Near train station

Posted May 25, 2017
Hotel is a 5 minute walk from train station and close to a lot of restaurants. Very convenient if you are taking early train for the Norway in a Nutshell tour. Rooms are updated but the bathroom is very small and you have to step up to get in it.

Awesome location

Posted Feb 20, 2017
Pros: Concierge service and hotel breakfast.
Cons: Add "cappucino" option to the coffee machine please. The single rooms are small but it was all I needed and meant that the price was reasonable.
Location: A few minutes walk to the central station and the Opera House & Ballet. 30 seconds to Karl Johans Gate, where you will find tourist shops and BK.
This hotel is superbly located just 3 minutes walk to the central station, and 5 minutes walk to the Opera House. The concierge staff gave excellent assistance with train timetables for the following day. Instead of a stressful morning hoping that my train connection to Oslo from Sweden was not delayed prior to my afternoon flight, I stayed the night at Thon Hotel Astoria and went to a performance at the Oslo opera and ballet (80kr tickets!!). Even if you're not an opera or ballet fun go and see this beautiful building - sunset fromt he rooftop over the fjord was awesome! Being less pressured for time I was able to take the local train to the airport at 93kr instead of the fast airport train at 180kr, and I started the journey back to Australia with a warm shower and awesome hotel breakfast (free with room booking). Good decision and I will happily do this again next time to Scandinavia.

I've stayed here a number of times in the last year, Everybody's preferences are different but I find the Astoria comfortable and convenient (including two very shot blocks to public transportation that will take you anywhere in Oslo). Yesterday, I had a good Flytoget connection but it took me only 35 minutes from my room to the check-in counter at OSL.The breakfast is among the better of the ones of the hotels I stay in and can keep you going for most of the day if you end up missing a meal. There are numerous restaurants and convenience stores nearby including at Oslo S. I no longer bother with hunting for a room in Oslo - I just book a room here and be done with it.

The WIFI was extremely poor. Claiming that the room comes with free WIFI is simply untrue.
