Old hotel, but renovated last years. Rooms are small and dark, but with more or less fresh interior. Bathrooms and corridors/elevator not up to date, a bit smelly. Breakfast is delicious but served in the lobby. The location is perfect, right in the city center. Easy and free parking in the hotel basement, just ask the front desk to reserve.... More

We just returned from our weekend in Sarpsborg. The hotel is located close to city center. Huge plus was parking for free in front of the hotel. The staff was very service minded and helpful. The hotel itself was a bit dated, but clean. There was a strange smell though the corridors, most probably due to bad ventilation, but our... More

Scandic Sarpsborg is in the very centre of the city. About 8 min walk from the train station. Breaksfast is included but doesn’t meet the normal high standard of Scandic hotels.

Reading all the reviews about the crammed nonexisting breakfast and outdated rooms, we had quite low expectations. Room was actually very nice and modern, bathroom small, but useable and breakfast exceeded our expectations. Although room for breakfast being small, being bit early or late to breakfast has no feeling of rush or crammedness. Service was always nice.

This is just an average hotel. The people were nice and it was clean, but we didn't even get fresh glasses in our room each day or extra toilet paper.

I believe this is Norway in general... 2,5 meter wide double room, 2,2 meter long bed leaves 30 centimeters to pass. Even most Japanese rooms are larger. No in room conveniences like water heater, coffee maker, fridge, iron. One chair in a double room !!!! Bathroom so narrow you need to go sideways to pass
