Have tried serveral hotels in Oslo (15 trips in 2016), and this was one of the best hotels in Oslo... It's a bit outside the city center, but 10-15 min walk and then you are in the center, and you will see old/traditional Oslo. The hotel staff nice and polite, got some good info when checked in. Got a room...

I have stayed here twice now and it is great because it is a short walk through a beautiful park to where I need to go for work. Also, it is a short walk to the city center where all of the main attractions are. A short walk to many nice restaurants. So the location is A+ ! The staff...

The Scandic Vulcan proved to be a great choice. It is situated in a great area where there are a good choice of restaurants, as well as the the one within the hotel. The breakfast was excellent, and the staff were very relaxed, helpful and friendly.

In comparison to other 4 star hotels the Scandic Vulkans lacks in many aspects. The location is nice and it is 15 min walk to the city center. But unfortunately, our room was on the side of the street so that we could not sleep due to the noise. My bed was moreover covered with hair of men. When I...

Thank you for your honest feedback! I am terrible sorry that we did not meet your expectations. We take a mandatory review of our procedures, so that this will not happen again. Unfortunately we do not have table service at breakfast, and because of our sustainabilityhotel - no minibars in our rooms. But our staff friendliness should be better -...

Staff were super helpful on check-in. Room was cozy, but great design aesthetic: very modern and funky. Hands down, one of the best continental breakfasts we've ever had. I would happily stay here again, especially considering the proximity to a great neighborhood full of restaurants, art, and paths for walking around. Transport to the hotel was convenient. A tramline stops...

Really nice hotel, not too far away from the inner city. There's a market hall right next to it, as well as several clubs and restaurants. Staff is very friendly and helpful, breakfast offers a wide range of dishes, perfect. Gym is a bit small, but okay, if there are just two or three persons working out. Would stay there...
