    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.
