“you get what you pay for”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2012

First of all it's a B&B not a hotel.
At the reception, staff is very nice and helpfull.
Single room is on the minimalist side but all the basic comfort. Same decoration type as Novotel, let's say : ugly.
The hotel is in total refurbishment, since difficult to have a real opinion outside the room.
It's said that there are several TV channels, yes indeed, but apart from BBC World all channels are in Norwegian!
Great location, nice neighbourhood.
For 1 night, I can definitely recommend it

Given the price of this Thon hotel - much lower than many of the others in the chain - I thought there must be something wrong with it but gambled anyway.

And I won. There's nothing wrong with this hotel at all. Location is fine, a little outside the centre but not dodgy in any way. Rooms were a decent size, comfortable, clean and quiet. The shower was more than adequate, and the breakfast was very good indeed, especially given it was included in the price - a good selection. Front desk service was friendly and helpful.

Would definitely stay again at a similar price.

I haven’t really checked the price on this one; it was picked out for me. But I really hope it is very, very cheap. Small rooms, small restaurant, small breakfast, no soundproofing (I listened to a party across the street until approximately 03:38) to speak of. Unusually soft beds, if you like that. The rooms are being renovated, so maybe the standard will go up a bit (I’m not sure if my room was newly renovated or still waiting its turn). If it is really cheap, and you just need a place to rest/sleep for a while, then sure, go for it. Otherwise, maybe you should look somewhere else.

You shouldn't expect much out of budget business hotels anywhere, but in a city like Oslo the least you would expect was hot water in the showers, and that the showers weren't hanging loose on the wall. My single room was small without a trace of personality or warmth, but the bed was good and warm. Breakfast just fine, but no other food services after 11 am. Hotel lies off the main shopping street in a dark and unfriendly part of town. This is my third stay here due to business obligations, but I would go for something else if I had the pick.

A budget hotel that I couldn't be happier with. Very strategically located, right in the heart of the city. I like it best for its easy access to public transportation. The rooms are just the perfect size and everything that a traveller needs - a good bed, a good shower / bathroom and space to put stuff. A very good selection of breakfast as well. I would definitely return if I was on that side of the globe again.

The hotel is under renovation and that is promising for the next few months. The unrefurbished rooms are basic, although of decent size. The breakfast buffet is good for a hotel of the budget type. The location is about 10 min walking from the Nationaltheatret Station, but a bit hard to find, especially the entrance that is at the back of the hotel in a quiet street. This hotel will do the trick if sleeping and taking a shower is all you need and you do not want to pay the even more expensive 'normal' hotel rates of Oslo. For 2 nights I paid NOK 1,990 all in, about EUR 125 per night.

Room Tip: Whil under renovation, ask for a room away from the day-time noise.

Despite Thon marketing this hotel as "Budget" I was still expecting more. The hotel is in dire need of refurbishment. The hallways are smelly and badly lit, with flickering lights. The room was clean, but reeked of toilet cleaner. The room was small, worn and had absolutely no decorations of any kind. The in-room TV had only 6 stations. Also, the toilet was leaking and the room was poorly insulated, so I could hear everything that happened on the same floor, including my amorous neighbours in the next room. The bed was less than comfortable. Breakfast was very basic. All in all, I really think you can find way better options many other places in Oslo at a similar price level, all of which I would prefer to this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel.
