I stayed at Scandic Victoria for two nights in July. The front desk was efficient, my room was perfect for one person and the food was very good. The bathroom was clean and large enough. The shower opens into the bathroom as other reviews mentioned but I had no problem with water flooding the bathroom. I ate breakfast early as... More

What a wonderful hotel. Accommodations are first class and the restaurant is superb. Ideal location in the heart of old Oslo, near the waterfront. Easy walk to the piers, restaurants, parks, Nobel Peace museum, Opera house, shopping. Wish we could stay longer, but much more of Norway to tour. Would definitely return to this hotel.

at first entry of this "boutique" like hotel I was a bit disappointed but I found my stay there wonderful despite small rooms. The staff was exceptional in every way and gave me all the extra bedding I needed for my arthritic condition to be able to lie comfortably. The location is what makes this hotel a good place to...

Less than 5 minutes away from everything in Oslo! Modern hotel, clean, great beds. Large bathroom. A lot of choice at the breakfast buffet, and very friendly staff. Unfortunately there is no pool or gym on site. They do give you a voucher for a gym at another location. Parking on the street is free on sundays. Otherwise there is... More

Well located in Oslo center. Reasonable price for quality, our room was fresly renovated. Breakfast mainly salty, limited selection of sweet stuff (no cakes, for example, only fruit, jam and some croissants). No minibar in the rooms, replaced by small drink shop in the lobby

We arrived late, but with a prepaid voucher and a clear statement on the reservation of a guaranteed room even in case of late checkin. No rooms available: this has been said by the clerk. Of course they found another room in another hotel, but at 2:00am we had to take a taxi and go in a location where we... More

Easy walking distance to main attractions. Also walkable from Oslo S if you want to save on T-bane or cab. Pleasant hotel, friendly service (although sometimes understaffed, so you have to wait at reception for a while even if you just have a simple question). Generous spread for breakfast and food was good. Room was fine, although my thermostat didn't... More

I should have listened to the other reviews about the lack of natural light in rooms facing the interior of the building and overlooking the breakfast area. The room was small and dark and definitely crowded for more than 2 people. The two single beds were comfortable but the pull-out sofa bed for the 3rd person was miserable. Bathroom lighting... More
