This hotel used to be part of the Rica chain, now converted to Scandic. The rooms have gotten a much-needed facelift, with new decor, carpet, chairs etc. The result, while looking stylish and feeling modern, turned out rather dark. There are still no drawers, so forget about unpacking your suitcase. Some hangers are available in a small closet. Our room... More

The hotel is very convenient for the central train station, and you can actually reach almost with out having to go outside if you head through the shopping mall and Metro station. The staff were friendly, and allowed us to check in early, which was nice of her. I've been in plenty of hotels where they won't do that, even... More

A perfectly acceptable hotel right opposite the central station. The room was pretty small with a single bed, but adequate. It's not going to win any awards, but with convenience and value in a city like Oslo, who cares?

Nice hotel, easy to reach by train, very nice and helpful people at the reception and a good breakfast. I will book here again if I have to stay again in Oslo. Thanks to the staff for all help during my stay at the hotel.

The breakfast is also of typical Scandic quality. A good selection of Foods and Beverages. Good value for Money. There are rooms with a nice view. Some rooms face a... More

Brilliant place to stay! As I am English, to me this is the equivalent to the Premier Inn - fantastic room, bed and sleep - with a Scandinavian twist. If you are looking for an 'authentic' Scandinavian adventure then pay the money and stay elsewhere but if you want a good room to explore from with good service then stay... More

I was here for a business meeting, including dinner, and I stayed overnight. The conference rooms are somewhat "hidden", and you must walk through the hotel room corridors to get there. There are signs, though. The business lunch, refreshments and the dinner were all very good. The hotel room was clean, newly decorated and nice, and the location are exeptional... More

SUMMARY: This is a large hotel occupying almost an entire city block, above the shops and directly opposite Oslo’s central station – in the heart of the city shopping area. The rooms are small but reasonably well laid out; service was efficient and welcoming - I'd happily stay here again (and indeed have already stayed here twice). THE GOOD: The... More
