One star for stealing our Samsung tablet that we left behind. Housekeeping wouldn't get back to the front desk about it...Why would you want to stay at a hotel with thieving housekeepers? How do you know your things are safe when they come in to clean? Also one star for for not having days/hours for the restaurant/bar listed on the...

Scandic Helsfyr is a hotel which is suitable when you are looking for an uncomplicated stay with little fuss. The rooms are spacious and adequate, with nice bright views of the surrounding area. This is not the hotel you would choose for a special occasion or a romatintic week-end. The most remarkable feature is av great breakfast spread. There is...

Hi and thank you for your kind feedback. We try to make it simple to choose healthy and make it easier to have allergies, by not mixing to many foodgroups. Welcome back another time!

I stayed a week on business and found it satisfactory. I've stayed here before as the hotel is located very close to where I do business. It's a five minute walk from the Metro if you need to travel downtown. Scandic Helsfyr accept American Express.

My family stayed here for a conference week. Great breakfast, comfortable beds and pillows. Short walk to the underground train. There is not too many other eating places walking distance, so it was is the choice of the in house restaurant or a short trip on the underground. Would happily stay here again if the rooms were a good rate.

Thank you for your feedback. High expectations is the mother of all disappointments; one wise man once said. When you had low expectations it should'nt be so hard to meet them, and for this I am sorry. I don't know whether we got this information and could rectify it there and then, but I will bring your feedback on to...

Located quite a distance from Oslo city centre but easily accessed by metro. Found reception staff could be more friendly. Excellent breakfast with great selection. Kids loved it.

This hotel is conveniently located near the subway that takes you into central Oslo within minutes. He hotel is modern and the rooms are inviting and attractive.

We were headed to Gothenburg, Sweden to celebrate our wedding anniversary this saturday, but figured the drive from Bergen was a little long in one go, so we put in a night in Oslo in between. We chose the hotel initially because we've had pleasant stays with Scandic hotels before. Placement: the hotel seems localized in an industrialized part of...

Travelling a lot in my work I have grown to love the Scandic concept. Top service, good fitness rooms, clean and nice, simple rooms, always a friendly staff – what more do you need?
