5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at this hotel in Oslo for 5 nights in July, 2016. It was a little off the beaten track on a quiet square but close enough to walk to all the sights. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The best part of our stay were the personnel at reception. They were friendly and cheerful and always ready... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights durring setten de mai, and during a strike, and had fantastic service. The rooms are small and can definitely not fit three people comfortably, but the amenities are great and the breakfast spread is to die for.

Quite a central hotel, pretty much close to everything, don't need a car or to use public transportation, you can walk everywhere. People at the reception were really nice and pleasant. Everything really clean and tidy. The room was not that big, but it was enough. The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom had a big shower. The room... More

Stayed for 2 nights on a business trip. Normally stay at the Scandic near the Central Station. The St Olavs is ok but dull and a bit run down. The lobby looks nothing like the photo. Will not stay here again.

Scandic St Olavs plass (previously Scandic Edderkoppen) is in central Oslo. The closest railway station Nationaltheatret is about 700 meters away, 8-10 min walk, where you’ll find commuter trains, regional trains and the airport train. Oslo mail train station is 1.2 km away, 15 min by foot. Friendly staff, clean room, nice bed and free and fast Wi-Fi. The hotel... More

The weekend we were staying at the hotel there was building work going on. The breakfast room was overcrowded and understaffed. The problem seems to be more managerial than the structure of the hotel.

This hotel is newly redone and everything is modern end nice. Rooms are normal sized with nice bathrooms and the location is very central. Service was very good! Parking in the streets are much cheaper than in the garage.

This hotel is very centrally located & within easy walking distance to the tram, metro and two great shopping areas (the touristic Karl Johans gate and the more local Bogstadveien with an awesome view up to the Holmenkollen ski jump)... For someone of average fitness, it's about a 10-12 minute walk to the central train & bus stations from this... More

Good and clean hotel. Friendly and helpfull staff. Very good and rich and complete breakfest. Central location in the city. Recommended for conférences as good facilities are available. Perhaps less positive is the fact that limited facilities for dining are available.

Dear JAK-1957-TA Thank you so much for your review. It sounds like you had a great stay so I was a bit confused why we were rated 3 stars since you really like us. Either way you are welcome another time. Best regards Mads.knudsen@scandichotels.com More
