Very convenient location - 1 minute from a central station and 10 minutes to all main attractions. Maybe a littlle too loud if your room faces the square in front of the hotel. But this is a problem of all hotels located close to the station, I believe. Nice rooms, good breafast, friendly staff. Price is ok for Oslo. I...

Good location but in serious need for a renovation. Those hallways with old carpets were not pretty... also thought the superior room was too basic, no view, very plain bathroom.. not worth the extra $ On the plus side they did offer a rich breakfast buffet and the staff were very friendly and helpful. They truly went out of their...

Hello Thank you for staying with us this July. All the rooms and the common areas were finished refurbished in 2014. We are awaiting the renovation of the hallways, but we will eventually take those as well. I hope you had a great stay in Oslo and thank you for the nice remarks on our staff and breakfast.

I confess I was expecting more for the amount of money I paid. However this is Norway, where everything is awfully expensive, so I guess it was my fault. My room wasn't big, but the airconditioning was working, and that was a must considering the heat wave also Norway experienced in June-July. This hotel is really central and really 100...

Very reasonably priced, perfectly placed, good breakfast, nice people. The room is small, but clean, the shower good. So if what you need is a place to stay near all the sights ... go for it. I would not hesitate on coming back.

+ Byporten is in center of the city, located next to the train station, with conection to the airport. Breakfast was great. Free coffe all day long. Perfect for short stay. They checked me in before 12 :) - Cleanliness not the best.

Reviewed 24 June 2015

A great base for touring in Oslo, especially if you are travelling by train. But do know you’ll be getting quite small rooms. It’s a short walk from the train station. There are Scandic signs on several buildings, so without specific directions, you can end up walking around looking for it. If you are exiting the train station, turn right,...

I`ve used this hotel on several occasions over the years when visiting Oslo, both through work and leisure. I have always been very pleased with the service and the standard, but I feel that the hotel has goen down hill after Scandic took over from Rica.

Hotel located ideally by central station. Good free wifi. My room was upgraded to a "superior extra" which had lots of space (although teeny shower cubicle - what's with that?!) This is by no means the fault of the hotel but I failed to sleep the whole night due to a cleaner on a cherry picker jet washing the building...
