A comfortable and clean hotel close to Central station and walking distance to Karl Johans gate. I was able to check in early because there was a room available. The breakfast buffet is amazing with a great selection,veggies, fresh fruit,smoked fish, salmon, meats, bread, etc. Staff is friendly and help you was much as they can.

Our first choice for overnight accommodations was not available on a Saturday, so we booked The Spectrum because of the family room, the price (NOK 1,047), and the distance from the Central Station (about 6 or 7 minutes walking). It is a budget hotel, in many ways similar to Ibis, and the rooms have the basic amenities - TV, desk,...

Dear guest, Thank you for leaving us a good and detailed review. We are happy that you found the breakfast good and that the staff was helpful. Our family rooms vary quite a bit in size, some smaller and some larger than the room you had. All our rooms are being upgraded in an on-going process and will when finished...

The location, while close to the central train station, was a bit dodgy (federal agents were shaking down immigrants for documentation just outside the front door as we were heading out in the morning). The rooms were somewhat dirty with poor lighting and even poorer ventilation. They really need to clean the carpets and put some color in the hallways...

A comfortable hotel nera the Central Station. Cosy, clean and nice, though it does not have any parking for busses - the nearest seems to be miles away, so it is a little bit painfull if you come there with a group. Park for a moment at the Radisson nearby and let the group walk (approx 200 m). It does...

Dear guest, We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us at Thon Hotel Spectrum! The hotel is located near the Central Station and many other key meeting points in Oslo. However, we do not have any parking of our own. Visit Oslo’s webpage will guide you to several parking spaces you busses travelling to the...

This is a hotel that can be a good choice if you just need a place to sleep. Very central location, but not much noise from the outside. Rooms are not very big or very luxurious, but decent. Good service and cleaning! Breakfast is mediocre, could be a lot better with just a little bit more effort. At late hours,...

Cozy rooms, clean. A little small. Easy to access from Central Train station if you use Rick Steve's directions to follow to the hotel. There are many Thon Hotels in Oslo; when we got lost in other parts of town, we'd go into another Thon hotel to ask for help. All were helpful. Excellent breakfast at this one. Good value...

Stayed at the Thon Spectrum (don't judge all Thon hotels in Oslo on this review, there's a lot of them in this city) for a business stay. It's not located at the best part of town, but it's certainly no pandemonium out there. Let's just say it's a reasonably priced place to stay in this very expensive city. The good...

I walked to this hotel from Oslo station which should have taken no more than 10 minutes, however unlike the other Thorn hotels in Oslo, this one proved hard to find and was in a area of the city that I would rather have avoided late at night. The receptionist was very friendly and efficient and access to the room,...

Really good location in city center. Well-trained and friendly staff on reception desk. Proper buffet breakfast. Ordinary rooms, but the window (from floor to ceiling) was really nice. Good value for the money (but, of course, Oslo is overpriced)

The location of the hotel is very good, although it is a rather noisy environment in the weekend. When you have a room in front of the hotel, you will have a lot of noise. Unfortunately, the room does not offer airco. During my stay, the weather was great, so airco would have come handy. Not everyone on the staff...
