This hotel is in a great location. Our flight arrived late evening to Rygge airport and our transport dropped us off at the central bus station which is in the centre of Oslo which is great because is was right next to the Oslo S main station the hotel is a 2 minute walk from there. We were greated on... More

I was looking for a hotel that was pretty close to the train station with a good price, as I arrived late in the evening and didn't feel like carrying my luggage with me very far. This was in fact very close and I got good price for the room as well (online booking). This was my first Scandic experience... More

Very convenient location - 1 minute from a central station and 10 minutes to all main attractions. Maybe a littlle too loud if your room faces the square in front of the hotel. But this is a problem of all hotels located close to the station, I believe. Nice rooms, good breafast, friendly staff. Price is ok for Oslo. I... More

Good location but in serious need for a renovation. Those hallways with old carpets were not pretty... also thought the superior room was too basic, no view, very plain bathroom.. not worth the extra $ On the plus side they did offer a rich breakfast buffet and the staff were very friendly and helpful. They truly went out of their... More

I confess I was expecting more for the amount of money I paid. However this is Norway, where everything is awfully expensive, so I guess it was my fault. My room wasn't big, but the airconditioning was working, and that was a must considering the heat wave also Norway experienced in June-July. This hotel is really central and really 100... More

Very reasonably priced, perfectly placed, good breakfast, nice people. The room is small, but clean, the shower good. So if what you need is a place to stay near all the sights ... go for it. I would not hesitate on coming back.

+ Byporten is in center of the city, located next to the train station, with conection to the airport. Breakfast was great. Free coffe all day long. Perfect for short stay. They checked me in before 12 :) - Cleanliness not the best.

The location is nearby the shopping street and easy to walk around where you can find restaurants everywhere nearby. The breakfast is really good with various of option of Norwegian food. Room is very clean and wifi is fast. The bathroom is quite spacey too. Overall, the price is for the location and breakfast.
