With Oslo being an incredibly expensive city, I was pleasantly surprised at the comfort, cleanliness and value of this property. The hotel is adjacent to the Oslo Sentralstasjon (an express train from Oslo Airport stops here - 20 mins from the airport, with frequent service) and attached to a shopping mall, restaurants and another shopping mall across the street.

We got a really good deal via the Scandic Hotel website. Overall price seems to be based on the day of arrival -we arrived on a Thursday when it was quiet but the hotel was completely full on Friday and Saturday. The breakfasts are served in an adjoining restaurant but it is literally only a few steps away from reception... More

We stayed one night after arriving late by plane before catching the train in the morning. In these circumstances the hotel exceeded expectations, 2 minutes walk from the station, efficient check in, clean and comfortable rooms, good shower, WiFi available and a really good breakfast selection in the Egon Restaurant.

hotel just for the pupose of staying overnight and being close to railwaystation and airport-train; rough surroundings (central station); ok hotel but don't expect any extras; no bar - only selfservice in-hotel shop for emergencies; breakfast outside a contracted restaurant shich is more a concept evening restaurant, not too fresh; freindly and helpful staff.

The hotel is located in the heart of the city in the same building as the train station. It's clean and nice and the staff is really friendly. We'd booked a room for two adults and only got one pillow and cover. We went down to the reception and they fixed it right away. The breakfast is served at a... More

Really convenient location, as others have said. Being over the central train station means that not only is it easy to reach from the airport bus/train, it's also really easy to get back to from anywhere in the city using Oslo's fantastic bus, tram and metro system. So that's a bonus. The beds were really comfortable, the shower was nice... More

Scandic Byporten is at a very convenient location ...right next to the central station and you can get to the hotel from the airport in a matter of 20 minutes using the train service.

This hotel is easy to find, clean, and safe. We were only spending one night in Oslo and we needed something accessible from the train station and airport. This was perfect. Not to mention, the breakfast was fabulous!

Very good location right above the central train station. Family room was tight with not a huge amount of storage space but it was clean, functional and good if you just use for a base for sleeping. The staff were friendly although not very knowledgeable about local attractions, three times giving us incorrect information.

Located right at the Central Railway Station, from this hotel you are walking distance to the bus terminal (for connection with Rygge Airport and Ryanair flights) and the Central Railway station for airport trains (Gardermoen). That is basically what is good about the hotel. The rooms are OK, but not more. Bathrooms are basic, with a shower. The lobby área... More
