We spent two nights at the Scandic Oslo City and were quite comfortable. The hotel is well located right across the road from the Oslo Central Train Station. This is ideal for travellers flying into Oslo as the train runs from the airport to the station in under half an hour. There are a number of restaurants in easy walking... More

The location near the station was a plus but otherwise it was in need of refurbishment. The room was small and a long walk from the Reception desk and had no toiletries. It would be embarrassing to recommend this hotel to friends.

I booked a single room for a, for Norway/Oslo standards, very reasonable rate. It included breakfast and the free hotel WiFi. I arrived around noon and requested to check in early as I would be out of the hotel until midnight. Although the room blocked for me was not ready yet, the girl at the Front Desk spent a few...

Located just outside the main trainstation, subway, trams, and buses. Still quiet. Efficient and clean. Can't speak for the breakfast, slept too long every day. The room was small, but not too small. Fresh interior.

The hotel is average. But that is not not everything. Definetly worth staying at. The location is just outside the main station, easy access to the bus and tourist loops. Plenty of restaurants nearby and lots of attractions, right on the pedestrian street. The hotel is clean, the staff friendly. The room was reasonably for size. Even on the pestrian... More

I arrived in Oslo late at night and was very fortunate to stumble upon Scandic Hotel. The night shift front desk clerk and security guard were very helpful and courteous and checked me in speedily and without a fuss. The price was surprisingly low and it included breakfast. I travelled solo, so I chose the smallest room available which turned... More

I've stayed in this hotel twice, before and after a round trip through Norway. If you're using public transport, the location couldn't be better, just a minute's walk from the Central Station with metro, bus and tram connections just around the corner. The interior is nice and modern and there's a bar (which I find very convenient if you want... More
