This little gem 💎 is right smack in the central area. 1km down Karl Johan gets you to the super brands shops. Verve across the road leads you to the Oslo Central Station where most trains including the speedy Flytoget from Oslo airports stops here.

Great location, great room and good value for money. Clean, convenient, polite, effective and smiling staff. The hotel is satisfying in every way, as a regular at Scandic hotel this is my favourite Scandic hotel because of the friendliness of the staff. They have a new dinner eve

Where to start??
I don't normally write reviews.. however.
Double bed - you can only get into the bed from one side, you have to crawl over your partner to reach the other side.
No where to store/keep any cases.
You have to hang your clothes on a rail above the bed you're sle

The room was claustrophobically small, as broad as the length of the bed. Woke up in the middle of the night due to noisy tram outside. Also bad sound isolation towards the hallway and rooms in proximity. Cheap and central location. Will not come back.

Response from ScandicKarlJohan, General Manager at Scandic Karl Johan
Responded 2 weeks ago
Hello Birgitte B, Thank you for staying with us. We are sorry to hear that you were not satisifed with your stay. Our standard rooms are small, they are only 10 sqm but we do offer larger rooms for a small additional fee. The tram is unfortunately a part of the cental location in the middle of the city. The hotel is located on a normally quiet side street and the tram is not often heard, sorry to hear that this was not the case for you. We are sorry to hear that you wont come back to us but hope that you will find another Scandic hotel that fits your preferences better. Kind regards, Therese Fredriksson

Hi we booked a family room in June for three adults. Are your sofa beds are comfortable enough for an adult? Thank you.
Hi Jorge, thank you for your question. Our sofabeds are 140cm and comfortable for adults, I have slept in it myself once to make sure that it is suitable for adults. Best regards, Therese Fredriksson, General Manager

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.

Hi, I am flying into Rygge airport, which is an hour away. can you help book at taxi? I can't find a phone number on your website.
Thanks. I called the hotel desk but they said they cannot help book an airport taxy, so I booked the flybus. It seemed on the expensive side anyway. Thanks for your help! How does one get from the Oslo Bus terminal to your hotel in Arbeidergata Oslo at 00:30 (it's late night/early morning). A taxi may be safer than walking?

"Upgrade from standard to get bigger room, unless you like dungeon like small spaces."
"All rooms are similar"
"My room was in the front overlooking a street but there was no noise at all."
"Possibly the front rooms might have a better view? but I was not bothered."
"Reserve a bike ahead of arrival."
