Our first time visiting Oslo. Really, our family's only issue was finding the hotel the first day. Everything shows the address as Stortingsgata 8, but we couldn't find the hotel anywhere on that street. Finally spotted it around the corner on Rosenkrantz gate! Maybe we just don't understand their system of addresses? The hotel was about a 10 minute walk...

Thon Cecil Hotel is the perfect centrally located Oslo hotel. It's located less than a block off of the main square in Oslo. You're within a block of Parliament, less than five blocks to the National Theatre, Culture Museum, City Hall, waterfront and more.

Great location in Oslo...close to everything "touristy"you will want to do. Try to get a room overlooking the breakfast atrium. Street side can get noisy on weekends. If you're driving call ahead to reserve a parking spot. Otherwise somewhat small rooms but manageable and clean. Very nice staff. The breakfasts are well above average. Overall reasonable value in a very...

I often travel to Oslo and have found this "city-near" hotel! It has become my first choice among hotels in Oslo. It's very near the famous street -Karl Johan- right in the middle of Oslo City, and only 5-minutes walk from the big Railway Station. Always so nice! /Jorgen L

Had a brief and nice visit. Friendly staff and the hotel is in the middle of the capitol. On the other hand we experienced that the rooms were poorly sound isolated and the air was very dry. I'd recommend it for short stays.
