The rooms are quite small and compact, but you choose this hotel for it's excellent location in the center of Oslo and not for staying at the hotel :-) Breakfast was good as expected and always at Scandic! Friendly staff and very professional regarding the measures around COVID-19 at the time of the stay.

I always feel bad leaving anything other than great reviews, but I was a bit disappointed by the hotel. The room was small, which is normally fine, but you really did have to squeeze by the bed to get to the far side of the room. The bed was comfortable and the shower water pressure was fantastic but the room’s carpet was very stained and grossed me out a bit. I also had trouble getting the door to lock behind me when I left and was glad I checked it a number of time to ensure it was actually locked. Breakfast was fine and interaction with staff was pleasant. The location is really great and the tram noise wasn’t too disruptive. Had the carpet seemed cleaner, it’d have been a more pleasant stay. I had requested an iron for the room, which unfortunately wasn’t there upon my late checkin. I’m sure I could’ve called down to the front desk and asked, but I didn’t bother so that’s on me. I previously stayed at the Scandic Victoria, which was a much nicer and cleaner room, but also didn’t have an iron.

This is a pretty good standard business hotel with a very good location. Small restaurant area, but there are 100 choices right around the area. The rooms are small, but very clean and somewhat under equipped now during these times. That's OK. The tram runs right outside, so there is noise if you want to have the window open. Breakfast was around the corner, but quality is OK compared with others now.

Stayed for 4 nights in a room on the 3rd floor (312), not noisy at all even though we were overlooking the street and the trams. Excellent location, very central. Breakfast was really good, lots of choices and a waffle machine! All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We would return if we visited Oslo again.
