Thon Hotel Lillestrom

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 December 2012

WE stayed for 2 nights in December for a family party. The hotel staff was unfailingly helpful and polite, even giving us a very late check out for no extra charge because the hotel was not full. Our rooms were very comfortable with an excellent shower and heated underfloor in the bathroom. If anything our room was a bit too hot but we turned down the thermostat and occasionally opened the window to cool it down. Our teenagers had a room opposite the busy Klimt Bar which was a bit noisy but they loved the buzz. My mother had a room above the road and occasionally heard the odd rowdy shout on the saturday night but it wasnt terrible and the windows seal out most of the sounds. Our room was at the back over the car park- definitely less scenic than the other 2 but quiet except for when they tipped the bottles out into a dumpster, only once though! The breakfast was exceptional, (cereals pastries waffles eggs bacon smoked salmon cheeses etc) laid up in the cosy rustic restaurant, with endless choices and no hassle of having to move on - we sat til 12 on sunday morning. The breakfast hours were more than acceptable 7-11 on sat and sun, and the staff very relaxed and polite. All rooms in Norway are expensive so we thought value for money was good in that we had as good an experience as possible for the price. The location was great for us, just a short walk to bars restaurants and the station. Only niggles, no bath and a very strange smell in the lift!!

This hotel had been booked by a colleague as I certainly would never have chosen it with the other and much better Thon hotel in the same city.
It starts with the location which is city center and as such accounts for a lot of noise in your room , windows barely insulate you from the outside world and also inside you will find noise from other guests in their rooms or down the corridor can be quite irritating.
Rooms have been renovated in a cheap and not very skill full manner, bathroom almost floods when you take a shower in what I guess is the budget version of a walk in shower.
Downstairs restaurant is adequate if you do not want to eat out and wifi seems to be free so that is nice in an era when everyone apparently wants to charge you an arm and a leg for the same service.

So to the conclusion then, ok hotel for the money I guess but the noise is just too much . All I expect is some peace and quite in a clean room and they can't deliver even that.

I spent in this hotels a week, my room was nice, essential but comfortable.
For an italian surely the wardrobe was a bit too small but enough for it's purpose.
Well equipped with ironing board and iron, hairdryer, boiler for tea/coffee and a courtesy umbrella in case of rain. Free wireless Internet.
Espressomaschine of free access and use in front of the reception, close to the Egon restaurant.
Breakfast is served there from 6:30 till 10:30.
The reception is efficient, very rapid check in, very nice and supportive, always ready to provide you help and information if needed.
The service personnel seems a smart and young team always friendly and happy to help you out and provide you what you need.
The breakfast will make happy everyone, spacing from continental taste to english breakfast fans :)
The location is great, 500 m from the train station, 100m from the nearby shoppincentre and in the middle of the pedestrian area.
Very nice staying!
Ps no pool nor fitness centerit was an error! I apologize!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms not on the hotel entrance side, due to few car noise

Starting with the positive things: This hotel is located in the city center of Lilleström directly at the main pedestrian shopping street, close to the station. Free wireless is available. The staff is friendly. Breakfast is served in the restaurant for a reasonable price. But the rooms are small, there is no real wardrobe, no space for the suitcase. The bathroom is not very comfortable. The mattress was soft like a cloud, which can be seen positive or negative... My room was heading to a noisy yard, where the trucks drove in and out early in the morning. The price was as always in Norway incredible.

Stayed here for buisness two nights. In general the hotel is ok. friendly staff, with fast checkin. Rooms are on the small side with a comfy bed, and a nice bathroom. Location is in the centre of Lillestrøm just on the pedestrian street, about 500 meters from the trainstation. Free internet. Average breakfast. All in all an average hotel at the price of a 5* hotel ;) WELCOME TO NORWAY !

This hotel is average in every way. This small hotel is in the center of Lillestrøm and in the weekends it's quite noicy because of the disco/bar on the other side of the road.
The best ting abouth this hotel is thats its close to the conference center and the railway station. It's only 15 minutes by train to Oslo.
