Good location and good breakfast buffet. Staff is very friendly and helpful. That being said the hotel is very dated, rooms are clean but pretty and very poorly decorated. Beds are ok and so is the bathroom. The hotel is not bad at all but its not really good either!

Nice hotel at a really nice location. Walking distance to city centre and a lots of restaurants near by. Rooms were ok, bathroom were nicely renovated and fresh but the rest felt as it had been very poorly taken care of and fixed "as cheap as possible" without being gross. Overall impression was ok though and the continental breakfast was... More

This is a relatively inexpensivery hotel for downtown Oslo. It is out of date with cheap furnishings and tiny tvs and bathrooms. Bring earplugs for sleeping because the tram noise is constant. Breakfast was good.

Good central location but clearly in need of some care and attention. Room - showerroom was fine and pretty new but the bedroom was bleak - nowhere to tell the time, no bedside tables, completely plain with not a single picture, No drawers anywhere.

We stayed here at the beginning of October 2016. We arrived early, as our flight came in to Oslo around 7am. By the time we had breakfast and arrived at the hotel it was about 10:30am, and even though check-in wasn’t for quite some time, the hotel permitted us to check in and go to our room.

Thon Hotel Europa is a great value-for-money hotel. I'd say the prices are comparable to budget hotels, but you are getting quality beyond this. The hotel seems a bit dated and this comes across in some of the rooms. They are fine, they work as they should. But the decor lets it down a bit. The breakfast is continental standard.... More

The hotel's location is perfect to reach many of the sights, shops and restaurants in Oslo within a few minutes. Public transportation is nearby (tram stop 1 minute and underground station about 5 minutes footwalk). The disadvantage of this is, that you could hear the tram in our hotel room quite loudly.
