Gret location, awesome breakfast!!!

Family trip
Very good breakfast but the room condition is not very good (probably they have better room, but my comments on the one we stayed!). Hotel is at the heart of transportation, wherever you want to go, just walk out the hotel door and get into your preferred transportation.

Good 6,0
only for the breakfast
just ok, the room was small, no hairdryer and badly laid out. the Byporten is a better choice for the two scandics side by side. Solid breakfast though, bravo.

It’s a good hotel in central Oslo.. love it!
It is a hotel known for its convenience.. close to the railway station and within walking distance to businesses and sightseeing attractions. The breakfast buffet is FANTASTISK.. This was my 8th stay.

A mixed bag.
First, the good points. Excellent location near main train station and public transport, in centre within easy walking distance to most sights. Good value for Norway. Very good breakfast, friendly and helpful staff there and at reception. Minuses include rather uncomfortable beds compounded by annoying 2 single duvets for a double; Scandinavian design in the reception and bar area but certainly not in the rooms or the rather shabby corridors; problems in the room with neither hot water nor telephone working (but swiftly dealt with by staff); wifi ok on my smartphone but not laptop; compulsory ventilation system can't be adjusted in room, I found it cold and was advised to turn radiators on!.

Good central location.
Location was good with lots of stuff to see around it. Breakfast was great with a smorgasbord. Driving in Oslo sucks, specially downtown nothing to do with the hotel.

All good
It was very nice, not 5 star, but 4.. We asked to borrow an umbrella for walking in the rain.. Not available. A 5 star hotel would say yes Sir, please take an umbrella. Room was good, breakfast was good, nice friendly front desk staff. But no umbrella:)

Great place.. great price
Great hotel, super location, rooms are small but no big deal.. the breakfast buffet is awesome..the fresh berries are something else to behold..One small issue, Room 515, right next to the elevator mechanism...hotel offered to change rooms, I stayed in it because, it was cozy. Six time customer, I keep coming back.
