Stayed here on business at the end of May, as it was booked and paid for by the company I was visiting. This hotel felt a bit like a Travelodge only clean and not so tired. It was pretty basic, but everything that was there seemed to work well. Maybe this is an example of Scandanavian minimalism? The room was... More

I was there in November and I have to say that I wont go there again!...Room wasn't clean enough. The towel had black spots and the sink was fairy yellow due to dirt...:(.. The stuff wasn't helpful. Although the heating system was down but they were quit slow to fix it. I could see others were complaining as well.

Just e standard hotel, everything o.k.. Rooms good and clean, complete, friendly service and a good restaurant and breakfast facility. Only disadvantage, a bit outside the city between other business. And a fair price.

Every year I stay at the Scandic Hamar City during Easter. I have only good things to say about the staff, the service and the breakfast. But for the first time we got a room in the old part of the hotel. The room could definitely need an upgrade, at least the bathroom. Took a closer look at the door... More

My room was Scandinavian modern and very spacious. There was an expansive view of the area including the Viking Ship arena. The staff was very friendly. The clerk noticed that I had picked up a Hamar regional guide in German and was quick to find me an English one. Parking is across a small street but it is free. I... More

I stayed in this hotel on several occasions in 2012 and 2013. The hotel as decent rooms, decent breakfast, and it all comes at a very decent price. Too bad this is one of those silly hotels that place a bible next to your bed... why? As a nonbeliever I really find it a bit annoying to find such a... More

OK sized room with VERY comfotable beds. They let you say your preferences when booking your room (e.g. close to/far away from elevator, high/low floor and type of bed). Knowledgable and pleasant staff at the reception. Breakfast is very good, with excellent choice of both warm and cold food. Have not tried the restaurant other than that.

Clean and comfortable business hotel. Room was OK, but the main window was impossible to close properly- a bit chilly when it was -20c outside. Staff was efficient and professional, but not a warm hospitality as I´ve experienced at other hotels. The breakfast was OK, but a bit dull.

I've stayed twice at the Scandic Hotel at Hamar. It's a 10-15 minut walk away from the railway station/city center. A bit far to walk, and a very short trip by taxi. The hotels main attributes is the adjoining conference center, which is very good and flexible - with a large hall for big meetings, and lot's of different size... More
