Thon Hotel Astoria
Ranked #59 of 102 Hotels in Oslo
Reviewed 3 September 2014

This hotel is a little gem hidden in plain sight in downtown Oslo. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the receptionist suggested changing my room to best suit my wishes, upon check in. Needless to say the location is excellent - walking distance from train station, shopping and sightseeing objects. I definitely recommend to take a stroll to the Opera house, very impressie both in daylight and in the dark, with a magnificent view of Oslo. The room was cosy, clean and the bed super comfortable. I had a good nights sleep before the business meetings the following day :) Thank you Thon Astoria!

The Thon Hotel Astoria was just wonderful. The room was clean, bright and provided for our needs quite well. We stayed 2 nights and were able to walk to so many places as well as an easy walk to the Tourist Information Centre. We were able to buy tickets for the tour bus, get maps and take the ferry tour. Karl Johansgate is a half block away and a site not to be missed. The Central Train Station is 2 streets away and convenient. There is a shopping mall beside the train station and all kinds of pubs, bars and restaurants right near the hotel. The breakfast served is awesome. This is not your run of the mill continental breakfast. The hotel is not fancy nor is the room but the bed is comfortable, the washroom was very clean and the shower was great. We would stay here again. Thank you to the front desk staff for answering questions, giving directions and being polite. We came from Canada and speak no Norwegian so it was great to be understood.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the inner courtyard and not room 228 which faced a shed.

This hotel was great! Rather small rooms but good value. We were to glad to have the knowledgable desk staff to inform us how to get around the city and much more. Room was very clean, modern---great shower. Excellent breakfast buffet. Recommend people see the Teknik Museum. Good pizza half a block down.

Room Tip: Rooms facing street will be noisy...we closed the windows. Fan provided.

I spent two nights here when visiting Oslo, and was greatly impressed. My room was a bit small, but who cares? The hotel is a two minute walk from Oslo Central Station and had one of the best breakfasts I have ever seen in a hotel. One my checkout day, I had an early bus to catch and the front desk person let me go into the breakfast area a half hour before officially opening, so I could have something to eat. I'd happily stay here again.

Also, worth noting that this was an excellent value. My two nights here in Oslo cost less than a single night at a P-Hotel in Bergen. Greatly impressed.

The staff were really friendly and helpful, the hotel was in an excellent position. Rooms were clean and comfortable - the only downside being lack of air-con on hot July evenings. The best part though, were the fantastic breakfasts, masses of choice and excellent quality.

In a very expensive Oslo, this hotel offers a good value accommodations in the center of the city. Nearby is the central train station, Akershus Fortress and shopping district Aker Brygge. Our room included simple furnishings, a queen bed and a writing desk. Bathroom was small but adequate. Plentyful breakfast was included. The was no A/C so I had to
open the windows and put up with the noise outside.

This hotel is very basic. You know that when you book it and see the rates. So you know what you are getting. What you may not know is that the staff all REALLY tries to be helpful, the location is in a pretty quiet area (except for the disco music til 3 in the morning -- see below), but just a 5 minute walk from Central Train Station and around the corner from Karl Johann Gate, the breakfasts are way above the expectation for a hotel like this, the WiFi is completely reliable and very fast, and the rooms are immaculate and very quiet. So you can't complain about the spare and small lobby, the sparse (but adequate) furnishings in the room, etc. I am normally very demanding of hotels when I stay for business. I tried to save some money on this booking since Oslo is so expensive. I was not let down. Don't judge this place by standards it can't achieve. In my experience, it was a lot of value for the money. One MAJOR problem: there is a disco nearby that has music outdoors until 3 in the morning some nights. Everyone in the neighborhood is bothered by this. I would inquire if this is still a problem before I book, since the music keeps EVERYONE awake.
