Was greeted by the receptionist upon arrival and as on many other facilities in Oslo she was swedish and therefore with an excellent sense of service. We quickly got our keys and could park the car temporarily just in front of the entrance to get the luggage out. The room was very generous in size and the bathroom even more... More

The location near the central station could not have been more convenient. The breakfast was outstanding, and the staff were friendly and very helpful. When we had to leave before breakfast one morning, they packed us breakfasts to take with us and had them waiting for us when we left, no additional charge. The beds were very comfortable, too!

The hotel was very friendly and we enjoyed our stay there. If we would wish for anything it is that Europe hotels in general had softer beds. We are more used to foam, I guess. The location was perfect for walking and the hotel gave us directions. Everything was clean.

Right next to the bus station, train station, metro station and tram stops, this hotel was ideally placed for my short stay in Oslo. The tourist information centre was also close by, where to save time I bought a day travel card to take in as much as possible of the city. Breakfast was fantastic, with everything I could have...

Can't go wrong with scandic. Was here for a few days and location is prefect. Room was comfortable clean and quiet. May be small for some but I was very comfortable. Breakfast is great and free internet was very fast. Would come back. From business to family stay I would recommend!

This was my second time in a year staying at Scandic Oslo City. Like last time, I was very pleased with my stay. Staff was very helpful when it came to places to eat and see, as well as other in-hotel things. Our room was spacious, nice and clean. There was some noise from the street, but only the kind...

I stayed here for 2 nights, a Friday & Saturday and both nights I was woken in the early hours of the morning by loud, drunken people outside my room. This is perhaps to be expected when staying in such a centrally located hotel though. The room was very basic, beds were comfortable though. It would have been nice to... More

We only had one night in Oslo and this hotel was perfect. It is located just outside the train station with many public transportation options just out the door. The staff was friendly and helpful for planning our short time in Oslo. The room was comfortable and breakfast was good.

Centrally situated, two minutes walking from Oslo Central station, reachable in less then 30 minutes, from the airport, using NSB trains. The rooms aren't very big but clean and extremely well designed, well comfortable and offering all you might need. Good soundproofing, very good WiFi.
