The hotel is going through a renovation and we had one of the new rooms. Rooms are very spacious, modern and comfortable. Very centrally located, close to the Oslo S train station and Karl Johan street (all walking distance). The front desk staff were extremely helpful in giving us directions on how to get to places. Pastries and coffee available...

Had a nice balcony which I enjoyed. Room was a bit tight though getting around. Staff was friendly. The location was OK. The price was more reasonable than some of the others downtown so I went with it.

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. However, I think you might have reviewed the wrong hotel? We do not have any rooms with balcony at Thon Hotel Spectrum. As there are 15 Thon - hotels in Oslo, it is easy to make the mistake of choosing the wrong Thon - hotel to review....

But therefore also fully exploited so small rooms, a lot of people and traffic and little space in the common room. Perfectly fine place to sleep, but not a hotel feel for relaxation. Shortest path to Spektrum concert hall so easy way if you are going to a concert

Oxford, Ohio
Reviewed 28 August 2016

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,...

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...
