I went to the Scandic Sjolyst for a weekend break in Oslo to visit my husband who was there on business. The location is pretty good, it is less than five minutes walk from Skoyen station which has direct trains to the airport. The room was large and the beds were very comfortable. It had a large TV with about... More

The hotel is in a very nice location at Skøyen, close to the train station and in an area with plenty of shops, restaurants and coffe bars. I am guessing that this hotel has just about only business travelers as there are plenty of large companies nearby and there's really no reason to stay at Skøyen if you are taking... More

The standard of this hotel is amazing! Despite our holiday being plagued by problems, we always could rely on The Scandic Sjoylst. Even when an online hotel site hadn't actually booked us a room, the receptionist found a room for us despite the fact that it was there busiest time of the summer (there was a fashion show going on)....

I chose this hotel because it was close to where a friend lives who I was visiting, and not for any other reason. As others have said, the rooms seemed a bit tired, and in need of a make-over. The staff were helpful, the restaurant area nice, breakfast great, and lots of good restaurants nearby. The area seems to be... More

The hotel is close to our office and therefore used much. The hotel has nice personell and efficient check-in and check-out. Breakfast is good. What is really needed is an upgrade of the rooms, and aircon(not in place) Will not stay here during summer.
