This hotel is very conveniently situated for the station - ideal if you're arriving/departing by train from/to the airport (tip: get the ordinary train - only stops once and costs half the price of flytoget) or coming from Bergen on the train, as we did.The entrance is a bit tricky to find as it is actually inside the shopping centre...

We arrived and left by train, and as this hotel is just a couple of minutes walk away it's perfect if you don't want to pull your heavy bags far. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room didn't have a view, just overlooked the shopping centre, but at least it was quiet. The room we had was... More

Stayed here specifically as near station and were travelling into and from oslo by train. However still struggled to find hotel, its directly in the shopping centre thats part of station. Room was small as we sort of expected for a reasonable price on oslo. They only clean your room if you leave sign out which is not great. Breakfast... More

A nice hotel with a very convenient location and rich breakfast. The view from my window was spectacular (you should take a higher store with the fjord view). It is right next to the central railway station, so you get out of the train/aeroexpress (flytoget), walk out of the building, and enter the hotel. All types of public transport have... More

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 The hotel is pretty outdated.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
