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 here for two nights while on a business trip. The hotel is an eclectic mix of styles and so has a quirky feel to it. The hotel is central and so very easy to explore the town and locate restaurants and bars. My room was basic and had the feel of being in a hostel. I was on... More

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

Visited the show and christmas-buffet, had no room. Show ok. Christmas-buffet....well, like every other Christmas-buffet. Food ok, nothing to write home about when food is served like in the army. Waiter, with a smile and pleasant comments, was never to far away so beer, wine and water was never empty for long. Ok experience, nothing more.

Stayed in City hotel with my brother and sister again at the end of october, and yet again we were pleased with our stay. Staff were friendly as always, the room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was good - although I wish they could provide anchovies!

I had to live in Fredrikstad for some months because of my job and I lived at the Scandic City.
