I know you are a budget hotel but seriously the front desk/reception service is very terrible and rude. It was almost like as if you all hate working there. Dusty room and very dirty bathroom. The only good thing was the friendly waitresses at breakfast.

Receptionist jerked his thumb at their toiletries corner and curtly said "you can buy." I expect the general manager will reply to this by preaching about scandic's green (and very profitable) policy of not... More

Stayed in the hotel several times due to business, the hotel is conveniently located by Skøyen station in Oslo. Rooms are renovated (most of them) and large, beds are comfortable and breakfast is good. Wifi and service in general is very good and the staff is helpful.

This hotel attracted me for its location. That factor was the most important as far as I had several meetings in the area. For those who are traveling as tourists I'd rather recommend to choose another hotel with more moderate prices.

Location is convenient to go to Oslo City center, Fornebu, Airport. Close to train station and bus stop. Hotel is good and they provide nice range of breakfast. Room service is ok. They never managed to get coffee, milk and sugar together in the room. It is either two of the three items which was very amusing. I wondered what... More

Visited this hotel 2nd time now. Main reason is close to trains and workplace. Room is good, however, the workarea sitting facility is really not suitable for more than 1 hour. Hotel surroundings are great, and recption quick and friendly. I will be back again.
