“Explore Oslo from this hotel”
Reviewed 25 September 2011

This hotel provides a perfect location for exploring Oslo. It is only a short walk to the royal castle, the Karl Johan street, the Parliament and many good restaurants. Add a few minutes, and you are at the harbour, the central railway station etc.
The standard of the hotel is acceptable, no luxury, however. The rooms have sufficient space for a couple. The AC is not up to date, but the fresh Oslo air can be enjoyed if you open the window. There is not much traffic noise, but some rooms are facing construction areas where the work starts just after 7 in the morning.
For those who use a car, there is a big parking house within 100 meters where you obtain a discount if you are a guest of the hotel (the price is NOK 180,- per day).
The breakfast is OK, but the breakfast restaurant does not look comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the construction areas.

This was the cheapest hotel we could find in Oslo which did a family room. Never really heard of the Thon chain of hotels before, but it seems they are fairly well known in Norway, I'd maybe liken them to the better class of Novotel in terms of style and atmosphere.

Staff were efficient and did occasionally smile, but really no complaints with the check in/out process. All necessary information was given to us on arrival, including free wifi username/password which is very useful. iPhone worked on their free wifi with no difficulties.

The room was spacious, fairly standard Scandinavian decor, although the bathroom was a little small. Everything worked though, and was clean and perfectly adequate. The girls' bed was a pull down from the wall type, very comfortable, and the main adults beds were very comfortable too, we slept well.

Breakfast was very good. Better than average buffet offering fresh fruits, cereals, eggs, sausages, beans toast etc. as well as typical Norwegian pickles (herring, beetroot etc.) if you're feeling brave that time of morning! Have to say I couldn't quite face pickled sweet herring first thing, but my wife gave them a go to mixed reviews!

The hotel has a baggage store room and we were able to leave our bags all day after check out on the Sunday so we could explore Oslo unburdened. The location of the hotel is perfect for that too, close to many attractions and restaurants, not far from the train station either.

For a so called budget hotel, breakfast, location, room and facilities really did surpass expectations and we will definitely stay again next time we are in Oslo.

Room Tip: Family rooms on the 6th floor are spacious and very quiet.

We paid 995 NOK per night in advance for four nites in Sept. Great location, helpful if not overly chatty front desk, decent room with old fashioned TV, clean but very small bathroom (really could use some extra shelves and hooks) and excellent shower. Breakfast was quite good altho they didn't provide pastry type stuff after the first day. Lots of meat, cheese, eggs, fruit and cereal. Quite satisfied.

The Thon hotel Munch is described on their website as a" budget " hotel.At the price I paid about 55 euro including a good breakfast they are entitled to call themselves a good value hotel.The hotel was basic but clean and staff very friendly.It is situated very close to where the bomb exploded.Staff coped very well.

This is a massive hotel, located very close to many attractions. The breakfast buffet is huge and rooms small and tidy. Consistent wifi.

Thin hotel munch was an almost perfect place to stay. Close walk to restaurants and transportation. Only wish it had a place on site to sit outside to people walk.

We stayed in a standard double bed room. The room was very clear and the roomkeeping did a great job. Very nice: free internet access, although very slow connection. But anyway...
The breakfast was good, but here comes the big minus: there must have been a problem with the dishwasher, because almost every knife, fork or spoon was not completely clean. Instead you found the rests of the previous user on it. So this is clearly not acceptable.
The personal (all of them) where very friendly. Very good is the location at the heart of Oslo City. So all in all the price-performance is well and I would recommend this hotel in spite of the mentioned minus.
