Really nice hotel, not too far away from the inner city. There's a market hall right next to it, as well as several clubs and restaurants. Staff is very friendly and helpful, breakfast offers a wide range of dishes, perfect. Gym is a bit small, but okay, if there are just two or three persons working out. Would stay there...

Stayed here in January, somewhat out of the center of town, but is close enough to walk. The hotel sits right next to a nice food hall. We stayed here to be close to grunerlokka. Our room was small but was modern and clean, great price. The thing that stood out to us was the exceptional breakfast, so many options...

The rooms are terrible, staff non interactive, no fitted sheets available, no hot water kettle or tea in the room, ghastly interiors, unkempt interiors/bathrooms, breakfast was badly made, tables were not cleant , basically they are understaffed looked like, list can just go on and on but nothing will change here I believe so just don't go.

There is nothing more I can do here than to regret strongly that you got such a bad experience when you visited our hotel. If there is anything I can do to correct the impression, please send me a personal message! On behalf of the entire staff, we are truly sorry.

The Scandic Vulkan is placed close to the Aker river in the center of Oslo. This is a great spot if you have business at Grunerløkka or other areas close by. The hotel provides a great restaurant and a modern design. Only bad experience is the shower, where the water hardly was dripping at full volume.

Thank you so much - a really nice review! And we will do everything we can to make sure the water pressure is better - despite our eco-friendly hotel. Hope to see you again the next time you visit Oslo!

The breakfast is great, Reception desk is fine and very helpful. There no fitted sheet in the beds, just a small piece of linen, so basically you sleep on the mattress that dozens of people have used. The towels are tiny and worn out!

Reviewed 11 February 2017

Just as expected and a bit more compared to the prize level. The breakfast was varied and the food was fresh. Location wise it is central with all necesseties just a walk from the hotel. The view from the room was not ideal but that was not of importance for us at this time.
