The first impression very often has influence on entire stay. We made the reservation to this hotel about a month before. We e-mailed two days before our arrival of the early morning flight and arrival. We were not surprised that our room was not ready at 9.30 am, when we arrived. We rearrived 1.45 pm, to hear: no ready room,... More

Normal hotel in the very town center. The problem is, most rooms are inside with view to the hall. This make the room a little dark, but acceptable. the bigger problem is the steadily noise of the air-condition/heating, which you cannot switch of because the window is not for open. If you could arrange with this, you might enjoy the... More

Excellent location in the city center, 5 min walking distance from Aker Brygge and Karl Johan street. Large room and shower, large breakfast buffet with all the goodness of the Norwegian cuisine (fish, crispbread, jams, pancakes etc.).

The rooms are nice and mostly quiet. (Atleast if you get a room towards the atrium) The service is very good and the breakfast is awesome. Sentral to just about anything in Oslo, and shot distance to any trains, taxis and trams.

Stayed for two nights in a 'superior' room. Room had a corner window facing onto an atrium, but a pillar was located directly in front of it allowing no light into the room. There was no ceiling light, just a few lamps, so it was very dark and gloomy, and small for four people. Kids sofa bed was very uncomfortable.... More

Dear xlancy, we aim to meet and exceed your expectations, I am sorry we did not manage to this time. Usually our rooms get a good review due to size, location and quiet in spite of being in the city centre. We will of course address these issues and I thank you for bringing them to our attention so that... More

The Scandic Victoria is really well located, a couple minute walk from the train station, steps to Karl Johann Gate, and steps to the waterfront. Its on a quiet side street, which is beneficial on weekend evenings, particularly in summer. The rooms are small, but they are clean and well appointed for the size. When you pay budget prices, you... More

I stay in this hotel probably 3-4 times a year. Have tried around 10 others across the city over the past 15 years and this is a decent, consistent accommodation. There are no real frills but value is good and the location is excellent, between Aker Brygge and Karl Johan's gatan. The National Theatre railway station is 5 mins walk... More

The Scandic Victoria is not a bad hotel, but it seems to me like it is one of those Hotels where you get this feeling that you will not come back. The room I got was just a little smaller then I expected, even for a Scandinavian hotel and their new "style" (art, colour scheme etc.) was not to my... More
