Stayed two nights when visiting my company's Oslo offices a few hundred yards away. Rooms are basic but clean and comfy. Buffet breakfast was great with plenty of choice inc smoked salmon and other fish. Staff were very friendly. It's an approx 45min walk to the Aker Brygge. There's a team stop about 3 mins walk from the hotel which... More

Stayed here on a business trip for one night. I had a very small and very basic room, but it worked to sleep in. The breakfast was rather good and the staff where friendly. It was quiet far from central Oslo, but close to the client I was working for. If I go to Oslo for vacation I probably wouldn't... More

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.

Was doing a scandinavian trip with my tour group. Upon arrival, I walked to the counter and requested for two toothbrush kits and a shower cap. 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.
