3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We had three nights here with 2 teenagers in a family room. Typical older Scandic property, could do with decorating and updates to furniture although definitely not the worst have been in. Staff were all really nice and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. We used the attached restaurant for one evening and it was very good.

Stayed at Scandic City one night before big job in Fredrikstad, arrived late, but got good help from reception finding a place to park our van. Large room, not the most modern, but great internet access, and a very good breakfast with perfect eggs.

Basically, the room was just like any other hotelroom, noting to complain about. Also the receptions was friendly and helpful. There was a safe parking place for the motorbike. But what really was excllent, was the breakfast. In fact, it would take several mornings to taste everything. Within one morning, you simply can't taste everything.

I'm baffled with the high score this hotel has, it doesn't deserve anything above 2 stars, and those two comes from working A/C, the water pressure (the temperature doesn't hold, but the pressure is constant), and location. The staff was off-putting, had no desire to help you, and some of them were outright arrogant. The third floor is not accessible... More

Scandic. It is what it is. Good value for the price and they allow doggies for an extra price. We like this a lot. Their brunch buffet is great and varied. The rooms are nice and clean and the clerks are friendly. We arrive at all times of the hour and we never have problems checking in.

I stayed in the hotel for one night, and that was enough. Although the hotel is centrally located I got all things I needed, I did not like it there. On arrival we were welcomed by a nice receptionist. We could park in the garage under the hotel, which was nice in the cold weather (Parking is NOK150 per night).... More
