Less pricey than other hotels in the area. The location is good as it is only a short and easy walk (even with luggage) from the National Theatre railway station, which connects conveniently to the airport. The city hall, national gallery and a few other landmarks are nearby within walking distance. Bus and tram stops nearby the hotel give easy...

Stayed at this hotel for a business trip and to give it it's credit it is in a central location with lots of restaurants close by, as well as fairly near the train that takes you from the airport. On the downside my room faced inwards over some sort of courtyard or office which meant you had no privacy as...

Dear PayboyPK! Thank you very much for staying at Thon Hotel Cecil. Thon Hotel Cecil is an efficient city hotel in the middle of the city center of Oslo.

In the city center, nice four star hotel. Very good breakfast, small but well furnished rooms, wifi available and working ok, free coffe at the lobby and possibility to print out at the same place. If you are leaving before the breakfast open the staff offers you a cold breakfast bag.

Perfect location in the middle of "Spikersuppa", only a few meters off Karl Johan & the Parliament. My room was facing the atrium and I had no issues with neighbours looking in or the soundproofing. The room was, as in all budget hotels in major cities in Europe, small but yet big enough and the bed was comfortable. Nice and...

Dear Wikander! Thank very much for staying at Thon Hotel Cecil and for your positive feedback. We appreciate it very much. Despite our prime location in the city center our rooms are very quiet as most rooms are facing towards the hotels atrium. We are looking forward to welcoming you back at Thon Hotel Cecil.

Stayed here for business travel. Rooms are small, but typical and in need of some updating. Many rooms overlook the atrium so you can stare at or be stared at by your neighbors. The soundproofig is not very good(someone else reviewed that it was fine, this is not the case). The night I stayed there was some construction in the...
