This is only my 2nd time in Oslo but this hotel is certainly nicer than the previous hotel I stayed in. The rooms are spacious, clean and have everything. Beds are comfy and air conditioning works. Wifi is free. Breakfast very good. No restaurant but location is right in the centre of Oslo so there are lots of restaurants just... More

While the hotel and the room were pretty comfortable i cannot go pass by the fact that someone stole from my luggage at this hotel. It was the first time this happened to me and I don't see why someone will take a few pack of cigarettes. They have no manager to talk too between 20:00 and 8 o'clock in... More

I had a very bad experience at the hotel. The first room I checked into had dirty cups and old tea bags near the mini bar. The second room I was then moved to had mouldy fruit and a welcome pack for someone else lying on the table. The third room I was moved into was a suite, but surprisingly,... More

We arrived the hotel about noon, and we were able to get our room at once. The room was spacious, clean and modern. The breakfast buffet was great and had lots of choices, for Instant 2 different types of salmon. We also found the price for the hotelroom was good value compared to other hotels in Central Oslo. There is... More

Nice hotel just a few minutes walk from the central station and close to the harbour so in a nice location. My room was fine: spacious, warm and clean. Excellent breakfast. Only gripe is I didn't realize there wasn't a restaurant for an evening meal but there are lots of bars, restaurants etc nearby.

We had an one night sleepover, but we enjoyed our stay very much. The staff was friendly and welcome. Our room was facing inwards, but it was clean and modern looking. The lights were easy to manage, and not one master switch, as someone wrote earlier. We had parked our car in the basement, which was handy, though somewhat narrow.... More

The Scandic Victoria is in a perfect location within central walking distance of some major sites (nobel museum, karl johann shopping street, Royal Palace, National Gallery, Parliament, etc).
