Positive: good breakfast, polite and helpful breakfast personell. Negative: rooms need renovation. Old stains on fridge and furniture. Not the room you would expect for this price (even though we had a discount). Reception staff borderline impolite and arrogant. Asked for an extra pillow and new batteries in remote control - we had to bring the remote to the desk...

Staff was really polite, quick check in and out. Great breakfast, lot of space in the breakfast restaurant. The location is great, close to the royal castle and city center. Great to jog around the royal castle park, 3 laps equals 5000m. Fitness room is sub standard, non functioning equipment still there (some of it was there and out of...

I had the fortune of getting a room on the 8:th floor with a large balcony. Oslo skyline was very nice to watch. The room had a clean bathroom unfortunately the door had a large hole in it. Breakfast was good and the nespresso machine in the lobby gave me good coffee. The hotel is situated within walking distance of...

And this hotel also has a guest laundry with a washing machine. perfect for someone like me.

I stayed at Thon Hotel Slottsparken for 14 nights in August/September 2016. In addition to staying there for training, I organized a private event there, so I also rented their Penthouse and a suite on the 9th floor for a weekend. I lived in two different rooms before/after the suite, so in total I tested four different rooms. Almost all...

This hotel has average rooms. The first room we had was poor with a bed that dipped heavily in the middle, but they quickly changed our room to a better one when we asked.

My family has stayed there twice on visits to Oslo. We love it. It's only a five minute walk from the Royal Palace! Yes, it's not in downtown Oslo, but that's only a 15 minute walk away. And that means it's quieter. The facility is up to date with wi-fi, flat-screen TVs, and lots of electrical sockets. But best of...

Dear Raymond K, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to see that you were unhappy with your stay here with us. Some of our rooms are yet to be renovated, but this doesn't excuse that the bulbs and remotes are not working. We are also a non-smoking hotel, so cigarettes should not be found anywhere on our premises....
