This is a nice hotel 10 min away from Oslo sentrum with the subway. very nice rooms and a ok restaurant. perfect location if you want a quiet stay but in the same time live sentral. ps. The subway from Helsfyr also goes directly to Holmenkollen skiareana if you like skiing.

I liked the hotel, and my room was large (I like large rooms). Breakfast was great, a plus too! But: The bath was made for disabled persons. Unfortunately it's not made for non-disabled. It will be wet all over if you take a shower (there is no border and just a curtain, so nothing to keep the water from flowing...

Once again a great stay. Rooms are quiet and warm. The staff are friendly and attentive. Especially during the very icy weather, warning everyone to be careful outside. The food is very good both at breakfast< a wonderful choice, and evening meals.

Visiting a local business to give training, I arrived a day early on the Saturday, to give me the Sunday to see Oslo (which I didn't: apart from a few restaurants, Oslo is closed on a Sunday!).

This hotel was £60 a night, which we found very reasonable, well linked to public transport (around 15 mins to get into the centre of Oslo by underground or bus), clean and smart. We were not looking for a luxury hotel with added extras, just somewhere to rest our heads, and we found the Scandic to be very adequate. The...

Stayed for a week as I was doing a course in Oslo at GlobalKnowledge. The location of the hotel is perfect if you are in Oslo for a course there or at Glasspaper.

I stayed at this hotel quite some times, but I think I'll find a better restaurant next time in Oslo. I've have different kind of food here but this time I noticed twice that the food was not as hot as I expect it to be. A la carte meal prices are high for the quality of the food.

Hi Pieter, Thank you for giving us feedback on your stay with us. I am sorry to hear that you did not receive as hot food as expected. I have informed the kitchen and restaurant staff about this.

Stayed for one night on business. Very much a standard Scandic hotel - fine, but quite expensive for what it is. There's no minibar in the room and instead a snack bar in reception. Beds are comfortable enough, the room is quite light as there was a big window. It's in a fairly industrial area so not a great place...
