We came to Oslo as part of our honey moon travels. They hotel was very accommodating, our check-in was easy and the receptionist was super friendly. Oh, and our included breakfast buffet was awesome, but I only base on that on the one thing I tripped down on - the lox cream cheese and toast. All super fresh and tasty!...

It's right in the centre, you can walk to most attractions from there. Nice, comfortable rooms, polite and friendly staff. Breakfast is really great - lots and lots of fish to experience Norway, but you can also have traditional breakfast stuff.

First the positives, the hotel is in a central location, very close to the ferry and the station. A hint, if you catch the train in, get off at National Theatre station not central, it's about half the distance (400m), downhill, and no obstacles, so no need to get a taxi as suggested in an earlier review. We walked everywhere,...

Dear Car0made, thank you for writing about your stay here with us and thank you for noting all the positives. We will refurbish the lobby (build a gym) and the restaurant later this year. The rooms were updated between 6-3 years ago so they should be quite ok - we do schedule regular maintenance as well as repairs. The shower...

We recently returned from Oslo and only having a few days there wanted to pack as much as we could into our visit. We like to walk and therefore wanted a good central location as our starting point. The Scandic Victoria met all of our requirements. Close to Oslo Central Train Station, the harbour and all the attractions! Although our...

This is hotel is in an excellent location and the breakfast (while crowded and busy) is delicious and generous. Our room was a bit tatty and the airconditioning didn't respond to adjustments so we cooked (in April!). The staff were ok but certainly not friendly. Mostly it felt like a big, impersonal hotel (with a coffee machine in the lobby...

Dear AFlyingKiwi, I was sorry to read your review and that you experienced our staff as less than friendly - all staff should at all times be minimum friendly. Our lobby coffee machine did break down so we were not able to sell this coffee, however all our rooms offer complimentary coffee so we hoped this would do. The bar...

We spent five nights at Scandic Victoria during late April 2017. The location is great, close to almost everything. We had a nice size room with a good bed. My wife says the bed was the best she has ever had in a hotel. The free wifi worked well. Breakfast was great as they had something for everyone. Staff is...

I stayed here on two occasions towards the end of April. Check in was always easy and efficient, with very friendly staff. I could leave luggage at the hotel, without any extra cost. The breakfast is outstanding, with an amazing variety. The location is perfect and is close to the waterfront as well as the city centre. Wifii is free...

Scandic Victoria is close to the metro stop Stortinget; 5 min walk towards Parliament building. Basic hotel room; price was fair. 5 min walk to Pier 3. Excellent breakfast; crowded between 9 and 10. Very efficient check in and check out.
