Room clean and compact Breakfast fantastic - waffles, eggs (hard or soft boiled), fish, meat, cheese, bread, muesli, loads of juice types, tea, coffee.... BRILLIANT! However, it's the staff who are the outstanding thing about Scandic Vulkan, esp. Villius and Rosa (housekeeping) who helped us at 1.30am on the day we arrived when we tried to get into our luggage...

I have been here for the fifth time. Is very centrally located. Sorry, no improvements / renovations have been made for years. Breakfast is top !! Gym could be better. However, for business travel I would recommend it.

The breakfast was fantastic with lots of choice. The location was also very good with a bus stop not far away. However Oslo is quite compact so we walked quite a long way into town one day and it didn't take very long. Our room was very clean and the bathroom was spotless. The hotel was different to many other... More

Good location right next to "Mathallen". Short distance to walk (10-15 minutes) and you are right in the center of Oslo. Interesting view from our room in the 9th floor. Very nice room with big windows. Great bed. The breakfast was lovely and with variety. Due to the Biathlon Worldchampionship in Holmenkollen all hotels were quite busy, but this was... More

Immediately when entering the lobby, I felt relaxed. The design, a tasteful mix of old style and modern is in a way which is difficult to define, calming.

Apart from the size of our room, everything was splendid. A buffet breakfast way beyond normal standard, the location perfect , the staff professional. Just a stone's throw from Mathallen, Oslo's gourmet shopping mall.

So this hotel is rated 4 stars. IMHO it is the equivalent of a 3 star US hotel similar to a nice Holiday Inn or Fairfield Inn. The hotel is not luxury by any means, but neither is the price. It is VERY clean and the staff is VERY friendly and helpful, especially Lana at the front desk. The hotel... More
