Enjoyable short stay in central Oslo at this comfortable modern hotel with helpful staff. The outside of the hotel isn’t that glamorous as are some of the immediate adjacent buildings but inside is a whole lot better: modern attractive public areas including reception and the large separate restaurant and bar areas. It’s not often I stay in a single room... More

This hotel is 5 minutes walking from all the most important places in Oslo. It's in a quiet area, close the university and National Gallery. My room was quite small, but I was alone, so I cannot say how the double are. Also in my room I did not have the opportunity to control the temperature (centralized setting)

The Scandic St. Olavs Plass is a well located and modern hotel in Oslo. The staff were fantastic! Special thanks to Adrian at reception who went the extra mile in helping with my Oslo needs and my additional stays at Scandic hotels immediately after. The breakfast is also fantastic and certainly one of the best in Norway!

The perfect place to stay: excellent location, nice lobby bar with perfect service and 5-10 minutes to any Oslo tourist attraction. Even my son was eager to play iPad downstairs in the Se.Ua lobby bar rather than in the hotel room :) Great atmosphere and view.

We were sent here after the Scandic Byporten adjacent to the train station was overbooked. That was the beginning of a really not great experience.
