Thon Hotel Rosenkrantz

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was only there for two nights and didn't use any hotel facilities other than the room. The room was very comfortable and the staff let me check in early which was nice. Hotel is located two blocks from the main tourist area and about 600 meters from the airport train stop. Easy access to the ferries that go to many of the museums.

I relied on other reviews to chose this hotel and was very happy that I did. It is not a posh "old world" hotel, but for those of us who prefer modern, small size (yes, it is part of a chain but does not at all feel that way), "what can I do to make your stay more enjoyable" establishments, you need look no further. I prepaid on Orbitz and there was no issue with the reservation and I was told I had already paid (i.e., I didn't have to ask) when I arrived. If I were returning to Oslo now, I absolutely would stay there again.

The hotel is quite nice and the restaurant was excellent. Great location near City Center and other core areas of Oslo. The staff were polite and the facilities well maintained. The room I stated is was rather small but didn't really spend much time there beyond sleeping.

I accidentally booked an accessibility room for disabled.

Tram stop right outside hotel. Within walking distance of the palace, wharf, fort and other historic areas and high end shopping as well.

Great value - clean, comfortable room with all major amenities, full breakfast buffet. Central location with easy access to all major sites with tram at front. Can be a little noisy at night with rooms facing the bars across the street. Noticed a lot of business travelers during the week. Late brunch and checkout on Sundays up to 4pm, which is super convenient if wanting to see more of the city before catching your next flight, ferry or train.

I like everything about this hotel. I have stayed at the Rosenkrantz twice recently and have found the staff friendly, the room comfortable and the location perfect for sightseeing. The buffet breakfast is delicious AND the hotel offers a free evening meal for guests! This is a huge financial saving in an expensive city like Oslo.

Everything about Thon Rosenkrantz is perfect. Not only included the excellent breakfast but free dinner too!

What's not to like about this gem. Superb breakfast that tops the luxury cruise we just left.

The hotel is easily located just blocks off the main strip in Oslo. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff was helpful, and the breakfast buffet blew me away! I highly recommend staying here!

We stayed for 2 days while in Bergen. We were travelling 2 weeks to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We requested and received a great room with a harbor view. With the windows closed, there was no street traffic, and we could watch the coming and going of ships and people around the harbor. The check-in was fast, friendly and efficient. Our room was ready when we arrived. The hotel is located on the old wharf and is near museums and sites, so we walked everywhere. There is a good variety of restaurants nearby, although we took advantage of the light evening meal included in the room price at the hotel. Cold cuts, soup, salad, bread, cheese -- great choices. The breakfast offering also was excellent with hot and cold breakfast options, fresh fruit, cheeses, meats, eggs, sausages, fresh baked bread. The room was comfortable, nicely appointed, clean, and the bed was very comfortable. We slept well! The staff was helpful with taxis, directions, weather info. This hotel caters to tours and there were a couple of tours that arrived during our stay these did not disrupt our pleasure in staying at the hotel as the groups were well-managed by the hotel staff. All-in-all, a great place to stay.

Very funky and modern design hotel with a great breakfast, make sure to get a rate with that included. Very cool white and black bathroom-white walls and black floor. Location is one - two blocks from the main pedestrian area with shopping, restaurants, park, and palace at the far end. Super area if short on time in Oslo. Staff is very nice and helped us change one of our rooms to accommodate our 2 teenagers. There was a leak on our hallway and every time we visited our room, the staff had been by to check the issue and make changes. By the next morning, all was back to normal.

This hotel was perfect for our first trip to Oslo. The location was great and the hotel was a great choice. The breakfast was fantastic and we appreciated the light dinner as well. Staff was professional and helpful. There was some loud music late on Saturday night from a near by bar that we could hear. In general we were very happy with this hotel.

We loved the Thin for its location, friendliness, and value. Everything was perfect and the staff made sure of that. From my prey rip inquiries until we left, they were truly the definition of hospitable. If we are lucky enough to return to Oslo, we will go right back to the Thon!

The breakfast was amazing! From the little quiches to the crispy bacon to the sautéed mushrooms, the breakfast was wonderful. The location of the hotel was within easy walking distance of many restaurants. We chose the Bristol Grill which was right down the street! Great hotel!
