This review should actually be in some ways quite good but in others really bad... Reception: Kind staff, but still not with a full understanding of what it means to be Scandic. Room: I got a very big room (434) but with very little light due to the fact that the room was placed at an internal corner and the... More

I had a few nights at the Scandic Oslo City in May 2015. Before travelling to Norway I saw a few reviews for the hotel which mentioned the surrounding area being unsafe. These seem to be from a few years ago and while straying north or east of the hotel takes you through less desirable areas, the immediate surround is... More

The hotel is centrally located and the staff is friendly and helpfull. The standard room is very small, rather book a bigger room for comfort. No tea/coffee station and safe in room are dissappointing. The cleaning is average. The breakfast was good with a big variety.

We have all the coffee and tea you would like at the front desk, and a superior room will always be bigger than a single room. Thank you so much for the kind words regarding the staff and the breakfast. You made our day!... More

Central location near train station and major bus links around Oslo. Very handy for getting around. Central location on Karl Johnas Gate great for tourism and shopping. The central location also provides ample noise. Not the hotels fault, but it does impact upon the amount of sleep you get. Room is well appointed in that modern European way. Separate douvet...

Hi Alistar... Thank you for writing the feedback to us. It does sound like you had a good stay here. We have a lot of different art on the walls in the hotel, a bit of each for everyone. Our conference rooms are all named after famous Norwegian artist. Being located in probably the busiest place in Norway there are... More

Hi K7555ZUpe... Thank you for taking the time to give us this feedback. I am happy to hear that you found our service and breakfast good. The best part is that if you find your room small, we have plenty of other room alternatives at Scandic Oslo City. From the small economy rooms to Presidential suites. You can just take... More
