Booked this hotel as a less-expensive backup to my primary downtown Oslo hotel. Stay was seven days. Absolutely no regrets or disappointments.

Amazing service. Very close to everything in center of the city and easily walkable to many sites. Decent sized rooms with comfortable beds and spa like showers. Breakfasts were free & amazing!!!

Excellent location. Very helpful staff. Truly amazing breakfast. But dinner offered was pretty awful. Superior rooms cost more of course but are roomy enough. Standard rooms a bit small for US standards.

Room are clean but small. Bathroom sink is small. Breakfast is really good, they also have a 7-9pm light dinner

Great breakfast and great value by Norwegian standards

We LOVED this hotel! No need to look further if you are considering this hotel. The location was fantastic and close to everything including the train station. The breakfast was one of the BEST we have had!! There was a wonderful quiet space, fresh-squeezed orange juice, bread variety that was beyond what we anticipated, cheese assortments, fruit, yogurt, and other cold items. Then... the hot dishes. The spread was unbelievable! Meats, veggies, eggs (in many ways) and other dishes were amazing! Then...they provided a dinner (chef selected) at NO cost. What hotel does that? There is also a quiet area for reading, talking, etc. on the 8th floor. Like I said, look no further!

The hotel is in a good location, downtown but quiet, the service is outstanding, the complementary breakfast and dinner are amazing.

Convenient location.. I did ask for a take away breakfast for My early departure but somehow that got overlooked

The Thon Hotel Rosenkrantz was fabulous. The showers were strong and hot. The bed was very comfortable. The rooms were small but efficient with good ventilation (windows which open). The breakfast is FABULOUS--everything you could want from cereals to pastries to egg dishes to Norwegian fish and meatballs to fruit and vegetables, juices of all kinds! The evening reception also provided enough food to suffice as a dinner. The lobby is comfortable and has a specialty coffee maker and a mineral water dispenser. The hotel has an uncrowded feel and easy access to elevators. The hotel is within two blocks of Karl Johans Gate (shopping, Parliament, Royal Palace, City Hall, Akershus Castle, etc.) Just wonderful! The staff was friendly and helpful. Downtown Oslo is immaculate--not a piece of the litter on the streets.

Very nice hotel- great location- terrific buffet breakfast- would definitely stay again on next visit to Oslo.

Nicely remodeled hotel, centrally located in Oslo.

Very pleasant staff. The room was fine, and included everything we could need. Bed was too soft to our taste.the breakfast was amazing, with somethjng for every taste.

This hotel was fabulous. Simple but clean and friendly. It was well staffed. You never had to try to hunt down an employee. And, they all seemed to be delighted to be working there and even more delighted that we had chosed to stay there. The breakfasts were outrageously good. I've stayed in many Scandinavian hotels that include breakfast and this one was outstanding. Fresh, wholesome, varied. Their "light evening meal" was an unexpected bonus and really helped to keep our expenses down in a very expensive city.

Rooms are very small. Location is great. One staff member not great; however, the rest of the staff were absolutely wonderful.

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.

Greetings and thanks for writing this review. It is a delight to read that you enjoyed our award-winning breakfast. Your comments regarding the complimentary, light evening meal will of course be forwarded to our F&B department. As you mention, most standard rooms in Norway will be quite small compared to the equivalent in the US. We recommend anyone wanting more space to upgrade to either a Superior or Business room. Hoping to see you back in the near future, and wishing you a very fine day.
