I forgot a pair of trousers in the room. I have called the same day the reception to alert them and ask them if they could kindly collect the trouser and give them to a colleague who was still in Oslo. The receptionist promised to call back. She never did. They did not contact the house keepers who cleaned the...

The hotel is extremely nicely located just across the central railway station, close to the amazing Opera building, and short distance from the sights. Liked the breakfast a lot, and benefited from it being served already at 6:30 - my train left at 7:02.

Perfect location for being in the heart of Oslo. The hotel is small but clean and full of amenities. Wifi works very well and there is a fitness center and a sauna. I recommend also the breakfast room very wide selection of food!

I stayed at the Scandic Oslo City for a single night on one of my business trips. This was my first stay with this particular hotel and I had booked a standard room. When checking in to my room I noticed the room had windows facing the streets outside. The sound insulation in the windows was so poor one would...

It's definitely a student, backpacker style budget hotel, and in an expensive country - confusing. The location is great, and that's about all. Check-In process was slow and laboured. Rooms are old, tatty, and very basic - soap dispenser basic! It is impossible to set the room temperature and even basics such as bottled water are at extra cost. Beds...

This hotel is so old fashioned with tired rooms.. Breakfast and reception are ok. The room is very dated and the heating sounds like a waterfall stopping you sleep. The single bed is very small. What hotel in 2017 only has twin or single beds for 140 euro a night? Worst thing the bathroom. Broken tiles, no plug and mould...

This hotel was ok, but nothing more. The room was pretty small, although clean and my backside room was nicely quiet. The bathroom was terrible small. Medium hotel, although the price indicated higher quality.
