Check-in was not great as I got some kind of hearing impaired old man who refused to acknowledge Norwegian language. Why do they put these staff at front desk?
Room was small but nice enough, lovely bathroom with rainfall showerhead and nice amenities. Free and fast internet. Iron, shoehorn and earplugs available.
Room was noisy, I could hear drunk people in the street (I was at the back) and was woken again by garbage collection from 5AM. Not a great nights sleep. Surely not something new here as they supply earplugs in the rooms.
Breakfast was excellent, including many organic choices. Only surprise was that breakfast was not included in my rate, which I have never experienced before in Scandinavia. apparently because they are only some kind of affiliate member of Scandic. I can tell you that this hotel in most ways is above and beyond all normal Scandics.
I also did not get my airline miles, the grumpy front desk man also managed to register the stay to my Scandic account, which I dont use. I dont understand how that happened, because I never gave him the card, and it was not in my corporate booking profile. He must have entered it himself. Oh well.More
