Trondheim, Norway
Reviewed 15 April 2013

Stayed here for a weekend mid-april. The hotel was fairly easy to find from the Oslo central station, but we made a wrong turn and nearly ended up in Grønland. The hotel lies in a fairly shady street with lots of beggars and immigrants (legal and illegal i suppose) and I would recommend not wandering around there past dark. The...

Located centrally, the city centre and harbour well within walking distance and metro and tram and bus stops just up the street. Free wifi. Room clean, comfy, massive tele and free hot drink making facilities. It was warm too which when the temp outside drops is very welcoming! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The best bit was the...

Warned by previous reviews of the possibility of noise in rooms facing the street, I asked for a quiet room, and got one with no view, facing an interior courtyard, but very quiet. The breakfast was fantastic, with salmon, many meats and cheeses, delicious fresh bread, scrambled, soft-boiled, and hard-boiled eggs, juices, and fresh kiwi, pineapple and other fruits. Internet...

Dear guest, The team at Thon Hotel Spectrum thanks you for the nice feedback. It is very good to hear that your stay with us was enjoyable. The rooms facing the back of the hotel are quieter, the drawback being that the rooms face the courtyard and other buildings. Unfortunately, we were out of bars of soap during your stay,...

Reviewed 21 November 2012

I stayed at the Thon Hotel Spectrum in September 2012. It is conveniently located close to shopping area and restaurants. Check-in was rather fast but room allocated was along a corridor which had some steps that made it hard to pull a heavy suitcase. My room was clean and decent even though the bathroom was comparatively small. Breakfast was good...

This being a '' budget' hotel , by norvegian standards, one does not expect real luxury. It is,though, a nice hotel, in the center of Oslo, with comfortable, big rooms, impecable personel and good breakfast. The pedestrian street in front of it ,is noisy( or : alive) but I don't think it is a major problem. There are two 7-11...

Ok hotel but nothing special about it. Breakfast was good, but not very big. The food was not marked with any names, so it was hard for one of my associates with allergies to know what to eat. The service was ok too. Nothing to point a finger at, but it seems to me that the people working at the...

We stayed in this hotel for three nights and as this was our first visit to Oslo we didn't know what to expect. We found the staff helpful and polite. The room was exactly what we expected. The negatives were no tea and coffee making facilities and the room was so hot hence we had to open the windows which...

Living in Norway, fairly regular visits to Oslo, we kinda knew what we were in for booking at this hotel. The hotel is situated on a pedestrian street with bars in close vicinity, so yes; there will be music and noises in weekends. If you're a light sleeper, don't book in (any) city center just to complain afterwards. We had...

Staff was very unpleasant and rude. We asked for a baby cot two different clerks and they refused to provide with various excuses. Sleeping there on a saturday night was impossible: loud music from the street all night long. As I said, there are better alternativas for a similar price. Try Comfort Hotel Boersparken, much newer, nicer, helpful staff and...
