The Scandic Oslo City has a very good location arriving Oslo by train or bus - the hotel is located a 5 min walk from the station. The subway station is right outside the front door and the tram stop is also right around the corner. Great shopping very close, the shopping center Oslo City and Byporten right across the...

We had a spacious room on the 4th floor. Twin beds plus 1 single for a 4 year old. Nice hotel with good facilities and brilliant location, we walked everywhere. My only negative comment, (same as our other Norwegian hotel) the windows are easy to open and open all the way out, I found this terrifying at the end of...

Location is great, right across the street from Oslo S (Central Station). You can access trams, buses, everything from here. Rooms are quite small (no Kettle (!)) with cheaper options, but asking for a slight upgrade will bump you up with double the space, windows that open and a friggin kettle. My first room was really squishy with no space...

I was staying in Oslo on a short city break and wanted to do a tour of the main sites. The Scandic Oslo City was a perfect base for this, right next to the train station and Karl Johans Gate (main shopping street). Most things were in walking distance but getting to attractions such as the Viking Ship Museum was...

We spent one night at the Scandic Oslo City Hotel. The hotel is located directly opposite the Oslo S train Station. The hotel is very comfortable with good size rooms. The only thing that puzzled us is why a double bed has two separate duvet's? Seemed strange to us. The breakfast was a delicious buffet with very friendly and helpful...

This is as basic as hotels get! No facilities in room - kettle, iron, bedside table, minibar, clock, etc - tiny uncomfortable bed which wasn't even properly made! Felt like walking into a 1980s student residence! Awful.

Breakfast and service was great, room was clean. Hotel is old. There's a lot of uneven wood stuff on the long hallways causing me to trip a couple of times. Our stay was okay, could be better. Not a 4-star.

The location is perfect! Very close to the Oslo S train station and the main street Karl Johan. We only stayed 1 night and couldn't enjoyed the breakfast or other amenities like the bar, but the front desk staff is extremely welcoming and helpful. Rooms are extremely small.
