Planning our holiday in Norway we decided to stay in Thon hotels in Oslo,Bergen and Stavanger. Why? Well they had good reviews and a really good loyalty scheme called Discovery. So first stop was the Vika Atrium in Oslo. This is obviously a business hotel but it’s location near to Aker Brygge makes it a great place to stay, even if you do not have any views! It is also a short walk into the city and the various ferry stops. The rooms were quite small but very functional and besides you only sleep in them (and the beds are so comfortable). The breakfast was brilliant as were the very friendly staff who, because of the time of year, had the time to speak with you. Travelling to here from the airport is easy. Take the VY train to the National Theatre station and then a short walk gets you to the hotel.
I would recommend due to location mainly, breakfast, and also due to good quality of sleep. Even though it is quite close to everything it is also quiet. I would say they need to work on receptionists. Their English is not so good, and they would not know that a receipt is common to be issued whenever you pay in cash (as their policy is to pay at check-in), so I had to give them a little class on basic financial documents. Therefore: Best - breakfast (a lot of choices, abundant, great attention, great room); location; bed and room; quality of rest; close to train station. Worst - receptionists; lift (terrible, only one worked and it was a problem at peak hours); TV never really worked well, few channels in other languages (still, that was not the purpose of my visit to Oslo lol); shower took a long time to get warm water one Saturday night, I guess due to many people using it. Overall, I would recommend. Take into account the hotel at the entrance does not look like a hotel at all, so check your GPS constantly.
My friend and i stayed twice for 3 nights in total within a week. Everything was excellent. Reception staff friendly and extremely helpful, breakfast was amazing with an enormous variety. Wonderful freshly baked bread each morning and the staff truly superb. Great location close to Aker Brygge and the konserthaus. Room was great. Already planning our return.
If it is business or pleasure, this hotel puts you right in the spot for both. Just a few steps from public transport that takes you anywhere around Oslo and a few steps from Aker Brygge with lots of resturants and shops. Thon Vika is right in the middle. Great staff, great breakfast and awesome rooms. Can't wait for my next visit, I've stopped searching for other places to stay when I'm in Oslo. A+++
I am a loyal Thon hotels member, and I've stayed at more than six Thon hotels. The Vika Atrium hotel was the worst Thon hotels I've ever stayed. At first, the reception staff forgot to render a bottle of mineral water for Thon members. And then, so many facilities in the room were out of order: TV, desk lamp, bedside lamp. Very unpleasant experience.
We staying here for 5 nights in a Superior room and the location is pretty good, being located a couple of minutes walk front he trendy Akker Brygge area. The breakfast buffet is both extensive and freshly cooked, and the staff are very polite and attentive. The bedroom is a good size and the bed comfortable. Our only misgivings relate to the bathroom size. The shower is fine for my 5’2” wife, but less accommodating for someone nearer 6’ tall. Most irritating if the toilet roll holder, screwed to the wall in an optimum position to bash one’s funny bone at every opportunity - ha ha ! But all in all, a good base for a short break in Oslo. P.S. Despite complaining twice, the tv remote control hasn’t realised it is for a SmartTV, and so we are limited to watching the standard tv channels rather than connecting to the world wide interweb.
The hotel is in an office building but so what when you have such a great breakfast with fresh orange juice and fantastic fresh food combined with nice and helpful service and the place is clean and tidy. Good stay. Location is at Aker Brygge so it is very central.
I arrived by train & walked down to the hotel. Great location to Aker Brygge wharf. I caught a ferry to Bydgoy at the Wharf & there were lots of restaurants nearby. Easy check-in & friendly staff. Would recommend here.
I was NOT expecting the window to be in an indoor office building atrium with offices just an arm's length away and bright lights on all night....The room itself was clean, had no shampoo, conditioner or soap...plus the hall had bizarre super modern, bright colors throughout...but it was for sure serviceable and more than adequate. It was a GREAT location for boarding our cruise ship and walking around downtown AND walking from the Train Station. The huge and amazing breakfast is downstairs and is worth the inside window...staff was delightful and the buffet tables seemed to stretch forever with hot and cold dishes or everything one might imagine and more. It was so great I'd stay again just for that.
Room was comfortable; Nice Bathroom, but it would be nice to have the minimum of a bathroom kit with a shower cap, for example. Breakfast was great, the waiters were super nice and helpful. Location is very good. walking distance to the train station; Akker Brygge; and city center.
