Oslo was our first stopover for our holiday in Norway. We knew beforehand that everything was going to be extremely expensive, so we tried our utmost to book hotels e.g. which would allow us to walk from the station to the hotel, instead of having to rely on taxis. We also read reviews about the hotel, and were happy to... More

this hotel was great, it could not be more convenient coming from the airport train as it is literally right there as you walk outside. It is also across the street from the beautiful opera and the lovely water. Quick walk from the main shopping street, Oslo is pretty big though so just be aware you won't be able to... More

I was part of a group whose flight out of Oslo had been postponed due to weather. Our airline booked us rooms for the night at this hotel. When we arrived a few were allocated rooms, the rest were told the hotel was "overbooked" and the Scandic Byporten would accommodate us. On arrival at the Scandic Byporten, we were told... More

OK but not special. Hotel is convenient if you are seeing opera. Walking distance from the station and close to public transport. Some rooms have great views but they didn't give me one. Breakfast ends at 10 so I missed it.

This is my third trip to Oslo for Norwegian Opera performances at the Opera House across the road, and my second stay at this particular hotel. Couldn't be more convenient for the cultural life of Oslo, and situated close to the central train station makes it the perfect stopover for travellers both by rail and air [the airport shuttle runs...

Our first impression was to be warmly greeted by a professional receptionist at check in. Room was great, incuding fridge, tea making facilities and a well appointed bathroom. The jewel in the crown was the excellent breakfast buffet with enough choice to suit all tastes. Despite arriving close to the end of serving time there was no evidence of tired... More

The Thon opera has a great location, in front of the water and the opera, just next to the train station and basically in the center of everything. We had a rolling incident that spoiled our stay though. During the second day of our stay they had a refurbishment work inside the hotel (on top of refurbishment work outside which... More

As everything else in Norway the stay was quite expensive but we needed something close to the train station and the hotel is just outside the station. Our stay was very comfortable and the hotel provided everything we needed for our baby. Breakfast was excellent and provided everything one would expect from a continental breakfast. The restaurant is very good... More

The hotel is newly refurbished and is much more modern than when we last stayed in September 2014. The beds are large and so comfortable (they give Premier Inn beds a run for their money and that's saying something). The linen is crisp and clean.
