I found this hotel to be afforable with an excellent breakast buffet. Lots of options for every diet. The breakfast was definitely the best part of our stay. Staff was helpful and courteous. Was able to buy an Oslo Pass from reception which was quite convenient. Room was comfortable, quiet and the mattress firmness was just right. Location of the... More

Considering what you pay for it, the hotel is in line with expectations. Rooms are comfortable and big enough. However, for those who need to iron, it is worth mentioning that the ironing area is in the same local where there are the gym showers, so is not difficult to find water on the floor just near the ironing area....

This was my first time on the Helsfyr. I have chosen it for its location as it was very close to the place where I was taking a week's course in Oslo. Check in and check out went really fast and the stuff in the reception was very friendly. They have an online check out option that I did not... More

We stayed 1 night in the hotel. The reception staff was very nice & helpful, the room was nice, and we the parking is free. The fridge in the room was warmer than the room itself though, and when we tried to open the curtains, the left curtain-rail came towards us.. The worst part unfortunately was the dinner in the...

The room was good. Nothing really special about it - there was enough space, a place to put your clothes etc. One lightbulb was missing but got it there with ease, shower area had wrong shaped door and everything else was OK. I didn't like the pillows much - couldn't get very good sleep. I liked the idea of having... More

We booked for a double room (we knew we may not get it), stating we were a couple but ended up getting a twin. The hotel is nice and you have access to a free Sauna and gym, which was good! Overall I was expecting more bang for my buck but hay ho.

Business Hotel. You only want to stay in the Hotel if your are in the area for business. Because there are no Restaurants, shops, whatsoever around (Train Station is 300m away) The quality of the food in the restaurant is weak compared to other Scandic hotels. The hotel also does not offer Room service (the guest has to come down... More

Easy to locate just off the main roads and no need to enter the city tunnel system for those who are simply passing by. Clean, modern and decent sized rooms with the usual doings in the bathroom etc. Breakfast was good, with freshly cooked produce etc.. Not cheap around 1300nok, but that's Norway/Oslo. Check out smooth, although I did get... More

The first time I stayed at this hotel, Impression was mixed. Had me a superior room, and that was great. Clean, nice view and a very comfy bed (most important to me). The hotel as such is old and a bit wore down, the bar is way too small, area for improvement there. Had me a dinner in the resturant,... More

First time in this Scandic and one of the best. The staff was very friendly and flexible when our plans changed during our stay. Breakfast was very good. Hotel is in an area with not much dining opportunities, so memu in their restaurant could be larger.
