I stayed 3 nights at the Thon Hotel Astoria, and I had a good stay overall. I booked a standard single room which was surprisingly large compared to other single rooms I stayed in during my trip. The bathroom, while not large, is clean and updated and doesn't splash water all over the place like some do in budget hotel bathrooms. The bed itself is a little soft, but otherwise, the room is comfortable for one person. One negative for me was the fact that housekeeping forgot to clean my room the first day. I had planned to reuse my towels anyway, so it wasn't a huge issue, but it did bug me a bit. Also, the window doesn't open very far, so the room tends to get stuffy, especially in summer when it's warmer and there's no AC. And I was randomly woken up by some very loud construction/drilling on my first morning, at around 6am (kind of early?!?). Fortunately, it was just the first night.
Breakfast is very good and included in the price; it's a traditional Scandinavian continental breakfast (meats, cheeses, cereal, etc). It has a really great location - steps from Oslo central station, trams, T-bana, buses, Karl Johans gate, the Oslo Cathedral, etc. The staff was very helpful and friendly, too. I would definitely recommend this hotel. You're not in Oslo to hang out in your hotel room, so it's plenty big enough to sleep in and get ready in the morning, especially for one person.
