Small worn down rooms. My room had the washbasin next to the bed and not inside the bathroom. More expensive than similar hotels. Good breakfast. The location is normally great but there is a lot of construction work going on at the moment.More

thank you for taking the time to evaluate your stay at Thon Hotel Gyldenløve! It is a pity that we with this stay could not meet your expectations.
The room facilities with sink parted from the bathroom by a frosted-glass-wall are a special feature for our hotel and descried on our website with text and pictures. As far as I can see your reservation was made on our website and thus the information accessible prior to booking and arrival. However, we take your feedback with us.
When it comes to price and value it is unfortunate that you feel our hotel was “more expensive than similar hotels”. You stayed with us on very busy days in Oslo due to concerts and fares arranged at the same days. Those days you will find more pressure on prices in all of Oslo, especially the shorter in advance the reservation is made. The upgrading of the road Bogstadveien started this week and all information about trafficability and parking is available on our website. We are looking forward to this work being done and being able to present a new and upgraded shopping street in autumn 2013!
We hope you can reevaluate your meaning about Thon Hotel Gyldenløve and are looking forward to welcoming you again!
I absolutely loved my stay in this great location in Oslo! The reception personnel was very friendly to help me with everything I was wondering about. The rooms are very comfortable, very clean and the bed was very good even though I as an academic have lots of issues with back and neck. The breakfast room was cosy, the food fresh and tasteful and the personnel at the breakfast room unbelievably helpful, fast and friendly. I hope they would all get a pay rise! The best thing was the location in this hip area, close to all public transportation and Norwegian Academy of Music who had invited me to Oslo. One of the best trips for me in a long time.

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.
Thank you very much for your fantastic review on our hotel! The whole team of Thon Hotel Gyldenløve is happy to see that you like to stay at our hotel and enjoy being guest here! We are looking forward to welcoming you again at your next trip to Oslo!
With kind regards,
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!
Dear Roel, thank you for taking the time to share your experience of being guest at Thon Hotel Gyldenløve with us and others! We are very happy to see that you had a comfortable stay at our hotel! 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".
When it comes to internet connection so is your impression correct that it is aimed to serve basic services for information and communication - if you like to stream you have the possibility to buy a connection with high speed w-lan. Just contact reception next time you stay with us.
The whole team at Thon Hotel Gyldenløve is thankful for your kind review and we are looking forward to welcoming you again!
