Thon Hotel Astoria is easy to find if you are coming out of the Central Railway Station.
If you come out of the end of the station, head to the pedestrian crossing on the far left hand side of the concourse, cross the road and head up the street opposite then take the second left and the hotel is 50 meters down on the right.

The hotel is currently (9/18) undergoing some refurbishment so there were builders and a little noise and one of the lifts was boarded up to carry materials.

The reception staff are very friendly and helpful.

The room we had was quite small with a small shower room jutting out into the room. There was very little room in the shower room and could be a problem to people with mobility issues or larger people. There was very little room between the toilet and shower door which opens towards the access door. The access door is made of opaque glass and is see through when the light is on.

The room had a medium double bed, desk and flat screen TV. There was limited clothes storage.

It was functional for the two nights we were there and it was clean and tidy. With the window open there was quite alot of noise through the night.

The breakfast was served in the dining room at the rear of the hotel on the ground floor. Breakfast had all the usual continental meats, cheese and a selection of hot food of egg. bacon and sausage. Tea, coffee and fruit juice were also available.

There is free tea and coffee available in the rear of the reception area all the time.

The hotel is well located for all the city attractions. If anyone is looking for a good pub there is one in the circle behind the City Hall which stays open until 23:30 the Fridtjof Pub ten minutes walk from the hotel.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and it was really rather lovely. Room was a good size and they have recently redecorated. Lovely decor, big tv, comfy beds, nice shower. Great location. Friendly staff. And a Delish breakfast with a good selection. Complimentary tea and coffee also in the reception area that you can take to your room or away with you in a takeaway cup.
I would recommend this hotel.

An easy walk from the airport train with suitcases. Friendly check in, clean comfortable room, amazing buffet breakfast! We had the Do Not Disturb sign on our door and they kindly left fresh towels at our door. We will be back next week on our return trip. Did I mention the amazing breakfast buffet?

A very nice and clean hotel and very kind staff, perfectly located to tour the city; close to all the attractions and Central Station. A shame I could not stay longer. I am not that kind of person writing a review when staying somewhere, but this hotel well deserves my positive review. Highly recommended. Breakfast, rooms, etc... everything was excellent!!

The Astoria is very central within easy walking distance of the main station. I was with a group attending a conference and so we had single rooms. The rooms are SMALL, but were very clean, comfortable and modern for a budget hotel. The bed seemed slightly larger than a standard single, which is good as I'm 6'3" but it didn't mean there was much floor space. However there was enough space for hanging and stacking clothes for a 5 day stay. The shower room was small but shower hot and powerful. The rooms and corridors were well sound proofed and I slept with the window open without being disturbed. The hotel did lack a central lounge area, but the staff were happy for us to sit in the large breakfast room to socialise in the evenings. The breakfast is excellent, a great selection and plenty of seating. The reception staff were helpful and all spoke very good English. We had an issue with our booking and they sorted it out with the minimum of fuss. The reception area is small though for what is quite a large hotel and there was sometimes a queue at busy times. No air con, but that's made clear on the website and in late August wasn't a problem. All in all we had a much better stay than we expected (going by some of the reviews we read). If you're looking for a budget hotel in Oslo and don't plan to spend the whole trip in your room, then I'd recommend it!

Room Tip: Try to get one of the newly renovated rooms.(Seemed to be renovating from the top down) Staff were happy to accommodate a swap if possible.
