The hotel position is incredibly convenient! It's 2 mins walking from the main street and from the deck where boats (for fjord sightseeing) leave. The staff is quite gentle and polite; the breakfast is not so rich for italian way to have breakfast. The only negative aspect is regarding the noisy room: there was no way to switch off the...

Ideal for business or tourist alike this is well placed for city or quay. Standard Scandic attention to comfort and cleanliness throughout and a youthful warm and helpful welcome from reception staff. Breakfast had a good selection of expected sustainable foods and the hot breakfast too, so it will suit all tastes. Good all round feel.

So the Victoria is not on the side of town a normal traveller BUT it is on the side of town you want to be. Situated only 500yds from the dock, it's a short walk away from where the locals and expats go to eat/drink and be merry which makes it excellent for nightlife. Also it's great in the day,... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for a weekend break and found it to be great! The room itself was very comfortable- great size, clean, well looked after, and quiet. The location ideal for wandering around Oslo as near the ferry and tram lines. The breakfast as well was quite good - lots of great options and filling! Found the... More

Just o stroll away from the National Theatre and Parliament, not much behind Town Hall, and close enough from the exclusive Marina and the Nobel Center. Quiet area, excellent service from reception to restaurant.

It's a nice hotel. Location is fantastic as you can pretty much walk everywhere. Bed was comfortable, needed extra pillows. Room and bathroom were clean. The room was decent as far as size. The breakfast was just amazing. Great variety of breads, cheeses and cold cuts. They even had gluten free products. I definitely recommed this place.

Very good place, very good breakfast and diner. Close to all important places of the city. Rooms small and clean, but conditioning not so perfect. Too noisy and too cold. Anyway, I recomend this hotel for staying in Oslo.

We stayed in the Scandic Victoria in Oslo in April and too be honest, we expected a little bit more of this hotel. We got a room on the 6th floor. The window in the room was looking at the inside breakfast place. We could open the window but it didn't make sense as there was no fresh air coming... More

Dear Vincent A – I am very sorry we did not live up to your expectations. Some of our guests prefer these rooms facing the atrium because they are so quiet and we are right in the city centre. And, you are correct 26 degrees is way to hot. I’m not sure what happened here but we will try to... More

Good location in the middle of central Oslo. Walking distance to Aker Brygge and Karl Johans gate. Got a nice and quiet room with plenty of sunshine on the 10th floor. Free 20/10 Mbit/s WiFi. No safe in room. Excellent breakfast. Spotless. No minibar any more, but the fridge was still powered on. Perfect for storing my own food/drink. Had... More
