Thon Hotel Opera

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is close to central train station as well as near by attractions. But don't expect a view from your hotel room .

Location is great - between the train station and the Opera House. Breakfast buffet is superb. Great place to stay in Oslo for a few days

Newly refurbished in great location across from train station. Cheerful hallway. Had a problem with not getting hot water but was corrected by staff. Watch out for closing room door upon leaving since door stays open for a couple of minutes-need to use your key card. Breakfast selection very good.

Right next to train station, comfortable rooms, just renovated. Best part of hotel was the breakfast buffet. The bacon was smoked over a charcoal log, the sunny side up eggs were fried perfectly, great pastries, yogurts, juices, etc.

Very well located near central train station. It's right across the Steeet

Perfect location right next to Oslo main station and a close walk to everything. Breakfast buffet was also excellent.

This hotel is in the perfect location for the first time visitor to Oslo. It is steps away from the high speed train which picks you up at the airport and drops you off in Central Oslo. The rooms were small, but comfortable (we are a family of four, so we needed two rooms which added to the cost, but was worth it between the location, facility and the breakfast) The best part of the hotel was the breakfast. This was included in the room charge and it was quite the spread. By taking advantage of the breakfast buffett, we were able to save a lot of money on lunch and snacks later in the day. That plus it was delicious!

Excellent city location close to airport train station for brief visit to Oslo

Excellent hotel location for short visit to Oslo as two minutes from train station for train from and to the airport

The hotel was very clean, and the location is very close to the train terminal, which was very important to me, traveling Norway by train. Also it is very close to the Opera house. As with most Thon hotels, the pictures are great, but there seems to always be a catch. At Hotel Opera, there had been no prior notification that the restaurant was under renovation, thus meals are served in a conference room. Not a huge issue, but should have been notified before accepting reservations.

Hotel is located in the center of Oslo and easy walking distance to all attractions including the train/bus station. The people at the front desk were very helpful and went out of their way to help. Only recommendation would be to have a Concierge Desk.

This s a beautiful hotel. The lobby is stunning. My room was quite large by European standards. The hotel has a terrific full breakfast. The hotel restaurant, Scala, also serves an excellent dinner. During a 3 week stay in Scandinavia the best service I experienced was at dinner at Scala. The hotel is spotless. The view of Oslo's architecturally stunning new Opera House on the harbor cannot be beaten. Not can the location: the Opera House in front, the train station behind and Karl Johan Gate, the main drag, a 3 minute walk. Buses, including the 'hop on hop off,' stop in front of the hotel.

Thon Opera is extremely convenient for travelers arriving in Oslo both from their Norway in Nutshell tour and from the airport. The hotel is a short 3-minute walk from the central train and airport express terminals. Besides the great location, the service we received was outstanding . . . from prompt check-in to computer support to fax assistance. Though our room was not luxurious, it was well-appointed and met all of needs.

Thon Opera was the best combination of location and value I could find in Oslo. It is right next to the airport train platform, and couldn't be easier to find when you arrive tired and anxious after an overseas flight. Very new and modern, and for the money, by Norway standards, a good value. Rooms were very small by American standards, but functional and very clean.

Dear Prash, thank you for your rating and comment. I’m sorry that you have been disappointed that your room has not had a view. Most of our rooms does not have a view, as a city hotel we have buildings on tree out of four sides. Despite the lack of view, I do hope you did enjoy your stay with us, and that we might be able to welcome you back to Thon Hotel Opera on a later occasion. Kind regards Marius Lilleng, Guest Relations Manager.
