Thon Hotel Gyldenlove
Ranked #60 of 103 Hotels in Oslo
Reviewed 20 April 2013

Stylish no-nonsense hotel, good breakfast, good bed, good coffeemachine in the lobby.
Very expensive for what you get though, but what isn't expensive in Oslo...
Imo: Will do the job for business, insufficient for a leisure stay (room and bathroom way too small)

Note sure why this hotel is ranked in the lower half of the list of hotels in Oslo. I've stayed here twice in the last two years. Prices are reasonable (for Oslo!), The rooms are spotless, beds are comfortable, bathrooms very functional, soundproofing is excellent, breakfast is very good quality, there is a tram-stop right outside, the shopping is great, there is a convenience store just downstairs, and the reception staff are friendly and incredibly helpful (even at 4.00am)... Need I say more? I'll stay here again next time I'm in Oslo.

I had a small single bed room with shower. Air-condition was noisy and TV from adjacent room was heard too. A stink like when something is in fire was smelled during the night, one time I was thinking if I have to prepare for evacuation.
Room was clean, bed too soft for me. There was a window between shower and room, very funny. After taking a shower water was everywhere in the bathroom but the ventilation worked good and after some minutes it was possible to go to toilet without making the socks wet.
Free WiFi available but you should ask on the reception desk for user name and password.
Price was high for the small room but everything in Norway is of the higher price.
Location of the hotel is very good and there is number of shops around. Parking places for electric cars with charger socket are just opposite the hotel.
Breakfast was from 6:30 on the second floor.
There was usual offer of warm and cold meals, but cheeses and salamis were very cold and sausages were spicy. My feeling was that some meals were too much salty (butter including).
They accept electronic credit cards.

Reception was kind and helpful although upon checkout pretty crowded (waited approximately 10 minutes in line). I stayed in a standard single room which was a bit smaller than I expected but provided me with everything that I needed and even a bit more. I found the ironing device/plank very useful and they have an umbrella to use if you need it! Room was modernly decorated, very light but at night pitch dark, exactly how I like it. The bed was (a bit too) soft and the pillow comfortably big and fluffy. The shower had a mirror which is useful for (wet) shaving. Breakfast is great. Good selection of bread, cereal, fresh fruits, homemade smoothies, juices, English breakfast and the coffee is great as well. WiFi (by telenor) was reliable but not very fast. Normal internet is fine, but don't expect to be able to stream anything.

I will stay at Thon Hotel Gyldenlove in the coming few weeks and I am looking forward to it!

Room Tip: I found the standard single room to be quite small. I can't imagine how small the Small Single R...

It is a pleasure to hear that you felt the room served all your needs, the breakfast offered a great variety and that the service of the team was "kind and helpful".

Rooms are simple and small but very comfortable. Front desk staff are very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast is good but can be a little crowded. Good shops and restaurants nearby. Only word of caution is that the tram goes past the front of the hotel so some of the rooms located at the front can be a little noisy, but even this is no great problem.

Room Tip: Rooms as the back will be quieter
