“OK but a bit grim”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

Hotel is very out of date and desperately needs refurbishing. On the one occasion I got upgraded the room was OK but the standard rooms are just not good enough.

Each room has a kitchenette with varying appliances depending which room you get and you get tea/coffee facilities included. The rooms that I have stayed it have been very out of date with uncomfortable beds, rickety furniture and small CRT TV's that desperately need throwing in a skip. The bathrooms are ok but again have shower units that are many years old and in need of replacement. The room itself was clean and the staff were very friendly and polite. The breakfast was pretty good with a varied selection

Location is very good and is not far from the Royal Palace and about a 5 minute walk to the National Theatre station (downhill). There are definitely better Thon hotels in Oslo!

Room Tip: Get an upgrade or get into the Thon Cecil which is more modern and right in the centre

The hotel room is very cosy, and comes very well furnished. I highly recommend staying here for a good night's sleep! We wanted to check in early, so the reception staff asked housekeeping to rush the cleaning on our room, which they did. Great service!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

I stayed there for one night in November, during one of my busines trips to Oslo. I stayed in a superior room booked via hotels.com. I paid 1.575,- NOK incl breakfast.

I got a big andd clean room, with it's own sleeping alcove. The bathroom was on the small side, but not tiny. I slept well, and the breakfast was good. The check-in was cumbersome, and in general I found the hotel soulless and just another business hotel. It's within walking distance to the main restaurants, but a but further away than many other hotels.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

our room had recently been upgraded with new TV and beds. Once the trick of closing the shower door tight shut was mastered getting clean was fun too.
One disappointing feature that seems to becoming common in Sweden/Norway is the later timing of the included breakfast due to Christmas making it impossible to eat before catching an early train out of Oslo. Lucky there are plenty of early risers running food outlets in the railway station. Good tip for train travellers is to take bottled water and something you like to eat unless you like bad coffee, hot dogs and white flour in cakes and bread products...plenty of choices before you board the train in Oslo!

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2011

I booked a non-smoking room, but got an old smokers room, which is so arrogant I can't believe it. After complaining I got moved (after spending one night in the filthy smoke stench) to a room that was cleaner, but still old and smelly and had smoke coming in through the ventilation.

The wash room is a mess, and the iron was so dirty it put black stains on my white shirt. :(

Avoid this hotel at all cost. Book a clean hotel instead.
