This hotel is located in central Oslo very near to the Oslo-S train station. It is easy to walk to many attractions from here - the Opera House, the Royal Palace and Aker Brygge are all walkable from this hotel. The hotel itself is lovely. Small rooms but provide a good basic stay. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful. The...

This review should actually be in some ways quite good but in others really bad... Reception: Kind staff, but still not with a full understanding of what it means to be Scandic. Room: I got a very big room (434) but with very little light due to the fact that the room was placed at an internal corner and the...

I had a few nights at the Scandic Oslo City in May 2015. Before travelling to Norway I saw a few reviews for the hotel which mentioned the surrounding area being unsafe. These seem to be from a few years ago and while straying north or east of the hotel takes you through less desirable areas, the immediate surround is...

The hotel is centrally located and the staff is friendly and helpfull. The standard room is very small, rather book a bigger room for comfort. No tea/coffee station and safe in room are dissappointing. The cleaning is average. The breakfast was good with a big variety.

Central location near train station and major bus links around Oslo. Very handy for getting around. Central location on Karl Johnas Gate great for tourism and shopping. The central location also provides ample noise. Not the hotels fault, but it does impact upon the amount of sleep you get. Room is well appointed in that modern European way. Separate douvet...
