We have stayed here a few times, and the hotel functions well. Nice rooms in a quiet area. No noise from traffic or surroundings. Free parking - a great place if you are driving to Oslo. Also a great place to have a small business meeting. Easy to locate.

We used the Scandic Helsfyr as a base for a 5-day city break. It was cheap, (for Oslo, exceptionally so!) but that wasn't reflected in the service or amenities. The rooms were spotless, and the shower was wonderful. The bed was extremely comfortable, and we're used to a King Size with memory foam mattress at home, so we're really hard... More

This hotel is located in a business district, so as others have said, there isn't particularly much to do around the area. It is however less than five minutes walk from Helsfyr tube (T-Bane) station which it self runs long hours. Journey time to Oslo city centre is about 10-15 minutes. Even peak time isn't very busy! (by London Standard...)... More

Nice hotel, kind employees, - stiff prices in bar and lack of employees in bar. Hotel rooms are very nice and modern. Ekstra fee for 1 extra person was cheep. The subway to town is short and the sub station is close.

Scandic Helsfyr was a very nice clean hotel, near the subway stop at Helsfyr and the SAS Flybus, airport bus, stop. It's a quick 4 stop ride in to town using very clean and frequent subway trains. Restaurant and bar were good too.

Stayed overnight during a business trip. Was booking in last minute and only Superior rooms were available at rather high price (over 2000 NOK). Anyway, I had to stay in Oslo and the price level was similar in whole city, so I booked Scandic Helsfyr, which is close to our local office. The check in experience was not good as... More

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
