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

This hotel is next to the central train station. I did stay there 1-2 November 2014 for 1 night only. I did have a room number 531 on the fifth floor. Room size was fine for me with bathroom ironing equipment, small fridge, TV, phone, 2 beds and desk. It was a very quite room faced an office building but... 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. Staff were always very friendly,... More

The location, friendly staff, excellent breakfast and comfy beds combined with good value for money (for Oslo) makes this a great hotel from which to enjoy an Oslo city break. I'd certainly stay here again.

One night stay at the hotel while attending a conference downtown Oslo. In general I am a bit skeptic to the area of the hotel and Scandic as a chain, however the stay was good. The room was quite new and clean and a plus for having the option to connect my laptop to the TV. I am quite picky... More

It was ok value for money in an excellent location, but I was not very impressed. The room was very small. There was splashes of dirt on the walls in the room, and in the bath nearly all the tiles down by the floor was cracked. It just looked shabby. The bed was comfy though, and the hotel was rather...
