Are you a fan of full-speed and noisy air conditioner in your room while sleeping? If that is the case, no problem. But if you would like to switch it off, please be aware that you cannot do it: in this hotel the air conditioning is centralised and it works in all rooms at full speed from 7am until midnight,...

We had three nights in this hotel. The rooms are simple but clean. The breakfast is good too, with lots of options. The hotel is only a few minutes walk to Karl Johan gate and the city center. If you come to visit the town this is all you need. Price we paid was good for the quality of the...

I've stayed here many times over the years, and it's one of my favorite places for one night stay. This is were you stay on a single business trip to oslo when you long for quiet space and rest in the middle of the city. Altough with walking distance to the tube and attractions like the royal palace.

Well placed, simple, a bit worn, hotel. But if what you need is a bed and don't want to pay too much, why not? I slept badly due to a very noisy air-conditioning system. Could not figure out any way to turn it off. Good breakfast, kind staff.

Welcoming and nice lobby-area with coffee and tea free of charge for guests. However, the reception seems to be sparsely staffed at times. Rooms are quite simple, and the placing of the furniture might not be the most functional. The room is nothing to brag about, but you have what you nee, included a mini-refrigerator. The bed was good. Breakfast...

Was chosen primarerly because of a very Central location - under 5 minutes walk to Everything in Oslo. The hotell is in an older building and it was very noicy. City tram on both sides of the hotel. Very good service, small rooms and a bit wearned down feeling. Breakefast was not up to expected Scandic standard.

The only good thing about this place is its central location. The rest was subpar in all categories. The first room I was assigned had not been done up properly and I had to switch to another one. The heating was not working in the second room (Oslo weather was unseasonally cold) so I had to be moved to a...

Stayed at this hotel for a business trip. Excellent breakfast. Very comfy beds. My room was on the quiet side, so good quality of sleep. I was lucky though, as they had run out of standard rooms, and upgraded my room for free.

Stayed here for 2 nights during an education course. Very central location in Oslo just a few minutes walk from the to city center.

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....
