Varna, Bulgaria

Very convenient location - few meters form the central railway station. Traditional Scandinavian quality. Time to time you can feel train vibrations and the breakfast restaurant is not so convenient. Otherwise it is perfect for one or two nights.

We choose this hotel as it was so close to the train station. It is convenient for walking throughout the city. Breakfast is in a restaurant directly opposite and it was a very impressive selection. Although it was a little annoying walking so far to and from the buffet to our table, this included 2 short flights of stairs. Not...

Went to this hotel during my business trip to Oslo. The location was perfect, close to a lot of communications. When I came to the hotel and wanted to check in, they could see I had booked the wrong dates (the day before) and that I had been charged for that. The girl in the reception was very helpful an...

at the arrival at the Scandic Byporten, at 11.30 P.M., we were told that the hotel was fully booked and that there were no rooms available, they would have provided us with one room for two people ( sharing the same room, even though we had two different reservations ) in another hotel paying the taxi to get to the...

We stayed for one night having arrived on the train from Bergen, location is ideal as its right outside the station, it’s also ideal for walking around the city centre attractions and has plenty of bus stops around it. The reception/bar is very nice and the staff were incredibly helpful. The room was very small but clean and comfortable. Breakfast...

Rooms are OK, but a bit overpriced, lounge has some sweet chairs, but the breakfast is a catastrophe. One of the main reasons for picking a hotel at this price level is to enjoy a good and slow breakfast. The hotel breakfast area isn't dimensioned for the number of guests and it doesn't help with a color zone system for...

Dear geirsan, First I would like to thank you very much for leaving your feedback here on Tripadvisor, this is very important to us. I would also deeply apologize for your experience during breakfast. There is a challenge when the hotel is fully booked, and most of our guest prefer to eat breakfast late.

The hotel is contained within the Byporten shopping centre, right next to the main train station, so the location is excellent for exploring Oslo. The room was on the small side, but modern, well appointed and clean. In terms of room size, the room was no less than you would expect from a 3 star hotel in the middle of...
