Thon Hotel Munch
Ranked #24 of 102 Hotels in Oslo
Reviewed 9 February 2010

Stayed with a friend in a twin room for a weekend. Took advantage of a 2-for-1 weekend deal which made it exceptionally cheap, even compared to hostels, and especially given that breakfast was included. Everything looks a bit old and could not be described as luxury, but it was clean, the beds were comfortable and the room was spacious enough with large windows, en-suite bathroom and television. Staff at reception were very friendly and helpful.

Hmm, that didn't sound very enthusiastic. Well it is a bit hard to get enthusiastic about something like this. You want a (relatively) cheap place to stay, with a good location and your own bathroom: this is fine. My room was clean. It is also not too noisy.

I liked the Munch painting on the wall of my bedroom.

I have stayed in this hotels many times. There is nothing special about it. It just does the job for a relatively reasonable price in Oslo. It has a reasonable location, reasonable service. Some rooms better than others. And a relatively OK breakfast. For exceitment go elsewhere.

Dear RJS76

We thank you so much for taking your time to leave us your comments after staying with us. We are very pleased to hear that you are a regular customer. Thon Hotel Munch is a Budget accommodation hotel so you are right that we do not have lots of facillities apart from the rooms. The hotel is a good option if you want to live central and quiet at a reasonable price.

We look forward to welcoming you back!

If you are considering the Munch hotel, i imagine you have looked at the prices of hotels in Oslo and been shocked by what you find. In most destinations this would be a 2 star hotel worth 100 - 125$ a night maximum.

Location is ideal, no more than 5 minutes on foot from the main street, and in a quiet but pleasant business neighbourhood.

If you are choosing this hotel for a clean, comfortable, budget hotel experience then you will not be disappointed. It ticks all those boxes very well.

Where it goes one step further is on the buffet breakfast, which is as good as those in hotels at 3 times this price. Eating your fill is well worth it given the high prices in Oslo (even if they do cut the bananas in half to stop people helping themselves to a takeaway).


All in all, i have nothing bad to say. You will struggle to find anything better in Oslo that merits the extra expense you will have to pay.

Spent 1 night here for a sightseeing trip prior to a business meeting. I booked directly with the hotel chain on the web for 675KR including breakfast which was good value for Oslo hotels. I arrived just after 11 a.m. and the room was available which meant I could freshen up a little and leave my things before going to explore the city.
The room was relativey basic but fine. There was a trouser press but no iron. Breakfast was in a large bright room and there was a selection of hot and cold foods to suit all tastes.
There was a leaflet which said that internet access was available but I didn't explore this. In reception there is a coffee machine with free coffee and the check in and check out was a friendly and efficient experience.
The hotel was quiet but it's in a good location and about a 10 minute walk from the National Theatre train station if you're coming from the airport. All in all this was a good experience and I'd stay here again.

very good budget hotel i think. see that there is a bit of different oppinions
about this. Anyways, the rooms where big enough, clean and mostly up to date.
can't comment on the 65 NOK breakfast because i didn't try it.
comfertable bed, did not hear any outside noise.
there is a supermarked outside the hotel and a 7/11 if you
wake up in the night in need of anything just accross the street.
i would stay again.

A relatively cheap hotel in very expensive Oslo. The location is great - we walked to all of the major attractions from the hotel - however bikes and public transport are very close too. The room was basic but clean and fine for us since we were not spending much time in the room anyway.

The staff were very helpful, it was quiet at night and the bed was very comfortable. One negative - The room was rather warm with no A/C but a small desktop fan was provided. I would highly recommend this hotel for the budget site-see-er and would definately recommending getting the buffet-style breakfast - it is great food and very cheap compared to any other food you will get in Oslo.
