The best breakfast at the hotel we've ever had, lots of choice and great sized modern rooms. We have no complaints. Very friendly staff too. Great location and near some really nice restaurants we wouldn't have thought of going o otherwise such as dognville burger.

I usually stay at Continental hotel in Oslo, but this time I chose Scandic St Olavs Plass. I have always been impressed by Continentals brekfast, but Scandic St Olavs Plass exceeded every expectation, I would even dare to say it was better... Close to every destination in Oslo, business and pleasure at a great price point.

This is a standard mid range hotel with small, functional rooms. Breakfast has a good range of foods. Not all rooms have desks which is a drawback if you are here on business so ask first when you make your booking. Otherwise not bad value for Oslo which is extremely expensive and most budget and mid price hotel rooms are...

An excellent hotel, I really enjoyed staying at. The standard room is big and decorated in in a way setting it apart from the standard hotel room. A nice detail I really appreciated. The breakfast is one of the best I've tried in Oslo. It's deliciously prepared and you'll find lots of items you won't find in the typical hotel....
