I was spending a weekend there with my girlfriend. Location is as good as it gets, straight at the centre of Oslo and 30 seconds walk from the railway station. The hotel is pretty outdated. The lobby and the corridors remind me more of a hostel than a four-star hotel. Our room was also dated; worn wooden floors, paint coming... More

We wanted something with easy access from the train station as we had lots of luggage including bike bags. Very easy to get to from station. Just a short undercover walk through the shopping mall. Staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were on the smaller size and the bathroom was a bit tight but had nice decor. It was... More

I was pretty surprised by the gesture of the front desk officer as I checked in (on 24 August) since I didn't expect that my request for a room with a tub will be granted. In fact, he even gave me an extra spacious room. I was very pleased by the gesture/action considering that my requests in the hotels I... More

Located right outside Oslo central rail station, this is a good, modern hotel. Facilities are limited - small lounge area in reception, no dining room - but we knew that when we booked. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was on the 3rd floor and had everything we wanted for our short stay. It was small but... More

I visited Oslo in August 2014 - this was recorded as the warmest Summer in Norway history, so that was a start to a great visit. The Scandic is centrally located. It's in the heart of the Sentral District, accessible directly front he train and bus station (recommendation: take the speed train in from the airport. takes about 15-20 minutes).... More

We arrived at 10.45pm from Flam on the train so we chose this hotel for its location in shopping centre right next to the station. The rooms are small but well appointed. Did have to ask maid for extra pillows, this was a problem we had all the time in Scandinavia. We were at the back overlooking roof of shopping... More

This hotel is located downtown next to train station with greater Oslo with in walking distance. I appreciate the staff as they were very helpful.

This is a very nice hotel in a perfect location for access to the main train station and the heart of the city. We stayed here in July during a very warm spell and while the rooms was warm, we requested a fan which made the room generally comfortable. The room was an average sized standard room, but the bathroom... More

The staff are all very helpful and courteous especially Ms Julia - who is most professional and efficient. The breakfast at the Egon restaurant is very very good.
