The hotel was in the middle of everything. So visiting all the places was easy. Good was great and the hotel staff was the best!. Compared to the hotel we stayed in bergen, this was a breath of fresh air. Food is served in the egon Resturant but it is just on the hall way. I would highly recommend it.

This hotel is well situated in adjacent to the central railway station and the hotel itself is OK and up to the expectations one would expect from a Scandic hotel, even if the room I had was extremely small. The problem I had was that the breakfast was not served in the hotel itself but in an adjoining restaurant. A... More

If you are looking for a very central hotel close to Metro, tram and bus, Scandic Byporten is 20 - 100 metres away. There I no restaurant in the hotel, an breakfast is served in the nearby restaurant, Egon.

We stayed here for a couple of nights on the weekend of 14/15/16 November. The location is wonderful as you can walk to it from the railway station, through the shopping centre, without getting wet. The rooom was fine, spartan but clean and big enough for a weekend break. There was a lovely view out across the station square and... More

Same small sized room as last year :D doh, but cold, old furniture, nothing in the fridge but it was still plugged in (?!?!?), glasses not wrapped in plastic, thermostat in the bathroom didn't do anything, window didn't close properly. A little noisy.

Location couldn't be better. It took me a few minutes to figure out the way from Central Station to the Hotel. But location is amazingly strategic. I came from Arendal by bus. Step out @ Bus Terminal, walked 2-3 minutes to the Central Station and from there to the hotel another 4-5 minutes. Easy! Staff was very friendly. My room... More

Great hotel for being located right in the center of Oslo. Made travel very easy with access to the train. Breakfast each morning was very good as well, very filling with many offerings, great way to start each day at the restaurant across from the lobby. Traveled solo, so the size of room was not a priority for me, if... More

Hotel is located next to Oslo Central station, and within walking distance of many points of interest including Opera House and Fortress. Hotel room was small but perfectly formed - bed was a bit soft, but still slept ok. Bathroom was modern and well designed. Breakfast was included in my booking, and was Scandinavian buffet.
