I stayed in the Thon Rosenkrantz Hotel in early June as part of a quick city break to Oslo. The hotel is very centrally located, within easy walking distance of the Central Railway Station (10 mins) and a number of attractions such as the National Theatre, the Stortinget (Parliament) and the Royal Palace.
On arriving at the hotel, I was met by friendly reception desk staff who efficiently found my booking and ensured that I was on my way up to my room within about 5 minutes of arriving. The lift up to the room is operated by your room key card which aids safety and security.
On entry to the room, I found it modern, clean and well-equipped. Room features included iron and ironing table, kettle with tea and coffee, mini bar, a safe with electronic keypad, telephone, large screen flat panel Samsung smart TV, and Bose Soundlink mini-speaker (for bluetooth devices). The tea, coffee and bottled water were complimentary. The bathroom was suitably proportioned with a good shower having two shower heads (one large and one small) and plenty of towels. Just outside of the room was an ice machine with plentiful plastic cups and a shoe cleaning machine.
One benefit with this hotel was that they serve a 'light dinner' to guests in the 8th floor lounge from 1800hrs (not in the ground floor restaurant). The breakfast in the morning was excellent with a wide choice available and included both cooked and continental options.

"Nice hotel close to everything for any Visitors."
We spent 8 days in Oslo and from this hotel we were able to walk almost to every point of interest.
The hotel has an wonderful breakfast buffet and light dinner, more than enough varieties of food for the entire day.
The staff of the hotel is very polite, helpful and ready at any time to give to the guests a hand.

The hotel upgraded us to a top floor suite. The views were amazing, the room quiet and the bed super comfortable. I had toothache and needed to see a dentist. First class receptionist sorted this out for me. We couldn't have got better service.

"Very quiet hotel, great location,great breakfast."
We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff was very friendly, breakfast was superb and location excelent. We stayed on the 5th floor and it was very quiet. The only problem was that 1 of the 2 lifts broke down on Saturday and was still not repaird on Tuesday.

This residential district with turn-of-the-century townhouses and most of Oslo's embassies is one of the city's premiere addresses. The renovated former shipyard at Aker Brygge, just south of the City Hall, now has waterside apartments, numerous outdoor bars and cafés, as well as a huge shopping complex. The Royal Palace in Slottsgarten and the National Theatre are both 500 metres away.
