Stay at one of Oslo’s most central hotels. Under the same roof as Byporten Shopping Centre and within walking distance of Karl Johans gate, the urban Grunerlokka district and the Opera. A superb hotel for anyone wishing to explore the city of Oslo, with public transport right on your doorstep. Just walk out of the station, into the plaza, turn right, through the revolving doors and you have arrived. Here you’ll find delightful shopping districts, nightlife and countless restaurants right on your doorstep. Experience the throng of Karl Johans Gate, with row upon row of shops and cafes. Scandic Byporten is located in the same building as Byporten shopping centre. Here you will find a large selection of shops and cafes. The urban and charming Grunerlokka district is just a few tram stops away. Here you will find popular nightspots, restaurants and cafes. If culture is your thing, the Opera, Folketeateret theatre and Akershus Fortress are also nearby.

The room was not made when I entered it at 11 in the evening. Garbage from Burger King was all over the room. They did not try to humour me by upgrading me. Tonight was the one night in all my life that I needed to get away from home. This is my first, and hopefully, last bad review that I ever write. Being greated by an unmade room is so substandard, especially in these Corona-times. Will not stay at Scandic ever again if I can avoid it. Not happy!

Hi Ketil, Thank you for taking the to review your stay, we need guests like you to be able to improve ourselves. Something that clearly is the case here. This should of course not happen, the room had been put in a clean status although it wasn't, if it was due to a technical or human error is hard to say, nevertheless I have brought it forward to the team so that we will eliminate future episodes of the same kind. Having said that it doesn't change your experience and I cannot deeply enough express my apologies. I fully understand that your trust in us has weakened, however if you decide to give us a second chance, do send me an email to mikael.pohjonen@scandichotels.com and I will do my outmost that your next stay will meet (and hopefully exceed) your expectations. Hoping to hear from you and once again, my apologies for the situation. Best regards, Mikael Pohjonen General Manager

For the price that I paid, I expected better quality. The bed was not comfortable, neither the one pillow that I received. The duvet was also of cheap quality and the room was too warm. The shower had no soap in the soap bottle. Everything looked aged and not well looked after. The whole experience felt cheap and not taken care of. The staff was friendly.

Dear Daniela, Thank you for taking the time for reviewing your stay with us, we need guests like you to be able to improve ourselves. Something that clearly is the case after reading about your experience. It is of course great to see that my colleagues did such a good impression. However, it is with nothing but pain I understand that we didn't manage to live up to your expectations overall. I don't know if you informed us about the issues during your stay but I would like to forward my sincere apologies if we were not able to find a quick solution. We have acted on your feedback and implemented two pillows in all rooms, regardless of single or double occupancy. I have also made sure to forward your feedback about the missing soap, it should of course not be like that, our maintenance colleague will also make sure to go over the room to see what improvements can be made. I fully understand that your trust in us has weakened, however we would be so happy if given a second chance. If you decide so, please send me an email to mikael.pohjonen@scandichotels.com and I will make sure to make my outmost that your next stay meet (and hopefully exceeds) your expectations. Once again, I am terribly sorry for your experience and I hope to hear from you! Warm regards, Mikael Pohjonen General Manager

This hotel is attached to the main Oslo train station, and sits above a large shopping mall in the middle of the city. When you exit the station into the main square, look to your right and you'll see the hotel sign above. You can enter from the square without going into the mall. There is also an entrance/exit to the station without going outside. Check in was ok (pleasant enough staff overall) although one was a touch snobby (these types should be ignored). The room was nice. The view was GREAT!! So so beautiful looking out over the square and out to the bay. The bed was comfortable and the room was an OK size for one. Tiny bathroom, but good shower. The hotel would get a 5 star if not for this dumb policy. No early check-in's (even for a small fee) ALL hotels do this, its ridiculous. Clearly many people are arriving on overnight flights, since the luggage room/office was filled to capacity (over 60 bags)...the lobby was full of people waiting, and apparently they were not full the night before. The area is perfect for sightseeing and shopping. Many food places in the mall, or next door in the station/mall building. There is also a giant old world food hall 3 mins from the hotel down the steps off the square. The train to/from OSL airport leaves directly from this station: The train is fairly expensive, but luckily you have the option of the overpriced nonstop express, or a much much cheaper local train that only makes 1 stop (hah) is comfortable, still fast - adding about 5 mins to the journey. Plan ahead and understand the ticket/platform layout - a touch confusing. I highly recommend the hotel (since the early check in issue was its only flaw) not bad.

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience in such a detailed way, it is highly appreciated both by us and future guests. Great to read that you overall had a great experience although it is of course saddening to read that the experience wasn't flawless and beyond expectations, something we strive for everyday. Most hurtful to read was that we didn't manage to give you more than an ok check-in. With regards to the early check-in, we do have that opportunity if you prebook it via our own websites, you will then, against a small fee, be guaranteed the first room ready. I am unsure what day of the week you arrived but Fridays and Saturdays are typically challenging days with early check ins as the previous guests have used the rooms until 12.00. Nonetheless, I am sincerely sorry that this affected the overall experience. Hoping to see you again! Warm regards, Mikael Pohjonen General Manager

This hotel has the perfect location right next to Oslo S and shopping and dining downtown, Oslo. The staff really wants to help and they give great service. You often get a great upgrade for a small price. Lovely rooms and good breakfast at Egon.

This hotel is in the perfect location . If arriving by the airport train , exit the main entrance facing Jernbanetorget , the hotel entrance will be on right side . You will see the restaurant Egon and the circular revolving door . Enter there and the reception will be through the doors on the right . I was in room # 555 for 5 nights facing the square. The room was nice had enough room for my belongings and was equipped with a hot water kettle, windows that open and hot water in the shower. The breakfast buffet at the adjoining restaurant Egon is one of the best . Tourist Information center close by and easy to use bus and tram . Easy to walk to most sites . I would recommend this hotel .
