Thon Hotel Spectrum

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This centrally located hotel has been totally renovated and are a really good option when visiting Oslo. It used to be kind of worn out and their breakfast was a disaster. Now it changed completely. A modern, comfortable and value for money hotel has come out from the ashes. And the breakfast is one of the best in this category of hotels. So if you, like me, had a bad time here in past, rethink and try again. Definitely worth the effort! I’ll be back, for sure.

We got a big room which was clean and with a coffee/tea - maker. The service was good, and so was the breakfast. The hotel is near the town center and the railway station. A good location for both business and pleasure.

I stayed here for a week while in Oslo for business. The room was nice, quiet, and had a WONDERFUL shower. The double bed was also nice. The wireless was OK, but did tend to slow down later in the evening. Breakfast was varied and not overly busy. I did find the room keys had to be updated - I got to my room on three occasions only to find it did not work. The hotel is near Gronland T-Bane and nearby the train station - it was very easy to get around Oslo. I would happily stay here again.

Unfriendly staff, tiny rooms, they won't even sell me a bottle of mineral water (minibar in room is empty) explaining water is just for members and I can just go to the seven eleven to buy some. The area is also just plain awful.

Me and my wife attended a course in Oslo, and the course provider had booked us on Thon Hoten Spectrum. The hotel is located at Lilletorget, and Brugata. This is a very international area with a lot of different foreign grocery stores and restaurants with exotic smell. The hotel seems to be renovated, and the reception and restaurant is modern, the same was our room. Good service and good food.

This hotel is in a great location near the train station. The room was very small but I used it as a base to sightsee, I only slept there. they have a great TV that is like a computer. The breakfast was very good. Something for everyone. I enjoyed that it had a gym which I dont always find in European hotels. It was in walking distance to the Harbor and local attractions. It is near the train,bus,metro station so getting around was not an issue

The room was fine and the breakfast was excellent with much food both warm and cold. The staff was fine and they where smiling. I enjoyed the stay and it is close to the railway station and the airport train.

My first stay at a Thon hotel and I was presently surprised. The rooms were nicely decorated, and had the additional touch of a coffee/tea maker. The hotel is a nice walk from the city center and you can even take a nice walk to the Munch museum. The breakfast was really luxurious! Fresh pressed juice, croissants, omelets, anything you could think of! I would definitely recommend this hotel to travelers on the job.

I stayed at the hotel four nights. In three words, A Great Hospitality. Everything was so perfect during my stay: The welcoming reception; the room was cozy, well equipped, and very clean; the staff was very attentive and helpful in advice on the metro, dinning, and shopping; their advice on which train to take to the airport saved me in fact 90 NOK; when felt cold in the room the staff provided me without hesitation with a portable heater; the house-keeper staff was also extremely nice hanged extra towels on my door knob when asked not to enter the room; the Wifi worked without any trouble; and the breakfast was rich with varied -- cooked & continental food, hot and fresh drinks, and plenty of fruits. In terms of location, the hotel conveniently located: only about 4 minutes walk from the Central Station, the Metro public transport system and buses, and walking distance from the National Gallery, Opera House, and Karl Johans gate, to name a few places of interest. I greatly enjoyed every minutes there! Highly recommended!

I really enjoyed my stay from the moment I arrived till I left. All staff were very friendly and the room and downstairs lobby were very comfortable and clean. It was a relaxing environment during a hectic conference and I got work done easily. Location was really convenient to Central Station and the excellent public transport system meant that all of Oslo was easy to get to. Only suggestion is to have ordinary breakfast tea bags as well as the flavoured teas!
