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.
You will soon notice moderation like no minibar, snacks or bottled water, no lotion in the bathroom and so on. The reception area has got a small shopping corner, but the range of snacks and stuff is poor. The bar is closed on Sundays due to few guests.
The room is standard, in every way. It is comfy, but forgettable. Actually, I can’t remember what it looked like. The view is non-existent, but I guess you are not looking for a scenic view at Skøyen anyway.
The morning breakfast is standard equipped, but tasty. The breakfast is the highlight of a stay at Scandic Sjølyst.
The price is the biggest issue, the stay wasn’t worth NOK 1350,-

Thank you for leaving a comment here regarding your stay at Scandic Sjølyst. We are sorry to hear the hotel did not live up to your expectations. The hotel is located 5 minutes away fromt he main city centre and can easily be reached by both train, bus or tram. The area is less busy as the city centre, however the reception staff is more than happy to recommend good restaurants int he area or good shopping.
As for the minibar in the room, Scandic as a brand in the Nordics do not offer stocked minibars (some execptions). The minibar of the hotel is as you mention the minishop next to the reception, where you can buy both beverages, sanwiches, snacks and toiletries. If you as a customer is looking for something differently we can direct you to one of the three close by food shops in the area. I would like to have your suggestions on what you felt was missing in the shop. I would very much appreciate the feedback to email@example.com
Furthermore our standard rooms do not offer then minibar, lotion or bottled water. However if you require these services, we have superior extra rooms at a higher rate with these facilites: Bathrobes, lotion, conditioner, 50NOK voucher for use in the hotel, extra tv channels, stressless tv chairs, 42inch flatscreen (with expection of the stocked minibar). Please do not hesistate to contact any of the staff during your stay with questions or feedback in order for us to help you while you are here.
I hope this information was of any help for you for your next stay with us!
