What is good about the hotel: Close to the railway station and shopping. I had a depressing room, small, dark, not clean. The room was in need of renovaton. This was one of my worst hotel experiences ever in relation to the prize.

I stayed 3 nights at the Scandic Oslo City. The hotel is located directly across from the central train station (with a super fast and easy train to and from the airport, so early departure time was no sweat). The rooms are small-ish but sufficient, well designed and clean. Plenty of space for one, cozy for two, probably wouldn't have...

We were concerned when we got off the train from the airport and no one we asked seemed to know where this hotel is located...there are several Scandics in Oslo. Turns out it's tucked into a corner building right across from the train station with one side on Karl Johans Gate, the main street, so the location is very convenient....

Nice central location !! Pretty Average European hotel - smallish rooms/ bathrooms - but in good central location. Close to akke brugge / main shops / bars / restaurants/ station/ etc...... Reasonable buffet breakfast.... Would stay again - but would also look at hotels near opera house area.....only 10 mins away walking.

The hotel environment is very cozy and the rooms are inviting and very clean. But the most important for me was how close it was to the Karl Johan Street and the big shopping malls. Also the bus & tram terminals are a 1 minute walk from the hotel entrance.
