This hotel has an excellent location at the Oslo central station (although it is quite difficult to find from the inside as it isn't sign posted). There is a very pleasant lobby with friendly, helpful reception staff. As I walked along the corridor to my room, my heart sank, as this was very sparten and I thought the rooms may... More

I stayed at this hotel for three nights. I was warmly greeted by the reception staff. I found the lobby area quite interesting. Although small it has a warmth about it with an eclectic selection of furniture. The rooms were small but functional. My bed was two singles pushed together which made it slightly uncomfortable. The breakfast was included and... More

Cleaning was made, but techinical problems not solved. In addition room is very modets and not too luxurious. All of that is for the price higher than competitors in the neighboorhood. I... More

The reception staff was very friendly and serviceminded! I found the Public area in the lobby very nice, and one could read newspapers, take an apple etc. in nice surroundings. But the corridor on the 5th floor where we were staying was really terrible, especially the carpet. The room was small, but clean. A better location for taking Public transport... More

The Scandic Byporten was suggested by my client, but it was a disappointment from beginning to end. The room I had booked was in an area due to be renovated - I was offered a refurbished room, but of a lower standard than the one I booked. I kept my original booking, but the room was tatty, not very clean... More

We stayed just one night. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Without even needing to ask a crib was placed in the room for our son. Breakfast was good and had a large section.
