We have had several overnights at this hotel, really because its a great place to stay! We travel here as a group of 10-12 people, and we always have to check in early, but it seems to never be a problem, helps us a lot. Nice, standard rooms with good beds, but the breakfast buffet and the people working in... More

I was here two nights. The reception and the bar/restaurant were nice. The staff was friendly and helpfull. I was a bit disappointed about the standard to the room I got. It was signs of use. The minibar was empty, so the purpose was to cool down your bring-along-drinks? The breakfast was well assorted in Scandinavian standard. The rooms facing... More

The room was clean, the bathroom was more spacious than the room would have indicated, the reception people were amazingly nice and helpful. It is not luxurious. The restaurant and bar are only open Monday through Thursday, breakfast (included in the room price) is very very good. If luxurious is what you look for and a bar and restaurant on... More

The location is perfect if you are in Oslo for business and your business is on the west side of Oslo or in Baerum. The rooms are by no means spectacular but they are clean and you get at good night's sleep. The staff are very friendly and service minded. The breakfast is really good.

The front desk people could not have been nicer or more helpful, especially Tijs (Oh I hope I got that right). The breakfast was good and the people working the breakfast were very nice and friendly. There was plenty of variety and I love bread and there were 7 choices of breads. My room was very small, but very clean... More

I stayed for 4 nights for business reasons. Located in a business district, but only 5 minutes by train or 15 minutes by bus to downtown Oslo, or you can walk it in well under 45 minutes. Very easy access from the airport (30 minutes) as Skøyen station is within 3 minutes walk of the hotel. You do not need... More

Scandic Sjølyst is located near Skøyen station and the Airport Express train. Accept from that, there is not much to see or do in the area. The reason for my stays at the hotel is pure business.

I stayed her for two nights. Good hotel a bit away from the centrum of the city. Be advised if you come by car, that the city ring (where you pay toll fee) is situated just at corner where you turn into the hotel. Choose the wrong way and you will pay a lot more than you expect. It could... More
