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!
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.
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.…
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 .
