A good property right in the city centre. A few minutes walk to several of the sites in central oslo. We were 2 adults with 2 childern. The room was pretty OK. The softa bed worked well. Service is pretty good except in the restaurant during breakfast. The first day I noticed that when one of the forks fell down... More

At first, I mistook the hotel for a theatre - as it is not well signed for a hotel. On arrival, the front desk couldn't find my booking but courteously worked to solve the problem. Desk and reception all a bit dated and old fashion. So too are the corridors – but all improves greatly when you enter a clean,... More

Nice hotel, clean, nice bathroom, perfect location, excellent breakfast. Reception was efficient, room available from 13.00 in stead of from 14.00 so very convenient. Parking costs are high but you know that you are in the center of town

I reserved a economy room for one person. I did not have much expectations because I have stayed in several different Scandic hotels before. The receptionist was nice and friendly and told me they had upgraded my room to a suite. That was such a nice suprise! I had plenty of space for myself with two rooms. The suite would... More

Rooms are very small but a double room for 1 person works fine. OK bar. Out of soap in shower. Breakfast ok but they struggled to keep up when too many people. Allready 45 min before closing breakfast a Saturday morning, they were out of the most popolar food.

Dear MorJon Thank you for your feedback here at Tripadvisor. Regarding our rooms we have both smaller and bigger double rooms, I can see that you stayed in an economy room those are a bit smaller than our standard rooms. Regarding crowded breakfast area, we can now offer two seating areas so that should not be a problem now. Best... More
