Stayed in this hotel due to its proximity to my workplace and not for the low price or anything else. I have no general complaints or praise as the hotel is just one of these ordinary hotels you find everywhere. However, I would expect maintenance to be carried out: the holder for the shower was broken but no sign of... More

We enjoyed our stay here. As a family of 3, we came to Oslo for a weekend sightseeing. This hotel was 5 minutes walk from the metro station and then just a short tube ride to the centre. Despite booking for 2 adults and one child when we arrived our room only had twin beds. We reported this to the... More

This is a nice hotel 10 min away from Oslo sentrum with the subway. very nice rooms and a ok restaurant. perfect location if you want a quiet stay but in the same time live sentral. ps. The subway from Helsfyr also goes directly to Holmenkollen skiareana if you like skiing.

I liked the hotel, and my room was large (I like large rooms). Breakfast was great, a plus too! But: The bath was made for disabled persons. Unfortunately it's not made for non-disabled. It will be wet all over if you take a shower (there is no border and just a curtain, so nothing to keep the water from flowing... More

Once again a great stay. Rooms are quiet and warm. The staff are friendly and attentive. Especially during the very icy weather, warning everyone to be careful outside. The food is very good both at breakfast< a wonderful choice, and evening meals.

Visiting a local business to give training, I arrived a day early on the Saturday, to give me the Sunday to see Oslo (which I didn't: apart from a few restaurants, Oslo is closed on a Sunday!). But let me review the hotel...... Bed: simple typical nordic style, but surprisingly comfortable. Modern and pleasant bedside lighting. One single socket near... More

This hotel was £60 a night, which we found very reasonable, well linked to public transport (around 15 mins to get into the centre of Oslo by underground or bus), clean and smart. We were not looking for a luxury hotel with added extras, just somewhere to rest our heads, and we found the Scandic to be very adequate. The... More

I stayed at this hotel quite some times, but I think I'll find a better restaurant next time in Oslo. I've have different kind of food here but this time I noticed twice that the food was not as hot as I expect it to be. A la carte meal prices are high for the quality of the food.
