Today it is more important for customers to have access to internet rather than many other things that hotel can offer. I was there for two nights because of business and the internet connection was so terrible that I rather used my phone as a hotspot (I am not from Norway so it was on roaming charges). There was not... More

Stayed for 3 nights in this brilliantly located hotel, close to train/bus stations and ideal for the Opera House. It couldn't really be in a better location for us. Hotel seemed very popular.

It was a pleasure to stay at Scandic Byporten, like every other time I've stayed there. The hotel is perfectly positioned next to the Airport Express, the Railway and the Tube. The staff is friendly and helpful. and this time they let me have a nice suite, not just the ordinary room.

Nice room and bathroom. View was not that exiting but the hotel were located in the heart of Oslo near Spectrum were we saw a concert. Service was great and parking ok, the cost was rather expensive even though we got a better price trough the hotel. Very nice breakfast in a cosy restaurant.

Overall very nice, but the breakfast facilities have much to be desired. Very cramped, few available tables and claustrophobic. But great staff, lovely rooms and good service in general. Location is very practical, especially on short in-out business trips.

Hello Arne F, We appreciate your feedback, thank you for praising our staff and rooms. Egon has just made some adjustment to the buffets and interier.
