This hotel was £60 a night, which we found very reasonable, well linked to public transport (around 15 mins to get into the centre of Oslo by underground or bus), clean and smart. We were not looking for a luxury hotel with added extras, just somewhere to rest our heads, and we found the Scandic to be very adequate. The...

Stayed for a week as I was doing a course in Oslo at GlobalKnowledge. The location of the hotel is perfect if you are in Oslo for a course there or at Glasspaper. For a weekend trip to Oslo I would stay closer to the city centre. Positives: - Good hotell restaurant - Decent breakfast - Superb beds, and nice...

I stayed at this hotel quite some times, but I think I'll find a better restaurant next time in Oslo. I've have different kind of food here but this time I noticed twice that the food was not as hot as I expect it to be. A la carte meal prices are high for the quality of the food.

Stayed for one night on business. Very much a standard Scandic hotel - fine, but quite expensive for what it is. There's no minibar in the room and instead a snack bar in reception. Beds are comfortable enough, the room is quite light as there was a big window. It's in a fairly industrial area so not a great place...

Dear ElisaNorway. Thank you for your honest review. We're very happy to hear our conference department met your expectations. As for your next stay, ask the front desk if we have available rooms in our west wing. These rooms are facing towards Valle Hovin, and away from traffic.

Normally Scandic hotels were a good choice, but this in special was not the best experience. The price is good, especially for Oslo, but it was not very clean, was cold in the room and very simple bathrooms. The connection to the city is fast (five minutes by walk to the metro or bus station). The breakfast was good.

Scandic Helsfyr is a hotel sitting just out the centre of Oslo. It sits more in a business district rather than a tourist area. The best way to get to it is via the metro.
