Thon Hotel Munch

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good basic hotel. Best part of the hotel is the breakfast. Good thing it's located in a quiet area because there is no A/C so you need to open your window.

Great area of the City. Room was comfortable and like on new.

Great experience. Loved being in this area. Near the National Gallery and Royal Palace.

This hotel is very clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful. Location is convenient. The breakfast is out of this world.

I stayed here for three nights and had no issues. The room, while very small was clean and comfortable. The wifi was very strong and the room had the two things I value most with any hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable and the shower had high pressure. I would definitely stay here again, a great value for the money.

The best thing about this hotel was that my 14-year-old was able to lead us there - walking - from the Oslo S central train station. We were able to walk to all the must-see tourist sites. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. They told us a shortcut to get on the Tram, by walking diagonally through an office park instead of going around the block. Free coffee/cocoa/cappuccino machine in the lobby. The breakfast was filling - cereals, pastries, bacon, sausage, eggs, potatoes, fruit, bread, and cheeses! Our family of four shared 1 small room. Even though the bathroom was tiny, we were very comfortable.

Thon Hotel Munch is a great location: five to seven minutes walk to the Royal Palace and Art Museum. 15 minutes walk to the Train station. Breakfast was excellent, especially freshly baked bread. Coffee/tea/hot chocolate machine in a lobby was perfect. Room was very clean, bed are very comfortable.

Reached hotel at midnight because of delays in flights. Approaching the hotel, I was requested by a person on a bycycle to use my phone to call his brother. After telling him that my phone does not work in Norway, I walked off. I was not sure whether this was a genuine request. At the reception, I was well received by the person at the desk. Breakfast was good. The staff let me stay at the hotel until 1:30 PM because of late arrival. This was helpful to me to look around Oslo.

Overall positive experience. Despite not being on the main drag, relatively easy to find via public transport. Rooms are basic but clean. Extensive breakfast buffet with friendly staff.

The staff is wonderful. They have excellent information. The hotel is convenient to public transportation and good walking distance from many sightseeing venues. The bed was a typical Norwegian two inches thick, but the breakfast (included in the reasonable price) was excellent. The staff would even pack a sack lunch (for a very reasonable price) for the day's sightseeing. There were many families at the hotel, which I consider a joy.

nice hotel of the Thon chain, close to all the great things in the center of Oslo. Exact location looks a bit sketchy, but is actually fine to walk through. Parking is next to building (pay through automated process), but the staff at the hotel didn't know this. Only minor complaint is that there were not enough staff at front desk--one person to answer the phone and deal with everything else meant waiting quite some time for help. Room, however, was modern, clean, and well appointed, esp for the price. Breakfast offered a plentiful buffet. Would certainly go again.

Clean, comfortable, decent breakfast, close to metro!

Hotel is a good value, in a decent location. Room was a fair size, for being in a city. Very clean, and modern bathroom. TV had several English stations. Front desk staff was helpful and spoke English well. Free breakfast was very good, with a large selection of hot and cold food. The hotel was a little tricky to find, when walking from the train station, so bring a good map. It's only a few blocks from city attractions that are off the water, and not too long of a walk from the harbor. I enjoyed my stay, and would return.

I was very happy with this hotel. Considering the high prices in Norway this was very good value for the money. The room was comfortable, breakfast was included and it was fantastic, staff very friendly. The location was great. Try to get a room in the upper floors as it can get noisy at night with music and loud chatter from the surrounding restaurants especially Friday and Saturday night. I highly recommend this hotel.

Enjoyed our stay here. Prices are high all over Norway but this is a pretty good value.

This was a very simple hotel. The room was clean and fairly spacious, as was the bathroom. It was fairly well located (5 minutes to the national art gallery, 10-15 minutes to the Rathaus), but was cut of a bit from the main part of the city by the first ring, a busy driving street. The breakfast was tasty and ample.
