Stayed here for 2 nights during an education course. Very central location in Oslo just a few minutes walk from the to city center. A busy city street with a tram line just outside my room created a lot of traffic noise during the day, but it was fairly quite during the night. The hotel is housed in an old...

Great holiday thanks to the Scandic Holberg hotel experience. Rception was very friendly and helpful especially Linda; breakfast was impressive and had a great spread of fresh produce. Rooms were cosy and the entertainment channels on 40" TV were great watching most of the premier league and La liga games live... Really happy with the whole experience, thank you! PS....

There were many Scandic Hotels in Oslo; all clearly marked by location. The Holberg was ideally placed very close to the terminus of the airport bus and a short tram ride away from the university where I was visiting. This is a breakfast-only hotel with very polite and friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent in the food department. I never enjoy...

Friendly efficient staff, good central location. Rooms and communal areas a little tired/dates but clean. No bedside table in rooms which I thought was odd. Where do you put your books, phone etc... Good breakfast

Great hotel that is nearby almost everything. Great staff. Just a short walk to Majorstuen, Aker brygge and Oslo city and with the tramway just outside the hotel, you can go anywhere quite fast. Nice restaurants within the nearest perimiter.

Stayed there two nights. It's both close to downtown and the subway, and to the university where you can go easily by tram. The breakfast was great and really diverse, but the place isn't cheap. Good rooms otherwise.
