Thon Hotel Arena

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is situated in Lillestrøm, just a few minutes train ride from downtown Oslo. It is situated next to a huge exhibition hall . The hotel itself has many conference rooms and has specialised in conferences but is of course open for everybody. Service is very professional and efficient. I was impressed by the service and friendliness in the reception. Rooms are nice but personally I did not like the colour choices in the corridors. Breakfast very nice. If you do not enjoy the hotel food there are several choices only a few minutes walk from the hotel.

I stayed for two nights attending a business conference. I was pleasantly surprised. The check in was efficient. The room was newly renovated and the bed great. Best of all was the food! Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks were all exceptionally tasty.

Thon Hotel Arena is å nice hotel with many facilities. Breakfast is excelent, lunch is tastfull. The room was not big but enough for one person, it was clean and tidy, The TV was large and have many channels both norwegians, swedish, danish and english. I recomand this hotel to anyone at Lillestrøm.

Nice place, near train station. Friendly staff, helpfull,always awailable and nearby. Good Food, delicious served With a friendly smile, the room was well equipped, we were all agreed this was all in all a Nice stay.

Good hotel with good rooms and excellent breakfast. However, if you want to use the pool and sauna that's another case. No information anywhere that the pool was empty and the sauna cold. Reception told that you need to ask for the sauna to be heated. Strange when it clearly states that opening hours are 7am-11pm and no mention about that. Kind of funny thing when you shower and prepare for sauna and then to find that nothing is working. Ps. Do i need to ask for the pool to be filled also?

This is the secound time I stay in this hotel,and its one of the best hotels I've stayed at. The food was very good,and the rooms was good and clean. The service was good to. There was only one negative thing about the hotel,and it was that nobody could show us how the air conditioner worked in a meeting room we borrowed,and the air was getting very bad eventually

A professional, yet uncharming congress hotel in central Lillestrøm. The location is unspectacular, as are the rooms. But the congress facilities are spacy and pleasant, and the food is average plus - albeit al little repetitive if you stay for more than two nights. (The repetition of the halibutt for lunch was most welcome though.) The service also gets and okay plus, didn´t notice i at all actually - which is quite all right, just like the referee at a football match. The unnoticed referee has usually been doing his or her job adequately.

Hotel has very good connection with market hall and the aiport. Fantastic restaurant and good personel. Breakfast - really delicious and gluten free table here - thank You for that! it's beautiful place, really nice rooms and views.

A really nice hotel. They had a great swimming pool and steaming room. A good restaurant. Great customer service. My little daughter enjoyed the stay at the hotel. I'm probably going to stay there another time.

Overall clean hotel with very pleasent staff everywear,good comfy beds and a nice breakfest,good drinks in the bar but a little bit exspensive but thats typical in norway,nice view from 6th floor facing lillestrøm
