directions every day in perfect English), and I would definitely stay here again if I were ever back in Oslo.

Reviewed 6 February 2010

In an expensive city, the Thon opera offers decent value for money. The room was clean and reasonably spacious...and failry comfortable. The lack of double beds was a bit annoying (two singles pushed together...the hotel does not have double beds in any of its rooms) but that is fairly standard in Norway, The only downside was the usual Norwegian practice of putting foreigners in rooms with no views....in my frequent travels to Oslo I ALWAYS am given a viewless room and I have been told by Norwegian friends it is because I am English. The location was great however, very close to the Opera and right next door to the station. A walk to Akker brygge is about 15-20 mins and it is a pleasant one, past the shops of Karls Johans Gate.

I will be back next year..
