just stayed for one night and expectations very much surpassed. Room fine for travellers and quiet (a bit worried because of the closeness of the station) with free wifi, exceptional friendly welcome and service from a young man who was eager to help and extended our room checkout until the afternoon free of charge. Breakfast very generous and replenished regularly....

The hotel was perfectly located for visiting Oslo. Check in was simple but lacked the personal touch- it was more of a process. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was good but the number of other guests made it far from relaxing. I would return for the location.

I was looking for a hotel that was pretty close to the train station with a good price, as I arrived late in the evening and didn't feel like carrying my luggage with me very far. This was in fact very close and I got good price for the room as well (online booking). This was my first Scandic experience...

Very convenient location - 1 minute from a central station and 10 minutes to all main attractions. Maybe a littlle too loud if your room faces the square in front of the hotel. But this is a problem of all hotels located close to the station, I believe. Nice rooms, good breafast, friendly staff. Price is ok for Oslo. I...

Good location but in serious need for a renovation. Those hallways with old carpets were not pretty... also thought the superior room was too basic, no view, very plain bathroom.. not worth the extra $ On the plus side they did offer a rich breakfast buffet and the staff were very friendly and helpful. They truly went out of their...

Hello Thank you for staying with us this July. All the rooms and the common areas were finished refurbished in 2014. We are awaiting the renovation of the hallways, but we will eventually take those as well. I hope you had a great stay in Oslo and thank you for the nice remarks on our staff and breakfast.

I confess I was expecting more for the amount of money I paid. However this is Norway, where everything is awfully expensive, so I guess it was my fault. My room wasn't big, but the airconditioning was working, and that was a must considering the heat wave also Norway experienced in June-July. This hotel is really central and really 100...
