We were headed to Gothenburg, Sweden to celebrate our wedding anniversary this saturday, but figured the drive from Bergen was a little long in one go, so we put in a night in Oslo in between. We chose the hotel initially because we've had pleasant stays with Scandic hotels before. Placement: the hotel seems localized in an industrialized part of...

Thank you for your feedback. Your analysis is very accurate and we're working on having something to offer to all of our guest, even the ones who wants something easy and affordable to eat, without having to sit in the restaurant. This will come very soon.

Travelling a lot in my work I have grown to love the Scandic concept. Top service, good fitness rooms, clean and nice, simple rooms, always a friendly staff – what more do you need? I have top rated most of the Scandic hotels in Norway by now. On my way to a lecture assignment I bought breakfast at Scandic Helsfyr....

Hi and thank you for you feedback. We have been through this after your departure, but since you choose to make a public review I will go through this once more.

They serve amazing breakfast! Lot of different food and drinks, you can choose whatever you want. I can really recommend this hotel to everyone who doesn't care if the hotel is in the city center or not. You can reach metro station in 3 minutes walk. We had a little problem to find the hotel going by the main road....

The hotel 5 minutes from the T-bann station by foot, only taxi possible at 3 a.m. to reach the airport bus or flytoget. But very nice personel and tight windows preventing the noice from the near speedway road.

We enjoyed the stay very much but most of all we appreciated the help of Gunnar and Mustafa late at night when we had a problem with our luggage and they went out of their way to help us. It made the stay in this clean, comfortable hotel with an unbelievably big and delicious buffet breakfast, unforgettable.
