The Scandic Oslo is very conveniently located close to the Oslo airport. There are frequent shuttle buses from the airport to the property. Take Route S55 from the arrivals area, tickets are prices at 70 nok per person and can be purchased onboard with Visa / MasterCard cards.
The buffet breakfast had a lovely spread with mix of hot and cold buffet menu.
The staff and service levels are very good. We had a match to watch at the bar, and the staff obliged by allowing us to order from the restaurant and dine at the bar.
Dear Abhishek S. Thank you for giving us this great review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Welcome back another time. Best Regards Helene, Front Office Manager
This is an attractive, modern hotel. It serves a beautiful breakfast buffet. The room was nice, a bit noisy until about 9 pm from the passing airplanes.
Parking was very unsatisfactory. It was in a dusty, rough lot in back of the hotel operated by an independent company. You must have a chip-and-pin card to operate a machine, and we didn't have one, so at hotel directions we had to "call that company and give them our credit card info". We had encountered this "independent company" practice at another Scandic hotel, so maybe this is a Scandic-wide practice? Our opinion is that this is an outrageously customer-unfriendly gouge, making a few extra dollars without regard to the stress and inconvenience of its customers.
Dear 22explorer22. Thank you for staying with us and leaving us a kind review. We value your feedback. Unfortunately the parking is not owend by the hotel, that way it is a independent company that is running it. Kind regards Helene, Front Office Manager
This was a three night business stay with business colleagues, working from Oslo airport. Firstly, not to be confused with other Scandic hotels just down the road! This hotel was ideal for our needs: comfortable, quiet, smart and stylish. Check in was efficient, and I was pretty impressed with my room on the ground floor. A large size, sufficient storage space, comfortable bed, nice bathroom, very clean and very quiet despite the hotel being quite close to the western runway. Surprisingly, no blinds, and the curtains are not really good enough to keep the summer light out.
The hotel has a large bar and lounge, a good place to relax prior to or after dinner. That said, I didn't have dinner in the hotel so can't comment further.
As we had a hire car, we parked in the car park behind the hotel; credit card payment, about €13.00 for 24 hours which seems to be the going rate. There is also a service station locally by roundabout, certainly quieter and probably cheaper to fill up prior to returning a hire car to the airport. For those without cars, there are frequent airport shuttle buses from directly outside the hotel, NOK70 and tickets can be purchased at reception.
Great breakfast and lots of seating. Starts at 06:30, but be warned, the bus tour grazers will be there early and will decimate the spread, keeping the staff on their toes to keep the options replenished!
In conclusion, we enjoyed our stay here and would gladly use this Scandic again.

Modern hotel, nice atmosphere, excellent bar. Good rooms, clean, good bed. More darkness would be better though, curtains not good enough. Great breakfast with more than enough choices. Friendly staff as well.
