    Very difficult vote: the location is perfect, in the centre of the city, close to everything. The room are very small, without a desk to work on. Breakfast is ok, nordic style but with enough variety. The store staff is professional

    Når det var HTL måtte frokost kjøpes separat. Etter Scandic tok over er frokost inkludert i prisen.

    Hi We arrive to Oslo soon. We will arrive at Rygge airport at night next week and will be getting the express coach to the central bus terminal at 11:45pm. I assume that we will arrive at the central bus station at 12:45am. Is it safe to walk through the city with our suitcase from the station to the hotel this late at night? Or should we look for alternative travel?

    Yes. It's only a few hundred metres up the main well lit thoroughfare of Oslo.
