The hotel was very good, staff spoke english, breakfast was amazing, rooms were clean. What i didn't like was the shower, it is not comfortable to use, and mostly the place of the hotel. It is surroudent by the offices and it is pretty hard to reach on foot from the city center. Although, i think that it fits the... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are located in a commercial district and there are benefits and drawbacks, but in general we feel that the public transpost and free parking weighs in very positively More

Massive redevelopment building site opposite which began drilling far too early and disturbed our sleep, Maybe hotel will be nice once the redevelopment is done but my son and I also felt 'threatened' by the groups of youths hanging around near the metro in the evenings. Photos on site totally misleading, have been taken at angles. My son chose the... More

Hi and thank you for the feedback. I appreciate your kind words. I will look in to the sauna-case immedietly, I see that it doesn't relly work the way we planned. Heating up an unused sauna is not good for the planet, but a cold sauna and little instructions helps no one. I hope you can forgive us for this... More

We use this hotel as it is close to our office in Oslo but that would be the only reason. Rooms are dated and are in serious need of a renovation. They look dated. The beds are too soft and I haven't managed a single good nights sleep whilst here over the last two weeks. Last week the shower was... More

Hi and thank you for your feedback. We will constantly update and renovate the hotel, some parts are pretty new, and other parts are older. This we are trying to change now and in the coming future.

I had in a last review some negative experiences at Scandic Helsfyr. This is now gone and I am happy to report a major improvement. Rooms are as always large, most of them with a very nice view. Reception is the usual Scandic top standard and the membership makes checking in and out even easier. WiFi is free and it... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights during a recent trip to Oslo. The hotel is close to public transportation (5 minutes walk to the metro) and close to the city centre (7 minutes from Helsfyr to Jerbanetorget).

Hi and thank you for your feedback, We did have some problems this summer on occation, and I am really sorry this affected you. If we run out of something, you should be informed upon arrival, not after ordering. We have taken this seriously and make internal changes in the restaurant to make sure this doesn't happen again.

We chose the Scandic Helsfyr due to the very reasonable rates and free parking on site (you'll need to display a ticket which you can get from reception). It's located in a fairly nondescript business precinct and we didn't see any restaurants or bars in the vicinity. However, there's a metro station less than ten minutes walk away, from where...

Ok for the price compared to other Norway hotels but not by international standards. Room small but clean. Unpleasant bubbling sound from drains in bathroom. Restaurant menu was pretty painfully expensive but the two salads we got were actually better than expected. In between a building site and sad looking business district so we were forced to expected in house!... More

Thank you for your response. We are located just outside the city centre, which means that most things are 5-10 mins away, but on the other hand the area is less busy, free paring as on of very few hotels in the city and competitive prices.

We will always try to improve and other areas will be improved in not so long. More

Hotel is situated out of Oslo center in some business park. But the metro is near by and easy to go to Oslo center in 15 min.
