I came here with my brother just for the weekend and we were very surprised when we saw our room. One bed which we had to share and very little space to even walk, cant unpack your bag, nowhere to put your stuff and you can hear people in the other rooms. Its fine if you on a very tight... More

Hi LisaHarvay136 Thank you for this review. I am sorry you felt you had a small room. I really hope you told us during our stay so we could have changed it. Scandic Oslo City is an old building and we have many different types of rooms, but we will find a good room for you next time. Hope to... More

We booked through booking.com and realised the room was nothing like the advertised one. Room was so small that we couldn't find space for our two trolleys. Staff was really unhelpful, in fact we asked how to reach Ekeberg park and the lady said we could walk. She didn't mention we had to climb a hill, or that works would... More

Hi Diferdin Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry your stay was not to your satisfaction. We are a newly refurbished, but the building is old ans all of our rooms are of different sizes. Look at our Scandic-website to find more pictures. The Ekerberg park is a hike, and I am sorry you were given misleading advice. We... More

I stayed two nights at this hotel (now called the Scandic Oslo City) in January 2015. The hotel is right across from the main train station with very easy access to public transportation to all of the sites that Oslo has to offer! The breakfast was great but unfortunately opens a little late on weekends (7:30) so we missed our... More

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

Hei Picea Thank you for this long an great review. I love getting a though through review like this! The hotel is newly refurbished and we have changed a bit for what it used to look.

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?
