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

We arrived at the hotel restaurant at 7 pm, I had my meal served at 8 pm, completely cold, after 10 minutes I have been given it back warmer but did not taste good at all. At 8.45 pm we are still waiting for the dessert ordered at 7. Unbelievable! I wonder when we get out of here! It's a... More

It is a little out of the city center. but that might be ok. The breakfast at this hotel is ok, when I stayed there the bacon and egg was almost out even if... 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. The rooms were a bit outdated not the Scandic standard but clean. maybe because we were in old part of hotel. The breakfast was perfect as usual for the Scandic hotels. Parking is... More

We spent two nights there. One at the beginning and one at the end of our tour. After the first stay we could book the same room-so friebdky and helpful staff. Various breakfast of good quality. The rooms are modern, good equiped and clean. There is enough parking space around the hotel which is free of charge.

A good hotel if you are traveling through Oslo (with free parking) , but a bit long off from center if you are visiting Oslo for sightseeing. Not the most luxurious place to stay but it's clean and for the price you pay it's most definitely up to standard. Would stay here again. Some construction work ongoing at neighboring site... More

Locations are similar to other scandics, no surprise. The sauna is nice and the parking is free of charge. The choice in the restaurant menu is limited (I stayed 6 nights). The breakfast is perfect but the opening is two late (7h00)

Thank you for your feedback. We are aimed at families, and we are even building more rooms adapted to 4 people. Normally the breakfast opens at 0630, but in the summer season people tend not to come until 7, but we always fix sandwiches for the early birds. More

Very good service, clean rooms, excellent breakfast.Free Wi-Fi in.The bathroom with toiletries for personal care. Hotel is located far from the city center. Outside the window highway and conctruction site. Noisy. Free car park. Outside the hotel there green areas and trees. Good connection to the motorway Oslo or airport directions. Ultimately I recommend a stay at this hotel.

Thank you for your feedback Far is a relative word. With a helicopter it actually only takes 60 seconds to the town centrum. Jokes aside, we are happy to be blessed with a lot of public transport here and a good free parking. And of course a super breakfast. Welcome back any time! More
